It Works! Losing Weight During the Holidaze!


Friday, January 04, 2013

I don't know why I am surprised, but I actually lost weight during the holidays this year.

I lost 0.5 lb between Xmas and New Year's (while at my in-laws) and another 0.5 lb New Year's week. My goal is 0.5 per week and this is the first weight I lost lost in a very long time!

I shouldn't be surprised at all. I did what I know works:

I logged into Spark People every day and logged food, fitness, read motivating stories and message boards. I even posted once or twice. Spark People became my first and last activity of the day instead of Facebook.

I logged into Spark Coach which has become a big help to me. I'm not sure if it is the content or the logging in, but I'm not going to question it!

I worked out - despite having a rotator cuff injury and doing intense physical therapy...I found out I still have two working legs and one working arm. I even went to the gym once while at my in-laws in another state. I found new types of exercise (water walking was one).

I learned that my normal calorie count is at the high end of the range I need to lose weight. That led to the realization that I need to clock more fitness minutes to make this work.

Finally, my friend joined SP this week and it feels good to have a buddy I see almost every day. Thank you Leah!

I'm looking forward to great energy and health and getting strong and fit again this year!
