I'm back-and I'll show my daughter-in-law!

I just posted this to a friend on the "Eating Because You're Bored" Team. She had been away from Spark for awhile and was feeling bad. I thought I'd like to share this with anyone else who might have been slipping a little.
I kind of drifted away because I got a little overconfident. I visited my family in Florida last June and had WAY too much fun, gained a little vacation weight, then came home and kept up my "vacation." All my bad habits came back, and I gained a little more vacation weight - only I wasn't on vacation anymore! I came back to Spark a couple weeks ago and I've managed to re-lose almost 4 of the 10 pounds I've gained since June. But today, I went to visit my son and DIL, and she began making fun of me for gaining weight. She said it's because I no longer live with her and don't have anyone to "nag" me out of bad habits. GRRRR!!!! I was so angry and depressed - I had a snack, but it was the one I had planned for this time of day. (3 p.m. which is always a dangerous time for me--if I'm going to overeat, this is when I do it.) Then I sat down and went to Spark and found the motivation I need to get back on track and stay there. I know I can do it, and I will!
