I've been with SP for 4 years - to start with I found this site such a fantastic help, and with just little steps at a time, I lost over 40lb and felt great.

However, I am not sure where it all went wrong, but I've been really struggling over the last 6 months or so, and have undone all my hard work.

I've been with SP for 4 years - to start with I found this site such a fantastic help, and with just little steps at a time, I lost over 40lb and felt great.

However, I am not sure where it all went wrong, but I've been really struggling over the last 6 months or so, and have undone all my hard work. Lost my motivation to exercise regularly, and found it hard to stick to the right food choices. When I have done things "right" for a few weeks, I've not seen the results I want and give up all too quickly!

For the last month I've been dealing with a terrible family tragedy, with my sister taken ill, I've been so worried and upset, I've just not felt like getting back on track (see my recent blog for more details)

My sister has such a hard road to recovery ahead of her, that it puts my weight issues in perspective and makes me realise what a simple thing getting back on track should be compared to the hurdles she faces.

The Spring 5% challenge with the Teddy Bear team starts tomorrow and I am determined to make the most of the challenge and get myself sorted. Food plans at the ready and exercise workouts to hand. I am going to do this, for my sister's sake.

Thanks for the Spotlight Goodie and the friend add! I have added you too! You and I seem to have started this Spring Challenge in a similar place. Everything had been going great now it's not so much, Those pesky junk foods are my downfall and my calories are slowly increasing. We can support each other through this rough patch, then we will see results!! emoticon
