WE DID IT, I AM MAINTAINING.


Thursday, June 13, 2013

I went to WW over 10 years ago and got to my goal and lifetime membership...I lost 26 lbs and have been maintaining. I have slipped 2 times during the 10 years and gained 10 lbs. I guess 10 is the magic number for me. The first time was 4 years ago. I had been maintaining for over 6 years so I knew I could do it. I went back to WW and lost that 10 lbs. Last year I lost my wonderful mom and I was so sad during the past Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays that I stopped tracking and gained that 10 lbs again. I gave myself a good talking to, and I have lost the 10 lbs and I am maintaining again. I love SP and the support I get here......I am a person that has to be accountable and Spark People does that for me. I have so many spark friends that are always with me for support. I go to the pages of spark friends that I haven't seen for a while and I write them a little note to let them know they are missed and we want them to come back. I didn't leave SP when I gained that 10 lbs and I was ashamed I had gained that. I continued checking in each day and finally I had that talk with myself. It isn't always easy to stay on track but because this is a lifestyle change....I WORK HARD AT IT EVERYDAY. If I have a bad day, I get back on track so that I can stay on track. You can't STAY on track if you don't get back on to begin again. You have to "keep on keeping on". By "We" did it, I mean my Spark Friends and I.

    What a beautiful inspiration you are!!!

First, I think each of us has that "magic number" in us ... the pounds we gain back before our brains are triggered to get back on the wagon again. Some times we pay attention and that's all we regain. Some times we don't and we continue and override the "magic number"

You really are a wonderful example that when life gets in the way and we do regain the weight, getting back on plan is key and the work can be done! Thanks so much for being here and helping us see the way!!
