Have lost 100 pounds!


Monday, July 08, 2013

I still can't believe it. I weighed myself this morning and have lost 102.5 pounds! I still have more weight to lose but to be honest, I didn't think I would ever be able to achieve this. Having lost weight before, I always stopped before hitting that magic number. And now it's happened.
If I think back to how I was feeling before starting on SP and how I feel now, what a world of difference. Physically I am able to do so many things I didn't think possible. My energy level is up. I don't get sick very often. Emotionally I am still wrapping my brain around this. I am so, so happy and relieved the weight is off. Part of me still can't believe it.
I guess what I have finally learned is that with focus, determination, tracking and lots of support from spark friends that anything is possible. You just have to get up each day and eat healthy and exercise or walk. I walk alot! Make better choices at restaurants and the grocery store. It feels like a different mind set. I do not in any way feel deprived. If I want something bad enough, I eat it now. But in small amounts and not every day. Funny thing is, alot of my binge foods I don't want anymore. At a certain point, your body gets used to eating healthy foods regularly and actually wants that. So simple. Wish I could have figured this out years ago. But I think I truly get it now and this is a real lifestyle change, not a diet.
Thank you my spark friends for supporting me with the ups and the downs of this journey. And lets just keep moving forward. On to the next goal!

    What an inspiration! Your loss is impressive, but it's your GAINS that really get my attention. What a list of triumphs!

Thank you, Sissie. You've made a difference in your life, and a difference in the lives of many of us here, too.
