So after months of being terrified to get on the scale, knowing that it would be near 200 (which would be higher than I've ever weighed), I decided to get on this morning. I mustered all my courage and, with no one else in the house, stepped on with eye squeezed shut. I cracked one eye and it wasn't as high as 200. I'm at 168.2. That's just a few pounds away from when I first started this journey 5 or 6 years ago. Back then, I lost 50 pounds and got down to 129 pounds (too skinny, really)

So now I have to face the harsh reality that I've gained almost all of it back.

I attribute some of it to the hormones I got on a year ago for menopause. I gained 20 pounds in 4 months. I'm off those now, deciding that I'm too afraid to take them. But the weigh remains, so there you have it. I attribute the rest to pure laziness on my part and not sticking the the formula that I know works here at Spark.

I'm starting over. Literally, from the beginning. Again.

It's ok. Rather than beat myself up over it, I'm ready. I've put some things in place to help me succeed: Nutribullet (juicing for breakfast every day), really watching that I eat wholesome foods, off the coffee (caffeine), off much of the sugar and I really must get back to tracking...which I'm terrible at.

Here I go....again.

Hugs ya'll,
L.
