"Get it Together September"

Friday, September 02, 2016

The first 4 months of 2016 I was tracking well, losing weight and staying focused. January, February, March and April followed my all year consistency of 2015. Then when May rolled around, I started losing traction on my consistent healthy habits and I started losing ground and gaining weight. May, June, July and August floundered by and I gained back most of the 13 pounds I got rid of in the first quarter of this year. September starts the last 4 months of the year and I am pledging to GET BACK to my best habits and get back to the weight I was on April 30 before I let everything start unraveling. Yes, I am still over 100 pounds down from my WW starting weight, but I am not happy with how I have been living 1/3 of this year.

I have not caught on to really using FB or Spark people in the way I benefitted from the former WW online community... but I am NOT giving up!

    How are you doing today?

    We KNEW the community website. It's where I found YOU and read your blogs. I'm still a newbie in figuring this sparky stuff out, kinda lost, but I'm learning.

    Looking forward to hearing how things are going. And, yes, you can DO this!!! emoticon

    Maybe join the daily fitbit challenges will help. One right thing leads to another right thing.

    Definitely do stick with it. This is a great community. Like any new neighborhood, it can take a while to settle in and find the friends you are most compatible with - the ones who share your interests and understand where you're coming from. The good news is, there are 20K-30K new members a WEEK, and you're bound to find LOTS of friends here! :) Glad to have you on my SparkTeam, too.

    Glad that you're recognizing what's happening and resolving to make a change. So many of us are here, on FB, on Connect, it's just a matter of learning the ins and outs of the different socia media metworks. By the way you inspired me to buy black & white polka dot shorts for vacation!

    Once I start down that slippery slope I find it oh so hard to get a grip again. Just have to dig in your heels and do it! Have a good weekend and a better September!

    We know what to do.... it's just that doing it can be hard sometimes. And once we let some slack in those reins, it is hard to pull back when we should . You are ready now. You have always been successful with your boot camps and when you really put your mind to to, so I KNOW you will be successful. Keep it going.
