I have been thinking alot about how to make this 'path of rewalking' different so that it is successful and life changing. Reflecting on the reasons for my weight gain, I realized that while I had changed my body after losing so much weight, I h... Read more

This week has been a good one. I feel like I am finally back on track. It took awhile to get out of the 'feelings-numbing, comfort eating' mode. But I felt myself spiraling down and getting more and more depressed. At a certain point, this had ... Read more

Looking back on the week, there have been ups and downs but at least a few baby steps made. And yes I had hoped that I could write that I was 100% on track and going strong now. But that is not what happened. I am still using food to deal with m... Read more

I am back after taking a bit of time off. It started with a week vacation and then just sort of grew into more weeks... What I learned is that without the tracking, support and accountability, it is very difficult to continue on my 'return to he... Read more

I haven't posted anything in some weeks and also really wasn't on SP very much, did manage to keep tracking my food and exercise. I went down that hole of overeating and isolating that I so wanted to avoid. But well it happened and I am finally ... Read more
