Was doing pretty good last year, with inspiration from Spark friends. I was off work due to ankle surgery recuperation, and had the time to hit the Spark page. After returning to work in January 2011, my computer time dwindled, and I was tired from working all day, and did not push myself to make time for my Spark goals. However, going back to work did help me lose the 10 lbs I gained during the summer, when I was sitting around watching tv and recuperating! Now, I'm back to my original overweight status... lol ...

so..... recently joined the ATC gym that opened in my area. Between the heat index and my rotating shifts, it is very hard for me to find that inner strength to keep moving enough to do some type of workout.

i do know one thing, i am tired of feeling heavy and sluggish.... i have got to find my 'happy place' again!

thanks to my Spark friends, who wrote me sweet notes and checked on me the last 6 months -- it's what kept Sparkpeople in the back of my mind, and motivated me to sit down today and make the decision to do what I need to do.

This was the year I said I was going to take care of myself .... get healthier, stronger, and just plain feel better!

My Program:
Right now I am monitoring what I eat on the Food Tracker, and learning how quickly all the calories/fat/carbs add up. I have been walking each day, and this week I'm working really hard on eating right. The portion sizes are still taking some getting used to!

    Where are you?

    Looking to see if you had any recent blogs, but none to be found. I hope you are still here. I was waaaay off the program for a while. Did some back-sliding, to be sure, but trying now to get back in the groove.

    Well, hope to hear from soon.

    Oh, BTW, I changed my profile pic and see that you have, too. I like yours, although it did take me a second or two to make the connection with your user name. LOL

    Thanks for the add, it was great to meet you as well. I think I have a pretty good balance right now with SP time; although I have to say that I still obsess a little over the points...LOL!! I look forward to getting to know you better. Have a great weekend!!
