Hello my dearest friends!
Today is my 9 month SparkVersary! Woohoo! It's unfortunate that today, of all days, is my weigh in day...& I'm UP 1.4 lbs! But no fear! After my one hour walk this morning, I weighed exactly 1 lb less! Go figure! So, in actuality...I'm only up .4 lbs! Laughing....
Don't ya just hate when that happens!
Anyway, I'm not fretting! I'm just getting back to basics! 'Cause I know when I do so...I feel in control & see immediate results! So, it's back to measuring & weighing EVERYTHING I put in my mouth! And it's back to tracking ALL that I eat! I'll continue to drink the water, & walk/jog every day! I've been eating all the right stuff...so I'll continue my focus on healthy eating!
Woohoo! Go me!
Now, I thought I'd emphasize what's been going RIGHT! And how SparkPeople has vastly improved my life! I also want to give credit, where credit is due! I'm so very grateful for all of you, my precious Spark friends! You've all made it possible for me to "stay the course" & remain accountable! And of course, your words of wisdom, the kind words of support & encouragement has remained "the wind beneath my wings"! Without your love & friendship...all things would not be possible! I'm eternally grateful for all the continued support as I further pursue my quest for better health & wellness! Your presence in my Sparklife is truly a gift! I offer to you my heart & friendship in return! May we accomplish all we've set out to do...together!
WHAT I'VE GAINED THESE LAST 9 MONTHS IS...
SELF CONFIDENCE! I feel I'm soaring in flight w/a sense of pride & accomplishment!
ATTITUDE! I'm seeing the glass as half full & I have a CAN DO attitude!
CONTROL! I control what I put in my mouth & what I do w/my body!
FREEDOM! To be myself!
ROUTINE! I walk/jog everyday & complete ST 3x a week!
TRUST! In myself! I'm able to give myself support & encouragement!
WHAT I'VE LOST IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT! I'VE LOST...
SIXTY POUNDS! Now, THAT'S incredible!
USELESS worry & negative thinking!
CONSTRAINTS! There's absolutely NO limits to what I can achieve!
TAKING diabetes medication! I'm OFF the Metformin! Woohoo!
I still have some ways to go before I reach my weight loss goal! And even though I don't see myself reaching my initial weight goal of 150 lbs by June 2011...I feel I've done pretty well my friends! And I must say, I feel pretty darn good at the weight I'm at right now! My clothes fit well! I think I look good! I believe that's all that's important!
Now, as I look forward to celebrating my 1 year SparkVersay...I officially revise my weight goal to 155 lbs & intend to reach it by August 11, 2011! That gives me 3 months to lose 15 lbs! that's 5 lbs per month!
I CAN do it! I know I CAN! With your help my friends! With your help! I also want to be more accountable & plan to blog a little everyday, so as to remain on task! I'll keep it short & sweet, I promise! Just wanting to stay connected & on target each day!
Alright now! On your marks, get set! Go...! And I'm off!
Catch me if you can!
