I lost 60 pounds with spark people in 2010 an maintained the loss for over a year and then life happened and I slowly gave up the healthy habits I worked so long and hard to create. Long story short, I regained almost all of the weight.
It is a long boring story…..I could complain about all of the challenges that I have in my life but it's such a bunch of bull. When I stopped tracking and exercising I started gaining back the weight. I wish I could get to a place where I don't have to track my calories and don't have to think about my food constantly, but the sad truth is I will need to do this for the rest of my life to achieve my health goals.
All I know is the more weight I gained the more disconnected I felt from my true self. I want to find myself again. I want to be healthy and I want to be happy. In other words I need a SPARK! I did it before...I can do it again!
I finally found my way back to spark but I felt too ashamed to restart with my old page. After all, I was a spark motivator! After thinking about it I have decided that is silly. I need to own my struggles as well as my success! However, I still think I need to stick with my new spark page and user name. I will leave this page up to remind myself of my past success and motivate myself when I need it.
If you were a spark friend to me in the past I am asking you to add me as a friend and support me on my new journey. My user name is now WILLIS9301.
With your support I can do this! Onward and upward!
