Here I am. Forever since I've SparkPeople'd. Feeling guilty. I think, you know, I was down to 199#'s last October. I did it on my own. By just eating right. Then I gained 10#s back because of stressful times. But that's no excuse. Damn it! Focus!
I was getting to my breaking point when a miracle happened. I was sitting in the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, waiting for my layover and checking my email while the aroma of delicious pizza was dancing around me. I was about to head over and divulge when I saw and email from one of my dearest SparkPeople friends. She was checking in on me and telling me that she was stepping back up on the wagon too. We had joined SP the same week and she was a huge support for me. What!? How did she know I was in need of support right now! What a blessing to have this "coincidence"!
I emailed her back and told her of her greatness. However, it still took me 2 months to set up shop back on SP. Regardless, I am here now. I've started the Candida Cleanse to jump start my eating habits. I am through with week 1 and have lost 3#s so far. I feel great.
I have begun to cook regularly and am loving it. I am new to cooking, and like to experiment. There are so many awesome recipes out there and combinations I never dreamed would work together. I am enjoying this new asset to my life. At the moment, I am in love with Almond Butter. You can make dinners and desserts with this stuff. I love it!
I look forward to carrying on and progressing with my SP friends and support. Thank you!
