Day 68 Check In...
- 185.5 - Woohoo!!! New low weight! Only .5 down from last week, but at least I get to report a small loss to my starfish team instead of a gain! I am .5 pounds away from 60 pounds lost forever!!!
Exercise - I played a around a little on my hula hoop and jump rope tonight, but was too tired to get very far, so we're going to count that as a 0 today. I'll do better tomorrow...promise!

Had a great day today with DD and her special friend from her class! We went to CiCi's pizza where I limited myself to 1 piece of pizze (no crust) and a salad with lite dressing. I have not had pizza in 8 months, and to tell you the truth, it didn't really taste that great today. I guess your tastes really do change!
We then when to Build A Bear and the kids had a great time picking out their bear and making their wishes!
We are planning to have DD's party next weekend, so we went by the skating rink to get it set up and the kids decided they wanted to skate, so they spent the rest of the afternoon skating!
Next, was dinner at mother in law's house, then home. I am completely wiped out!!!
Today is my 8 month Sparkversary! In looking back over the last several months, it is hard to imagine all the changes that have taken place! Here are just a few off the top of my head!
~ #1 goal was to lower my cholesterol -
It was dangerously high when I started this 8 months ago. Now it is back within the normal range and my cardiologist is thrilled! (259 to 195)
~ #2 goal was to lose weight. Although I have not reached my healthy weight, I have lost 60 pounds from my heaviest weight and am well on my way to healthy goal.
~ I have gone from a size 24W to a 16 regular! I can actually shop in the ladies department! No more plus size for me!
~ Starting off, I could barely walk around the block. Now, since starting SparkPeople,I have participated in 4 5k's!
~ SparkFriends! I have met some amazing people on this site! I originally joined to track my food. I never dreamed the support I would find here from such wonderful people! Turns out, that has been the secret to my success! I need the support of others who share in the same goals! We have invested time in each other's lives and genuinely care about each other! I am excited to share this journey to health with you, my friends!
~ Food - I have virtually cut out all junk food from my life! What was once a daily staple rarely makes an appearance any more!
~ Water - went from drinking very little water to over 8 glasses a day!
There are countless others, but I am getting really sleepy and this is getting really long, so I'll end it here! Suffice it to say, I have totally turned my life around in these 8 months! One of the biggest changes is inside of me. I now have hope where there once was none! I can do this! We can do this!
Size 24 - 245 pounds
Size 16 - 186 pounds
Have a great night! Never ever, ever give up!!!
