Back to Sparkpeople

Saturday, January 05, 2013

It's exactly 2 years since I first joined Sparkpeople. In the first 6 months I lost 25 pounds and was so proud of myself. Then we moved, and there was a lot of stress, and I gained back about 10 pounds. Then last June I was dumped, out of the blue, by my husband of 18 years; I was stunned and devastated. So since then I've just been in survival mode, not eating really great or really terribly either, no exercise to speak of. During the holidays I was at a relative's home and stepped on a scale in the bathroom for the first time in probably a year. I didn't know what to expect, but I was happily surprised to find I'm exactly the weight I was when I lost the 25 pounds. I would like to use that as momentum to get back on track to eating better and exercising. I'm going to be easy with myself because I'm in such a dark place right now, but I'm hoping this will give me something to focus on besides my sadness.
