Without Struggle There Is No Progress

I've been a member of Spark since Aug. of 07, although I didn't start using it until Jan. of 08. I lost 33 lbs. and maintained it for over a year. When I turned 50 I looked and felt the best I had in years.
Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.

Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.
Over the years of losing and not learning how to maintain I've learned that I have to do exercise I enjoy, eat some of the foods I like, and not try to be perfect.
I'm going to try again to get this weight off. I felt so much better and better about myself when I was thinner. I'm not going to make promises that I will reach certain goals by specific dates. That has worked for me in the past, but not lately. I don't want to break any more promises to myself so I'll take it slow.

Thank you so much for your prayers. They mean a lot. We are hoping it is minor and they won't have to be too aggressive with it. emoticon

Yes! It was a whole lot of work that really didn't seem like it was worth it.

Thanks for stopping by my Halloween blog. We were told by the new superintendent and principal that everyone wears costumes - no comments or questions were allowed. Of course, no one is around when we need to get them into and out of their costumes! Now if they would just make some important decisions! emoticon emoticon emoticon For listening!
