FINALLY!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, June 02, 2013

At the beginning of April, I rejoined MyFitnessPal in the hopes of losing some weight before a wedding in July. When I first stepped on the scale, I felt sick. I had gained back 22 pounds in the 4 months since moving back to the states after 3 months in Ireland. I started working out like crazy, stuck to my calorie goal and ... nothing. In fact, I gained weight (most likely water weight but still).

Two weeks ago, my mom suggested I switch to a new site: SparkPeople. I was apprehensive at first because it felt like giving up. Then I thought, what's the worst that could happen? Well, since then, I've watched the numbers on the scale move back down and today for the first time, I am down from that original number at the beginning of April! Only a pound and I still have a long way to go, but that is tons better than weeks of going nowhere!

  I've been a member for a log time but never used it. I'm getting serious now and am finding many of the articles helpful and the groups.

    It is very supportive and amazingly mostly free of internet trolls. I call it my safe place. Gain or lose, people here stick it out with you.

    So glad you found sparkpeople...I have been here over 3 years now...lost over 100 pounds...put on about 20 pounds again that I need to get off. It is a constant battle.
I really love the spark groups here..you can find anything that interests you or even create your own spark group. People have been so supportive to me and I love being able to help others.
I am proud of your weight loss...keep up the good work. If you need any help with things here just let me know!
Hugs,
Sarah
