Making it back after a long hiatus

Sunday, April 30, 2017

After quite a few life changes, I have made it back! Sadly the weight loss thing took a nosedive, but I have made other changes that I really needed and once again am focusing on my fitness.

I finally, finally, FINALLY quit smoking!! I have been totally nicotine, smoke, vapor free since last October! This was a huge thing for me so that I could move on with my fitness goals. Unfortunately, I allowed myself to gain weight back with mindless eating to fill the void of not being able to smoke/vape. Time to get back to work!

I broke up with my boyfriend. Sadly, this relationship was dragging me down, making me anxious, and making it hard to focus on me. So, I ended it. I am totally committed to my health in every aspect, and that includes my emotional health.

I had a huge job change. The company I worked for got bought out by a new company. This has been stressful and took a while to get used to. I had a shift/day change and am working a totally different schedule. But I am now assimilated to these changes and am ready to get back to working on my physical health.

Life is good. I thank God every day for his strength and blessings. And I am so excited to have these weights off of me. I feel like a new person, and now I need to make one more change - my fitness level!

I have missed everyone on here and I look forward to catching up on everyone's progress.

    Hope you are still doing well & have continued your journey of positive changes.

    With a few new SparkAccounts through the years, I finally made it to Rivendell.

    Be good to yourself & take care.

    Congratulations for quitting the nicotine! That's quite an achievement. Congratulations on getting back to SP. You CAN do this -- you've proven that, already!
