How to loose 70lbs in 40 short months!

Thursday, May 15, 2014

After loosing 70lbs in my first 14 months doing Spark, I experienced a series of health challenges that have put me off exercise for a total of 11 months in the last 26 months. I know this because I never stopped tracking my food and exercise despite the periods of inactivity and less than clean eating. Although I continue to be incapacitated for a few days at a time due to back pain, I have managed to claw my way back to the 70lb weight loss total once again. I never put on more than 14 lbs during long periods of Doctor ordered inactivity.
I think I can safely say that I have adopted a new healthy lifestyle because I have always resumed my program as soon as I was cleared by my doctors.
I may never win awards for speedy weight loss but I might deserve a bronze for perseverance
