Well, today was my one year Spark Anniversary, and the whoosh never happened. So I made it to 49 pounds in a year, and not that nice, even, 50 pounds.
I'm not crying about it though! I'm really amazed at how well everything has gone. I don't think I ever really believed I could do it. I'm not sure I really believe that I've done it! pinch me?
I celebrated with a bunless burger and a diet coke!
Just also wanted to recognize so many of my great spark friends that have helped me along the way... inspired me, taught me how to make this a lifestyle change, encouraged me, advised me and kicked me in the a** when I needed it. Extra big hugs for Randy, Rachelle, Holly, Renee, Jackie, Lisa, Maria, Haarajot (wherever you are!) and anyone else I've forgotten. You guys are the best. xoxox

So my spark anniv. is April 8th, and i REALLY want to hit the 50 pound mark by then. I'm down to 175.0 today, so I only have 1.2 pounds to go until I'm in the 173's (I crop the decimal, so I consider myself at 173 regardless if its 173.8 or 173.0). That leaves me 24 days to lose 1.2 pounds. I think that is defintely do-able. SO CLOSE I CAN TASTE IT!
I already have plans to go out that night and celebrate! Probably with a big steak lol!
I did another virtual model today and put a bikini on her. I had to laugh because I don't think I look nearly as good as my virtual model. She looks great in a bikini. I imagine that I look like a pumpkin. I just don't see it when I look in the mirror. When will my self image catch up with the actual body size? I know I'm wearing 12's right now, but I think my mind still sees me in 16s. WEIRD!

So my ticker FINALLY moved 1 pound. Thats only 1lb for the ENTIRE month of February. I definitely started to stray from good eating habits. Too many frankenfoods! Too much Dreamfields. After a week of back to basics, I'm down a pound. So easy to stray into that frankenfood territory, but now that I know about my new love for Blue bunny ice cream, Dreamfields and Atkins bars, I know that I have to restrict myself.
Another nice side effect of this past week was a sudden ability / desire to get back to the gym. I had completely lost all motivation. Got to the gym 4 times this week! I don't think thats ever happened! lol
Also, my shnazzy bathroom scale that measures body fat finally has me below 30% (it says I am 29.7%). Still high, but really happy to be below 30%. I looked on wikipedia- one source says 30%+ is obese, and the other source says 32%+ is obese. The recommended range is 20-24%.
All in all, a great week. Feel like I am back in the groove!

Based on my August Blog Method, I have made the following preditions:

Jan 1: 176 (Actual = 179)

Time to recalculate! I now seem to be averaging 3 pounds a month...

June 1: 167
July 1: 164
August 1: 161

I'm finally home (after 2 weeks away on business and vacation), and I have tummy issues. Making myself some chicken soup.... with my shiratake noodles! :-) So good to be able to COOK for MYSELF!!!
Weighed in this morning, and I'm up a pound. Haven't updated my ticker in the hopes that its just water and TOM. I can't complain though!! 2 weeks of no tracking and travelling was a big challenge and I feel like I know how to live my life / follow my WOE indefinitely. Yes I had a few drinks and desserts while travelling, but in general I was able to eat low carb the whole time! What a confidence booster to know that I can do this, long term, without tracking, without SP (not that I want to ever leave SP!!!), and NOT go completely off the diet / gain tons. WooHoo :-))
and my SP bumper sticker came ! lol
