10th January 2015

I've been with SP for 5 years - to start with I found this site such a fantastic help, and with just little steps at a time, I lost over 40lb and felt great.

However, I am not sure where it all went wrong, but I've been really struggling for a while now, and have undone all my hard work. Lost my motivation to exercise regularly, and find it hard to stick to the right food choices. When I have done things "right" for a few weeks, I've not seen the results I want and give up all too quickly!

During this time my sister was taken really ill and we so nearly lost her. She was left with lifetime debilitating injuries and it has been hard to come to terms with and supporting her.

My sister has such incredible determination and has made amazing progress, that it puts my weight issues in perspective and makes me realise what a simple thing getting back on track should be compared to the hurdles she is managing to conquer. She is showing such determination I feel so bad that I am not.

It's a New Year and I am determined to get back on track and slowly lose this weight, giving myself a 9 month goal to get back to my goal weight. It will be hard, but I am determined.

Using the tricks I have learned along the way - drinking plenty of water, portion sizes, eating clean (no refined sugar and little processed food), eating slowly and getting a daily walk and exercise, I WILL DO THIS!

I really need to make the most of the Winter 5% Challenge I have just joined and use it to motivate me to get back on track. as weight leader I will be encouraging others and want to set a good example.
