Well, I have fallen off the wagon and didn't pick up for 3 years !?!@#?!! Time really flies, can't imagine that its already 3 years since my successful journey to healthier me. Unfortunately, my journey lasted only for 1 year and then I spent 3 years piling back all the pounds lost back in 2008-2009.
So, I'm back to Sparkpeople, trying to re-start my journey and get down from the current 233 pounds to at least 180 pounds that I succeeded to reach back in 2009.
I never could have imagined that you can gain all the weight back after a whole year of hard work and commitment. I mean, I did know that people tend to gain the wgt back but I was confident that this will never happen to me. I was enjoying the thinner me, enjoying new clothes that I could wear and receiving tons of compliments. I was so proud of myself!
But somehow I let it all slip away, let pounds pile back slowly but steadily. So, I'm back to 233 - my closet is full of nice clothes that are too tight and I practically have nothing to wear to my work. My son graduated from his University and brought me a real nice suit, size 18 /that I thought I was and I told my son that I was 18/ and I can't button it up, its sooo tight. Also, my son's weight ballooned up and I feel guilty that I didn't not instill good habits in him - exercising and eating clean. I feel I should lead by example the healthy lifestyle so that he could follow and become healthy and slim.
I decided to re-join the SparkPeople, repeat the success of 2009, have my family join me in healthy lifestyle and most importanly - maintain the success and continue the healthy lifestyle.
