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!

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 think Anre has a small frame for a male. He is stocky right now at 50 lbs and could stand to lose a few but when we first adopted him he was way under weight at 35 lbs. He'd be a balloon if we let him free feed...he loves his chow. Bassets are sure hard to lift though - stocky little things.

Thanks so much for all your support! The boys took it surprisingly well but I think they are still kind of in shock and processing - questions keep coming out slowly - they are such good kids. Thanks for asking about them :)

There is a lot of police activity that never makes it on social media or the news. Maybe a neighbor knows something. Otherwise, I would suppose just being happy its over is good news.

Thank you for the SparkGoodie and the admonition to set a small goal for today. You are SO GOOD to encourage and I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

I have met MOST of my goals today (held my breath when I was tracking my food/calories) and am on my way to the treadmill now.

Hope you have had a great day, too!
