OK, it’s time for a little self-aggrandizement. This is a watershed day and week for me and just wanted to share.
Today, Sunday, I crossed into Level 17 by going over 50,000 points. OK, no big deal right? It is for me as I really enjoy the fruits of my labors. Now I can look forward to the next level.
More important that that is on the 11th, I will celebrate my 2 year SPARKversary
. I have progressed from overweight to obese to morbidly obese all of my adult life and at 75 years old, I had accepted that this was my “normal”.
I can't remember exactly how I first heard of SparkPeople, but I thank God that I did. Now, I am no longer even considered overweight and what a great feeling that is. Words can't describe the joy of getting into a 34 inch pant for the first time since Jr. High. Going into a store and buying a Regular size shirt instead of a 3X. Seeing proof for the first time that I really did have ribs. I CAN SEE THEM.
Years ago the great comedian Jackie Gleason lost a whole bunch of weight and another comedian, probably Don Rikels said that when Jackie was standing and looked down he saw something that he had not seen before –HIS FEET. Man, can I relate to that.
HOO rah for SP.
