Obviously going it alone wasnt working.

Monday, August 12, 2013

I took about 3-4 weeks off from Sparking and being accountable. Frankly my excuses are...

My back has been killing me, TOM hit me hard this month. I am getting older, my body is changing. Not just aches and pains but in other ways too. My personal life, not the greatest right now. Lots of worries and stress. My daughters boyfriend, the baby daddy decided he did not want to babysit when my daughter got a job, so I stepped in until we find someone and get things straightened around. We had a go around with him, they broke up, now they are lovey dovey again but frankly he can kiss my fat butt. My daughter stepped up, I have stepped up, he didn't.

Today's weigh in reflects lots of things. Yes, I've had pop and cake and salty things. Last night was a birthday party. I have not drank 8 servings of water a day in weeks. I have not been on my bike in weeks.

So, part of that weight is water, and the first 5-7 pounds that come off will be water. I know this from experience, lots and lots of experience.

I am back to the 324 mark. That blasted 324. Seems like it is a magnet for me.

    I totally know how you feel. I left Sparkpeople for a while and decided to 'go it alone' and after months decided that it was the wrong decision. The good news is you're back and starting one step at a time.
