Today I weighed in at 173.8 lbs. When I joined Spark back in June, I had estimated my weight at 175. When I actually weighed myself 3 weeks later, after exercising and eating much better, I weighed 178. It really got me down for a couple of days, and I felt like I would never even see the 160's, much less a goal of 135!!!
Today I really feel like I am finally on my way as I look at my ticker which has a current weight that is LESS than my starting. It feels good and I know that I would not have been able to do it without the help of Spark People.
Particularly Tara (TAW196) and the AWESOME July w/ Jillian Challenge she created, the WONDERFUL team I am on - the Rock Stars -, and the individual friendships that have grown from that team.
I truly appreciate this resource, and the time and effort everyone puts into it. It would just be another ineffective calorie counting, blah message board site if it wasn't for the people on here and their feisty, winning spirit!
Thanks everyone! I feel like I've finally made it from the gate to the plane, and I'm lifting off!
