Wow...this Spark thing is working!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

So...I have been following everything I have been reading on Spark! Guess what??? I have already lost 6 lbs. Yes...I realize it is practically nothing...but for me...it's HUGE! And so quickly! I seriously thought I was doomed....forever to be stuck in this fat body...to never lose this awful weight. So...as I was saying....this is soooo working! Yay!

I got up this morning, looked at the scale and with both dogs staring at me...I hopped on! I couldn't believe my eyes! Of course I couldn't go blab this accomplishment to everyone...because it is NOT a huge defeat...but I can state my little accomplishment on here, as that is my goal! Because so many of you are working for the same goal!

Why is this working now???? Is it because I have finally decided to grow up and take my health seriously? I have no idea. But eating right is really not as hard as I thought it would be. I found a TON of very yummy recipes through Spark! Wow....I cannot believe how many recipes could be so healthy. Thank you Spark people for submitting such yummy choices!

I will say however, I am still NOT a fan of exercising. I think maybe I would be a little more so, if my asthma was better under control. But every time I begin to really get into some sort of exercise, my lungs feel like they are going to collapse. But...I have NOT given up. I just take short breaks to do nebulizer treatments! Then....back to what ever physical activity I was doing. I have found that my 8 yr. old son and I enjoy dancing together...we dance to...Ke$ha and Psy. We attempt to do the Gangnam Style dance...but failed. At any rate...we were still moving our butts! emoticon

    Six pounds is a big deal~! emoticon

As for exercise and asthma, keep checking in with hints and support on the WOWA team. I know for me, taking a few puffs on my inhaler *before* I exercise helps me _during_ the exercise.

Thanks for the inspiration~! emoticon

    Congrats on the weight loss!! And it sounds like the reason why it's different this time is because you've made the decision to do it instead of just saying you'll do try to do it.
