Missed You.

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Hey! I'm back. Did you miss me? I missed you - all my Spark-friends.

I've probably been MIA since about late February or March when I started working with my Wellness Consultant. That took up alot of my Spark energy and it was a great experience which gave me imeasurable perspective. I didn't lose any weight, but I did learn alot about myself and my relationship with food and managed to maintain my weight despite eating at least 1800 nutrient dense calories per day!! I now realize that 1200 is just too little for me and was not a good idea for my metabolism either.

So, I've resumed my healthy-eating ways and I've both increased and changed my activity level and have been finally seeing some positive changes on the scale lately. I was sad to see on my weight report that I had gained a full 20 pounds back starting around this time last year, but I'm within 9 pounds of my lowest weight one year ago today, so at least I'm back on a downward trend and have re-gained control before it all came back!!

I've joined Curves, well, actually, I'm working there and I have nothing but really great and positive things to say about it. I'm acutally following their Curves Complete healthy eating program (1500 calories for Phase 2) and am enjoying it immensely. It works, it's healthy, well balanced and gives me lots of energy to keep up with my new workout schedule. I would highly recommend it for anyone, let alone someone like me who may be struggling after having tried just about everything.

Hope to reconnect with lots of you soon. Hope you're doing well and staying healthy!!

Love and hugs,

    Welcome back! emoticon

I'm sorry about your tug-of-war w/ plateaus and pounds added, etc. but I say that I'm glad to read that someone else has done the seesaw that I've experienced over the past 9 months.

But, truly, I believe that what we learn in the journey...(if we apply it!) is what ultimately makes us stronger and healthier as we go forward.

So here's to keepin' on! Choosing wisely! Finding what works for YOU!

    Glad to hear you are doing well!!!! 1200 for an active person really is too low. That is great you are working at the gym! Take advantage of those perks!!!
