Week 23: Day 1
Monday, May 07, 2012
No, I'm not really back. At least, I don't think so, but I wanted to check in since I just celebrated my 5 month Sparkiversary last Saturday. I said when I stopped daily blogging that I was going on hiatus to pause, reflect on, and regroup my efforts. Here's a bit of the process...
I mentioned this morning that I "suspected" I've lost 10 pounds since Sparking. Yes, I've not confirmed the number since I'm not Sparking by the scale; I weigh occasionally so I have an idea of what's gone. It's just very plain to all that I'm "smaller" and that I probably should move down a pants size. Yay!!
Accurate numbers to start with and daily consistency--with no mistakes!!--have allowed me to lose weight. I'm horrified, in all honesty, that I'm allowed no "goofs." I've come in under my daily calorie range every single day. You'll notice that I dropped "only" 2 pounds per month. Back in the day that never would have been acceptable--too slow! Now it's the only way that I can lose weight. Wow. Truly, a revelation.
I don't diet and I don't have any "forbidden" foods. It's all portion control and consistent habits.
I am a genuine turtle of weight loss! I suspect I'll lose a few more pounds but I'm hoping now to tone myself up even more. Will I post a bikini shot? It's doubtful.
So, that's my update! As always, love and success to us all!
