May 7th, Getting Back on Spark

Monday, May 07, 2012


I haven't been on spark in quite some time. As a result I have gained quite a bit of weight. I am at my heaviest now and really need to get on track. It is unhealthy for me to be at this weight. Currently 416 lbs. This is a huge number and so I have set my goal at 300 lbs, I don't even want to think about how much I have to lose in total! So when I get to 300, or close to it, I will reevaluate my goal.

I joined a gym again, though I've never really gone reliably before, and plan to work on going on a regular basis. I plan to come on spark almost every day. When I do come on regularly, even if I don't lose weight, I usually don't gain.

I need all the support I can get so plan to go on my sparkteams pages and at least read a couple threads every day. I will try to post at least once response each day on my teams forums as well.

I do generally track sporadically and will be trying to track on a more regular basis, both food and exercise.

The past year has been really hard on me, and it shows on the scale. I have had several deaths in the family and may be expecting another soon, hopefully it doesn't turn out that way. I've moved jobs and have been dealing with depression. The job move was good though, better pay means less stressing about bills lol, also my hours are now always the same. Yay no more shift work ^_^ that's good for sleeping lol.

I do also plan to explore my spirituality a little, I think an improvement in that area would help the depression.

Sorry if this is completely boring. This blog is more about putting on record my goals and plans so that I feel at least somewhat accountable. I am hoping this summer will work out really well for me ^_^ and for everyone else too :P

    I'm so glad to see that you're back on spark too! I had a big hiatus as well and just started back a few weeks ago. Good luck with all of your tracking and I hope you kick some serious butt at that gym! Like JAMIELOGICAL said, we really do need a good support structure in order to succeed in lifestyle changes! I also think your want to explore your own spirituality is really key to it as well. So go for it!

    Hope you have a wonderful first week back! emoticon

    I am soooooooooo glad you are back! I can't even tell you how wonderful it is! We can do this! Both of us have gone off track and put on weight, but we're here now and we can help each other. Please, if you ever need any support or motivation or you just want to vent, do NOT hesitate to post on my page or my blog or send me a SparkMail. As I posted on my blog today, it's a long road and we need all the support we can get if we want to make it to the end!
