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 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 our site is inside for the winter - both because of cold weather of course and the dark since its an evening drop. Unloading the truck in the rain gets messy, especially the gym floor. Worth it all though.

Yes I am going through the whole Bible with the Quick study TV show and Bible Guide and we read the daily portion as a family first thing. I do it this way because, its easier to reinforce the Bible reading with the show after wards for the children. I always do devotionals books and Bible throughout the day but, I am tracking this because, morning Bible time was my weakness. I find my day starts out right when I get the word in emoticon first thing.
