Well it is now June 24. I am so happy with how I was able to meet my goals and with what a perfect wedding and honeymoon I had. I started in January at 205 and ended on June 12 at 167! I did gain a couple pounds on the honeymoon but I'm back on track. I worked very hard to earn points to buy the spark goodie Dream Wedding and I did it. 10,000 points. That was a LOT of work and wore me out but it did help me reach goals and I did have a real dream wedding! Now I am going to work to stay between 1700 and 1800 calories a day and workout at least 45 minutes a day the rest of my life. Eventually I expect to reach 125 pounds and maintain that since 1760 calories are required to maintain that weight. But this way the pressure is off to obtain goals by a certain date and I can focus on a permanent lifestyle change and develop consistency. I saved a lot of articles during my quest to lose for the wedding and I am going to read those because I learned the articles keep me motivated and keep reminding me of how important it is for my good health, to manage my weight.
Thank you to all my spark friends who have supported me along my journey and thank you, God, for helping me reach goals and find this wonderful man I'm married to now.
