I gave up smoking on 20 Jan 2013, there were times when I thought I couldn't do it but I DID!!! If I can do that then I can lose weight too!!!

I loved reading this thread; Congrats to all of you and I'm wishing you continued victories in 2014.

Holly: You inspired me! I've started running again and I'm doing a 5k in about the same time as when you started. It's encouraging and motivating to read of how much you cut your time. emoticon and wish you continued success in 2014.

Amy: Sounds like your career change was a scary one financially but the best thing for your life. Here's to YOU in 2014! emoticon

Pam: Congrats on reaching your goal weight last year. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Margo: Congrats on earning your degree and best of luck in your career!! emoticon emoticon

One of my biggest victories was not gaining weight over the summer. We had a big family vacation but my hubby and I walked daily and I didn't gain anything despite having plenty of good food and wine:)! emoticon

Best wishes to all of you!

One of my biggest victories was exersizing. Exercise used to be a dirty word. Now I feel great when I exercise.

I was not on sparkpeople much in 2013. I did lose 10 lbs and kept it off all year. I had a rough year with Family and work. I am hoping 2014 is less rocky!

~~ Short Term Goal:
Drink Water every day!
Journal ever day!
Getting moving every day!

You all have such wonderful accomplishments from 2013! I applaud all of you! emoticon

In the middle of 2013 my family made a huge change in an an effort to be happier and healthier and I gave up my career in science (microbiology lab) in order to go back into teaching. My income was cut by more than 75%, but our family (we have 3kids) is much happier and I am on-time to games, practices, etc. basically, my kids trust me now that I will get them to practices on time, etc. I no longer work 12 hour days, 5x wk, I can cook homemade meals again, etc.

This extra time really allowed me to invest in myself, which was something my husband and I were committed to. I now have time to exercise, cook meals, go grocery shopping!!

I have spent 2013 learning how to take care of myself, learning and succeeding at exercise, and developing a plan to succeed in 2014. I have had enough time to figure out what worked for me and what didn't, and how to fit Sparktime and exercise time into my life.

Here's to 2014!! emoticon emoticon

My biggest victory of 2013 isn't really Spark related (although I didn't stop exercising at Christmas this year like I did last year). I graduated with my degree in accounting in December. Now I just need to find a job. I will still take a class each term until I have all the required classes for my CPA.

I finally learnt how to not let slipups affect me and jump right back on track after a binge.
That has been my biggest accomplishment of all times. And I owe that to SP community.
Love you all guys!!!

I joined SparkPeople and this awesome group after I struggled by myself for a month or so. I lost 23 pounds on my own, have only lost 4 with SparkPeople, but that is about a pound a week so I will happily take it. The main victory I had was taking that first step. The day I was sitting on the floor and had no idea how to get up was the day I said, "THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE NOW!!!!!!" Now I can get down on the floor to stretch, do crunches and whatever and stand up with little to no problems...Can not wait to see what 2014 brings! My hope is goodbye 52 to 104 pounds or anything in between, that is one to two pounds a week so should be doable. Especially once I get back to a gym but that may not be for a while, I am not working a lot of hours for the next month.

Remember no matter where you go, there you are!!!
