December & Beyond

Sunday, December 02, 2012

I actually lost a pound last month.

Are you impressed?

Probably not but it's a loss and I have been either maintaining or plateau-ing, depending on how you look at it, for a very long time, so for me, it's kind of impressive.

Now, here we are in another holiday month. Can I lose another pound? That would be nice. I changed my ticker a while ago to reflect fitness minutes instead of pounds lost & by changing my focus, I got the scale to move. So, we'll see how it goes. Getting the fitness minutes in is a challenge enough for this month.

Since I'm thinking about things like this right now, I am aware that I am fast approaching my Sparkiversary. I started this journey the end of January 2009. Hard to believe that it'll be four years the end of the upcoming January. In those four years, I lost weight. I've kept it off. I have changed the way I think about food, exercise and myself. Oh, and I have become aware that I am now usually able to estimate my size....LOL. Twice in the past month, I slipped a pair of jeans off a rack, took them into the dressing room and was happy with the fit! That, my friends is pretty amazing since I used to take a range of sizes in and often came out without one item fitting. Of course part of that is related to the clothing manufacturers but I had NO idea what size I was so the biggest issue was mine. It's been a great four years!

I think I will spend the month of December thinking about the future. What's on the horizon?

    We joined SP at the same time, so four years for me as well. And I think we've known each other since then.

    Hey, I'm always impressed with a pound lost. Until recently all I could manage to do was GAIN them! What's on the horizon? Hard to tell with you, but I'm sure it will be interesting!

    I think you definitely deserve a emoticon for a pound gone. It's harder as we're older & so close to our goals. Interesting idea on tracking fitness on your tracker. It will be interesting to see how that plays out for you.
