Re-Joining SP Community

Saturday, April 27, 2013

It's been a few years since I used SparkPeople on a regular basis. Back then, it helped me lose six full inches off my waist alone, and I became much more athletic and healthy.

However, I made a career change and took a job that required me to be constantly available. I worked all the time and couldn't stick to any type of schedule; I ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the office and even slept there a few times. I couldn't even count on being free on weekends, and several times I went a whole month without a single day off--Saturday/Sunday included.

Needless to say, I fell off the wagon with my diet and workout schedule.

I finally decided to leave my job when they contacted me on my honeymoon. I was lucky to make a lateral move to a totally different field, and for the past month I've been working normal hours again. So, it's time to get back to SparkPeople and lose this weight (again).

I need to lose about 2.5 more inches off my waist. I'm already down 1.2 in the past 3 weeks! My weight is less important to me because I'm already at a healthy weight. I just want to look and feel better and be more fit.

I'm looking forward to doing this again with SparkPeople.

    That was such bad form for your former employer to pester you on your *honeymoon*, of all things! You definitely did the right thing by leaving!

I also am returning - I actually cancelled my previous username account as it was becoming too toxic and negative to continue to sustain......

Welcome back and best wishes1
