I got tired of tracking, planning, thinking about food, what I COULD have, what I SHOULD have, all of it. So I checked in occasionally, walked a bit sometimes, ate what I wanted when I wanted it. And you know what? Most of the habits I formed here in the last 3 years stuck with me but some didn't. I gained weight (shocker!) And I missed my friends here. I had a good sparky reach out and last week, every day, we focused on what good things we did for ourselves. We wrote to each other every day, and didn't complain about where we messed up or anything like that. Just what we did right. It was enough to bring me back from the dark side..lol. I am grateful for the lifeline and the anchor which is spark people. This is why this site works. Its the people, the support, the encouragement, the fact that there is always someone here right where you are, or has been there.
So while I never really left and I never really gave up, I am back and tracking and hopeful and working it. Hubby and I have a walking schedule and a commitment to do some kickboxing video game twice a week and I'm meal planning again.. I have a plan, and I'm going to use it.
This is why it works.
