Facing the numbers...


Tuesday, July 15, 2008


I used to weigh 413 pounds. That's the most I ever weighed in my entire life. Now I weigh 373 pounds...forty pounds gone! Before I would have NEVER admitted to ANYONE how much I actually weigh....and honestly I feel that facing the numbers..is one important part of going through this process. Now I see that I ACTUALLY have put a small dent in the HUGE picture of this journey. My dream would be to weigh 200..No I take that back 199lbs! That number is 174pounds away! It sounds so shocking to say..and I know that there are people in the world that have lost more than what I have to lose..and now I seek them for encouragement. Today, I walked 1.17 miles on the treadmill at 2.5MPH...it took 30 minutes...Also I swam and did some water exercises. I came home exhausted..and took a nap...but I feel like I deserved it. So...just to let you all know..that this is my life's goal to get down to a healthy weight..and any positive words right now would be greatly appreciated. Much love to you all!! emoticon

    Facing the numbers,in my opinion, is half the battle!! Getting real about what we are really doing... and where we let ourselves get to... is empowering. Because when we get real about it, we have to do something about it. And you my dear... you are doing something about it!!

Rock on my Sister!! LIke PumkinFace... I am so proud of you!!

Keep up the good work!!

    You can absolutely have your dream. You can do it. You lost so much already, and it's simply a matter of keeping on doing what you know works. Tell yourself all the time how great you are going to feel, and how much energy you are going to have.

And stay here on spark! Explore. There are so many great articles, and I like reading everyone's blogs and the threads ... it keeps my head on straight.

You are beautiful, Ingrid. Can you IMAGINE yourself in 40 more pounds???!!! Wow.

Have a fantastic week!
