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'm glad you made it to the gym, too! Yes, getting there at a certain time can be tricky but the point is, we got there! emoticon

Thank you for the flower pot and good wishes when I was DOD! We were in VA visiting grandchildren and having a great time (and eating a little too much)!

I love to do counted cross-stitch, too! Haven't done it in years, but I have an itch to stitch! emoticon emoticon

I enjoyed reading about your Mother's Day. I'm a dropout of the Spring into Shape program. I've been such a failure this last session I'm debating on whether or not to join again. I've been trying the THM diet, which I think is the right one for me, but I have a hard time with its restrictions, even though it's a very sensible way to eat. Reading your blog today tilted me toward joining up the team again, though. Thanks for the good cheerful approach.
