Yes, I made GOAL!!!!!!!!!!
Today is my one year anniversary at SP and I so wanted to make goal.
On this day last year, I was depressed and in tears. I pulled out my winter clothes and none of them fit. I stood in front of the mirror and looked myself in the face and said, "You have got to do something about this." So I thought I would start by joining this site and seeing what it was all about. And I was so impressed. I thought that I would start on eating healthy first. After losing the first 10 pounds, I decided I might lose another 10. After losing 30, I decided to start exercising on a regular basis.
I've lost 60 pounds during this year. And it was easy!
Now some might say 60 pounds in one year is not much; however, I did it by just eating sensibly and exercising moderately. I became best friends with the Motivation Articles, I learned that I could have a cheat day and jump right back on track. That was empowering in itself!
I'm a 54 year old woman that walks with a spring in her step. I even got on the trampoline with my family and laughed till it hurt last week!
Oh! And those clothes that were too little last year...they are too BIG. I'm having a grand time altering some of them and giving others away.
Thanks, SparkPeople for leading me to a healthy life. I have met many friends here that have helped with my journey.
