It's been more than 3 weeks since I've been able to spend any significant time at Spark...........I injured my back so badly my daily life has been plagued with unbelivably painful back spasms and nonending pain. My life has literally been put on hold...........no walking my dog, only occasional riding in cars (and then, only to go to the doctor), minimal time at the computer, no dancing..........even daily household chores have been difficult........Luckily for me, I hae an unbelievably supportive husband.
This time has made me extremely reflective and thankful for all the blessings in my life .
This back injury followed many months of extreme stress in dealing with issues for my 95 year old mother and my brother who has early onset Alzheimer's.
Now the time has come to reclaim my own life. I'm thankful to Sparkpeople for instilling in me what has turned out to be a a way of healthy living that has become second nature to me. It was a privelage to be a Team Leader for the New Haven Sparkers, but the time has come for me to have less committments and to turn in a different direction as my back situation improves and I re=examine everything in my life.
My husband and I will be traveling more in the future (a mix of business and pleasure) and I can no longer do justice to my leadership role at Spark........
I'll check in from time to time, but the time has come to move on............I wish you all the best in your quest for weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. I know I could not have achieved what I did without Spark and it will remain a part of my life always although more in the background.......
