Last year, this time, I was at my lowest weight. I was putting effort and time into myself. I felt, slept, and looked great. Although life was hectic (my husband was deployed, I was attending classes M-F full-time, and being a mom/dad to our son), I was still able to put the time and attention into eating right and working out. And then January rolled around and I started nursing school. Life has pretty much been put on the back burner because my mind is so exhausted that I just want to sleep when I get the moment to do so. My husband also came home from another year deployment in March, also causing me to put my fitness/eating on the back burner. Throughout the course of the year, I have gained 25lbs. Frightening.
Every few pounds I gained, I would tell myself, "No more. This is the last gain." But it wasn't enough to stop each and every time. Stepping on the scale and seeing a number I haven't seen in over two years ... yikes! So, I'm taking charge, snapping out of denial that what I'm doing isn't hurting me, and getting things right. While being a nursing student is very important to me, I realize that I am an example to my patients and that I should hold myself to a better (not higher) level than what I have been.
So, after several years off from SP, I'm back. Using SP was extremely helpful when I first started my journey back then. So, knowing that it works, I'm here again :)
