ONE-derland... How sweet it is!


Sunday, October 04, 2009

My SparkPeople friends and my husband are absolutely right! It will happen and I will reach my goals! It just takes a proper diet, exercise and patience.

I have had the most stubborn scale. It wouldn't budge for 3 week, no matter what I did. It was stuck on 200.6 pounds.

I really got serious in early August and started riding my bike all over the residential neighborhoods in my area. I started out riding just a mile or two a day and I've gradually increased this distance to closer to 10 miles, 5 days per week. Even with all the extra exercise, the scale wouldn't move.

As many of my supporters know, I whined a lot and got very frustrated. Thanks to all of you that encouraged me to just keep doing the work and the payoff would come. Yesterday I got on the scale and saw that magic number I haven't seen in at least a decade, maybe even 2 decades. I weighed in at 198.8 pounds yesterday and today at 199.2.

It's official, I'm in ONE-derland and I'm celebrating! emoticon
