Better and Thank You SP

Sunday, January 20, 2019

I think I've managed to thank each of you individually for your comments on my blog yesterday. There were so many and they seemed to keep coming. So not to miss thanking someone I am writing this blog to do just that.

I hesitated to reach out yesterday, but felt the need. I now feel it was the right thing to do. I received so many kind and encouraging words. Ideas of things to try and pray about. I needed your input and suggestions and your hugs and prayers.I appreciate you all.

I'm doing better today and with God's help will be back on track and moving forward soon. I still can't explain why I took such a detour, but I was aware the entire time. Well, not at the beginning as weight can creep back on. Once I became aware I couldn't fool myself any longer. That's when I should have done something about it rather than let things get worse.

I did it to myself as I quit using the tracking tools available on SP. I told myself when I began this weight loss that I would track forever as it was my down fall after doing so well at WW many years ago. Still have to figure out why I got lazy and allowed myself to stop and I will pray about it.

I know life brings its dark days and that they don't last. Doesn't mean these times aren't difficult just that there's always hope. I thank God for that and His love for me.

Again I thank all that came to my blog yesterday and today too for that matter. God's blessings to you and your loved ones.

    Those trackers are what kept me going and keeps you aware of calorie intake. Have you ever looked into going gluten free? I feel great after doing so and lost 20 pounds just from doing that! Been GF for almost 3 years now. The stuff makes me literally sick.
    Sounds like you're on the right track, keep at it. emoticon

    So easy to stop tracking but it is a downhill spiral. So glad you are back. Remember it is baby steps and one at a time that seems to work best. None of us is perfect but shouldn't beat yourself up over mistake. Hopefully learn something so next time you get back on your feet even faster.

    Isn't a brand new day a wonderful gift from the Lord? I am happy that you are already feeling better, and just as important, supported. Hugs!

    I'm glad you are feeling better!
    One of the traps in losing weight successfully is that it feels easy, routines start to work by themselves, less effort is required... and then it is easy to react by loosening up!
    At least in my case, that was a main reason of gaining back.
    And I know many Sparkers have been through this, you are in good company!
    The key is drawing a line and doing the things that worked well.
