Need to keep up with grandkids.

02/11/11 Now I'm 36 pounds lighter since starting my weight loss journey on August 6, 2010; 24 of that since I joined Sparkpeople in late September, 2010. My six month goal was to lose 26 pounds by February 6 and I missed that by just 2 pounds. That's good enough for me.

Need to keep up with grandkids.

02/11/11 Now I'm 36 pounds lighter since starting my weight loss journey on August 6, 2010; 24 of that since I joined Sparkpeople in late September, 2010. My six month goal was to lose 26 pounds by February 6 and I missed that by just 2 pounds. That's good enough for me.

Now I've reset my ticker to show my starting weight with Sparkpeople and my goal weight which I hope to meet within the next six months. I'm slowing down my expectations in the hope that it will make it easier to maintain the new weight once I get there; and I'm trying really hard to make exercise part of my daily life. I've only been exercising since Jan. but I know I need to do it if I am going to maintain a good weight without "dieting". If my daughter and I reach our goals by August we are going to the Hershey Spa and bathe in chocolate!

Personal Information:
I lost 12.5 pounds before I found SparkPeople. I had laser gum surgery (Lanape) and was on 3 weeks of liquid/soft food beginning August 6. It was a great incentive to get me going on a weight loss plan. But I am so happy to have found this site, which is FREE. I am somewhat addicted to it.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. This journey has been incredible and Spark Friends and the community were such an important part of it. Posting a blog touting a 50 lb. weight loss was something I used to only dream of. Thank you for being there as my dream came true! Spark on!
Have a fabulous day!!

Thank you for taking the time to read and leave a message on my blog. I found it a hard blog to write as it rather laid me bare!! However I felt that, indeed I hoped that my honesty might help to rekindle the Spark in some and give hope to others!!
The reaction to the blog has been overwhelming.
Why overwhelming you might ask? Because I don’t believe that I am doing anything out of the ordinary!! I hope that the over-all message that you took away from that blog is one of hope – that if I can do it – you can do it too!! Its not an impossible dream – it is something that anyone and everyone can achieve. You can read more on this in my short “Open a few doors “ blog that I posted as a follow up.
Again, thank you for spending the time to read it.
Hugs
