Hello all, I joined spark around 3 years ago and lost alot of weight, with the help of an aggressive exercise program. I got fit and felt fantastic, better then I had in my whole entire life. lost over 4 and a half stone. Then the dreaded thing happened, I have put 2 stone back on and am now back to being very unfit. terrible eating habits and no extra workout ruitine, this happened back in september 2012. I don't know how to get motivated again.............
Two days ago I logged back in and thought I would start back at the beginning of my journey 'SP' then less then 1 hour ago I had an episode, my vision went completely blurred and I felt very dizzy, I had a bagel and after minutes felt better, I now have a headache. My mother is diabetic and so so was my nan. I have had this happen to me for some time now and only now I realize what it means??? I am by no means stupid, when I started this journey it was due to the health problems I may face in the future if I didn't change.
I am back to my old self, overeating, oversmoking, under exercising and worst of all I have picked up a new habit 'over drinking'............why would I do this to myself when my father is an alcoholic and has nearly died 6 times due his problem and what it does to his body???
I need to stop all of this, but most importantly I need to address my emotional issues so that I can handle life's problems when they are thrown at me instead of seeking comfort in these health destroying vices!
How do I kick start myself again! HELP!!!
