Well, today is my goal date, June 7, 2009. My goal was to be at 190 pounds by today. I started the beginning of the year at 222. Joined SparkPeople in late January at 219. I'm now at 192, two pounds short of my goal, for a total loss of 30 pounds in 5 months. I'll take that.
I would have made the goal, but I got a little less disciplined the last month. I slipped a little on the workouts, but a little more on the diet. I was still losing weight, but only a couple of pounds per month.
I still have some work to do though. I don't think I got in 5 fruits and veggies once in that time. I did 3 a lot. So still a work in progress. I also still have a few other diet issues, but my diet is hugely improved from what it was when I was gaining all my weight.
I want to thank everyone on my teams at SparkPeople for encouraging me and helping me to get this far. Without your help, it would have been much more difficult, if not impossible, to come this far in such a short time.
I usually don't blog, but I felt like I needed to write something on my goal date. Good luck to all my fellow Sparkers and keep up the great work! I guess I have to go think of some more goals now.
