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 am going to restart the program (March 2015) and get that back off and maybe even more. I don't regret the huge jump start I am giving my health using this program at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly. However, I must make a strong effort to have plans to not let myself fall back into these familiar patterns.

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). Making me a priority in this!

Yes, red dye 40 is bad. I have a friend here though that keeps her autistic son off sugar all together and feels it makes a huge difference. Not sure what the background on that was but she 'preaches' it so that is why I made my comment. I agree - sugar isn't good for any of us.

Yes, a foam memory pillow that was 'too' full. It even felt too full at the store but what it said on the box made me believe it was right for what I needed. Not making that mistake again.

I have a memory foam pillow that I think is broken down to the point of not supporting my neck the way it used to...time to replace it is what I'm thinking.
