A Year and 40 Pounds Later...

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I've been away from Spark for one month shy of a year...and in that time, I've gained another 40 pounds.

This puts me at 280, up almost 80 pounds from my low of 203. Sigh. At least I'm not 300 pounds, again.

Nevertheless, I will climb back on my horse and head out again.

I must admit, I'm not as enthused this time as last. My heart isn't in it, so I'm afraid it won't stick...again.

But I can feel the effects of having put on this weight. My feet and back hurt. My sleeping is poor. My digestion is ill. My butt is wider. :-P

Okay...so here goes.

    Girl...I so feel your pain. I lost 68 lbs 2 years ago through a long and painful process of restricted eating and LOTS of sweat and pain. I got cocky and decided I was fit enough to try a little jogging in my routine...end result: tore the meniscus in my right knee that had to be surgically repaired. All the downtime after the surgery led to me "falling off the wagon" and slipping back to my lazy habits. I've gained back 25 of the 68 lbs I lost, and I feel like I've gained all 68 of it back. It's really humiliating to know that you CAN DO IT and YOU HAVE DONE IT...and you alone are responsible for the failure you are now experiencing.

    It's also empowering to know that you are capable of doing it, you have the strength, the stamina, the willpower and the knowledge to do it. You just have to find the same drive and the momentum. I have faith in you. YOU CAN DO IT. As a matter of fact, I make this commitment to you...I'll do it with you! You're strong, you're smart, you're beautiful, and darn it!!! PEOPLE LOVE YOU!
