I'm still here and still plugging along. I gained some weight for some reason starting at the end of last year. It's not a lot of poundage but it's still frustrating when I was doing so good maintaining between 135-137. Luckily my clothes still fit just fine. I do have a couple pairs of pants that are a little tight. I do obviously take the blame. I know I have struggled and been relaxed at times with nutrition. I always drink tons of water and focus on getting enough protein and 5+ servings of freggies daily. Sometimes I get a little too much chocolate or cookies though. My exercise is consistent. I run at least 10 miles a week and then ST and do some step or kickboxing when I'm not running. I still have a strong passion and love of my healthy lifestyle. It makes me too happy to ever give up on it. The weight gain has been frustrating but I do think part of it is honestly my hormones. My DH and I have been trying for another baby since last July! I have had problems with my body in this regard. I had hormone levels measured and things are definitely off. It might explain the lack of energy at least if not the weight gain.
I will keep Sparking along and I wish all other Sparkers the best of luck on your journeys!
