I have been a Sparkie for 350 days. Fifteen days short of a year. I have lost 45 lbs in that time - that's one lb gone every 8 or so days. Not that it goes that way, of course.
I am also about 3 or 4 sizes smaller. That's one size smaller every three months. Or so.
I still have another 30, 40, 45 lbs to go. But I don't focus on that. I focus on the loss. Gone. Forty-five lbs. I don't know that I could lift and carry 45 lbs very far. It's amazing to think about carrying that amount of weight on my body, that I walked around with that weight all the time.
Now, I can bound up two flights of stairs. I can lift a filled piece of luggage over my head and put it into the luggage compartment of an airplane. (Which impressed the two 80 year old women already sitting on the plane.) I can fit into normal size clothes, not plus.
It has been a year well spent. I cannot say how proud I am to have these results, in only a year.
Thank you, SparkWorld.
