My 1st week

Sunday, August 14, 2011

This week has been amazing! I am so glad that I joined!

In the past week:

I have rode my bike 3 miles
I have walked a total of 11 miles
I have followed my calories
I have not felt like I have deprived myself of anything
Half way through the week I had already lost 4.5 pounds
I have started drinking water
I have tracked all the food that has entered my mouth
I have motivation that I have never had before in my life!
I have gained support from my mom, kids, boyfriend, and friends
I have started to feel more energy on a daily basis
I have been smoking less the more I exercise
I have learned the ins and outs of
I have learned never to give up
I have learned that with hard work I can do this!
I have learned that the weight loss surgery recommended by my surgeon is not for me

I will keep going until I lose it all, because I am a fighter and I want this more than I have ever wanted it before!

    I am not kidding when I say this............when I got to the part about you learning that weight loss surgery is not for you, I got tears in my eyes.

You are awesome!!! This site is an amazing place that once you find, and if you stick with it, can help to keep you on the right track. I have received SO much love and support over the last few months while I've been here, ESPECIALLY when I had to put my beloved cat down a month ago. Without the love of my spark friends, that experience would have been much harder than it already was. Spark gave me the place to write it all feelings, struggles, and grief...and through that came healing.

I wish you the best of luck in this. I know that you can do it!!!!!
