Hello my fellow sparkers. It is so good to be back to SP finally. I've been gone for nearly a year, which was a very stressful time. I know I mentioned that I will be catching up on my writing when I left; but the truth is, I also had to take care of my mom who had become bedridden. She was very ill, and eventually died. We had her funeral last Saturday.
It still doesn't seem real to me that she is gone. She was a great mom and a great women. I feel blessed that we had her in our lives for as long as we did. Although she is gone, and I think of her every day, I realize that she is in a better place now. Somehow, I will deal with her death.
Unfortunately for me, while I was absent, I picked up a lot of the weight that I lost. I know...what a bummer. I contribute it all to stress. It was definitely not fun watching your mother die a little at a time every day.
I have rejoined a few of my old teams and I picked up new ones. I guess you can say that life goes on.
I would like to commit to my daily food plan and an exercise regimen much like I did in the past. I have a positive attitude which I'm convinced will take me a long way.
I would like to salute all of you for continuing your walk in your weight loss journey. I will be walking with you. I know that with enough determination, we will eventually win the battle of the bulge.
Blessings to all of you.
