With bathing suit season approaching, it's time to get to work!

I'm determined to lose weight this summer.


Background on me:

During my first pregnancy I became gestational diabetic and although it disappeared after the delivery, I became prediabetic a year later. That scared me and so I focussed and lost 50-60 lbs before my next pregnancy.

I didn't go diabetic during my second pregnancy (and my sugar numbers are still fine) but unfortunately, food aversions did me in and I ended up gaining back a good portion of the weight.

I managed to lose a solid 50lbs of weight in 2008 but gained back most of it due to chronic sinus infections and a car accident. (I couldn't exercise because of bad whiplash and I stress ate.)

Turning 40 hasn't been fun for me. I've had a multitude of injuries and ailments... pulled ligaments in my left hip, pulled IT Band on my right hip, plantar faciitus on my right foot, heel injury on my left and weird intestinal/stomach pain. Hoping some weight loss and a new year will result in positive physical changes!

    I would love that! I have been thinking that I need a buddy to get through this, but no one came to mind. Thank you so much.
    I am going to message you my personal contact info too.

    btw, the 9 days is the period of mourning for the loss of the Holy Temple, leading up to the Fast of the 9th of Av (Hebrew month). On that day in history both the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed. Traumatic events tend to take place during this time, bad energies....

    You are SO right! It is both. Takes me almost 2 weeks to detox, unfortunately I don't usually make it that long before, falling off the wagon. I know I did this 2 years ago, but I can't seem to duplicate the same mind set to do it again.

    Spark can take up a lot of time and when you're busy with other things, it's totally understandable to let it go by the wayside.
    I've been busy at work...going to take a week off in August and go to Orlando :-)
    Bacon and chocolate go really well together...sweet and salty. That's what she requested for her birthday cake. Who am I to deny?
    I was pleased with my 5K. I've got a 10K this Sunday...we'll see how that goes. I'll definitely PR as I've never done one before. ;-)
