Weights Of Christmases Past...

Thursday, December 20, 2012

It is no secret that I have been having a rough time lately, so I won't be going into that... but as a sort of motivational tool I decided to take a look at weights of Christmases past. I have been one of those people that have been and off of Spark for years, and while in some ways it is frustrating that I have yo yo-ed a lot, it is beneficial to be able to look back and have a record of everything.

emoticon 12.19.10: 259 lbs
emoticon 12.25.09: 260 lbs

This is very important for me to see and it reminds me that this time next year I want to be even lower. This chart really sums up my journey from 2009 until now. What a roller coaster.

So despite everything it, just reminds me that I'm going to continue to take this one day at a time, and continue on a downward trend. emoticon

    Great job. I know how it is you're up one year and down the next but all that yo-yoing is behind you. I think a 26 pound loss for a year is a good goal. Of course it's even better if you lose more. But as we all know Murphy's Law rears it's ugly head from time to time so I think 26 pounds allows for some slip ups. Ideally I think a pound a week but I want to be realistic and if you do achieve that then great. Good Luck.

I've subscribed to your blog to witness your progress and for you to inspire me.
