Today is day 200 of my streak!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am celebrating today...200 days on track with eating and exercising!

Here is the perfect song for today...and I am challenging YOU to dance along with me! If you have health and mobility issues and can't get up, then do what you can, even if its just moving your arms. And if you CAN get up, then what are you waiting for? Be grateful that you are able to move your body, and just dance, dance, dance! You might look silly, but you'll burn a few extra calories!

My life has changed so much since I started my streak! Back then, everything hurt...all the time! I couldn't even get comfortable laying in bed, because my enormous stomach was always in the way. I couldn't lay comfortably on my stomach or even my side. And if I laid on my back, I had trouble breathing.

When I walked, I waddled and limped. I breathed hard with even the slightest exertion. I couldn't even cut my own toenails! That is VERY embarrassing to admit, but its the truth. I was so obese, I couldn't even take care of myself anymore.

But now I am so much healthier, and smaller. Sometimes I feel like an athlete! I am strong, and I know I am just going to keep getting stronger. I struggle with the 3 count pushups on my DDP Yoga workouts...but I am getting better and better! It hurts but I push through it, because I know that my struggles only strengthen me in the long run!

I am so happy for how far I've come in the past 200 days, and I'm excited to see where I will be 200 days from now. With God's help, and the support of my Spark friends, I will be at my goal weight then!

Now let's dance!

    Good job!
It does seem the more you do the easier it gets.
(a little easier anyways) challenging yourself keeping up the streaks is a fantastic way to do it!

    Congrats to you, Pixie, and thank you for giving this newer Sparker hope. I'm impressed by the honesty in these blogs and appreciate hearing about someone with a story similar to mine who is succeeding. I know we all write these things mainly for ourselves, but your words go out in the world from here and do others good. That's also no small achievement.

You go girl, and here's to the next streak!

    "With God's help" is a powerful statement. He has not given us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of....SELF DISCIPLINE. (see 1 Tim 1) You go, Girl!

    Yay! I totally danced with you! (You're right, that song is PERFECT for celebrating!) I also wanted to share that thanks to your 190 day blog, I've started an "on track" streak of my own! It's 14 days long, and I can't wait to get to 190 / 200 and see what my life looks like then! Thanks for sparking this sparker! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
