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.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior (had to take most of a year off for the Shape program) and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. Making me a priority in this!

Still doing the 5% on the same team. But I am supposed to be maintaining--and I am up WAY more than I like. I was away on vacation and gained--although I didn't think I would based on how we were eating. So--frustrated, still not 100% from being sick last week and now trying to figure out what to do--back to my 10K steps a day but really want to drop 10 pounds--again. But I am still moving on.

Thanks Janet. I did enjoy yoga last week. I just cried throughout most of the class is all after nearly hyperventilating to death just walking into the gym. Amazing what fears we create within ourselves.

Looking forward to class tonight too.

I was on the road traveling to see out of state kiddos during the "meet and greet" week. Internet in trailer parks ... well let's just say it's challenging.

How are things going for you? I am 8 pounds from one-lander!!!!

We rarely have an over abundance of volunteers at our BB site. The biggest problem was the attitude of the lady who ran it before I took over. She turned everyone away that didn't arrive on time and wasn't always nice about it (she didn't used to be that way but turned rather bitter towards the end of her time as a coordinator). The area coordinator had asked me a while ago to work on the perspective of the site and I've been doing that. Encouraging people rather than saying 'no, we don't need you" the way the previous lady did. I personally think people should arrive on time for scheduled events but sadly society doesn't agree. Its a fine line I think and each site is run slightly different I would suppose. Probably no right or wrong answer to it but it sure was a rotten time to find out someone complained about me.
