I thought I could do this healthy thing without Sparkpeople

Monday, January 28, 2013

Soooo, here it is, January 2013 and I have slipped right back into my old self. It has been two years of slipping and I cannot believe that I did that. I was on top of the world feeling amazing. Then in March of 2011, I went on a spring break trip with my graduating daughter. I came back and had lost weight but ate and drank for a straight week at an all-inclusive. Wow, if I can lose weight on vacation and still enjoy all the delicious treats, I must be able to do this without sparkpeople and tracking. I finally don't have to spend time online and I can just do this on my own. NOW two years later and all 65 pounds back on, plus a few, I just cannot believe it!!! So I woke up a week and a half ago and decided I do need sparkpeople in my life. Soooo, here I am and back with an amazing attitude and I feel better already!!!! I can do this!!!

As I look at the blog I wrote below, I could just cry!!! I can't wait to get back there, day by day!!!

    Awww!!! You and me sister... I hear ya. I just gradually stopped. I look back at the last two years and I just feel...well... stupid I guess... and mad at myself. BUT.. I feel this self awareness now. I feel like, I know I need this thing.. this SPARKPEOPLE. It helps me. Everyone is here to help without judgement. And EVERYONE is like us. They are all searching for their way to be healthier.

    So proud of you!!!!
