Not Necessarily a Failure, Yet Definitely Not a Success.

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

It has been a while since my last blog, status update, serious food entry or weigh in. I was very successful in my journey and as a result of a combination of confidence and necessity I felt that I would be 'safe' in managing things on my own without having the SPARK to keep me going. The results are so-so. I have gained very little of the weight back (literally less than 5 lbs), however I have gained weight. I found that while it was more work to some degree to diligently keep up with SparkPeople, it is easier to succeed and remain accountable. So here I am. Not quite with my tail between my legs close enough.

    I began with SP about a year ago, and within 7 months had lost almost 50 pounds! I got distracted by life and new activities and lost track of my daily check-in with SparkPeople. I have to say that I slowly but surely slid off track and by January had stopped exercising, tracking my food and had gained over 25 pounds back. So, I feel similar to you in that not keeping up with SP isn't necessarily a failure, but I prefer to think of it as a "lesson learned." I have learned that this website helps me to keep focused and on track, and learning that is definiely a step toward my continuing success! Good luck, and welcome back!
