An Explanation

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Yes, I've been pretty absent. I'm sorry. Let me explain.

When I'm starting out on an endeavor, I need a lot of support. Once I get going, my need for that same level of support wanes. I prefer to continue on my own. This happened when I was in a bad relationship. I joined a church, got support, broke up with my bf. Once I was happy and moving on in life, I didn't need the church any more. It wasn't a good fit for the long run; I'm not a huge fan of organized religion. So I moved on.

I'm still using the SparkPeople tools for food and fitness, but I'm withdrawing from the social aspect. One reason is I'm no longer working, so I'm not in front of a computer all day, bored. I'm home exercising, cooking, keeping house, and running errands. I love it and feel very fulfilled. I'm also busy planning my wedding, which is fast approaching in just over 3 months! Here's the gown I finally decided on:

So all in all, I'm pretty busy. I'm keeping up with my healthy eating and exercising as best as I can. I'm down to 172, total loss of 28 lbs. so far. I can hopefully lose another 15 by the wedding. I still love you all, but I'm living my life away from the computer these days. =) I still check in, so don't be a stranger!

    I completely understand! I do the same thing. You look beautiful in your gown!!

    How are the flitygirlfit dvds? I'm thinking that's what they were called anyway? I'm still debating getting them for a goal reward. Do you like them?

    Congratulations on the loss thus far Sarah! I'm really proud of what you've accomplished, and I know that you'll continue on just fine without the church of SP. :)

    BTW - you look awesome in that dress!
