Focus needed

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Almost a month since I blogged and a lot more than that since I weighed myself (April 30 191 pounds). I seem to have been beset by problems since then family difficulties and domestic disasters (well semi-disasters) that have needed dealing with. During that time I havent been much focused on Spark or Sparking. Apologies to my friends here whom I have neglected.
My elder son has just gone into de-tox for alcohol, obviously a trauma, and I promised myself that once that was settled Id get back onto Spark and onto the scales. Some focus on myself, in fact. 190 pounds!! I was pretty delighted with that having expected much worse.
Over the next few days I kept coming back to the fact that it was very little considering what scant attention Id been paying. SO . . . today I have bitten the bullet and bought a new battery for my scales. Sadly I find I was right 196 pounds actually. So here I go again aiming to lose 5 pounds that I had already lost. However I know it could be worse i.e. more pounds than this re-gained and so more pounds to re-lose. Hey Ho!! Gotta be done. emoticon

    I have to beat you - when I finally stepped on the scale after a winter of denial I had gained about 12 kilos...27 pounds! No wonder I am in such pain! And completely unable to stop bingeing!

    I understand where you are coming from. As my pastor would say, "It's life on the planet!"

You do the best you can, and sometimes that's all one can do.

I too, have had a lot going on and really couldn't focus on much other than being a care giver for my hubby. But that is now done.

So do your best today. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is not even here. And above all don't stress about your eating.

    Considering what you have been dealing with I think 5lbs gained is pretty good going. Obviously you have gained some good habits on Spark emoticon

I have come to accept that it is unrealistic to expect the weight loss path to always move forward straight ahead. There are always going to be twists and turns and times when we double back on ourselves because life gets in the way. The important thing is to keep going regardless.

I am sorry to hear about your son. It sounds as though he does at least accept that he has a problem and is getting help and that in itself is a massive step. It must be a big worry for you and I hope this is the start of a better future for him and the family.

You always have a kind word for others no matter what is happening to you. Huge emoticon to you. xxx

    You've had a lot of hassle of late Sonia and I know how much you worry about your son and in fact everyone ahead of yourself, you are so caring when it comes to family and friends.
You'll soon lose what you've gained, you had decent weather in your favour at last for some long walks and gardening and maybe it's warm enough for a swim in the sea!

Hope all turns out for the best for your son and grandson. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear the news of your son, but I truly hope he is getting the help he needs. Those things are never easy. But we are still here when you get back to us. In the big scheme of things 5 lbs is not that much, you've lost it before and know how to do it again. Hope all is well with you, your sons and your grandsons.

    Life gets in our way sometimes, but we always have SP to come back to. Getting back to the basics is truly the way to go. Don't look at the past, but start from where you are. YOU can do this and WE are here for you. Have a great day 1 ... getting healthier. emoticon

* We've missed you. That being said, one of the blessings of a community is that when one isn't around others are.


"My elder son has just gone into de-tox for alcohol, obviously a trauma, and I promised myself that once that was settled Id get back onto Spark and onto the scales"
* Sorry to hear. Glad that he's getting treatment.


" Sadly I find I was right 196 pounds actually. So here I go again aiming to lose 5 pounds that I had already lost."
* Best of fortune to you!
