61 pounds since March 08. I have lost 49lbs with sp. I also have been able to manage my emotional eating, get rid of the diet mentality, feel good about myself and my body, and found so many new friends and good friends. I have gained much more than I have lost due to sp and especially this team.

1 bite at a time = 1 choice at a time.
Choice is in our power; take the power and run.

Nothing is forever why not live for today and make it the best day ever.

I am my best friend.

As you can see....we have some pretty big numbers here. It is incredible how many people talk about other things besides just the weight that they let go. This is so encouraging for all of us and I hope that all of you that read this feel the same way. We can do this....we are doing this...one day at a time, one day at a time....

One day at a time......in my red high heels, and my crown!

I am so done bein the fat girl...how bout you?

It's no longer a diet. I am calling it my live-it.

started my "diet" jan 3rd

found spark in march, and i totally believe i'm still here, still working on it, cuz of spark

~~i let go of the diet mentality, i'm learning daily about how to do this for life!!

~~i let go of the excuses, no excuses, i make my choices, good and bad, and i live with the consequences, good and bad!!

~~i let go of the guilt-- no beating myself up-- knowing i'm only human, can only do so much, and the no guilt goes with accepting responsibility for my choices

i agree with sasi-- i do think seeing things like this helps others know it's possible, i know it's huge for me, it's what motivates me the most-- seeing others just like me, seeing their struggles, and how strong and determined they are to try and try and try-- and that gets me going!!

i let go-- dropped-- TOTALLY left behind:

300's
obese BMI
200's
a W on my jeans
121 pounds

and now.........

what can we all do in 2009!!!!

I don't remember what I started at in January 2008. I quit for awhile and came back and got serious in June 2008. Since June I have let go of 55 lbs and alot of insecurities. I took a break for the holidays and still managed to lose 3 lbs. YEAH ME!!!! I can't wait to reach my goal in 2009.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Let's see...you'd think I'd know this right off the top of my head, wouldn't you? Gotta do the math......66 pounds gone in 2008!! Wow, I guess I've been keeping my focus on the small goals so much that I haven't taken the time to think about the big picture. I've lost 47 pounds with SP, the rest I lost before finding this wonderful site.

Let's meet next year, same Spark place, same Spark time and talk about how much we let go (forever) in 2009!!

I thought it might be fun to announce to the world here...how much you let go in 2008.For those of us who have been here a while....it adds up.....and to those of you who are just starting out.....maybe it will be an inspiration to you to see that it can be done. I will start........

I LET 35 POUNDS GO IN 2008.

One day at a time......in my red high heels, and my crown!
