Timing is everything! I'm impressed with people that lose weight and keep it off for good, but most of us (including me) regain it and have to go through the process more than once. I think the thing about SparkPeople is that it is possible to learn healthy habits here....not just a diet. I'm glad you are back.

I looked at your pictures from the event...they were inspiring!

Thank you for sharing that story. That just goes to prove that we can do anything if we put our minds to it.

Timing is everything! Ive been a member of Sparks for a number of years now - and as a photographer and photojournalist - This is one of the first groups i joined. For various reasons (lack of discipline, hectic life, whatever you want to call it) I've been up and down, lost weight and gained it back, been active (somewhat) and not so active on Sparks -- the most recent Not-active period lasting the last few years. The weight has piled back on, along with the years, to a level it is severely affecting my life - social, professional, medical.
Been telling myself i have to do something about it, but never have the time, the heart to face defeat again, the shame of trying when its gotten so bad...
But today, I covered a local Adventure Duathlon for my newspaper and took photos for the organizers. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and .. the participants, volunteers and organizers were so inspiring - then i went with one of them to the top of the mountain to take photos of the Rapel and ascent stations - which involved hiking first down a very steep very (to me) lengthy hill -- and then hiking right back up -- it was horrible-- i was out of breath hurting gasping turning red -- embarassing-- shameful -- the sweet young gentleman escorting me was so patient and kind -- and when i got to the top again -- barely able to move -- legs shaking -- completely out of breath -- he turned and smiled and instead of saying some joke or making fun of me (heck, I would have made fun of me) or saying nothing - he just said "You Did It"
Something about the way he said it - and all of a sudden instead of being mortified (ok well so i was still a bit mortified) i was PROUD of myself. I didnt have to climb down there - but i did and i made it back up -- what could i do if i was back in shape????
Ive been around a lot of athletes lately - covering the triathlons here and doing a magazine article on how the definition of "athleticism" is changing -- and they are rubbing off on me..
Then to top it off, i just finished posting the photos from today and what showed up in my mail but a notification from this group --- leading me right back home here to Sparks
Timing IS everything!
Here's to the first step of the CLIMB - cause next year - I will complete the whole course - it may take me all 6 hours - but im starting training now -- and it WILL happen
