Here we go again.....

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

It's been a long time..... My lowest weight I had achieved was 260... but having gone through a year long separation, 3 months in a domestic crisis shelter with my 3 daughters, and a recent divorce..... It can seriously throw u off track. My current weight now is 286. I am restarting with SPARKPEOPLE, keeping track of my food, and fitness, and keeping a journal. I desperately need the accountability.... and I seriously don't want to sabotage all that I have achieved in my weight loss so far. However.... I have done some serious backsliding and need to regain those healthy habits. A little history to explain.... With my weight having reached 400 lbs..... I had no self esteem. My marriage of nearly 17 years, was to a man who was emotionally abusive. During the year before my year long separation, when I was having all my weight loss success, and improved confidence and self esteem.... My ex became increasingly more insecure and abusive, and constantly tried to sabotage my efforts. The breaking point was Aug. 1st, 2011. So here I am..... a fresh new start. Today is my first tracking day since rejoining, and my first blog entry. WISH ME LUCK, and if you are a praying person..... those are much appreciated too. emoticon
