TIME TO HIT MY RESTART BUTTON!

UPDATE: I vowed at the end of 2013 to make 2014 an awesome year. I had steadily been losing weight from October of 2011 - May of 2014. Then life did nothing but throw curve ball after curve ball. When the dust finally settled in August I took a good hard look at the damage. I was devastated at what I saw. In 3 months I had gained almost 10 pounds after steadily losing for YEARS.

UPDATE: I vowed at the end of 2013 to make 2014 an awesome year. I had steadily been losing weight from October of 2011 - May of 2014. Then life did nothing but throw curve ball after curve ball. When the dust finally settled in August I took a good hard look at the damage. I was devastated at what I saw. In 3 months I had gained almost 10 pounds after steadily losing for YEARS. I didn't even let PCOS stand in my way. Yet, upon further inspection I discovered all of the red flags and things I had done wrong.

September 1, 2014 I hit my restart button! I'm not going to hit my goal for the year. However there is a silver lining. I was able to slam on the breaks at a 10 pound gain before it got out of control.

-------------------------

After the loss of my husband and daughter and having to fight to stay alive in 2008 I finally decided I needed to do something for me. I started actively being a part of Sparkpeople in 2011, even though I've been signed up since 2006. Although I was able to find happiness in life after my tragedy I still wasn't completely happy.

-----------

It is a rough time of year for me from November - the end of April. I've found my renewed love for WWE and John Cena. Yes, you could say I've gone from a Disney obsession to a John Cena obsession. Yes, my friends my laugh and make jokes but its helped me through this time of year. Plus I have to admit he's not to bad to look at. :)

"Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."
