I joined Sparkpeople on 3/1/2008. I reached my weightloss goal in the summer of 2009 with a loss of 75 pounds. I maintained until we had a loss in April 2011. The loss of Donald's best friend in North Carolina (we are in Texas) has put us on the road several times to help his family in their time of need. Rick was only 52 years old and his death was sudden and unexpected. Until this point I had not been emotional eating but I started a little bit and lost my focus. I am suffering from what I call "the tomorrow syndrom". That means I'll start again tomorrow but tomorrow keeps on going.
We arrived back home yesterday from a two week trip to North Carolina and I am up 6 pounds from when we left home. I really expected more than that so I was "happy".
I am in year 5 of my Spark journey and I am still down 55 pounds from my start weight. This is a positive and I am starting fresh today. I am praying for the strength to get back on track. I still have a goal to reach 137 pounds. I CAN do this. I WANT to do this. I LOVE Sparkpeople and my Spark Friends.
