New Year - New Start - Again

Tuesday, January 05, 2016

Well, here I am for about the 10th year I think. I go up, I go down, I go back up. The past few years, I have tried harder and lost more, inches and pounds but not enough and then came the set backs again. I got sick, a major lower respiratory infection with bronchitus and an unexplainable cough that lasted for over a month. All this during the holiday season. I was behind on my holiday chores and sick and I quit, quit Sparks, quit Fitbit, quit everything. After Christmas comes depression and eating and now I am probably back to where I was two years ago. But I'm not giving up. Today I am back on Sparks, today I did a workout video and today I will start all over again. Not going near the scales for at least a week because I am afraid it will sabatoge my start. Nothing like watching that thing go up and up while I am going through my winter depression. Enough to make a girl want to curl up with some carbs and wine. LOL - I'll be back in a week to post my weight and then in two weeks to log what I hope is a positive start to a good year. Happy 2016.

    For a minute there I thought I was reading something I wrote! I relate. I hated seeing the number the other day but am hopeful when I see I'm not the only one. Thank you for posting this!
