My Journey

I ignored all the warning signs of what an unhealthy weight does to you and I don't want to ignore them any longer. Hiding from truth does not make it go away...it just made me fatter! So admitting that there was a problem is half the battle, as they say! I am overweight, I am not healthy and have pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and blood pressure that is creeping up. All these issues are directly attributed to being overweight and sedentary. I am not even going to the vanity issue yet...I used ...

I am not even going to the vanity issue yet...I used to look good in jeans and a bikini - those days are long gone, but not impossible to recover. This is my journey.....

It looks like maybe you were having a rough spot a few weeks ago. I read a different comment, though, where you talked about not depriving yourself but to make a special event out of a treat, eating a cookie, sipping coffee. I just wanted to say that that comment really really helped me today.

I'm back on track after about a year of slacking off, and I wanted to let you know that regardless of where you are in your journey, you are inspiring someone.

I read your comments, too. Hang in there. Quitting only adds stress to your already stress filled situation. If you quit you might beat yourself up over "another failure." Even if you aren't making progress, the honesty of tracking can be helpful. Do what you can. Be at peace. We've all felt this way. Drink the water. Hold out for better days yet to come. There is no time limit on this journey and it's not a race. emoticon

I read your comment on eating when you are not hungry. I think that you need to continue to stay with Spark, even tho you are under a lot of pressure right now. Things will turn around for you so if you have something good in your life that lets you express your negative as well as positive feelings you need to do that. HANG in there....trouble don't last ALWAYS.....Our health is something we need to work on for life whether we are stressed or not. I personally am not terribly successful with my weight loss efforts but I hang in there anyway and have made some positive changes along the way as small as they may be.....something beats nothing. Anyway, I just wanted to encourage you to stay the course, maybe not so intensely if you are feeling stressed by it, but log in, read an article, get encouragement and get off. Whatever you do, don't quit. It's your life we are talking about. May God be with you during this time.
