Trying to get back into Spark at my heaviest weight ever.

Monday, December 16, 2013

I am having all sorts of emotions right now. I am feeling embarrassed and ashamed because I am returning at my heaviest weight ever. I have been having a bit of a healthy crisis now that left me at 184. I need to get back onto spark and I feel like the first step is admitting that I gained back all the weight I lost plus about 10 points, get into the swing again and try to get started. I am worried about not having enough time because I wasn't working when I did spark before and now I am. One big factor in my drifting away was the time involved. I am not very excited about tracking food, but I know I need to do it.

I did order a Fitbit Force. I am excited about that. I am hoping that it will help get me moving again and help me get my sleep cycles stablized again which has been a major factor in my recent health crisis.

    I was in the same boat a couple of months ago. I don't work but I can imagine how much harder it makes staying fit. I took my come back in steps. First I tracked my exercise. When I was ready I added tracking food. My major fear was getting on the scale and facing my current weight. Heavy sigh! Once I did, I had something that would show me if my effort was paying off. From where I sit you've taken care of some of the hardest've come back to Spark and weighed yourself. You can do this.

    It is not the amount of times we fall that counts it is the times we get up, dust ourselves off and keep moving down this journey we are on. There is not one person here who can say they started this journey and finished it without any falls. Just keep moving and you will get there. We believe in you. emoticon

    You are brave for coming back! If you can do that you can lose the weight did it before. Work and weightloss can find harmony. Best of luck!

    You can do this! Believe that! You are about 4 lbs lighter than I was when I first joined Spark in February 2008. I weigh 140 now & have for 4 years!

    Welcome back! This is the first time in my life tracking food, but I like it. I have learned so much. I work a full-time job, too. You can do it. You know what has helped me is to plan my food in advance (using the planner) and then I can add it to the tracker later. Hope that helps!
