Today I weighed in at 151.4 lbs, 26.7% Body Fat, with a BMI of 24.5. I haven't been in the "normal" range since 1992!
I'm not much into blogging anymore, but felt I had to mark this HUGE milestone in my weight loss journey. Actually, after having completed "The Spark" yesterday, I'm inclined to say that this journey has been much more about bettering my life than simply about weight loss.
My focus is still on getting to that magical, yet now not so elusive, number on the scale, but not nearly as much as it was not so long ago. I'm on my third 90-day run of P90X Lean, plus I walk/jog almost every day. Wednesday night I signed up for a weekly 1-hour ZUMBA class with my friends - WHAT A BLAST! I am eating extremely well, tracking everything here on SparkPeople at least 5 days per week. Even on vacation, I am now careful of what I eat and drink.
My feet are much better now, by the way. The swelling has finally disappeared and so has my excuse for not exercising. Life is good!
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the compliments I've been receiving. My husband certainly appreciates my new found enthusiasm (and libido!) Also, I can now honestly say I am the best role model I can be to my two girls with regards to exercise and nutrition. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the best gift anyone can give themselves!
I have passed "The Spark" onto my brother, who is facing several crises in his personal life. I hope he takes the time to read it. I want him to be as happy and fulfilled as I am today.
