At the beginning of this yr. I weighed 342 today I am 329. Not a huge accomplishment for many but for me its wonderful as the previous yr i gained nearly 30 pounds.

I was in a good place. Mind and body where in healthy mode. My grand father passed away on the first of this month and i haven't been quite right since. Exercising still in tack but my eating is slowly deteriorating.

Posting a blog because I just put cookies in the oven. I burnt them emoticon I didn't need them. Ugghhhh I still want them and some fried wings, and every other unhealthy goodie.

Not motivated to eat right but really missing the healthy and happy weight loss feeling.....


The reason why i never wanted to fall off the wagon is because i know how hard it is to get back on!!!!

    You haven't fallen off the wagon you may have leaned to the side but as you can see by the responses to this blog you have lots of SparkFriends holding onto you and pulling you back. Take it one day at a time. Keep your mantra flowing and know that it's a one day at a time journey that you're capable of finishing!

    Come on chick....don't give up on you and your dreams...................I only try to lose
in small pieces.....once I lose that 5 pounds, then I talk myself into trying to only
lose 5 pounds.....
It is a mental game I play.....and it is never easy............would I rather be eating
a nice creamy cheesy casserole with bread, heck yes, BUT

I don't know how old you are, but eventually your health will catch up to you.
Mine did.

I just want you to realize that you always have ....we ......always have trouble
dealing with a death, however, your loved one would not want you sacrificing
your life on the altar of bad health..................
I have dealt with a lot of loss, all my family is gone now....and I hit a road block 3
months ago and my dr. threatened me with insulin if I did not do I
got on the ball and have lost 18 pounds....since Sept. 4th.

When I went for my bloodwork Monday, my blood sugar was way down, my BP was
way down, my cholesterol was way down and all my numbers were great.

You need to do this for you..........

    I needed this poem last week and will probably need it again so I'm sharing it with you. Keep pushing dear friend. We're all in this together.

Don't Quit

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

    yup.. maybe make one of those things your treat after five pounds off, then another one after another five pounds off.
I make my goal only five pounds off.. It is more attainable and not so defeating.. after that five pounds, I go for another five..
