Wow, here we go again! The on-going "battle of the bulge".....I have had a tough year and I just couldn't seem to get my head in the game in 2008. I vowed to change things in 2009, and then things kind of went haywire. Now, we are into week 4 of the New Year and I am still dragging my behind. I don't lack the "want"....I most definitely want to lose weight, but somewhere between here and there I can't get the "want" and the "do" to come together. They don't seem to cooperate very well! My mind keeps saying and then my stomach and mouth say Not only eat, but eat anything and everything that is bad for you and eat a lot of it! Well, my body has most definitely suffered the consquences and I am at my highest weight ever and I am so very disappointed......mad.....and ashamed. I had lost 45 pounds from July 2007 to December 2007. I was feeling great. I still had a lot to lose but I felt wonderful. And then starting in 2008, I let myself go..........BIGTIME! Not only have I gained the 45 pounds back that I lost, but I managed to gain an additional 10 pounds. So in the past year I have gained 55 pounds. 55 POUNDS.....55 POUNDS..........I guess I don't need to state again how extremely disappointed I am in myself!

But anyways, no more feeling sorry for more being too hard on myself. I just have to see this whole process as baby steps. I didn't gain it all overnight, so I am not going to lose it quickly either. It is going to be a long process, one in which I have to take the good with the bad and one that I have be patient with. I am going to fail sometimes but I just have to learn to pick myself up and start over again...........hopefully I will not have any year long hiates's again. My body can't afford any more poundage! I have been to hard on my body for too long. I have no energy, no discipline and my body is starting to ache.......I am so ready for a change! So once again..........Here is to starting over! Good luck to everyone out there and I hope you all are very successful with your weight loss journeys! I know, personally, I would love to have a lot of support and a lot of people cheering me on!

    I was so glad to see your post! And I am so proud of you for your weight loss!! Woo hoo!

    Good old Weight Watchers. They make money reinforcing the things we already know! I'm sure it helps to have that accountability though. I stopped going about half-way through the sessions I paid for. I was too embarrassed to go weigh in with a 10 pound gain. I'm really glad you have been able to stick to it and 15 pounds gone is awesome!

    I'm back Sparking, tracking my food every day and my exercise. Trying to get that dedication and focus in place to really shed some pounds. I've been doing all right the past week, just have to keep the momentum going. Same old same old...

    How are the kids? How is Davin? How are YOU??

    My kiddies are doing well, getting bigger every day. I just don't know where the time went (I'm sure you understand :-) Summer will be here soon, so we'll be spending a lot of time at the pool and the park. Pretty much anything free is where we'll be is my motto this year. Trying to save money and cut expenses which is always fun. Thankfully Jeff and I still have our jobs, we both made it through several rounds of lay-offs at our companies. Hopefully the economy starts to pick up and we don't have to sweat it through another round. Things are pretty bleak in Michigan right now, so we are very grateful that we are both still working. (Knock on wood)

    What's been going on with you?

    Hi Mimi!!

    I decided to 'give up' for a while. Boo me! But now I'm back and ready to get in shape. I just joined Weight Watchers and am going to my first meeting on Thursday. I decided to come back to SP though because it has always been so positive and encouraging. I'm hoping between all the Sparkers and having someone weigh me in once a week, I'll be motivated to sticking to the plan this time.

    How are you doing my friend? I've missed you and hope you decided to give it the old New Year's try!

    How was Christmas? How is the family? How are YOU!?
