Today, Aug. 5, is my 5th anniversary with SparkPeople. Time to measure my annual weight loss...ho hum.....and see the progression.....yawn..........
Here are the numbers:
2009 194.5 (Big oops!)
This year's weigh-in was depressing. It marks the first year that I haven't lost any weight at all.
Let's take a look at the past year: Do I have more energy? NO. Can I tell any difference in the way my clothes are fitting? NO. Can I see any difference at all from last August to now? Well, after months of physiotheraphy, my kneecaps are back in alignment and I can at least walk with less pain and ride my bicycle again.
I know I should be happy. I have lost weight and kept it off pretty well, although I do backslide a bit now and then. But I need to lose at least 50 more pounds, so I have to do something to make the weight come off at a faster rate. When I compare myself to others, I am envious that others can lose in one month what takes me a year to lose!
Oh well. Yay me! Another year to try and lose a few more tiny pounds towards a huge goal. Will I be more successful next year? We'll see.............
