Almost 9 weeks

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Having started this journey toward a healthier me almost 9 weeks ago, I find myself both looking back and looking forward. The past 8 weeks have been filled with new experiences- trying new foods, new exercises, making new friends. I am definately feeling better-physically, emotionally and mentally. I'm taking time to take care of myself. Parts of this new lifestyle are easy and enjoyable- eating better, walking, even exercising. I have struggled with not losing pounds- my once a week weigh in can send me into a meltdown. Thank goodness for my tape measure showing results, and thank goodness for my 2 (daily) sparkbuddies. As for looking forward, taking time for reflection over the past 2 months has started me towards another journey regarding work. I am feeling more as though I can do anything I put my mind to, and not as though I need to be a reflection of how other people in my life see me. About time, I say!

163 pounds
Hips-41.5 argh


April 2nd- 12 days on sparkpeople

I 'm glad I found SP. I'm eating healthier, definately getting ALOT more exercise, and feeling mentally better as well. It took a couple of days on SP, but now have found at least one good online buddy that's really helping me with motivation. Also, through spreading the word around, have 2 friends that have joined. I've discovered that I am more out of shape than I thought, do have some emotional eating habits, and have admitted that the scales in the Dr. office were not "over by 10 lbs". My jeans already fit slightly better!

    Good job! It's great to see you using the resources here (it will pay off big time!) and you'll be at goal weight before you know it! Keep it up; you're doing great!

    Great news!! I base a lot more on how my clothes feel than what the scale reads. It does take awhile for SP and the whole diet and weight loss thing to feel comfortable. So, glad you're starting to see results!
Take care,

    It is much more fun to walk with someone else. So glad you found some buddies! My neighbor and I walk every day when we can get out. Now we are into doing 5K walk/run races. So fun!
Best wishes and happy stepping!
