Third times a charm - no more excuses. I want off this rollercoaster

1st attempt was after I gained 25 lbs after I quit smoking on 8/1/10. I joined spark on 1/1/11 and lost about 20 of it over 8 months and felt great.

Then fall hit (my busy time at work). I went off the plan and gained about7 of those lbs back in 2 months

Then we lost our girl Cheers and I gained the rest of it back

2nd attempt was in May of 2012 when we knew Sammy our new puppy was going to be coming home soon. I really dedicated myself to the program. Bought the cookbook, started batch cooking, reasearshed more etc. I managed to take of 13 lbs by mid to late sept.

Then fall hit (and my busy time at work) This year we we lostour 1 full time employee (she had to retire) that did so much to help me out. The replacement we hired was a complete failure so I got to add a bunch ofthose responsibilites to my long list I already had. Needless to say, fell off the program and gained the weight back.

3rd (and better be final attempt) I started back up again on 1/6/13 and this time I am determined to finish this for good. I have timeto adapat to the new workload and get in a routine before fall hits.
