Did I do this to myself again? Yup!

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Well to make a long story short...I joined SP over two years ago at 300 lbs. I was desperate and devoted all my time to getting healthy. The result of my hard work and dedication was a 70 lb. weight loss by Dec. 25th, 2011.

Something happened at that point. I lost my drive and couldn't seem to get it back. I felt good and got tired of watching every bite and cut back a little on exercise. Well, the weight started to creep back on and I didn't want to face it.

I worked a sloppy program and was not seeing the results I wanted to so I gave up. I kept exercising a couple days a week but, I went back to my old eating habits and before long, I had gained back over 40 lbs. of the 70 lbs. I had lost.

5 months ago I injured my heel doing Zumba and have Plantarfaciitis which has yet to heal. So exercise has stopped.

Well, I can no longer sit here feeling sorry for myself. I am feeling like a failure again and embarrassed to be on Sparkpeople as a "motivator" when I have set such a bad example for everyone. I want to succeed and help others to do the same.

I am back and will try again to get healthy both physically and mentally. I miss my Sparkfriends and hope they are healthy and happy.

Glad to be back and looking forward to feeling successful again. Let's get to work!
