Wow!! 3 months at SparkPeople have really changed me

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, February 03, 2013

emoticon 3 months ago today I joined Spark People. In that time frame I have made alot of changes. I've lost 6.6 pounds I have went from 27.4% body fat to 25.5%. My BMI went from 26.1 to 25.1, 0.1 short of being at a healthy weight and no longer overweight. I joined Spark Coach and haven't missed a day. Telling myself I only have to workout 10 minutes a day has completely changed my mindset. My monthly fitness minutes were 822 minutes-Nov 2012, December 2012- 2667 minutes, January 2013 - 4493 minutes. I joined the January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge and The Better Sleep Challenge in January never missing a day. I discovered that even if I am eating and working out if my sleep is bad that week I have a weight gain. I have made sleep a priority. I bought a fitbit one which really shows how much I am moving and how I am sleeping. In the past 3 months I have logged in to Spark People 85/92 days. I am currently on a 35 day fitness streak. I have never exceeded my daily calorie range. If I want a certain food I plan it in to my day and eat lower calorie meals that day so I can enjoy without guilt. I have met many great people on Sparkpeople who motivate me everyday. Coach Nicole's videos are amazing and I have all of her dvds. The old me would have been frustrated I haven't reached my goal weight yet. but I only have 5,2 pounds to go and I know I will make it there and be able to maintain due to the support I am getting from Sparkpeople. emoticon

  I want to get a Fitbit too, using pedometer for now and tracking steps and miles. WOW, you certainly have a lot to celebrate and considering you are 3 months into your SparkLife, you have made amazing progress! Keep it up and give yourself a nice reward!

    You have found the way to do it. I find Spark Coach a great help too but I don't do as good with my daily calorie count as you do but I'm still working on it.

  You are such an inspiration for me. I am a new member and need to lose weight for my health. I have type 2 diabetes and RA, so losing weight is not only desirable but a must. Thank you for sharing your success.

  Way to go. I am so encouraged by your example! Your baby steps are steps I am going to try to incorporate in my days from now on too. I can at least do 10 minutes of exercise every day and try my best to sleep better also. I am a nursing student in an associate's program right now, and it is so tempting to pull all nighters to get my studing in. I am rethinking that right now.
Thank you again for your inspiration.
Hope all continues to go well for you.
God bless,

  Well done, very interesting about sleep, my weight loss is very slow, my eating is good and I have never exercised so much but my sleep is poor.
I wil make a better effort to get proper sleep and can't wait to have the same success as you emoticon
