Sparkfriends matter

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I haven't been very active in SP but working quietly on my goals. Today FRANKLY5's comments have reinforced my desire to get on track again. Amazing what a bit of support can do!
I've been off sugar for a few weeks and doing exercise and tracking my food until i went away for a week, but I'm continuing now. Unfortunately I relapsed into smoking due to preoccupation with a trip overseas to see my family in March. I feel very stressed about it, but it must be done.
I will endeavour to keep tracking and exercising and in the long run quit smoking. I think I'll be ok off sugar as I got really scared about how much sugar i ingested in December.
Got my pink glasses on.
Ps big storm here the aftermath of ex tropical cyclone Oswald. Everything fine so far.
Life is good

Member Comments About This Blog Post:

    You came to the right place for encouragement. Spark friends are the best in the whole world cause they get how your feeling and are always willing to give emoticon always ready to say emoticon and make you laugh emoticon and they are awesome at keeping you inspired and motivated. I just came back to spark recently too life can't steal my joy and excuses can't steal my life. When you start to get anxious instead of giving up or giving in do something to de stress yoga,walking,dancing problems come up but you can't fall apart and abuse your body cause then it makes it even harder. Keep your head up and keep making small good choices your worth it you want to be calm even in the storm clear thinking when things are crazy. Praying for wisdom and peace for answers and most of all hope. emoticon

    Sparkfriends DO matter! I'm so glad to hear from you, & glad you're working on your health. Here's hoping that the trip proves much less stressful than you anticipate, & that you have smooth sailing as you again become sugar-free & smoke-free.

    Hi Claudia. So glad you are back on T emoticon emoticon rack and on Spark! ..
You did well last year and this year I am sure you will succeed.
I know things come to try us, and that is the problem with people like us and we turn to eating for comfort.
Always in my heart my friend ..
Much Love Susie.
