I met my goal 4 days early on Dec 29, goal date was 1/1/12. I am now 100% lacto-ovo vegetarian. My new goal is to be 100% Vegan by 6/30/12, my 58th birthday.
I have learned a lot this year from all my SparkFriends, Teams and all the helpful articles on SparkPeople. I am truly thankful for SparkGuy for making all this available to us. I had already known about portion control, lowering fats, eating more veggies and fruit before discovering SP. Through reading "The Spark" and the various articles on SP that I learned that I would stay in the loose-gain-loose vicious circle unless I made a healthy lifestyle change.
I have gone from a size 16 down to a 12 since August 2011 when I joined SP. I'd like to get back to a 10 but 12 is okay. I am almost 60 and feel good about myself. Okay, there is that pooch in the tummy area that I would like to tighten. Now that my cast is off and my arm is almost pain-free I plan to join a local gym that has the equipment that I don't have room for in my house.
Here's to a great new year.
Wishing you all a very Blessed New Year!
