Joining Spark Coach has been wonderful for me. A lot of my Spark friends have been missing in action, lately ~ and I, myself, have not been blogging or commenting on blogs or doing much interacting, lately. I think everyone is just sick and tired of winter and are feeling 'blah'. Thank God, spring is so close.
No matter how crappy I have felt, I have still gone to Spark Coach every day and I really feel that is what has kept me motivated. I have encountered a few 'slippery slopes' and made a few mistakes ~ but Spark Coach has always brought me back to reality and my goals and kept me accountable. I'm pretty sure that without it, I would have given up and caved in by now.
I have finished the Spark Diet and the Plateau Busting programs and am now doing the Consistency & Motivation program. I still get very frustrated with the program some days because I would like the program to have videos EVERY day and not text ~ but, all in all, it has been a great tool and has kept me going. It is full of motivation and has great tips and information.
On March 1, I have been on Spark People and Spark Coach for 4 months exactly ~ and I have lost 17 lbs. Which is great ~ however, if someone would have told me that I would ONLY have lost 17 lbs in 4 months, I would have said "Are you kidding me? I am NOT going on a diet to ONLY lose 17 lbs in that long a time." My thinking has changed tremendously since then.
Today, I am proud of my accomplishment, even though I would like to be losing faster. I am DOING this and plan to continue until I have lost ALL my extra weight. Thanks Spark Coach!
