good morning to all my spark friends. first off let my start by saying i'm up almost half a pound this week but down one inch. so it evens out somewhere. i'm not upset, heck no, this is wonderful. just because the scales say one thing and the tape says another is fine with me. i'm feeling good, i'm running, i'm eating right(most of the time) and i make much better choices than i did nine months ago.
nine months i've been on spark and all i wanted to lose was 33lbs. i'm still trying to lose that weight but now i only have 16.4 lbs to go. so i'm about half way. half way in nine months is a bit much for anyone, but i'm taking it slow, enjoying the scenery and the ride along the way.
so next time your thinking man i should be farther by now, stop, you have already surpassed most of your dreams at this point. some of us start off fast and end really quick, or just end, or better yet, we continue slow and steady and don't give up. that is me. i'm slow and steady but i won't give in or up. this is a challenge daily for me and old habits, but when i choose the good over the bad, get up at 5:30 to get in my walk before work, i've already won most of the battles and with this kind of power i can win this war.
god bless you all and have a wonderful spark day. michelle.
