Disappointed! But With Progress Noted!!
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Well, I went to my weigh in and measure yesterday. It was not all I had hoped it would be! I have lost another 3 pounds and 5 inches but thought it would be more. I suppose I have reached that awful plateau I have read about. Maybe I need to change my work outs to something different! I have added swimming to my workout since it has gotten so warm and I have a pool at home. My grandchildren add to the workout time in the pool as well. I am not going to let this get me down and will continue on my journey. It could have been worse I could have gained pounds and added inches!! I am still enjoying the improved me being down a total of 80 pounds since May of 2007! Since starting Spark I have lost a total of 51 pounds and "That Ain't Shabby" Actually I think it is progressing very well!! My goals are in sight and I am working on the down hill side of the equation. With the help of everyone I have met here I am able to see that it is possible for me to achieve my goal. It just may take a little longer than I had hoped. No more negative thoughts because that won't help anything. I should be proud of my accomplishments to date and strive to add to them!! I will push forward with my journey and goals. My diabetes glucose levels are better than ever, my cholesterol is no longer high, and I have been taken off many of the medications I was on prior to beginning this group. So many things are looking up!! Progress, Progress, Progress!!
