Today, Aug. 5, is my 4th anniversary with SparkPeople. Time to measure my annual weight loss...ho hum.....and see the progression.....yawn..........
Here are the numbers:
2009 194.5 (Big oops!)
For that track record, it seems that I am pretty darn good at losing about 5 - 6 lbs. a year! After 4 years of Sparking, I have lost a grand total of 24 lbs.
Let's take a look at the past year: Do I have more energy? NO. Can I tell any difference in the way my clothes are fitting? NO. Can I see any difference at all from last August to now? Not really.
I know I should be happy. I am losing the weight and keeping it off pretty well, although I do backslide a bit now and then. But I need to lose at least 50 more pounds, so I have to do something to make the weight come off at a faster rate. When I compare myself to others, I am envious that others can lose in one month what takes me a year to lose!
Oh well. Yay me! Another year, a few more tiny pounds gone towards a huge goal. Will I be more successful next year? We'll see.............
