Well my last RESTART was a total blow out. I swear every time I try to start a diet something in my life goes haywire. I restarted on February 5th, on February 6th I had to admit my mom to the hospital via the ER and she was in there for 2 weeks. I drove my dad to see her and spent countless hours at the hospital the entire time. She is home now, but it's not been easy. My folks are 84 and daddy had a couple strokes a dozen years ago. She's rehabilitating and coming along, but needs attention and I'm cooking their meals and helping daddy clean the house. Things are finally slowing down a bit, but I'm completely miserable in my skin and NEED to get cracking on a diet. Summer is coming and it's harder for me to lose in the summer because of so many eating events spread throughout. Surprisingly I've lost 1 pound since my last Spark weigh-in on Feb. 5th. ... I'm almost happy with that because I am definitely a stress eater and I've definitely been stressed. I think I've hit my all-time low in the self-esteem department so hopefully that will be my incentive.
