9 Month (Sort Of) Spark-A-Versary!
Sunday, December 23, 2012
So the reason for the "sort of" is because I have been on and off of this site since 2009. My weight chart in the last blog showed the roller coaster that has been my weight loss journey. From losing 40 pounds and gaining it back, losing 30 pounds and gaining it back and so on (from the end of 09 through 11). March 20 of 2012 I started Spark yet again, but this time I have stuck with it and I have no plans on stopping. I went from 262 to 212 during this 9 months, but am currently back up to 217ish.
I am so proud that I am still here and I am still trying. Despite a recent 5ish pound gain, I am still here and I am still pushing forward. For the first time in years I am confident that my 5 pound gain isn't going to spiral on to gaining back all of my lost weight.
I am thankful for the great Spark Friends I have, without such a great support system I don't think I'd still be here, fighting to get to my goal. I have firm plans in place for the rest of the month to prevent any further gains, and I am very much looking forward to the New Year and I am hoping to push super hard and make my 2013 my GOAL YEAR! I want to reach 180 pounds, declare victory
(cuz that sounds awesome, doesn't it?!), and then possibly see about pushing on to 170.
But that is just a glance into the future, and for right now I am just focused on the week ahead and the month of January, and I look forward to a Spark filled year with all of you!
