I have lost a total of 49 pounds since I started this journey over 2 years ago! What's even more amazing is that the last 20 pounds was with SparkPeople, I have only been sparking for about 6 months!
So while my loss has felt slow at times, it's actually been quite fast in comparison to what it was before I started sparking.
As a reminder as to how far I've come I changed my ticker to the beginning weight of where I was originally and gave myself a I Lost 20 Pounds With SP award.
I know that I shouldn't place too much of an emphasis on the numbers but I can't help but be excited, I weighed in today at 133, I haven't been in the 130's since the late 90's.
What's more is that I have never been an athlete, I was always the last to be picked to be on a team and here I am proving myself to be actually physically fit. I went from a lifetime of not wanting to do any physical exercise to craving it and looking at every household and outside chore as an opportunity to build more muscle and/or get more movement.
I think I'm going to buy a SP shirt today!
Thank you Julie for sparking Cookie who sparked me!!!
