It's Been a Long Time - Restarting Again
Sunday, February 17, 2019
It has been at least 5 years since I last used Sparkpeople. SparkPeople helped me achieve my goals a long time ago and is really one of the best online weight loss communities there is.
Since then a lot has changed, some good and some bad.
One is that I quit teaching. I really couldn't handle the stress of it anymore. Instead, I started a blog all about Disney World. I have also moved closer to Disney World so I can go a lot more often. My husband became a Cast Member too.
I have gained weight. I am embarrassed to say that I am not even sure how much. My scale goes to 450 and the last couple of months it won't register my weight. This is making super depressed. So even as I restart this journey I have no way for a while to track my progress.
Things I am Looking to Change:
- My weight
- My high blood pressure (uninsured until 2020)
- My endurance, I did have a time where I was doing ok and even did a Disney 10K I would love to be able to more again. I think I could really love doing races.
- My self-esteem. It has been hindering my social life and even my marriage and that has never happened before.
Overall, I am looking for a change and friends to encourage me along the way and I also want to be an encouragement for others.
