Thank you @The Awesome A Team 2021 Spring 5% Challenge

Thursday, April 22, 2021

I woke up this morning a bit blah emoticon Yesterday was one of 2 days this month I had a full on binge. We lost our mother last year and my sisters and I had a disagreement about the estate. I always read/heard about families fighting this like this but never thought it would happen to us.
Long story short, I woke up feeling bloated and sad and saw that I had SP mail. It was from the Awesome A’s! Not only did I win a weekly badge for tracking nutrition (which was tough to do yesterday) and exercise, I was the recipient of the Awesome A of the Day letter. I cried.

This team has encouraged me daily to stay the course. I often pass on a less healthy snack because I don’t want to track it. I walk around my living room because I post my steps there everyday and I want to hit the 10k mark.

Even if I didn’t lose weight, the encouragement that I’ve received from the members and leaders of this team has helped me live a healthier lifestyle. Thank you all!

    So sorry about your loss. I lost my mom almost 2 years ago and the anniversary of her death always makes me sad. It does not help when family members fight. I am so glad that you are a part of the emoticon A team!!! emoticon emoticon

    That's amazing that the Challenge is making a difference -wonderful. I lost my Mum nearly 4 years ago and my Dad just last year. I've been stunned by the in fighting in the family - it's been worse than the actual bereavements themselves in many ways. I've distanced myself from my siblings as it's the only sane thing to do given everything that has happened - and that was another form of bereavement. You stick with it Trish - in amongst all this turmoil is you and you deserve the best.
