I'm cassandra. I've been on my healthy journey since Feb 2009 officially, but it began with physical therapy and getting other health issues in order a couple years before that. As of today, I am only 5 pounds away from my Goal weight, which I set arbitrarily (just seemed so far away, it wasn't real) when I joined Spark last July.
In my journey, I've lost over 140 lbs and am back to the old life I remember, dancing, hiking, being active, healthy and happy. Well, mostly happy. :)
I still officially have 5 lbs to reach the goal I set, but honestly, the last 10-20 lbs have been gravy already. I only want to reach the goal at this point because I set it, but I'd be quite happy and content at the weight I am now, too. So hopefully, I'm not out of line joining your group.
I do hope to find ways to maintain, that is a new skill. Losing has become so, well, thoughtless and simple that honestly, I've partly been trying to sloooooow down or even pause losing weight so my skin can catch up, but it just keeps coming off. I know that many of you may wonder why I complain about that, but it's kind of scary when you try to stop and find that it just keeps going. So I'd like to learn how to maintain my weight, without going up or down, because all this working to be healthier is going to be defeated if I fall into a yo-yo pattern, right?
So looking forward to learning and sharing. And if any of you are local to Rochester NY area, please feel welcome to email me, maybe we can get together! :)
You are not defined by your thoughts or your hopes, you are defined by your actions. In the end, what you did or didn't do will prove who you are.
