Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump ...

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump start I gave my health at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly.

I have to constantly work at reminding myself that I am worth it as self-esteem was trashed during childhood. I know I am, but the bad stuff is easier to believe sometimes.

I did start the Slim & Sassy drops on Wednesday. You know how I wondered how I could make the 16 oz. last all day? The mint is strong enough that I definitely can't guzzle it! I have noticed a little difference, but I'm sure that as I use it longer I'll notice more. Especially as things settle down and we get back to a normal eating schedule.

I love the "hammer effect"! That is usually what I need, too! I stayed out of PTA president till last daughter senior year cause I am not crazy about the politics stuff--I could be in charge, can do the public speaking but have no stomach for the politics. So--not sure what I'll do--still looking at options.

I think we're going to do both - one as honeymoon, one as an anniversary, lol. I think I've found something perfect. Salsa lessons in Hanava for a week. So it's looking like I'm leaning towards Cuba today. But who knows. That can change so quickly. lol
