Another week on my journey.

Sunday, April 14, 2013

So today's weigh in showed no loss, no gain. Before SP I would have been terribly disappointed after having a good week of healthy eating and fitness. But today I just accepted reality. I am more than that number on the scale.
I am 11 pounds from my ultimate (new) goal with the dreaded last 10 pounds right around the corner.
Today I switched my Spark Coach program to "plateau busting". So for the next 4 weeks I will listen to new tips and ideas. I really like the Spark Coach... I'm sure I will be tweaking my plan yet again. I don't mind tweaking, after all nothing works the same forever. And with spring weather coming our way.....soon, I hope. I will be able to add more out door walking and gardening to my plan.
The joy of this journey is in my blood, so to speak, and I am not going to ever give up on the "new" me the keeps emerging.
Hope everyone has a happy, healthy Sunday. Thanks for stopping by. HUGS!

    Hi Barb...trying to catch up. Sorry I am so late responding to this blog. You know that scale doesn't always behave, no matter what we do. At times I've gained when I've been so good. But you know if you stick to the plan the dreaded scale will know who's boss and finally give in.

You have racked up so many "non scale victories" and have to be proud of all you have accomplished. Being 11 pounds from your new goal is fantastic and I hope and pray to be able to say that too someday. You are healthier, stronger and more in control of your life and that is worth more than the number on the scale.

I am thinking of you and sending you a great big hug for eating healthy, sticking to the plan and tweaking it a bit and never giving up. ((HUGS))

    Barb, you are so right in what you've said here. I am so proud of you for embracing right where you are - right in this moment. That is a difficult thing for most of us to do. With that mindset firmly in place, I don't think you'll need to "dread" those last 10 pounds. Remember, the mind is a very powerful tool! You just demonstrated it to yourself! If you believe it will be hard, it will most likely be so. Why not believe that it will be easier than you thought? . . .
I know you will do it!

    Oh, so close. But do not dread the last 10 pounds. With the arrival of spring yard work and more time outside, you may surprise yourself. Chin up. You will be that success story and the winner that you already are. HUGS!

    Howdy!

Great blog! And you are so much more than a number on a scale! I will have to do the SparkCoach and see if it can help motivate me more.

Keep pushing! It will happen - you are doing fabulous!

Have a great week!

    I just did the 4 week plateau busting from spark coach and managed to lose another pound. It is a much better journey with wonderful friends cheering you on so keep on pushing! You can do it. Just think about how everyday is making you a healthier person regardless of that number on the scale! Tweak away, you will get there.

    We always have to tweak our program. Hopefully spring is around the corner. I was at the flea market yesterday and it was still a bit nippy but I enjoyed the walk with Sadie. I know she liked being out. She slept all afternoon. The past couple days the sun has been playing hide and seek.

    I often find that I benefit from changing things up a bit. You will attain that new goal soon.
