Another First! Thanks & Shout Out to Our SparkFamily!
Friday, March 14, 2014
Thank you everyone for all of your TREMENDOUS support which pushed one of my recent blogs ("A Change in Perspective: Preparing for Maintenance") toward achieving my very first Popular Blog Post award!
It's not only a super day for this reason alone, but have notched down in another couple of ways that have me psyched as well: 1) I've crossed another big number by dropping below 220, which would be 100 pounds below where I started when joining SparkPeople in 2007 and 2) This led me to pulling out a "Large" shirt which I tried on only a few weeks ago and had barely buttoned around my belly yet already fits comfortably today...YES! Soon to kiss all the XLs goodbye and pass on to the Thrift Store!
While I'm lovin' it, I can't help but do a little head-scratching as over the past few weeks the pounds have NOT been flying. It's been a patience game for myself seeing the numbers drib, drab, zig up, zag down and just reminding myself to stay the course: ounce by ounce those pounds are gonna go!
PLUS not only have the pounds been slowing way down but with all this cardiac stuff going on my workouts have been more sparsely populated and less vigorous.
Since being unable to drive last week I have yet to get to the fitness center and relegated myself to mostly walking, jogging...yet look at these rewards I'm reaping! Go me! :-)
Such a wonderful note on which to kick off my weekend!
Thank you again everyone!
Viva la SPARK!
