I'm taking the advice from another spark member and I'm not going to say I'm starting over but I'm continuing on my journey! There has been lots of speed bumps along the way and boy, have I made some wrong turns along the way!!! But that being said, I have picked myself up, dusted myself off and am ready to go again!!! I'm going simpler and smaller then before. I used to try and do so many things at once that in the end, nothing got done. I'd overwhelm myself or forgot all I said I'd do and it got me nowhere. So small and simple this time. Easy peasy!!

Wow, i joined spark over 4 years ago and am still struggling with my weight. I'm not blaming spark. It's my fault; I have the tendency to stop and start constantly. I'm a great procrastinator! Probably one of the best!!!! I really don't have too many excuses that I can say are valid. I need to do this and I haven't given up yet!!! So one day at a time and I'll get there yet!!!

I'm recommitted and rearing to go!!! Let's do this together and become the women we were meant to be!

Hey, I'm Back!!!! I have come and gone on here so many times that even I am tired of it!!! But this time feels different. I'm trying to be honest and patient with myself and more spiritual and strong. It was almost 2 years ago when I joined this the 1st time. the entry below this is that entry and I am still looking for me.

I'm 43 years old today (2/20) and it's time to start fresh. I'm a the stage in life where my children are gone or getting there fast, and I need to find the woman I used to be. I want to feel good about me. I want to find the woman who loved wearing heels on occasion. The woman who felt sexy and beautiful. I know she's still here somewhere under all the extra weight and flab. I realize the time is now to rescue her and feel good about myself again!

The above entry was almost 15 months ago and I'm still struggling with my weight loss. In fact, I weigh more now then I did then. I have let things bother me and get me stressed out and then I eat and watch (zone out) tv. I need to stop this and get myself back on track. I need to do this for myself: especially now that I have some health issues that can be improved by losing some of this weight. So, Here I go again!
