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 60 back. My own fault. I just can't allow carbs and sugars without much planning.

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 on my own and using the extra % for monthly massages. I missed those!

As of July 31, 2015 I am back on Shape and working with the Nutritionist. I am not going to fall back into those bad habits this time. I learned a lot about myself in the past 10 months.

Yes Janet, my life is full of blessings and that is exactly why I still question today the whole depression issue that constantly knocks on the door of my brain. I have no reason to get depressed yet I do. I'll never fully understand that it is a brain chemical problem. Yet I also know that eating healthier and exercising keeps it a bay more so it is a vicious cycle at times.

Thank you for your support and encouragement.

I am getting a basket, grille pack and 1/2 case of pickling cucumbers (I'm splitting with someone else). This will be my first time for the pickling cukes. Hoping to can some in the coming days into a few different recipes. Enjoy your baskets.
