2014 is really kicking my butt, folks. From injuring my knee to traveling constantly for work from managing my relationships, I really feel overwhelmed and swamped and, to be a honest, a failure. I feel like a failure because I've gained about 20 pounds since Nov/Dec.
That is kinda why I've not been so active on SparkPeople (the other reason being my crazy life right now). I have been voted a motivator, I've had loads of people like my blog posts, and I've had tons of friend requests and emails, asking my secrets. To come on here and say, "I've messed up and gained weight" feels like I've been lying to everyone all this time.
And then I headed to my At Goal and Maintaining team and found these articles:
Wow, what a comfort to my soul!! I am not a failure! I *have* kept off about 90 pounds, which is still good! And maintenance isn't a simple "I win the weight loss game!" statement. It's long and arduous - but very worth it.
Baring my soul today has been really tough, but I needed to be honest with you guys. Thank you for giving that to me, for always being a support when I need it. And while I am trying not to let you down, I'm also trying not to let myself down too! :)
