An old snippet of my spark journey:

I have been a Sparkmember for quite some time. When I first joined, I loved the site, the sparkfriends, amazing ideas and all the support. I was able to shed the pounds I set out to and then the other shoe dropped... I've worked in a chaotic career for the past 9 years and it took a huge toll on me. With all the chaos and trauma, I lost sight of taking care of myself... It is time to regain balance in my life and make myself a priority.

I re-embarked on this journey for the 5,000,257th time to get healthy, shed excess pounds and to feel better about myself --The main focus each time I try to shed pounds after re-gaining 20-30 pounds of stress induced self-loathing. I had allowed my stressful job to take over (yet again) lost touch with important people in my life & with myself, didn�t prioritize anything other than work and made the stress inducing, demanding job #1 and my only priority.

"It didn't take a week to put the weight on... why would we assume it'll take a week to take it off?"

I'm choosing to stop:
-Making Excuses!!!!
-Eating my emotions
-Feeling sorry for myself
-Being dormant
-Allowing everything and everyone to take precedence over my health and happiness

Hey, You are allowed to "fall off the wagon" at your own wedding and honeymoon! Good grief we are all human. Don't worry about it. I have been terrible but am so busy at work I haven't had time to snack, so I have lost a couple lbs. by default. I have a wedding to go to next May and will use that as the "dangling carrot" to lose some weight. I'm sure your wedding was beautiful and the honeymoon heavenly. Hope you are very very happy. Take care.
