When I started with SP back in April, I was so fired up to live a healthy and better life. I ended up losing 11 pounds and felt great. What kept me going was all the encouragement and support I received from this great community. As time went on, I took my eye off the prize and let the stresses of this life weigh me down and my weight went up. I continued to encourage others but didn’t take some of that for myself. I feel like I’m on the outside looking in. I even considered canceling my account with SP, as I haven’t been taking care of myself as I should be. I gave it thought and decided no, I will stick with this, because I deserve to be good to myself and I’ve also grown to care for all of you. It brings me joy to read of your success and I pray for your continued success and also pray when times are hard for you. The enemy of my soul would want me to give up and give into failure. I will take this opportunity to get up, dust off and begin again with one foot in front of the other. I may not move as quickly as I’d like, but moving forward is a win. I’m 56 years old and if I don’t do it now, then when. This is a wonderful community full of caring people and I want to continue to be a part of all the ups, downs, laughter and tears. As a child I was taught to stifle how I feel and that my feelings didn’t matter. I’m learning that I need to let others know when I’m struggling and in need of support. So here I go and beginning again. May God Bless each and everyone here on your journey. Thank you for listening.
