Fat and Frumpy - Again!
Sunday, May 19, 2019
I am back at Sparks because, well.....I need to be back at Sparks. I started Sparks 5 years ago, reached goal weight 4 years ago and for the most part kept it off. I had some set backs (don't we all), but I kept my weight within 7-8 pounds of where I wanted to be. That is not the case anymore. Over the last 6-8 months I have been gaining, ignoring and making excuses. I actually don't know what I weigh. I haven't been on a scale since last summer, but I know I am the heaviest I have been since reaching goal weight in July 2015. I am tired of feeling fat and frumpy. I haven't gained it all back (I don't think so?), but I have reached the point where I either need to lose weight or buy new clothes. My choice is to lose weight. Today I discovered that my biggest and most comfy pair of shorts from last summer are tight. It was a wake up call. I am a teacher and my school year is coming to a close very soon. I am dedicating my summer to getting back to goal weight. I remember all the compliments I got from people as I lost weight and how great I felt in my clothes and how great I felt in general. I want to feel that again. I want to start next school year looking and feeling my best.
