Wow-It's almost a year!!!

Saturday, December 26, 2009

It has been almost a year since my last activity on this site. Not Good! I'm really in need of an overhaul. I have not been following program and the scale does not lie. I have to focus on me again. I lost sight of me. Major changes at work as well as with my son's pursuit of his career. I realize even more so -I am an emotional eater. I need to let it all go and start back concentrating on me. I did it before and I hope to do it again. Pray for me. I am in a state where I feel out of control I can't get a handle on my cravings. I used to not give in to temptation-I have to find that drive again. This time of the year is soooo hard.

    I believe you will have the weight off in no time at all. Just go back to the things you did and think back on what motivated you to lose the weight before. Pray that god gives you the drive and motivation you used to have and He will do it. With God's help anything is possible. Be encouraged and don't give up! emoticon

    You have just made a huge step by admitting that control made a temporary escape. You can get it back by sticking with the program that allowed you to lose. This time of year is terribly hard. Like you I feel that loss of control, but I know we aren't alone. Stick with Spark for the support needed to get you past this obstacle.

    You know what works. Get back into it.

    Hang in there.

    Statistically only 5% of people who lose weight manage to stay at goal.

    The first two years after getting to goal you have almost 100% chance of gaining the weight back, so this is when you're most vulnerable.

    The next three years your chances of gaining it back are 60%.

    After 5 years the chances drop to 50%.

    So it gets better.

    It apparently takes time to figure out and manage maintenance.

    Hang in there and get back in the swing of things. The first step in solving a problem is realizing that you have a problem...you are there. I am praying for you and you do the same for me. I have been out of control as well and the pounds sneak right back again. We can and will do this in 2010! I am an educator as well and know the rigor of the job. It does not stop. Then you put family on top of that and..well you know the rest.
    Stay encouraged!
