8 week reflection.

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Wow, who knew 8 weeks could fly by so fast! It seems like it should be longer. These 8 weeks have been a wonderful journey that I'm glad to have taken. I had my ups and downs in life that caused me to slack some, but I did meet my goals!
As of this morning, I hit my first milestone and have found myself at 275! It's been at least 2 years since I've been around this point. Since joining Sparkpeople., I have now lost about 17 pounds! It's amazing! I feel amazing and I feel accomplished. When I started 8 weeks ago I was winded by the time I got to the top of a flight of stairs and I felt horrible. Now I find myself doing pretty good at the top of a flight of stairs and wanting to do another flight and I feel amazing. My clothes are fitting better and I find I have more energy, besides the heat and sun sapping it out of me while I'm working since I'm in and out so much.
I have gone down a size and am back into a size 24 pants! I'm looking forward to getting down into a size 22. I can't wait for that goal.

    Congratulations. I lost almost 50 pounds last year, and I know how great it feels. I very happy to read about your progress and what a difference it is making for you. :-)

    Just keep tracking evey day and stay in your daily calorie range consistently. Your body will do the rest of the work for you!
