I'm back. emoticon

I've been gone for a long while, almost a year I believe. I was coming on, checking in on groups but not really taking part. I'm happy to say that I did hit 196, my second lowest weight while on sparks and for about 6 months I stayed between there and 213. At that time I was working out and weight lifting and so I didn't really care about the gain since everything was fitting the same. Then I started swelling up really badly and was at 218. My trainer said to forget about it as a "weight gain" and I did. Then I had several injuries and had to stop working out. Even with that said and done, a year after reaching 218 I was sitting at 220, only a 2 pound gain. I managed to keep off 37 pounds for over a year and that is the best I've ever done on not regaining the weight back. I was still at 220 come Jan and then hit 232 this March. Then April came and something went really, really wrong.

I jumped from 232 to 263 by May 1st.

Yes, that is about 30 pounds in 1 month.

I don't know what happened. I even had a full 7 days of eating clean challenge in which only one day did I cook from a box. It was a writing month and I had plenty of snacks. I can also say that I jumped back on soda.

But 31 pounds in a month? You have got to be kidding me!

I weighed in at the start of every month so I knew it was the month of April. Right then I decided that it was time to get back on track.

Today starts week 2 and I'm already 11 pounds down. I'm hoping to hit 20 pounds gone by the end of this month.

I won't be here daily but I'm aiming for 3 days a week and more blogging and status updates.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I also had a massive regain from a significant weightloss and for some reason now was the time to be remotivated and I have been on Sparkpeople routinely since Monday.

    Everything has been good except my sleep so I am going to call it a night so I can get that goal for a night.

    Let's keep moving the size downward; being gentle with ourselves.

    Glad to see you back...

    And I'm sure you'll be back where you were soon enough... half the battle is already won with exercising and eating right coupled with a mindset to just DO IT
