I have been Sparking since January 18 so am about 6 weeks away from my one year anniversary. I want to lose 20 pounds. Not much and it feels very silly to me to worry about 20 pounds when I read blogs by people who have lost 100's or want to lose 100's. Those are the people I admire and want to support.
so here I am figuring out where I stand right now.
I have 7 pounds to lose with Christmas in the middle. It might be more since I don't weigh in until Wednesday.
I have learned a lot here. I have learned that life is life and it is to be enjoyed every day. I have learned to exercise, even in small spurts helps. I have learned that support here is true support. I have learned to track what I eat and what I do for exercise. I have learned where I need to be calorie wise to lose weight.
So why is it so hard to lose these last 7 pounds? I have said before that I think I sabotage myself because I have never been able to maintain before and I am not sure I will be able to this time either. Yet, I have stayed around 150, give or take a couple of pounds for months now.
I have lost, on average, a little over a pound per month. People say when you lose slow, the weight tends to stay off because you have learned new ways to eat. This is not a pity party blog. This is a what do I need to do to lose the last 7 pounds blog.
It is an I am being silly over 7 pounds.
This is a thanks for listening blog.
Now I am off to do my Quick Fire Challenge for the day.
