Keep up the great work!

WHIMSICALSPRITE, you rock! I was just about where you are now when I began this trip down Healthy Lifestyle Lane. I know everyone is different, but I will share with you what I did to succeed. In April 2011 I was "sparked" by a daily Sparkpeople email. (I had been reading them steadily for three years before something just hit me.)

Long story short, I did ten consecutive monthlong Official Sparkpeople Bootcamp Challenges and religiously used my Nutrition Tracker the way it was intended (consistently not exceeding daily bottom line ranges for calories, carbs, fat, and protein). Results: Eye-popping, head-turning, jaw-dropping! Not only does Sparkpeople help you lose weight, it makes you GLOW. I swear, it is a life changing deal, this place.

Spark On!

Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

I finally FINALLY reached 169 lbs. I'm 1 pound away from being within the "Healthy" BMI category for my weight/height.

I've been constantly watching my calorie range/intake and exercise for almost 12 weeks. I didn't feel like I was seeing "enough" results, until I realized I've been losing almost a pound each week.

I'm so proud of myself, but I'm nowhere near finished. I need to reevaluate my goals and set some goals for strength... and continue to make this journey a lasting one.
