A Girl, a Book and Eight Months of Maintenance

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

I got some great news today. About a month ago, I was contacted by the editor of dailySpark and SparkRecipes asking if she could use parts of a blog I had written in an upcoming Spark book. Well, not only are they using that, but they're also going to use some other quotes from me based on some of the email conversations we had. I think it's pretty cool that the lessons I've learned in maintenance will potentially be able to help lots of other people at various points in their weight loss and maintenance journeys. The book's scheduled to come out on May 7, 2013 and you can take a peek here if you're interested:

51695281&sr=1-1-catcorr&ke
ywords=spark+solution+romi
ne&tag=babyfitcom-20


In another news, I'm coming up on my eight-month maintenance anniversary and thought it would be cool to post some maintenance progress pictures to show how I'm doing. The first picture is when I hit goal at the beginning of March. The second is from June and the third is from today.







I lost about ten more pounds from the first to the second photo but am pretty much at the same weight in the second and third. It's pretty cool that I've been able to keep things so level for this long. I'm well on my way to becoming a five percenter!

    Tina,

That is fantastic news. Funny thing, I was thinking recently that some of your blogs should be featured in a magazine. Glad to see that this is coming to fruition!!
