Hello Friends

Monday, November 05, 2012

I have made so many false starts, I am embarrassed to even get on Spark People! I was very touched to see many of my long-time friends making comments on my page. My weight is over 200 again. I haven't exercised in over a year and the holidays are approaching. I find this all over-whelming in terms of thinking of losing this weight. I truly feel like a yo-yo. Just wanted to jump on here and say hi. I do think about all my spark friends and miss you. Just feel I have let you down.

    Girl, this my 1st time on in 6 months, probably. My weight is also back over 200 too. But we are here, right, still looking for our way. As long as we are still looking there is a chance we will find it. We make progress with each good choice, one decision at a time. Each good decision is one less bad one, and that, my good dear friend is progress. One foot in front of the other, as Hosta lady, would say! Don't beat yourself up, Lets just start small, ok, you and me. I challenge you and me! I promise to drink 2 extra glasses of water tomorrow. You choose what you will do, but it has to be really small, okay, and completely doable. I'll check in with you tomorrow! Hugs!

    Glad to see you are back!
Well, I didn't leave and I'm at my highest weight ever. Suffice it to say I won't be pointing fingers.

Just jump back on the wagon! emoticon

    Hi Betty, so glad to hear from you! So many of us have been in your shoes. Never ever, ever, ever give up! I had a weight gain earlier this year, but I got right back up and have lost most of the weight again.
You can do it, too! You have many Spark friends here to encourage and support you, and even give you a kick in the butt if you need it!
