1- it's ok to begin again

Monday, September 01, 2014

I'm beginning again. But at least I can say in the last 2 years I haven't been far from Spark. This site has so many great tools. With my birthday tomorrow - 52nd - it's a day that has worn on me for some time. My father died at 51 and my mom passed at 52. I have been depressed at my lack of focus and gaining my 32 lbs back. But I have to be honest and admit that I was also depressed at the huge amount of sagging skin I'm going to have when I get to my goal. It was getting very apparent with the 32 lb loss, so I am going to try to incorporate more strength training to try to help with some of that. I remember the weigh in when I hit my 32 lbs down like it was yesterday. Looking forward to feel that again. Thank you all so much for your support! Peace.

    We have commented on this in the past, how we seem to hit the same cycles...I just recently came back on here after gaining everything back (and more). Coming back was partially due to a mini health scare that made me think of my mortality. Now when I'm tempted to do something really naughty foodwise, I try to think "I'd rather live".

    I too remember how awesome it felt hitting goals, and how great I felt, and I want it back. Let's do this again, together, 1 day, 1 decision at a time. emoticon emoticon

    Happy birthday! And it IS so good to see you back here! I hope that this finds you a less depressed as you reflect on the amazingly beautiful family that you have, and the positive influence you can have on them as you use the tools here to find your strength. You are an incredible person! As for the sagging skin, you eventually get over the self-conscious'ness of it. And strength-training definitely helps.
