Why I joined!!!

Saturday, November 26, 2011

Over the years i have tried almost every diet, succeeded at some and failed at most. I have to take the blame for that. I tried spark people at first because i have to admit, it was free and everything cost so much, WW, BL, JM. But my head hasn't been in it. Last year i found a challenge in which there has been so much support. yes i have had my ups and downs, but maybe if i support others then i can support myself as well. This is my third challenge with the team, Slim Possibles, There are a few of us left since the first one i participated on, a lot of new people, but we all are in this together. I need this!!! That is why i am not giving up, i need to let emotional stress get to me so much, I am the type of person that automatically turns to food for comfort for any little thing that may upset me or depress me. I realized now that after the last challenge, i only lost 3 pounds in 6 weeks. that has to stop!!! i am not getting any younger and it does get harder as you get older. I can vouch for that. So i am in this to be a winner!! i want to get my life back, that is now the reason i am here.

    You've kept me going.

    We can do this. We can make it work. Its not going to be easy. And its going to be an up hill battle. But lucky for us you burn more calories (at least it feels like) going up hill.

    Michelle, We're 3 seasons deep. We can do it. Together.

    That's great! I am sure you can do it. No matter what, don't forget to take care of yourself. You're more important than anything or anyone else. emoticon emoticon emoticon
