Excited about my Results!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

I've been rather impatient lately about weight loss. I've been good about not weighing myself every week, because my weight fluctuates too much so I weigh once a month. Well I weighed in this week, and while I wasn't upset I thought there would have been more weight loss. Especially since I've been pushing myself more and really have been feeling a lot better, and my clothes are loosening. So I decided to take measurements, and oh boy I was nervous. I didn't want to lose confidence if there wasn't a change, and it hasn't been a month since my last measurements. Well guess what...I've lost 1.5 inches at my waist and 1 inch around my hips. I was so excited, I couldn't stop smiling.

This morning I tried on my size 16 jeans and while still tight and not ready for public eyes, I could button and zip. I feel very confident that in one more month those pants will be comfortably worn. Yeah for small success!!

This feels great, its not just the results, but its also about the way I am thinking and motivating myself. I'm not giving in to the negative thoughts and self-criticism, I'm finding myself making the decision to turn the negative to a positive. This feels great! I wish I could pass this on to everyone who feels defeated - because that is how I have felt for the past two years. I wish i would have committed to the Spark sooner, but am so happy I have now!
Big THANKS to Spark for ginving me the tools to move forward
