Newbies and my dearest SPARK

To the newbies and dear SP

Hi .I have been a member of SP since jan 2013.I joined sp following a goggle search i made in utter desperation after years of vicious cycles of losing and gaining.I per se never did any crash diet with respect to nutrition but I had bouts of heavy exercises including 2-3 hours of aerobics plus 4km walk every day… which ofcourse took off oodles of weight; sometimes even to the tune of 8kg a month.I have been through this over and over again and everytime managed to gain it back the same or even a few kilos plus.
I kept telling myself that next time I want to lose weight I just have to do the same so it is not going to be a big deal.As time passed I realized that I didn’t have the motivation to even repeat my own time-tested solution towards weight loss.That got me into thinking.”why is it that I don’t want to do it again? There was no diet included,then why cant I just get myself to exercise the same way and end up losing 8+ kgs again?”!!
It was time that I realized that mistreating your body doesn’t always mean putting it through some horrific diet.It can even be beating your body to pulp with rigorous and unnatural exercise regime.That is exactly what I did and that is exactly why my mind dismisses the first sign of another such episode.
When I joined sp I was full of awe ,having gone through the success stories of so many members.But I always I had my lingering doubts..”can I do what they did? “. “oh probably all of them are for just ads and there are other tactics they used to lose that weight” ..” are any of them real?”…..
These were just some of the absurd doubts I had.. for me it sounds absurd right now..but when I joined it just pumped the ‘fact’ that “sp could be just another gimmick!!!!!!!!!

Today I want to apologise for all those absurd doubts I had on sp…
SP does work..realllllllly it does!!!!!!

I haven’t lost any weight but in measurements I have gone far further.I am a happy person not just outside,but from inside.I feel soo much happier ,energetic and full of life.
I don’t think I have been happier than today,ever before.

Recently I went for a trip to one of my dream places and had the best time of my life… walking through snow,skeing and gleeing ;)

Once I returned home it was time to see the snaps we had clicked. From experience many of u might know how it feels when I say “I dread looking at my snaps”.

Every time I saw my snaps all I could see was a huge pile with double chin and not even the faintest look of joy on face.its always the harsh realization of how fat I have become.and naturally followed by 2-3 days of intense ‘dieting’ , exercising and bouts of crying hugging my husband.

This time was different!!!!!!
I saw the snaps and I was amazed… I looked so beautiful and happy. Added by the backdrop of snow clad Kashmir, the pictures were PERFECT!!
I don’t think in a long while I have used that adjective for any snap that I was included in.This time I didn’t just have one but so many of the PERFECT snaps!

It is not my weight that made the difference.It is how I felt from inside……

All of us join SP with the goal of losing weight. It not only helps you lose but helps you become happy about yourself;be content with yourself! It springs back life into your living deadbody filled with disgust and hatred towards your body.Even I refused to accept that I was hating myself before.no matter how many people tried to tell me otherwise. But today where I stand, I know it was indeed hatred that I had for myself,before!
I dont know how or what SP did but it did!!!
Today keeping track of calorie is no more a task.no matter what I eat or how much I eat, my body takes in only the prescribed calories . I always stay within the range .
So now that I have passed the first step of sticking to calorie range I guess its time to boost my weight loss! Yes!! And for the first time ITS NOT A START OVER,ITS ANOTHER MILESTONE I AM GOING TO EMBARK UPON………… thank god!

My love to everyone behind SP
