    Dee, continue to celebrate life and enjoy your new healthier lifestyle. One of my favorite passages that I like to model my life after are words from the Apostle Paul, "Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances, as this is God's will for you in Jesus Christ." (1 Thes 5: 16-18). Keep up the great work towards your goals. -- Evelyn

Gauging Success . . . .

Friday, July 31, 2009


I was just wondering how other Sparkpeople in my communities gauge their success with their healthier lifestyle? I have to admit I can't gauge my success by the numbers on the scale although that is how we define ourselves some times. We don't do it on purpose, that's just how our minds work. We see we can fit a size 2-4-6 & feel we have successfully won the weight loss battle only to find out, its just the beginning. So now you have maintain that weight without gaining it all back & more. I believe that is why I stopped weigh myself? I would get so distraught & reach for my favorite carb food red vines or go to Wendy's. Please let me know how you gauge success, please?

Thanks & Blessings! emoticon emoticon

    I am basing it on my abilty to climb the 3 flights of stairs to my apt w/o losing my breath, and playing soccer better. Also, eating right, for the first time I am tracking what I eat for healthy reasons, not some fad diet. So pretty much on knowing I am healthy and staying that way.

Though the scale going down and smaller cloths will be great as well I am sure. But my health is most important to me.

    Success for me is getting into my jeans and having them feel comfortable. Sure, size is always nice but feeling good about the way I feel is more important to me than a number. I like getting up in the morning a not having my back hurt the way it used to before I started to exercise on a more regular basis. (I'm sure the chiropractor helped a little.) I like knowing that I'm making healthier food decisions that will help me live longer. I like just being happier because I know I'm doing things that are good for me. That is success for me.

    Let's see now, I don't really know yet, I have about 20 lbs to loose even though I am happy where I am now. success for me was loosing 70 lbs and knowing when I gain 5-10 lbs I can take it back off and to know that 5-10 lbs will be the most I allow my self to gain. Success to me is to know what to do to loose weight and to DO IT. You can know what to do but not do it. I hit the scale everyday because I do the WII FIT body test and you know what, I have come to terms with it. I only record it and my body measurements once a month. What really works for me is that I have found what makes me happy, and that is being in a healthy, active, mite I say a much smaller body . emoticon So I think I success for me is to look at what I have done,how far I have come. I smile at all my hard work and were it has gotten me and the life lessons I have learned along the way. Success for me is to know that I am a better person for taking this journey and God has so Blessed me. emoticon

    I have forsaken the scale (for the time being) and use my clothes and how I feel as a guide. I was pretty attached to the scale and I was afraid I was becoming dependent on it as a barometer for my day.

I get on every now and then and see I've been maintaining without much effort on my part but I need to finish losing now. I'm mentally preparing to discipline myself to only step on the scale once a week...not 2-3 times a day.
