**After previously surpassing my goal, I have gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

I joined SparkPeople on March 1, 2010. While recovering from badly broken bones, tibia/fibula, I managed to become stronger, leaner, and healthier.

With hard work and with the help of Spark People, I lost over 20 pounds.

I can be stronger and leaner again!

Previous Goals:
1. Heal from broken leg enough to walk without crutches.
Achieved March 5, 2010

2. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 25 min mile.
Achieved approx. March 10, 2010

3. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 20 min mile.
Achieved March 24, 2010

4. Gain stength and stamina to be able to walk a 15 min mile.
Achieved 05/12/2010

Thank you so much for the encouragement that you gave me on my blog. It made me feel better. Even though I did up ending losing weight, I see how much stress I put on myself. You are right, I should not beat myself up over it, no matter what the scale says. Thank you for taking time out to comment! emoticon

Thank you for your kind words on my grieving blog. And especially thank you for your prayers. Powerful things, those prayers.

It's awfully nice that there's a place where I can just let it all gush out. I really appreciated the many other Mother Stories people shared too.

I know time will heal but evidently I am not all that good a patient. It's just good to know there is another side to this valley. Again, thank you for caring.
