Nearing Goal

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

I'm now within 2 lbs of reaching goal..I can't believe it!! Not that my journey and challenge is completely over, the time for me to begin maintenance now starts...I'm excited and scared..I've never met this challenge before and here I am, nearly a year later and 102 lbs gone...I feel exhilarated, happy and very proud of myself for sticking to itÖ

It's interesting that I'm still literally having fun researching new recipes or working over my old ones to make them healthier...I look for different ways to get my daily workouts in, as I find myself bored with the same things...I even have a bike and I plan to start hiking this spring simply because I know I have the energy to do this and itís something Iíve wanted to doÖ

However, without my sweet caring husband, my family, my friends and Sparks, I donít think this goal would have been accomplished. Iím very blessed to have so many wonderful things in my life that got me through this challengeÖNow, itís my turn to give backÖWhen I find someone who needs encouragement and support, Iíll be there..This journey isnít easy and I believe trying to do it alone is so much more difficult without love and friendshipÖ

In two weeks, Iím going shopping..Iíve now gone from a size 22 to an 8ÖThink Itís time donít you???

With much appreciation, thank you all!!
