to Everyone who left me birthday wishes. I shouldn't be saying that there's nobody to
I will try and get around to all of you to say Thanks, but I'm re-starting out, kind of slow.
2years and 3 months ago and I noticed by some earlier 'other' online blogs that I started out really good with my eating and exercising. But, I allowed the "FUN" here @ SP to take over and it seemed like all I was doing was joining teams, answering questions, striving for the next trophy and staying up late at night to get my recommended daily allotment of SparkPoints. I do admit, there are worse websites - I could've been spending my time!
Nonetheless, somewhere between trying to0 hard and getting wrapped up in everything I stopped trying altogether. Another setback was i started back to college and had a freaky run-in w/an instructor and lost interest in school and everything after that. The weight piled back on. While here at SP, I mananged to get down 172# - but gained it all back and more. Last April, 2011, I hit all the way back up to 195 pounds. That was a freaky time. And lately, although the scale this morning said 180.0, which made me do the happy dance, my body is severely 'fatter' and out of shape. 2 years ago when I weighed 185 pounds, the pictures of my belly were even smaller. Amazing what happens when you head downward towards 50yrs old.
I went and had a mammogram (my first) and the results were normal, so I've come full circle with some other issues and now since I'm taking this new med and the doc is considering putting me on Insulin - fulltime unless I can show remarkable improvement, I've made up my mind to get on with my next 50 years!
