I haven't been sparking for a few weeks. During those weeks I have been laid off from my job and managed to gain even more weight. I'm extremely happy to be away from the job that was draining my spirit. I turned into a depressed, negative and very unhappy person. I'm trying my best to get the old Kim back. Today, this beautiful Easter Sunday, I pledge to take care of myself both body and spirit. I also pledge to keep in touch with the wonderful support team that I have with Spark. I haven't been a good friend to anyone the past several months and I apologize. Today is a new day and a new beginning for me. I am going to track everything I eat and each exercise I do. I'm missing out on life because I feel too fat to do anything. Time for change. I want to thank all my Spark Friends for your support and I promise to be a better friend in the future.

    Kim -you're such a great person, I hope you feel better soon. Sometimes it's easy to lose focus on our it's good that you realize you got to take extra care of yourself- and are back to losing weight and exercising. Hang in there.,you're doing really well!

    emoticon back! Kim told me about your job but as you say, if it was draining your spirit, then you are better off without it. Everything happens for a reason (look at when I lost my job in November and got this wonderful new job)... Great things are around the corner for you KIM!!

    Cheers to NEW Beginnings!! emoticon

    It is a blessing in disguise. I have been layed off once and it was such a horrible experience. Keep a routine even though you aren`t working. Wake up, shower, have your coffee, walk your pup(s). You`ll feel so much better! I found that when I first moved here after leaving an abusive relationship that I felt that i was in a rut and would spend all day in my PJ`s. I didn`t care how I looked and would rush to get into the shower right before my parents came home. Keep that body moving!
