New Spark Shirt!

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Since the shirts were on sale for $5 a piece this week, I decided I could afford a couple. I ended up ordering a couple of women's fitted shirts, but this one I though was really funny:

I know I'm a little crazy and I also know I'm not at my ideal weight (for my thought process), but hovering at a 50 pound loss lets me know I have lost it enough to have this shirt.

I was looking at my last pictures and found that I've been pretty much maintaining for most of the last year. There has been a 10 pound hovering and right now I'm in the middle of that hovering.

I think I'm getting back into the need to finish off this weight loss mode again. I think part of it is the change in tracking, so I'm more likely to track again. The other part of it is being a leader in the Hungry For Change team.

Many people, including myself will congratulate me on the weight I have lost, but once again, I've stopped in the middle of a project. I've hit the "good enough" phase. That's just not going to be good enough this time. I may have taken a little longer than originally planned, but I will get it done. I keep looking at the pictures and saying how fat I still look. I'm at the weight I was while I was in college and going on adult vacations with my mother. Those pictures I thought I looked fat too, and that was about the weight I'm at now.

I may look a lot better than I did, but I know I can look better. I have a final goal of 150 and I will get back to that, but I also wonder what 145 would look like, since I haven't been that since early High School. I stopped at 150 for the beginning of my adulthood while I was still fairly active. It wasn't until I had a boring sit-down job that I started to gain weight around 26.

Eventually I want to get more Spark Shirts, but I want to see medium or small in those shirts! I'd love to see those sizes I was in at my ideal weight!

Today's Holidays: Bastille Day, Tape Measure Birthday 1868, Pandemonium Day and National Grand Marnier Day.

    I bought three T-shirts while they were on sale. I bought the same one in a different color. It felt good to order size S instead of L.

    My kids think I have lost it most of the time! I was going to order one of those shirts, but they must be out of those because when I had the time to order, those shirts were gone. Very cute.

    I know when I start to feel complacent with my weight loss, I risk losing my motivation to continue the hard work that I still need to do. I get what you're saying. 50 pounds is incredible and gives me such inspiration! YAY YOU! That shirt is great and a terrific bargain!

    A good incentive! You will get there. By the way, I wanted to thank you for telling us the different days it is each day. Was able to congratulate one of my friends that's in a Barber shop group and she didn't even know there was a holiday! Enjoy your blogs. Keep up the good work! emoticon

Getting back on track during the summer is a great time with all the fresh fruits and veggies available to eat.
