Orange is the new Book!!

Friday, August 10, 2018

It seems every year since I hit 40 my weight has went up 10 pounds a year plus I gained 10 pounds when I lost my husband I gained 10 pounds when I lost my son. I recently had a little gathering of my best friends there are four of us and I was always the smallest .
looking at the photos after they left it hit me how much I gained. I wasn't the smallest anymore not even close. So they left here on July 13 (Friday the 13th) and I got on the scale, and I started to make lists, researched, made plans, googled, and there on the shelf above the top of my refrigerator with my recipe books , this bright orange cover of the spark book looked down at me . so I began reading my old friend. I remember buying 4 extra books and handed them out to my cousins, (was not a smart thing to do ).. that's another story in itself.
I was overwhelmed with the support and the feedback I received from spark pages , spark people and the spark book I wanted to spread the joy ..
anyway here I am ,I came back 20 pounds heavier than when I left but I came back ,needless to say I took the book off the shelf and it sits beside me within my reach my old friend ..

    It sometimes just takes a person time to get back on track. Weight creeps up on you. It happened to me after I lost my husband. I also recently got back on track! Keep focused and be kind to yourself!
