The Scale is Definitely going the wrong way

Friday, September 05, 2014

So it's been a really long time since I've on here consistently, over a year actually and a lot of things have happened, none of them good. My weight which was already out of control is now even higher. I've been praying a lot and looking at a lot of different ways to get healthy and I definitely feel God is leading me to come back here, because at one time it was really good for me.

My summer has been filled with a lot of tragedy, at the end of June my wonderful oldest sister died. She had gastric bypass surgery in February. She's tried so hard to lose weight for so many years and her doctor convinced her that this would really work for her but it didn't. From the minute she came out of surgery, she began to go downhill. She went into the hospital for the last time at the beginning of June because her throat was closing up and she passed away June 24th, two days before her 46th birthday.

Being the emotional eater that I am, I've been eating and eating and eating and now I am up to 246.3 pounds and my back hurts so much I can't even sleep at night. I was wondering why it hurt so bad until I got on the scale and I'd gained even more weight, I guess it simply couldn't handle it.

Well despite the pain I'm ready to begin again. I just connected the app with my phone and I am excited about. With God's help I am beginning again.

    You are here, Devona8. And you're certainly not alone! Just take things hour by hour, day by day, and know that you are in the company of so many of us who are walking the same walk. I'm truly sorry about your sister; what a devastating loss. You will be in my prayers, and know that your fellow (and sister) Sparkers are pulling for you!
