It takes me so long to figure things out, and once I do, I forget how I got there! For example - I had written a prior comment on this thread, and then I forgot how I did it! Duhhhhhhhh . Anyhow, love all the sharing and encouragement. We are all going this road together, and it doesn’t matter how many times we’ve been here, as long as we don’t stop!

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all the day long. Psalm 25:5

As opposed to getting discouraged - I was encouraged when I read from someone's post - "The struggle is every day." Wow! I felt like something was wrong with me when I am going along nicely, and wham, something not healthy just calls my name!!! I have been on this road countless times, and when I stop trying is when I fail. And this time, knowing that the struggle is there everyday gives me a new perspective this time.

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all the day long. Psalm 25:5

Welcome back! If I could truly figure out what has made me bounce around the same 40 lbs. for the last 9 years (and how to prevent it), after having a a stellar first go on Spark, I would write a book and make a lot of money. All I can do is stick to Spark and eventually find the path that will get me out of obesity. Therein perhaps lies the secret - sticking to Spark and utilizing all it has to offer. We can do this. Sounds like you are poised for a breakthrough after having been in a rough patch for a few years.

Wishing you all the very best. Glad you were able to get out of the toxic relationship. It's NOT easy and takes guts. NOW to apply that guts and determination to getting healthy. You can do it.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

Your book maybe a good outlet for you. I see some ladies that have active blogging skills, and they sometimes remember the person they once were or wanted to be and go for it. I love it and I wish you a wonderful journey.

Ugh. Years ago after I quit smoking, I took up a hobby making websites at the same time, and driving my kids around to various sporting events almost daily. Couple all that with my daytime desk job.....I gained a bunch of weight over time. I was miserable. Lots of health issues started popping up and more peeking up over the horizon, so I knew I had to do something. Back then, I found Spark People and it was the one thing that kept me going - I lost a lot of weight, got into the best shape of my life and felt wonderful, like I could do anything!

Well, after several consistent years, I had a couple drastic life changes and a new relationship with a downright evil person (didn't know it then). Over a 6 year period I slowly gained weight again (sheesh I can sure eat when I'm under stress) and now have almost reached the unhealthy state I was back when I first found Spark People.

So here I am again. Took me 8 months to get out of that toxic relationship and start over with my life. I am ready and really want to do this. I want to be healthy again! I want to go out mountain biking and xc skiing without feeling like I'm gonna die out there!

Its so surprising how a simple things such as a few years more in age can really make the physical activity get off to a slower start - my mind still feels like I'm in my 40's but my body.... oh, darn it anyway.

I guess I can use some inspiration to keep going with this - I don't seem to feel the 'fire' yet, like I felt when I started this before. That's about it. Sorry for the book. Cathy
