3 years on Spark

Thursday, August 15, 2013

So, I realized I have been on Sparkpeople 3 years!
I have in that time lost 20 lbs, put 13 back on, & am now 8 lbs away from goal.

Oh yes, I have a Mini Goal weight too!
I want to be back in the 140s.

A couple of weeks ago my husband Ted & I made a pact that we wouldn't have any junk in the house,
& the near nightly ice cream cones would have to go.

He of course dropped weight Immediately, but I noticed my clothes fitting a Smidge better after a week, & hung in there.

This week is the week where my efforts show on the scale, as well.

Oh yeah, did I mention that I have stayed under my calorie intake bar , & hit my protein marks?
(After 3 years, shouldn't I know this works Only IF you follow that ?!)

& we go for a walk every night after Supper, usually around 2 miles

Even when I don't feel like it

Or it has gotten so dark that Ted has to wear his hated reflector vest?

I have also started a 3:30 work break workout , where I do a series of crunches, wall push ups & shoulder raise squats.
I am going to leave a set of 5lb weights there so I can do more.

3 years is a long time, & I am still learning. I will never give up!!
Spark on, Sparkfriends :)))

    I, too, am still "surprised" it all comes back to the basics...tracking, eating healthy and moving emoticon

Happy 3 year Sparkversary!

    I think you've got it!

The plan only works if you follow it.
Doing it even when you don't feel like it!
And, Never Give Up!

Thanks for the great reminder in 3 (not so easy) steps.
