50+ lbs gone - FINALLY!

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Talk about a slow loser. emoticon
I began using Spark in June 2009. This morning, I finally got down 50 lbs - actually 51.2 lbs.
It's been a long road, but I think I'm learning some things in the process.
I lost only 15 of it in 2011, but actually gained and lost and gained and lost - until I finally figured out how to keep it off.

The last 6 weeks, I've really been doing well with healthy eating and lost another 11 lbs. Now I just need to keep up the routines! WooHoo!

    Way to go! It's way better to go slowly and lose slowly and be doing it right versus losing quickly and turning around in a few months or even years and putting it right back on with interest. Be super proud of yourself. Have a wonderful day! God bless!

    Slow and steady.... Aesop was right!

I'm also losing very slowly. I know I could accelerate it by cutting here and there, but then I'd be living a lifestyle that I couldn't maintain for the rest of my life.

And it sounds like you've hit on the right idea. This is a long-term process, not a short-term project. Permanent change takes a while to master, but once you do, you can put that part of your life on cruise control and just watch the weight go away.
