    Just checking in on you. I am back on Spark again. I can't ignore my weight problem anymore. I have gained back 40 lbs. of the 70 lbs. I lost.

    Hope you are doing well. Drop by my page and say "hi".

    Hey girlfriend! Checking in to see how you are doing. I don't know if you got my text message the other day. I used the phone number you gave me several months back.

    My phone number is on the cell phone "Spark goodie" message if you want to text me.

    I do want to work on losing 65 lbs. with you. I started tracking my food today and will do my exercise.

    I am trying to think positive. At least I am not starting this again back at 300 lbs. Plus, I have more stamina for exercise than I did before.

    Let's try and lose 5 lbs. by 4-30-13. I also have a goal of completing a 10K within 6 months.

    If we lose 10 lbs. a month we will reach our goal of losing 65 lbs. by November 1st!!!

    Let's get started today! WE CAN DO IT! WooHoo!

    Yes!!! Let's text once a day to encourage each other. I am desperate! I have gained 8 more pounds back!

    My poor food choices have left me feeling tired, depressed and craving more sugar and carbs which add to the problem/cycle.

    I need to stay in contact with someone else so I don't just hide and continue my path of self-destruction!I now need to lose 70 lbs. by 12/31/13 to reach my goal of being under 200 lbs. by 2014.

    It is still possible for me to do this but, time is ticking by and I don't want to be 300 lbs. again. If I don't get this addiction under control...I will be back where I started and I fear my depression will be more than I can bear.

    I am wearing my workout clothes now and plan to walk on my treadmill...there...I made a commitment to you to get up and walk today!

    I am also going to get a big bag and load it with all the sugary snacks and simple carbs I have in the pantry. I don't want any of it out in front of me any more! I have been in a sugar and carb induced coma for months now and I am sick of it!

    I appreciate your support more than you know. I have been drowning here....I get my head above water for a breath and sink back down. It is time for me to ask for a life preserver.

    I can't do this alone and I have to make effort to save myself because no one is going to come to my house and turn on my computer for me.

    I am going to save my own life by letting my Sparkfriends help me and in the process, I can help them save their lives as well.

    We CAN do this! Just sent you a text...Let's get going! WooHoo!

    p.s. I did the 5K race with a sore heel. I walked most of it and finished in 59 minutes. I ran at the end and hurt my heel again. I could hardly walk back to the car afterwards but, I was happy that I made the effort to go to the race and finish. It was my friend's first 5K and we are planning another one as soon as my foot heals. Next 5K I would like to run most of it and finish in 40 minutes or less.

    I am sooo sorry that I haven't been around to support you! I have been trying to deal with family drama and a foot injury. I turned to food instead of getting the support I needed.

    Now I am trying to heal physicaly and get my head back in the right mindset to lose weight.

    I am upset with myself to choosing to eat to deal with stress. I know that I am hurting myself but, I keep repeating this pattern.

    I hurt my heel doing Zumba three weeks ago and had to stop. Now I have also hurt my shoulder and I am in a lot of pain.

    I plan to do the 5K race on Saturday but, have not been able to train due to my heel. I don't know if I will be able to finish the race but, I am going to try anyway. I really wanted to be able to do my best but, now I just want to be able to finish it.

    I would like to get back to losing weight. I have a big goal this year of losing 65 lbs. I need to get going!

    I would like to get back to supporting each other on this journey. I don't want to keep giving up on myself. I know I can do this if I stay focused.

    I hope you are doing well. Texting may be a good way to keep connected even when I try to give up on myself by not logging on SP.
