Eight weeks ago I started the Fall 5% Challenge on the Beautiful Butterflies Team. I did not lose 5% of my weight. All in all, I did not lose anything. I did not gain either!!! I went the 8 weeks going down and up and up and down and so forth but ended up the same weight I had been when I started the challenge, 255 pounds.
Now for the truth. I started SparkPeople on January 7 , 2008 at 255 pounds. Yes, I am the same weight I was back in 2008. My experience before SparkPeople had been to keep gaining each year. Right now I am at the same weight as almost 6 years ago. That's better than gaining weight. Right?
So how have I done in 2013? On December 17, 2012 when I returned from the States including what was termed a catastrophic knee/leg injury, I weighed 263. Today, Dec. 7, 2013, I weigh 255 pounds so I have lost 8 pounds this year!!
1. I did not gain weight during the Fall 5% Challenge.
2. I lost 8 pounds this year, 2013.
3. I just finished a nice 10 day Staycation (vacation) at home. I restarted work yesterday by teaching my Friday Bible study.
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your encouragement to me.
