I did so well on Spark People for a year and then as I have done in the past I let life get in the way of my health.

I now feel it is critical for me to lose. Suddenly I feel if I don't do something now my heath is in real jeopardy. When we are feeling fairly healthy and have gotten away with bad eating habits we let all those excuses get in the way of dealing with our weight.

All in all I know that I can do this if I choose to. I remember once hearing Dr Phil say you continue to do things the same way if you are getting something out of it. Let us all look deeply into whatever it is we are getting from overeating. Whether it be comfort food, control or the pleasure of eating foods we like. We can control this if we set our minds.

I am now facing bad labs. I am very close to Diabetic and my doctor will check again in 4 months. I think she is willing to work with me to get them down but I think she doesn't expect progress next time. But I know I will make great strides. This is serious. I do not want to be Diabetic.

I lost 3 today. That is 6 in the past two weeks. I can do this. It is only food!

I am back to tracking my food and taking care of me. Please join me!

    One of the weekly challenges in a challenge group I'm in is to play BINGO, with each square either representing a fitness challenge, a food challenge, or another type of challenge such as sending encouragement to another teammate. So for that week I always use the BINGO picture as my photo.

    I agree! Just want the year to be over. State is constantly telling people not to gather with others. Even if I invited people over for Christmas, I doubt anyone would come. All the media hype has everyone too scared. Haven't even decorated yet, part of me wonders what's the point anyway?

    He definitely won't fit in that box this year. He's growing like a weed, turns 5 in a few days.

    I'm purging stuff here too! Where does it all come from?

    Donated a car full of boxes of stuff about a month ago. Going through my clothes and other stuff (including seasonal decorations and costumes) and hopefully I will have another load ready to donate next week.
