Hello Dear Spark Friends. I've been MIA for the last few months and there have only been sightings of me. So let me catch you up.
Last year I began a quest to get myself healthy. I knew the way to health was through weight loss. The many friends I made here gave me the strength to walk the new road. If I wanted to eat something when I knew I wasn't hungry I could come here and put it out there. When I was having successes, I could come here and put it out there. We'd work through it and celebrate too.
I'm more than halfway to my goal. I only have another 85 pounds to go! I know that I will reach that goal weight this year. I've continued to change my ideas about eating. Just last night I made all the goodies we planned to eat. I replaced some of the items with lower fat varieties and we ate like queens and kings. No one complained and I stayed within my points with little effort. So if I could make it through a celebration with all that food, I know I can handle the day-to-day eating with my knew habits.
Now I'd like to share my before and after photos (so far):
I can even wear horizontal stripes now!!
Let's all make this our year to reach our goals. We're all worth it.
