20,000-24,999 SparkPoints

So thrilled to lose 9 pounds in 9 weeks! Thank you, Spark People!

Saturday, March 12, 2011

After only 9 weeks, and 9 pounds, I can really tell the difference in my body. I am slimming down through the middle; AND the backside and "thunder thighs" are definitely shrinking.

What has worked for me are:

(1) the treadmill-- 3.5 miles a day most days at 2 mph;

(2) tracking everything single thing that goes in my mouth to avoid mindless eating. I am usually within my 1200 to 1500 calories per day, and I check the chart at the end of the day, while calories are still in reserve, to see if I need to add carbs, fats, or protein.

(3) 8 or 9 glasses of water per day--It really helps! Believe it, folks! Water has some magic, catalytic property that gets the weight off!

(4) Signing in at every day (actually several times a day) to enter my food and fitness, sign in with my teams, and read other pages/blogs.

Coming back to is so reinforcing! Great resources, great info., lots of inspiration. And gotta get those spark points.

And, to be honest, that is 9.4 pounds gone in 9.5 weeks! YES!!!!

THANK YOU, SPARKPEOPLE.COM! I have always been a weight-conscious person, and this is the first time I have found all the tools I need, all in one place, to get the weight off, and keep it off. I'm here for life!
