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!

You are in the top five for team fitness minutes and that deserves applause!!!! emoticon

Don't listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it's what you want to do and it's within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.

You are doing it! Stay on your healthy path!

I did start the Slim & Sassy drops on Wednesday. You know how I wondered how I could make the 16 oz. last all day? The mint is strong enough that I definitely can't guzzle it! I have noticed a little difference, but I'm sure that as I use it longer I'll notice more. Especially as things settle down and we get back to a normal eating schedule.

I love the "hammer effect"! That is usually what I need, too! I stayed out of PTA president till last daughter senior year cause I am not crazy about the politics stuff--I could be in charge, can do the public speaking but have no stomach for the politics. So--not sure what I'll do--still looking at options.
