I know we weigh in here on Mondays, but my regular weigh in is on Fridays. As of this morning I've reached my half way point! I'm down to 164 pounds. I don't remember ever weighing so little and I'm loving it! I can't believe I've come this far... Wow...

HEY guess what--

I posted a message about SP on a "Mamasource" website that I am part of and I got 3 more members to join. That is where I learned about SP 7 months ago. I am so excited for those people. That is a total of 10 referrals.

I have been "speading the spark" at work and now have 7 referrals.... I hope they enjoy the experience as much as I have.

PS I am currently wearing a size 14 pants. I started SP at a 24.

DH made me go shopping last night emoticon . He said he was tired of seeing my jeans falling off my butt, so I should go get some new ones. Well, I did, and they're 2 sizes smaller! emoticon And I put on a bra this morning that I haven't worn since I started on SP. It used to be too tight even with a band extender on it. This morning, I had to take the extender off, and I have it hooked on the smallest setting! emoticon

Yay! I get to press the button! I am off of caffeine!!! I "accidentally" got the rest of the way off it over the weekend. I was running around so much that I didn't even notice that I hadn't had any since Saturday morning. I had half a can of coke on Sunday night, and that was the last caffeine I've had!!!

High five MEG & TNT! wishing you the best with your fresh starts.

I just read a spark article called "3 steps to building consistency", which is in the list on the team's home page. It really fits with the point you made, MEG: set realistic goals that build over time. We can do this!

Let go, or get dragged.

I'm back to "start over" (again!, lol) I really love that we CAN really start over every day!!

I've decided I just set my goals too high and then got depressed when I couldn't reach them - which then set me in nice downward spiral.

I started again really slowly with "exercise one time this week" and have now done that 3 weeks in a row emoticon

Thanks LAB :) I measured my route on a map and it was 5.75k. Not bad for a spontaneous jaunt.

And not that it's 100% related, but my scale budged this morning for the 1st time in 4 wks. Looks like the renewed effort (including joining this team) will pay off, yay!

I'm pressing the button because I went for a 70 minute walk today, about 5k along the lake. Happy because I've been trying to renew my spark efforts lately, and felt a wave of inspiration this afternoon that led me to put my runners on.

lol that's ok. I can imagine it's going to the right. I have a feeling I'll be making some kind of progress this week because I just started strength training again and I am feeling it ALL OVER my body! Now if my numbers start changing, I won't know what to do next!

Thanks for your support!

Hugs,

Lynn - Huge congrats on the rock climbing...not something I can do... run em perhaps...

rlarson - Awesome on your first 5k...Honestly all those speedy folks scare me. Congrats.

Ok, my dumb. Ran the Grand Teton 50 miler a week ago on little training. so now I'm contemplating the Boulder 100 - a flat course, could do me in. And I thought I could retire from this stuff...

I did my first 5K this weekend, by participating in a walk to fight ALS in Raleigh, NC. My finish time was 42' 43". Not lightning speed, but it was enough to finish first in my group. (OK...actually second...behind my son. But he was on rollerblades!) I don't know my actual place overall, but I think it was in the top 20 (out of about 300-400 walkers). I am very proud of myself!

Ok, I know it's cheesey but I'm going to push the button first (and no, it's not the reason I created it..Ha Ha!), because I'm still so empowered by my last weekend's activities. So here goes:

I WENT ROCK CLIMBING AND DID THE WHOLE THING!!!

Ok, wow, that felt good! hee hee hee
