My journey so far has been sort of like a rollercoaster.
I have joined Weighless, so many time......and yes I did loose weight......but as usual, life gets in the way.
This is the third time I have joined Sparkpeople, and I must admit it is the best thing that I have done in a long time.
I was active until Grade10, and that's when I started picking up weight. I remember weighing over 75kg in Matric.....and now I wish that is what I weighted.....but for a them 17 year old, that was A LOT.
My weight slowly picked up through the years, and then I met, who I though was the man of my dreams. He accepted me for who I was, but I refused to see all the tell tale signs. We got engaged, and I then joined the gym, wanting to loose my excess weight and look good for my wedding.
That never happened, and even though I continued to go to gym, food and drink was my source of comfort.
Forward to 2012. I now put myself fully in Sparkpeople.....and even though I haven't lost what I want to loose, I know I am with a group of people, who know exactly what it feels like to be overweight.
What an amazing support group. This is now my forth round of BLC, and I am learning news thing everyday.
Thank you Spark, for putting the Spark back into me wanting to loose weight.
