As most of you know I have fallen by the wayside these last 4-5 months. I gained a lot of weight of the first of the year and just couldn't get the scales to budge. I lost my motivation and will to try. Then my dad became increasingly sicker and weaker. I retired to move in with my dad and help take care of him. I had little reason to keep sparking except for my friends here. Thank you all for your love and support.
The last time I weighed was May 29th. I had gained more weight. I became lax in tracking my food and workouts. In fact I ate all the wrong foods junk foods, Hi amounts of salt, stopped drinking my water. I just didn't care. My friends kept encouraging me to keep trying, not to give up...it fell on closed ears. I wanted to do better but just couldn't seem to follow through with the commitment. I became increasingly depressed. The only thing that kept me afloat was YOU!! my friends at Spark people.
This week I decided to weigh myself, I knew I hadn't been eating right of exercising. I felt depressed and defeated. I just had to know how bad it was, how much damage had I done.
So, yesterday I did it. With a fatalistic attitude I got on the scale. I couldn't believe what it said. In fact I weighed myself again to be sure. On May 29th I weighed 273. The scales said I weighed 264. I had lost 9 lbs. I don't know how but I am thrilled! I gave me a lift I most definitely needed. Maybe I will find my motivation and will power once more. Heres hoping and praying. ... Thank All of you my friends for being there, encouraging me to hang in there and keep trying.
