Caren's Corner

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 170. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other ...
I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 170. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other people, too. I feel for them, and want them to know that with the right kind of tools (mostly mental) you can lose the weight for the last time.

I'm 53, divorced and have 3 boys: 27, 22 & 15.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've been in the same boat with the C25K program. This will be my fourth or fifth time trying to restart it. I typically stop because of injury (shin splints) or just a busy schedule. Crossing my fingers that it works out better this time around.

Yes, the movie WAS good. There are a couple of selections out there in computer land. I'm watching all of them.

Your blog today gave me so much insight into my own rep cent struggles. I can't thank you enough for your honesty about the temporary nature of away from motivators. I am busily working on new goals to move toward.
