A New Chapter

Monday, April 11, 2011

A couple of years ago I logged my fitness and calories on Spark. I didn't make any friends or participate in any groups. I tried for a month and when the pounds didn't fly off me I decided that it was because I had some kind of medical problem. I gave up. I went to the doctor and they said they really couldn't find anything wrong with me. LOL So here I am again a couple years later. I have made some friends (I really do love you Twilight Challenge ladies!) :-) I have also noticed that the pounds come off me really slow. I have lost 9 pounds since 1/1/2011. HOWEVER... I am okay with that. I am also now "in the zone". I have stuck with it long enough to see that my energy levels are different at various weeks on my monthly cycle. Also, that if I truly track my food it makes a difference in the...uh... 'fudge factor". I have found that as I track my fitness in baby steps, the more baby steps I want to take. I do hope I can begin to see more pounds come off. On the other hand... my clothes have suddenly gotten comfortable. When my clothes are comfortable, I wanna go out and do more! Yesterday I noticed a hint of leg and calf muscle! Hmmm... maybe this is gonna work!

I am truly in awe of many of you fellow Sparkers! Your blogs, photos and post speak volumes to me.

Time to get off this computer and take my walk/run!!

I am glad to have you as a emoticon

Baby steps are very important. We are learning new habits and that takes time (especially when we had years of bad habits!). It's important for us to have in the healthy lifestyle journey. We will get to our destinations, but there is fun to be had along the way.
