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 to give my body a break. Unfortunately I let the stress/emotional eating get to me and I gained about 50 back. My own fault. I went back onto Shape for a month (March 2015) and did not see the success I'd hoped this time due to emotional eating. Short story...things have gotten so intense with my son of late. June 2015 I am going to add doTerra Slim & Sassy oil for appetite control, their shakes and nutrients. I would love to be a success story for these products since I believe in them! Won't know unless I try!

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.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. I am now signed on for 1x/week with the trainer for 3 months (March 2015). When this round ends I am switching to monthly massages and doing the gym on my own. Making me a priority in this!

I have barely even been on spark to know that you went to Sonic. Sonic is my 'go to' place when I am feeling homesick for my mom and New Mexico. Its right down the street from both my office and church from opposite directions. There is no way to eat healthy there. Mom took us on special occasions when I was growing up. Of course back then it was only located in NM. No worries...I'm very god at my own sabotaging. Ha!

I agree - you have to be okay with it knowing that you have done your absolute best to work towards the goal you set. I'm having to remind myself of the same thing with my goals. Its one thing to set goals and not work towards them but when we are putting our best foot forward to meet our goals then getting close to them is just as good as meet them. I realize it doesn't feel the same but its a balance we have to find within ourselves.
