Anniversary-One Year w/ Sparks!

Friday, February 15, 2013

Prior to joining Sparks, I had lost 20# and another 10# once I began tracking and exercising faithfully. The 10# was icing on the cake! ............. Oh! Did I say, "Cake?" emoticon .......... ok, so maybe a dollop of icing on the sugar free mini cupcake! There! emoticon .......

Heres' some of the stats to celebrate.
With a total of 30# gone ........... my clothes fit comfortably; no longer have straps and waistlines 'cinching' me and make cutting marks ........... (whew) emoticon
One year ago my cholesterol was recorded "high" and my physician told me I had better reduce or go on medication." ........... emoticon (no .... thanks)
My blood pressures is consistently staying in the 'perfect range' ......... (120/70)
(whereas, there were occasions when it was slightly hypertensive) ...........
I was experiencing knee pain when walking down steep stairs at work ...
That is completely gone now.
I rarely get colds OR headaches any longer ............ I believe my stress level is much lower and that my immune system is stronger.

A few months ago Sparks wrote a blog re: those scales and not getting discouraged as often they don't seem to want to budge, given all the work we do ......... (dont' we all know that one?)
So, they advised, "Judge by how your clothes are fitting ............ if they are looser and more comfortable ............. AND by comments/ compliments others pay you ......
For instance, on several occasions ........ I bumped into someone I had not seen in a while and they were like: emoticon OMG!!! You look so great!! Believe me, this can have an effect that even outweighs reduced numbers on the scale!

Bottom line is ............... Do what you enjoy .... and do it or a variety of things often ........ Rewards and payday always comes! Thanks Sparks ........ you are wonderful and so are All the terrific spark friends and members .......... Everyone has something to say ............. and I love hearing! emoticon (It's all good!)

3-2-13 One last thing ............
Today I joined Coach-Sparks & I have a really good feeling this is going to make a big difference! How nice to check in with someone daily who has an inspiring word and a plan! Will keep you posted! 2B
