Starting Over is TOUGH!!!
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Well, a little over three years ago I started Spark People. I remember reading blogs of people who had started, lost weight, put it back on, and then came back to Spark people to do it all over again. I remember thinking, that is NOT going to be me! Funny how life can be so odd and change so much from day to day, month to month, and year to year. I had a lot of things get in the way of my weight loss goals: death in the family, injuries, house fire, etc... then last summer, I had poison ivy for over 5 months. It kept me from exercising because it was SO bad, and exercising made it spread worse. Peri-menapause is also doing a number on me and every day has felt like a struggle to stay focused!! This summer I started slowly... very slowly... and have been picking up the pace. After much thought, I decided to go back to Spark People. I have met some of the greatest friends here and the tools on Spark People are SOO helpful! Thanks to many who have continued to send me notes and encouragement through the past year! I have missed you all!!
