First Cartwheel Since -50lbs!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, October 09, 2011

When I first joined SparkPeople a picture that motivated me was one of a fellow Sparker holding a 50lb bag of dog food in the store. She had blogged about how much it had weighed and how heavy it was even to pick up for the picture and how she was NEVER going to do that to herself again. I said to myself if I ever made my 50lb loss then I would do the same picture to remind myself.

The cartwheel was because I saw a Sparker do a cartwheel on video when his SparkFriend reached their goal. I love cartwheels. I said to myself if I ever made my goal I would vlog my first cartwheel after losing the weight (no matter how unrefined!) because I wanted to do them again and, let's face it, it's a CARTWHEEL!!!!!! Self-High-Five!

    That is truly an inspiration for someone like myself that has 451bs to go!.....It puts it somewhat in perspective when you
show the dog food. Personally I can barely lift my dog's 501b bags.

Have you got a plan in place to maintain this incredible loss?

    Congrats on reaching your goal! I love the idea of the picture and the cartwheel. I haven't done a cartwheel in i don't know how long. 50lbs is my weight loss goal. Hope you don't mind but I'm going to keep your ideas as my inspiration.

    Congratulations! I need to lose just over 50 lbs myself. I will remember the bag of dog food, for sure! (I have 2 big dogs.) You are SO right! It is hard for me to pick up that bag of dog food and yet I am carrying that extra weight on me! Thanks for the inspiration!

  Congratulations! Hopefully, I will be holding a 50lb bag of dog food soon. You are a great motivator. Dog food & cartwheels, what a great combo. You look & act like you have so much energy. I have gotten a little side tracked since Oct. However, you have really motivated me to get back on track. Reading your post is what I really needed. You have brightened my day & now I know that I must stay motivated in order to continue to lose & then maintain.

  Hey good job and keep up the good
work. Doing cartwheels are not the
easiest thing in the world to do.
I can't even do one. So keep
achieving your goals and you'll
come a long ways.

    emoticon emoticon Love that 50# bag! Makes you see what you have accomplished. BUT, 67% of people who lose weight will regain it all within ONE YEAR and of the others only 3% will keep it off for more than five years. Remember to weigh daily and make EACH day count for your new life.

  Thanks for the motivation! When I got the email with the newsletter and saw the topic of this blog, it motivated me to go try it myself before I even checked yours out! I've lost 48 pounds over the past year or so and it's been probably 10 years since I've done a cartwheel. At 43, I'm happy to say I did the cartwheel and didn't pull anything! emoticon
