My Journey #23 -- Finally, I can say 100 pounds total lost
Monday, June 04, 2012
Well, it's June 4th and I got weighed today and tipped the scales at 250.2 pounds. If you are in "Onederland", it might seem like a big number, but when you used to weigh right at 350 pounds, it is a milestone. I even weighed as much as 360 pounds at one time but when I joined Spark People, I was down to around 350 so have always listed that as my starting weight.
I'm on two Spark teams that I am participating in -- STOP team and LEMON team -- and am glad that their new challenges for the summer are beginning June 11 and June 13. I got a little slack while recuperating from my surgery and have been at a plateau where I've gained and lost the same pounds over and over again. All that is going to change because I'd love to see myself down to 199 pounds by December 31st. We'll see what happens the rest of the year.
This week I'm going to have to change my ticker as when I joined Spark People in 2008 I had set it for a 100 pound lost going from 350 to 250. Now that I have reached my first goal, I"ll have to change it to go from 250 down to 200. That will be my next milestone.
Good luck to all my friends in these two upcoming challenges. I wish you all the best. And good luck to all my other Spark folks who may be reading this. Just remember you CAN DO IT. I trusted God to help me and He did. May the Lord bless and keep you.
