Rekindling the Spark
Wednesday, February 17, 2021
I have been away from Sparkpeople for such a long time. So much has happened since I last logged in. One of my success was reaching my goal weight, thanks largely to following the Keto plan with my husband who is in a medically supervised program. After talking with my doctor and getting the OK I also gave it a try. By radically reducing carbs, and staying active with my running group, the pounds came off, old clothes fit again, and I looked THIN and felt great. Then, Covid. Running groups were cancelled and we just stayed home. All the time. It became impossible for me to stick with such a restrictive diet when trips to the store were so limited. I gained the Covid 2020 "20" as I've heard it called. So here I go again. I decided to try to lose weight without such a restrictive plan, but I know that means the weight will drop off more slowly. It's hard to think about losing these pounds AGAIN. I just can't seem to keep the pounds off after losing them. I really don't want to go through this process again, but I'm trying very hard to get that SPARK back. Remember how good it felt to be thin. Remember how good my clothes used to feel. Remember I'm not getting any younger and I need to do this for my health. Remember, I can do this. And I will.
