I love Spark People. Absolutely love it. When people ask how I have lost weight, I give a huge amount of credit to this website and the people here. That said, it's time for me to step back a little.
As tends to happen, life is kicking me in the butt right now. My work schedule changed from never working more than three days in a row, all on second shift, to working a split schedule of 2nd and 3rd with a 6 day in a row streak. I don't know if I'm coming or going most days. I have yet to settle into a routine, because things are always changing. It seems like most days, all I do is sleep and work, and try to spend a little time with my family. My time at the gym and my time at Spark People has suffered.
Because I need to make my family my priority right now, I'm cutting back on the amount of time I spend here. I will still track and will still check in from time to time, but I won't be spending over an hour daily like I have in the past. I've also decided to not participate in any challenges for the month of May. I just don't have the time to be an active participant and I feel like I am letting other members of my groups down by doing so poorly.
I sincerely appreciate all of the friends I have here and all of the unending support I have received. You are all worth your weight in gold!
I'm not leaving forever, just taking some time off to try to get my life (and schedule) in some sort of order that works.
Take care and see you soon!
