It's about time

Saturday, November 09, 2013

I have been a member of SparkPeople now for 2 years and I guess it's about time I finally wrote my first blog (ever, not just onSparkPeople). I have some struggles with my weight most of my adult life, but worse after having kids and much worse after menopause (@42) plus some health issues that kept me sedentary for years.
I have lose a total of 60. Most of that weight loss was I the first year or so. I have been on a major plateau for the last 6-8 months gaining and losing the same 4 pounds over and over. I have been working more hours with less chance to work out. My daughter got married this past June so I then lost the motivation to not be the "fat" mother of the bride.
A friend of mine posted some pictures on his Facebook page of a gathering at his church from several years ago that I was tagged in. My first thoughts was who is that huge woman I the purple and it suddenly realized that it was me. I guess I ever realized how different I look now. I sent the picture to my daughter and told her I didn't remember ever looking like that. She of course came back and said things like " I think it's a bad camera angle" etc. I said no I was just in denial and didn't ever look at my self I the mirror.
She then sent me a picture of then and now together and said " you've come a long way mom" *tear*.
I think I just found the motivation I need to keep going ! I will keep you updated.

    Love your blog, and your pics are soooo encouraging. We have a lot of the same likes (cooking, crafts, seasonal decorating and Halloween)! I'm trying to get more involved in the Spark community and I'm looking for spark friends with mutual interests for mutual support and motivation. If you're looking the same, feel free to friend me!
