The "program" almost one year later...

Monday, September 24, 2012

I couldn't be more thrilled with this program! Since starting SparkPeople (just a few days shy of one year) I am now 81 pounds lighter and, being a 52 year old woman, never in my wildest dreams did I think that would be possible. My attitude about food, myself and life in general has changed drastically. I take joy in the daily small changes that have made such a difference.

In reading a few blogs, some people are disappointed with a weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week. Well, let me tell you, that one pound loss adds up to 52 pounds in the course of a year. Rejoice in that and stick with it!

    I never thought of only 1 pound a week being so important to appreciate! That they add up to 52 lbs a year? Hey, I can live with that!

    Wow! I just stumbled upon your blog. It caught my eye because I am celebrating my one year anniversary too! This sight has been an inspiration to me and a tool that I value to the point that I tell others to join! You are a woman my age that just described what my journey has lead to. Thank you for sharing and here's to good kudos that your remaining years will continue to bring you good health and great successes! I'd like to add you to my friends list so we can chat from time to time?
