Time to Find a New Toy

Friday, March 01, 2013

Put the yo-yo down and find a new toy!

That's how I feel today. Totally inspired and excited!!! I've been fighting the same 10 lbs for the past year, and thanks to the support of my SparkFriends I've finally crossed over and lost an actual pound!

On February 17th, I committed to my friend CATINCJ that I would track everything I ate and stick to my program and not weigh until March 1. Well, about 12 days later I did this and I lost 5.4 lbs total, taking me below my actual start weight.

No more up and down for me. I've seen what it can do in a material way and that's inspiration to keep me going on this path. I'm not one to reach out and leverage the communities as I should, but I highly recommend it. The kind words and motivation from someone who truly shares in your struggles and understands your frustration with the journey is the best friend to have. No one is here to judge or compete, we're all here to lift each other up and add a little positivity to someone's day.

Thank you SparkFriends. I think instead of a yo-yo I'm going to find a hula-hoop!!

    My response to your "straight talk" blog is, "Right on, sister!" :) emoticon

    You always really cut to the chase, and I think you've spoken for most (or all) of us when you describe the frustration AND the elation on this walk of ours. I wish you all success fighting the last of those 10 pounds, as well as everything else for which you strive. Thank you for sharing your joy!

    Congratulations on your loss! I find that a strong community is incredibly helpful to me. I also think that weighing in less often is helpful. Daily is too emotional for some folks. But once a week or once every two weeks seems to help me more.
