I feel the need to post this picture of my Spark weight report (dating back to beginning of 2013)! Some of you may think I've been losing a LOT of weight due to the automatic status updates that Spark posts when you take off the pounds. I know that the scale is not the ultimate measure of our success. I just don't want to mislead anyone (myself included) into thinking I've been shedding lots of weight when I'm not!
In the States, I didn't have access to a scale at first, then found a digital one at my hostess's home that turned out to be really wonkers as you can tell by the flurry of activity toward the end of the time line! I couldn't seem to get an accurate reading but I recorded what it said because I had to log it for my challenges.
Now I'm home to my practically-antique analog scale that I have a bit more trust in. I took a look at my report and have to laugh at all the highs and lows because I knew that I had pretty much stayed the same - gained a pound or two during my trip to the States, but nothing TOO serious.
The good news is that the yellow line shows that I'm only about 3 pounds off where I need to be to reach my goal weight by my next birthday in July, 2013. So, if I can continue the downward trend, I may just make it by then. Oh, and I lost a pound somewhere between Wednesday's weigh-in and today! That's what tracking and the gym, and the support of super teamies will do for ya!
