4th year Sparkversary!
Sunday, July 08, 2012
Four years ago July 5th was my Independence Day! I was so afraid of failure! I was overwhelmed! Reading some of the articles on nutrition and I was going to say fitness but I wasn't even thinking that far ahead, anyway back to nutrition, I thought maybe I could just do a few of the things they suggest without making any BIG changes. I didn't want to upset the proverbial apple cart with my sister (Thoms1). I just wanted to see if I could do something! I needed some kind of success to help me move forward. I tracked my nutrition for a couple of weeks before making any changes. Then it was like what NOW!! That is when Becky started going to the Web Site and also reading the articles. We put our heads together and tried different things.
Back to that Fitness thing! The end of July was looming upon us and Becky said we should really start exercising! HA! Like that was going to happen! I hated sweat especially if it was mine! I would get terrible headaches from anything involving exercise. What I discovered later on was that I needed to be hydrated! What a little water won't cure! Now I look on each drop of sweat as a little drop of fat leaving my body! Isn't that a pretty picture! If I only knew who to thank for sending me that email referring me to Sparkpeople.com! Of course I deleted it without reading it. However, the word Sparkpeople caught my attention and I went back into my deleted file and clicked on it. Never did think about going back to the email to read the entire thing. It was the free part that gave me the freedom to fill out the membership form. As they say the rest is history! 165 lbs lost!!!! OOOPS!! Deposited somewhere that no one will ever locate again!!!! HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!!
