Thank You AttackFatCat for your recent Blog about perspective. You are so right! The right perspective is key!! Congrats on your success!!

I am proud that of the 75 pounds I lost after my son was born, I have managed to maintain an overall 55 pound loss of that - & he's about to turn 10! And I have a 5 year old daughter - so I was able to go through another pregnancy & lose most of that.

This week the Evil Scale Troll showed a gain - like he did last week. BUT, I am still down 6 pounds for the month of January & 1 inch smaller around my waist.

And last night on the treadmill I managed to run a 5K in my fastest time to date - 36:15!!!

So, sure the Evil Scale Troll is being a a**hole.... BUT.... I have other successes to be proud of. And I am still here on Spark!! I have not completely given up!!! I may have a meal, day, week off the wagon - we all do... but I will get back on that wagon. This is a healthy lifestyle for me... not just a diet. I am starting to see results from my workouts... my back feels smoother - ie less rolls lol.... I can see collarbones and cheekbones. I can see me - and I am starting to like it!
