Today is July 1, 2020 and I have missed being here at sparks and my weight shows it. I still 100 pounds down but I have put 30 lbs back on and that's not good. To much going on and its time to buckle down again.
I'm over a hundred 100 lbs down since I sparked the last time. It's August 23,2017. Ive taken charge and still have alittle ways to go. Ive been gone for several years.
I've been sparkin for 3 years. Sometimes the journey has been easy and at other times its been a disaster. But I'm still here hoping that I have more easy days this next year.

I did not accomplish as much as I would have like since joining Sparkpeople but my journey has become very rocky with situations that I was not expecting or planning for(Such is Life).

However, I have learn alot about myself and in most cases I have my emotional eating under control...

I'm trying to be outfront more and not hid behind anything, which means you smile more and attempt to stop putting up walls to keep people away.

When your fat you just feel like the world thinks your not a good or smart person and thats just wrong. I am a goodand smart person and so are each of us!!!!

Like I always say "Life is Not a dress rehearsal so lets get going and make the best of it....NO MATTER WHAT!!!!

5/24/10 Its time to take charge of my life ! Not for the kids or anyone else but me.

The emotional eating must be gotten under control! The only one that can take that control is me!

I've hidden behind my weight far to long, This excuse must disappear and I must stop hidding

This is going to be on of the toughest journeys that I have taken. My weight has always when up and down like a roller coaster, but this time I when to the top of the roller coaster and I haven't come down in awhile.

Its amazing when the kids where gone and making their own lives and kids I really thought that this emotional roller coater would be easier to control. It didn't, It got worse as I got older. The closer I get to my golden years, the more stuff happens.

I really would like to find a buddy to walk with on a regular basis as well as an email buddy (they can be different people). My location is in Manatee County, Florida and we have alot of really nice places to walk(it would just be easier with a wlaking buddy).

I keep in mind that "My life is not a dress reheasal its the real thing. Things will only change if I put the my energy and willpower into play. Life isn't perfect and if or when I fall I will need to get up acknowlege the facts and get back on track.
