Trying This Again

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Here I am a little over a week after trying SP for the second time. So far things are going well.

It all started in March 2008 six months after my Mom passed away. I was devastated and turned to food to help me mourn her passing. I'll admit I was already overweight years before she died. After her passing I gained an extra 40 lbs. When I finally snapped out of it (in March 2008) I weighed over 300 lbs. I knew I had to do something. My Mom passed away from heart problems (her weight was just one contributing factor) and I couldn't let myself go down the same path.

I did well on SP. I lost around 30 lbs and was feeling good. But then life happened. I was moving, gotten notice that I was being laid off from work, and then my father passed away. I forgot to take care of myself and never came back to SP.

Here I am now in 2013 and I just can't continue to live the big girl life. I hate myself and the way I look. I hate the fact that I was on the right path years ago and just stopped and ruined it. Most importantly I'm tired of hating myself.

I'm grateful for SP because it puts me in contact with people who understands my struggles. The moment I feel myself slipping, I will run to the message boards to get that push I need.

Here's to a new me! emoticon
