Today I had the house to myself, a true rarity since I am married with 3 sons. I decided to use the quiet to do some reflecting. I joined sparkpeople way back in 2007 but really invested in it in 2009. I lost over 70 lbs. that year. Since then I have gained it back and for a long while completely lost my "spark". I read all my old blogs this morning and remembered the highs and the lows along my journey. It is a journey, a lifelong journey. It is not a diet it is my life. I have let stress, and laziness tear down my health. I am really, finally, at the point where I am ready to take back my health and my life again. I took a 2.5 yr detour but I am still striving for that destination, to be a healthy me.
Along this journey I had 1 friend who has never given up on me. Michelene Cleary, we met on Spark , and when i was struggling you reached out to me and offered to be my "text" support system. We have been texting ever since and you have consistently been an inspiration and a friend to me. You Rock!!!!!
Here is to remembering the past, but moving forward on my journey.
