Today is day 39 of my on track streak!

I started a Healthy Holidays team and I am blessed that some of my Spark friends have joined me there. We are supporting each other as we work hard to stay on track this holiday season, and to make as much progress as possible by New Years Day. As of today, there are 40 days until New Years Day!



Today on the Healthy Holidays team, we are discussing progress...the progress we've made so far this year, and the progress we'd like to make by the end of the year.

My weight loss has pretty much been at a stand still this year, and to be honest...its my own fault. I have days and weeks when I'm fully on track and doing all the right things. I eat right, I exercise, I drink my water, and I stay committed to being healthy. I lose a few pounds....and then I go off track. I have wasted most of this year losing and regaining the same few pounds, over and over.

But yet...I can also say that I've made plenty of progress this year! My progress might not show up on the scale, but it shows in other ways. It shows in the fact that I am so much healthier than I was before I started my journey. I am fit and strong. I have endurance. That is progress!



I have also learned to love myself enough to make my health a priority. I have almost completely silenced the negative voice in my head that used to tell me "You can't do it." You know what? I CAN do it. I believe that I can do just about anything I put my mind to, and that is progress, too!

My clothes fit better. My body is firming up. I can do yoga...I can move my body in ways that used to be impossible for me to do. I am determined to keep improving, and I don't allow myself to ever give up. I am stronger than that! And yeah, thats progress too!

What progress would I like to make by the end of the year? I just want to keep my current streak going. I know there will be days that are not as good as others, but I know that as long as I have more good days than bad ones, then I am a success. I am worth my best effort!

    YOU are worth it. WE ALL are worth the effort we put into ourselves even if we fall off track once in a while. It happens, we are human.

    Great job, especially in recognizing that not all progress includes the number on the scale. I'm in this for the health benefits and if one of the side effects is weight loss than hallelujah.

  I really like what you said about being worth it and wanting to do it, and your last mini poster. I am really, REALLY, T-r-u-l-y wanting to see and hear your success. If been long enough and I've read many of your blogs, that I can hardly wait until those numbers budge. Go for it, you are becoming new and improved. Go girlfriend! G-oooo emoticon emoticon emoticon

    a standstill regarding weight is not a bad thing. It gives your body time to adjust and not gaining is always a plus!

    Good to see you have made progress. I would so love to join your team. I have lost 17 pounds this year and I have had 4 people notice (feels great that my hard work is paying off even if I am wearing baggy clothes). Keep up the good work. Chin up butter cup!

    You are so right that a year of hovering around the same weight is *NOT* a waste but a triumph! We've learned to maintain, we've gotten stronger, we've developed new habits that will serve to move us forward even further!

I just got into Yoga in August and am doing it every day at a studio. Finally, something I enjoy! Don't you just love seeing how flexible and strong you get? emoticon

    Hello Pixie - it's good to read your update.

I love that last quote - I'll have to remember that one!

Like you, looking back at the year as a whole, I could easily feel discouraged, but I know I have made progress in some areas and over the last few weeks my weight has even moved in a slightly downward direction, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do over the next 40 days!

God bless
