It's Been Almost a Year! - NO, it's now been two years!

Update: I have now been participating in SP for two years. Looking back at last year (see 2nd paragraph), I am sorry to say I have fallen down on the job. However, I have also returned because I know my SP friends will encourage me instead of beat me up! I have joined SparkCoach because I know I need that accountability. I have gained most of my weight loss back, but not all of it, for that I am grateful. One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many ...

I have gained most of my weight loss back, but not all of it, for that I am grateful. One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many friends I will take the weight off!
It was a real shock to realize I have been participating in SparkPeople for almost a year. As I reviewed what I've been doing, I recognized that I do need a renewal in my commitment. I have set new goals, listed my plan to acheive the goals, and committed to myself and my Lord that I will stay accountable to doing what I have listed. While I had hoped to lose 52 lbs and did not succeed, I have decided I am still successful because I lost 27 lbs, did not gain weight, and did start taking baby steps on exercise and walking which I had never done. So I may not be one of the ones who move rapidly through this, but I am still happy with me because I am keeping on instead of giving up:)

Thank you so much for the goodie! It has not been easy suffering from all these crazy health issues this year! I was getting depressed, really. But when I read notes like the one you sent with the goodie, it encourages me to keep trying. Being healthy is what we all want~so I am not ready to give up! We can do this! Thanks for the encouragement, it really helps! emoticon

HI BETZYGIRL - What a VERY nice surprise to see the lovely flowers you sent! That SparkGoodie then prompted me to visit your page which was also a nice treat. I see that I have had some similar paths on my journey. Thanks again for the wishes for a great weekend!
