Okay, Keep Going!

Friday, September 30, 2011

Okay, 6 lbs down: while it's not a lot to write home about, I'll celebrate it as step #124 in this journey. It's a positive move toward my goal of getting healthier! Just adding the daily exercise seems to make so much difference to my metabolism, and I am LOVING the gym & especially the runner training! I'm also loving the changes in my waist, belly, & hips - those favorite pants of mine are now in the Goodwill stack.

My eating habits are changing a little, just to get my daily calorie count up to the SP calorie minimum. I thought at the beginning that I wasn't going to bother with the food tracker much because it makes me feel like I'm obsessing over the food - which I DON'T think is healthy- but after tinkering with it a bit, I'm liking the knowledge it gives me, and I'm not obsessing too much. I'll play that one by ear, as I go. So many Sparkers & Spark Friends have gone on about it's benefits, I could hardly ignore it. And I did lose 6 lbs! emoticon The main difference in my diet is that I'm eating more, and more often.

Overall, I'm excited & happy that the scale showed ANY progress, and October: Here I Come! Next month is going to be GREAT!

A woman who is re-discovering herself..and discovering things about herself...she's a runner!!! and loves the gym emoticon
Doesn't it feel amazing emoticon This knowledge, this power?
Peeling back the layers, and discovering this side of yourself?

    hurray for you! I'm with you on the weight thing. It comes off so slowly for me. My children (who are all quite thin and athletic) tell me I'm building muscle and it doesn't matter. And they are right, aren't they.

But to get rid of a pair of pants. That is major victory

Congratulations girl!
