Beyond Losing Weight
Saturday, December 15, 2012
Since I joined SparkCoach and recommitted myself to my weight loss program two and half weeks ago, I’ve experienced several positive changes beyond the 7.5 lbs I’ve dropped:
• I’m more organized. I’ve always had trouble developing routines.
However, I have developed a bedtime routine where I relax to 60 beat per
min music (the same as the resting heart – very soothing) as I review the
day and plan for tomorrow. Then brush teeth, clean face, take meds, spend
a few minutes picking up and turn out the lights.
• I’m more energetic. Exercising gives me a boost of energy
especially strength training.
• I’m happier. Exercising boosts my mood and I don’t feel depressed nearly
as often as I used to.
• I feel better and I feel satisfied most of the time not hungry most of the
time like I used to be, because my diet has balanced nutrition.
