5th Spark Anniversary --- but the results are not good!
Friday, August 05, 2011
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.............
