Back To the Future

Saturday, July 29, 2017

So I have been away from Spark for several years now - after successfully losing over 130lbs I felt like I could go it alone and I managed for a while, but slowly, inevitably, the weight started to creep back on - no - not ALL the weight. But enough.... A regain of about 50 pounds has convinced me that I need to go back to the things that were working so well for me because I do not want to embrace heaviness again with all that comes with it... I don't want higher blood pressure or increased cholesterol. I don't want to keep buying bigger pants! I don't want that feeling of trying to hide my size and being uncomfortable in my own skin...
I have realized that I need you guys - I need this community of others striving to find balance and wellness and sane eating habits in the same way that an alcoholic needs their AA community.
I am realizing that truly - there is no magic way to stay healthy and slim - there is a continual commitment to spending some time every day on me and my health, no matter how many other things there are to do!
I am so grateful that this website is still here and I hope I find some of my old Spark friends still here!!
