I know that I have only been at this for a week...but I have met every single one of my goals and am still feeling good!
It is really nice to know that if/when I start to falter, I have somewhere to go and ask for help.
My journey has amazed me so far, as well as my DH. He says I am in a much better mood, and he attributed it to his finding full time work. I told him that no, you've had a full time job for a couple of weeks now. It's the Spark Journey that I'm on that is making the difference! I am feeling hopeful! And that's been a very long time in the making.
I used to be a very optimistic person, and had a passion for life. I saw everyday as an adventure, and when difficulties came up I simply geared up and fought the battle. Something happened to me along the way, and now I am getting the old Self back!
And though I am NOT focusing on weight loss, I am celebrating a FIVE POUND weight loss!!!!! I know that I won't continue to lose that much at one time in the future, and I know that I will be tempted to fall off the nutrition and fitness tracking wagon, but I also know that I can get back on track.
I love this Spark Journey much more than the Weight Watchers one-I'm not hungry and grouchy and feeling awful all the time. Instead of weekly meetings, I can go every day to one, more if needed, and then pick which one I want to "attend!" in the way of articles, blogs, or emails.
Yes, I am a happy Spark People!!
