New Year, New Start

Sunday, January 04, 2009

Last year I missed my goal by 15 pounds. I went from 215 to 178, last year. Then I gained back 2 pounds when I started a new job in December. I went from working retail to having a desk job, so the lack of activity at my job lead to the 2 pound gain. But 2 pounds I can live with. I know I can lose it along with more.
So now that a new year has started I am setting my goal again. When I look back at my pictures of Christmas 2007 and compare them with the pictures of Christmas 2008, I see a difference. I know I felt better about myself this year than I did before. I am happy that I lost as much weight as I did last year.
I have set my goal this year at another 30 pounds. I have learned many healthy habits on Sparkpeople that will help me to continue to lose the extra pounds.
I am looking forward to the summer again and wearing shorts. Maybe I'll even wear a bathing suit this summer!


I won't reach my goal, but it's ok

Saturday, July 05, 2008

It's July and my goal was to be 165 pounds by the end of this month. I won't make it because I have been stuck at 180 pounds for awhile now. But it's ok. I feel better about myself now than I did in January when I joined Sparkpeople.
I have lost 35 pounds so that is an accomplishment for me. I have also lost 7 inches from my waist and gone down 4 sizes in my clothes. I know I have turned some my fat into muscle which weighs more.
I no longer avoid mirrors and I am not wearing loose clothing to hide in anymore. I even noticed the other day that my shadow looks better than before. I remember looking down at my shadow when I was out walking and it looked like a huge blob. Now I can see curves in my shadow. It may sound strange but I noticed that it looks better so it makes me feel better about myself. Who would have thought that looking at your shadow could make you feel better?

    Your positivity is amazing, congratulations on losing 35lbs. I'm sure you'll reach your target weight soon.
I had to giggle at your shadow comment, my best friend (who is also my exercise buddy) has noticed her shadow is slimmer and curvier now, it has helped put a spring in her step as well.
