Spring Time is here

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Everyone knows spring is suppose to be here but it has only been about a week of warm temps and that it really did feel like spring in Ohio.....

I have been spring cleaning for about a month, trying to get things done my way.....lol...

Today was my day to get my spring clothes out..... emoticon ..I was wondering what new things I might need and well the truth is I was wondering if the old things would fit....I have worked very hard the last 4 months to get back to my goal weight weight...I am there but still wondered .....

I am happy to report everything fits ....in fact a few things seems a bit loose....my jeans are fitting perfect a bit snug the way I like them....so I am feeling very happy with myself.....in 4 days I will have been with Spark people for 8 years....yep 8 years....and so proud of myself to be able to say I have kept the weight off...I go up and own with 10 pounds but as of this moment I am right on target....
My Dear friend Sock, who was a sparker girl with me way back so graciously reminded me that is how maintenance is.....you go up a few pounds then you go back down....you don't stay stuck at one weight....that really hit home with me....she was so right...she is always here keeping me on the straight and wide road to a healthy life....I hope she knows how much I appreciate here and all of the wonderful friends I have here at Spark People.....

So happy Spring everyone...I am going to reward myself with some new clothes....
back in 2006 I told someone I would be so thrilled if I could just loose 20 pounds...I would rejoice if I got below 300 pounds....I would dance in the street if I ever got under 200 pounds...i never took it further as I never ever thought in my wildest dreams that I would be wearing a size 10 jeans and a size small tops....who ever thought at a women over 50 could loose so much weight....not me...
yet I did it....I never did dance in the street but I do dance around my home when no one is looking...
I'm shutting up but just wanted to share that we must never ever give up....it might take longer that we expected it to take but like me you can do it.....together we can do it...we can be healthy.....

HUGS............... emoticon

    You are so sweet, Kitt, thanks! You've done all the hard work and help going and look where you are now. Keep up the great work, girlfriend! Someday I hope to join you in maintenance land. I keep working on me and keep taking all my little detours, but eventually I'll get there. Many paths, same goal. Love you!

Kitt. You continue to inspire me and keep me open to the idea that even though I am older than many here, I can still get to my dream weight. I am so happy you reached your goal weight again and that your lovely new clothes still fit. I have been denying myself any new clothes for about 4 years, hoping that I would lose so much weight in a season that when the next same season came around I would be delighted by needing to shop. SO far, I have not lost enough for that thrill, but I did decide that if I truly want to treat myself as I would treat a friend, that I will encourage myself to go out and find a few pretty NEW things to help me feel better about myself. I still have to shop in the big girl store but I can find lots of pretty things there.Keep caring and loving Kitt for me. She is a jewel and should be polished often and gladly!

    Thank-you! I really needed to hear this today. Congrats on your loss! I've never wore a size 10 but would love to get back to a 14 emoticon . Happy Spring to you too!
