Coming Back is Tough

Monday, July 09, 2012

I feel like a failure.

I know it sounds harsh but it's the truth. I lost 20 pounds three years ago and managed to keep it off for a couple of years, but here I am -- 20 pounds heavier than I was in November.

Granted, I had surgery and was immobile for 10 weeks. Granted, I've been diagnosed with mental illness and psychiatric drugs really screw with your metabolism.

But still, I feel like a failure.

I'm going to try to put that behind me and get motivated, knowing that SP has worked for me before. I'm starting to watch what I eat and am trying to get moving (even though my meds rob me of energy). I can walk for 30 minutes a day, right?

No more being a failure. Time to start being a Sparks success.

    emoticon you're not a failure as long as you keep trying! I'm starting small from injuries again. Constantly in fear that the injury will re-occur but I'm starting walking for 30 mins again too!

    Food is key! Stick to your plan! emoticon
