Today I have been on Spark for 11 months. I joined on August 19 2009 and took that first step of starting a new lifestyle. The time seems to have gone by both slow and fast at the same time if that makes any sense. You feel like the time goes by so slow when you are shooting for a goal to lose pounds. Yet when you look back on the total time it goes by so fast.
I really did not expect it to take this long for me to lose my weight I thought it would take maybe 6 months at the longest, boy was I wrong. But i did have a lot of weight to lose, plus I have lost a lot of weight also. I know for sure 75 pounds is not something to just sneeze at. That is a lot of fat when you look at it in a huge lump sum and It is gone from my body for good I pray. I still am not sure if I am going to be able to keep this up for a lifetime, I still do not trust myself or my body and self control. I have done this before in my life and just gained even more weight back. I pray this lifestyle is permanent and that I have taken control for good but i still do not have the faith in myself. I am hoping this site will help me to stick to it. They say it takes at least another year to make sure you are not going to fall back into the old routine again.
In thirty days I will have one year here, but it means I have one more year to go to have faith in myself and this new lifestyle.
Thank you for all your support and strength and encouragement the last 11 months, I truly believe I could not have done this without this site and you great friends supporting me along the way.
