Three months

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I didn't even realize I have been on SP for three months now. I can't believe what a difference this has made in my life.

When I started losing weight back in December 2011, I weighed 221 pounds. When I found SP, I was 213. Although I was able to lose 8 pounds on my own, I know I wouldn't have been able to stick to it. Three months later, I am down to 183 (as of this morning). I am amazed at the transformation, and what a difference 38 pounds makes.

Not only has the weight loss made a difference on me physically, but it has also been so beneficially to my state of mind. Staying heavy made me feel safe. Past traumas and depression led to my lack of motivation and self-hatred. Overcoming hating myself has been like a weight lifted off of me. I feel like a different person even through my present struggles in my personal life. My new found sense of self has helped me stay on track through this difficult time.

I am so grateful to SP and to all my sparkfriends who have supported my progress. I wish I could meet you all in person to give you hugs and thanks!! I am also grateful for the support of my husband through all of this. He has been my number one supporter, and I don't think he even knows how much I appreciate him.

    I really love SP too! I find the testimonies SO motivating. The trackers are so helpful! I feel SO empowered and motivated. I told a friend the other day how proud I am of myself. The old me wouldve quit 30 days in of not seeing results I wanted. But thanks to SP I really understand this is a journey and victory is only a hill away. :) Thanks for being so honest and inspiring!
