Thanks Nancy Jean

I found yesterday afternoon that a close friend died while I was gone over the weekend. I am just sad today. I have lost 3 long time friends in the last 6 weeks, and it has just knocked me out for today.

I will recover, but I am just so sad right now.

God Bless all of you my friends.

Hi Alice,

Welcome to going back on track. That's one of the great things about SP. You can always have a "do over"

How exciting for your family, especially your great niece. Love that she had this great experience.

I had a nice time, am resting up now as I had things to do today and we returned home at about 1:00am this morning.

Talk to you later!

Bonnie,

My sister just got back from Nashville! She and her DH went there to see their granddaughter play on the stage at the Grand Ole Opry! She and all the Honor Students in the Best of the Best in the United States, whom played in the orchestra, were on the MAIN/ORIGINAL stage at the Grand Ole Opry! Of course, as the Grand Aunt, I'll be getting a DVD of her performance. I'm so proud of her and I know the rest of the family is too!

HAVE FUN, while you're in Nashville and I'll see you when you return!

Blessings!

Just stopping in to tell you all that I will be leaving for Nashville tonight, so probably won't be back on until Tues, maybe Monday

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

You are absolutely right. We just have to keep on "keepin' on". It is a good journey for the most part!

Bonnie,

We're here! All of us are here, for EVERYBODY!

Bonnie, you're not starting at the beginning again! When you started your marvelous journey with the weight loss study, you changed so many things around and it WORKED for you, because you WORKED the PLAN! Girl, you ended up on a detour, and that's all. Everybody ends up on a detour, at some time or another. I have another detour coming up starting Friday, and it's a medical detour! How long it will last, I have no idea, what so ever! See that's what happened to you. You ended up on a medical detour. Other people end up on detours because of finances, taking care of another person, or even just wanting a break. However, the BEST thing about a detour, is that it ALWAYS brings you back to the main road, which is where you're at now, so you just continue on with your journey! SO here we are, one BIG HAPPY FAMILY and we're riding the road. We all live in different areas, so it may be a different road, or you may choose to look at the aspect that we're all here for the same reason, so we're all on the same road, just different locations. We all come to the end of the road, so to speak when we reach our goal, but then again MAINTENANCE is harder than losing! I know, because I've been there, before! I'll just sit back and let God have His way, as I encourage all of you, on my journey!

Blessings!

DARLENE and NANCY

thanks so much for your input and support. The only way I can do this is here.

I do need this community.

I did a weight loss study at a local university in Nov of 2007 and that is what began this journey for me. It was very much like Spark People, and I came here in May of 2008. I lost 70 pounds and kept it off for a couple of years.

My back went out in 2010 2011 winter, I had 5 herniated discs, and I could no longer cope with such pain 24/7. A back surgery and 2 knee replacements have made me better.

However, during all of the pain and surgeries, I lost my way on my journey.

Yesterday, I got out the book from the weight loss study, I am beginning again at the BEGINNING!

I have to reform all of the good healthy talk to myself, be kind to myself, get over feeling like such a failure, and relearn to really do this one day at a time.

The other thing I have to do is learn to live with my limitations. I clean house, bake and cook, and then I hurt. Must learn to be more proactive and do a little bit at a time. Just like with the rest of my journey.

Glad to be here with you. I appreciate your help

I was binge eating just last night, on Halloween candy! I'm not proud of it, but I wanted to let you know that you're not alone! This is something that we're all dealing with and if something helps for one person they pass it on in hopes that it will help another! So, just let your hair down and join the family, as that's exactly what we are!

Blessings!

BTW,

I too am a terrible binge eater. Right now, I am working on getting away from doing it, but I am having less of it as I tell myself good things about me, and not wallowing in all of the bad stuff I say to me.

We can do this together

CONGRATULATIONS ALICE.

You are right where you need to be, back with those of us who go through the same things, and are fighting the same battles.

Take it one day at a time, and do the best that you can do on that day. You have not been "BAD" you have taken a side trip.

Good to have you here.

I've been bad for a few weeks now, and am ready to start over. I had lost 28 lbs, and now have gained back 10. I'm one of those binge eaters. I can't just take one bite, I have to eat it all. I think I need to be really strict on my diet to start with, and then maybe learn how to be more moderate. I'm just now recovering from a badly sprained ankle, so am limited in physical exercise, but want to resume as soon as I can. Walking and stair climbing are my most successful forms of exercise.
