Since starting SP I've realized that my body is a lifetime work in progress. I've lost some weight, but more important, I have learned to think about every thing that goes into my mouth. One of my new short term goals is to increase my strength training.

I changed my final goal recently and I am there. I will now be maintaining, at least until I decide that I am no longer thin...

I just found a website that makes 100 pushups possible in 6 weeks. It's tied together with 200 situps in six weeks. I've found another goal.

I have accomplised what I started to do - Which is a work in progress that Spark People is the BIGGEST help. Learning to make better choices about my health from excerising to eating right while not getting down on myself. My long term goal for losing the weight is also progressing maybe not as fast as I want but I am moving toward it. So I got to say yes to the short term and the long term and that I wouldn't be where I am without Spark People! emoticon

I also started out with completely different goals. I haven't reached those, but I have reached others. I have more energy than I used to. (which still isn't much, but it's a lot more than I started with!)

I eat much healthier. I include thoughts of fruits and veggies each day. Sometimes I eat things that don't leave me feeling as good as I'd like. So I just learn and move on!

5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!

If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!

FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.

While I refuse to use the scale to gauge my health it would be fun to watch the belly melt away a little faster. I have made my goal of some sort of exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, with a few forgiveness days mixed in. I have also seen change for the better, weight is down, my knees and back don't hurt as often, my cardio is better and that is the main thing. I want to be ready for backpacking in early spring.

My original goal was to follow the nutrion program and see if I could lose weight. Any weight. Well, 10 months later I have lost 60 pounds (only 15 mor to go) can move easily, have more energy and have learned a lot about living healthy. What more could I ask for?

Hope is here-Perfection isn't

God Bless

I started out with all these goals of "lose 10 pounds by date X", "lose 20 pounds by date Y" only to discover that I had a lot of other work to do first. Like honestly looking at what I was eating vs. "healthy eating". Or how much exercise at what level of intensity is really needed to lose weight. And re-defining my goals to reflect reality. Not "how much weight have I lost?" but "what can I do that I couldn't?" or "how do I feel these days" or (most importantly) "how healthy am i compared to last October?"

So while I have lost 13 pounds in 5 months, I have made greater strides in developing a healthy lifestyle, with proper nutrition at useful times of the day, and actual vigorous exercise. I now sleep like a log every night, awaken feeling refreshed, love to go to the gym, can now run 2 miles in 20 minutes, have more energy, am more forgiving of my mistakes, and am less worried about the scale than what I can do with myself.

So I guess the short answer is "No" but that's because I had the wrong goals to start with.

I've lost about ten pounds and doubled my energy... Plus, I've started giving myself credit for being resilient and weeding out excuses.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Have you reached any long term or short term goals since joining Spark People?

I have reached a short term goal in my weight loss. The long term goal can be so discouraging when the scale doesn't move very fast.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
