What a Difference 4 Years and 80 Released Pounds Makes
Friday, January 10, 2014
In a few short months, I will have been Sparking for FOUR YEARS! I wish today-me could have gone back in time to tell the newly-joined me that there are so many wonderful, life-changing experiences and accomplishments just waiting for her.
Me to Me: "Hang in there, Girl! You won't be like this for much longer!"
In under two years I lost about 60 pounds. A few more months and I was down about 70 pounds. Then, for most of 2013, I maintained my weight within a few pounds and ended the year still maintaining. Another remarkable happening in 2013 was correction of a life-long breathing restriction that I didn't even know I had. Able to finally breathe properly, I took up jogging in December and was re-sparked to tackle the remaining weight I still want to lose.

Just this week I passed the 80-pounds-lost mark. Woohoo! I'm not sure until I get there, but I think I might only need to lose another 5-7 pounds to be at an appropriate body fat percentage, and then back to maintenance. I can't wait to find out what else 2014 has in store for me.
What do you hope for in 2014?
