Hi, my name is AnnieJaye

Friday, November 27, 2009

I started SparkPeople on July 2nd, 2009 and lost just under 30 pounds in two months... when I was 0.5 pounds away from my first goal (being under 400 lbs) I stopped doing everything that I was taught and gained back 12 pounds over the following 2 months.

I neglected myself and turned my back on the healthier decisions for two months; I have to refocus and get my life back. I need to think about long term instead of the short term 'fix' I get from the wrong foods.

Hi, my name is AnnieJaye and I'm a food addict...

    Hello, dear. The first think you must do is to feel you deserve anything that comes to you. Feel you deserve! When someone gives you a compliment or a gift. Don't feel you need to retribute, just accept it and say thanks with your heart.

    We are used to sabotage our success just because we don't feel we are worth. But believe me. YOU ARE WORTH AND YOU DESERVE!!

    Just for being here asking for help, it means you didn't give up. Now, just believe you deserve the best in your life. emoticon

    Sounds like you have the right mind set and are back to doing what you have to do. Your previous success was phenomenal; you can do it again.

    So glad to see you again, AnnieJaye! You did the most important thing of all here, you did not QUIT. Slipping is part of the process, it's part of the learning experience so you know what works and what doesn't. Don't beat yourself up over that, learn from it, be empowered by it, and move forward. You CAN do this! Hugs, Di

    Welcome back AnnieJaye. You'll do it this time - just hang in there and take a day at a time. You've lost 30 lbs so now you have to focus on the next 30 lbs and before you know it you'll be well on the way. emoticon Jean

    Hi Annie Jaye... I don't know what it is about breaking that 400 mark. I'd get to 403 and stop. I say I don't know but in reality, I know for me I had to do some work on my emotions. I'm a food addict as well. It's a long process of self discovery and it doesn't work without "rigorous self honesty" That comes and goes for me. When it goes..(self honesty), so do I. But since I'm here now, that means I'm willing to keep moving forward. You're here also and sounds like you are willing to try again. You're in the right place.

    Hi Annie! And welcome back :)


    Don't worry about gaining some weight back. It took me 2 whole years to finally "get it." I was on Spark for two years and lost only the 10 lbs I kept gaining and losing back and forth... I needed to learn to eat right, to say no to foods, to get it in my HEAD and in my heart.

    Coming back is half the success. It means you have an open mind and you are willing to work at it. You are doing much better than you think you!

    Welcome back :)
