To my Spark cycling friends; One thing I love about this team is that we don't focus on food, weight loss, or obsess over every calorie eaten, but rather discuss living a healthy lifestyle through cycling. (OK, here's the big "but")... However, I am very excited to report that the week of June 23 I set a goal to lose 10 pounds by August 9, the date I am attending a family wedding. I was sick of staying the same weight even though my fitness had greatly increased over the prior six months. This was due to me binge-stress eating and just not keeping myself accountable for the amount and quality of food that I was putting in my mouth. I am so excited to report that through healthy eating and calories counting I reached that goal today. When I set this goal I had lost 2 pounds so that brings my total to 12! I must tell you that it feels really good to have met this goal and I have now decided to lose another 5 and then reassess from there (at this point I don't really know what my optimum weight should be but I know I'm now in the ballpark). Hopefully, I will be able to re-incorporate cyling/spinning into the mix to increase my overall health! As always, thanks for letting me share. No reponses necessary!
