I've been sparking for almost 2 months now. I joined to loose 13 pounds. I've lost 4. That's about a half a pound a week. Am I disappointed? No, absolutely not. I wanted to lose weight because I had such a lack of energy. I thought it was because I was dragging those extra pounds around... that, and I didn't want to have to go out and buy new clothes because my summer clothes were too tight!
Even though the weight is coming off slowly, it IS coming off. I know the rest will come off if I just keep doing what I'm doing. I am eating healthier foods, drinking more water and moving more.
The results on the scale aren't monumental, but instead of slowly creeping up, it is slowly creeping down. I am okay with that. I am ecstatic about the amount of energy that I have now. I look for ways to move more. I feel so much better. Not only has my energy improved, but so has my mood. I am smiling big smiles like this ...
... instead of feeling all worn out at the end of the day, I am thinking about what all I can do before bedtime... like, perhaps get in a game of Wii bowling with my kids.
Of course, they love that!
I am planning menus, cooking breakfast and taking my lunch in order to insure that I have healthy choices to eat. My food bills, overall, have gone DOWN because I am not purchasing ready made or fast foods. And I am eating foods I enjoy more than the purchased foods, too!
I have made some new friends, especially on the Putting Foods Up Team, and look forward to seeing what they are up to every day. What a joy to have more positively focused people in my life!
I am thankful for SP and
I really, really do!
