Ok guys I have been away from spark people for a while now and I am not proud of it. I mean we all fall off the wagon once in a while I suppose. Although I didn't just fall off the wagon I fell off and ran it seems because everything I learned and worked for just went out the window when I stepped on the scale at my doctor's office and found out I gained over ten pounds!! I am truly devastated by this gain and what's worse is that now I have to be on medication for high blood pressure and my doctor said that I am in serious risk of having a stroke. Talk about a wake up call huh. Although maybe all this was just the push I needed to get my butt in gear and just make a true effort to lose this weight. I am determined not to let this setback bring me down. No matter how hard it seems right now it will be much harder if I do nothing about getting the weight off. I am young and I am longing to have children with my husband and just be able to go do things that I watch my friends do while I am on the sidelines. I finally truly feel like I have hit rock bottom with all this weight and I also feel like I got the wake up call that I needed to get me focused on what is most important. I need to focus on me now and getting better and feeling better. No looking back now I need to do this now or never. It will only get better from here.
