It's Been a Long Time...

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

A long time since I posted a blog update here in SparkPeople.

I feel kinda weird posting one now, but here I go….

I am finding myself being drawn back to the beginning. I started SP in 2009 and with the help of SP I was able to lose 50 pounds. That 50 pound loss sparked an amazing journey for me, and I've gone on to do some incredible things I never thought I'd do. But recently I've hit a road block, a plateau in my journey that has really been tough to get through. And I started wondering if MAYBE…coming back to where I began would help give me the push and the support I'm needing to break through and get back on track.

I do well with fitness. I do well with nutrition (most days - I struggle with food addiction but I keep my triggers as far away as I can from me.) But what I am lacking is support and companionship from people in similar areas of their journey that can push me to do better, push me to push harder. I need that motivation that I get from others. The competitive nature in me needs PEOPLE who will push me to keep going, dig deeper, work harder, focus better. So I am hoping by coming back to SP and joining a couple of SparkTeams, growing my support system and network of like minded people - that will give me the Spark I need to get off this plateau and out of this rut. I do not like complacency and there is always something that needs to be improved, so this rut that I am in, this plateau I find myself on…SUCKS! And I need to do something different, change things up, even if that means going back to where I began.

If you see this and can relate… Say Hello! And let's chat. Let's help each other. emoticon

    I'm HERE! I'm nudging, pushing (sometimes elbow-ing) to keep you going if needed today. I'm convinced that it's a tough, frustrating, rewarding, draining, challenging, wonder-filled roller coaster of a journey because it is worth it!

    And you are still on the ride. You haven't jumped off, which is so easy to do, right? Nope, you're white-knuckling it, and fighting for the prize.

    And I'm here! Helllllooooooooo : )

    I find that this journey can be very lonely in the real world, but those of us on SparkPeople are here to push each other on. Good for you for coming back!
