My SparkPeople Journey, By The Numbers

Thursday, December 11, 2008

It's a day for celebration! No, I am not quite at my goal. But my 1-pound loss marks 25 pounds lost since I joined SparkPeople! So being the numbers person that I (sometimes) am, I thought I would look to see what else that means!

Pounds lost: 25
Days since I joined Spark: 456
# of days it took me to lose each pound, on average: 18 (yikes!)
# of pounds that I have had to lose THREE times after vacation weight gain: 5 (so that means I've actually lost 35 pounds... but gained 10 in-between!)

Spark Points: 19,190!

Total inches lost between hips and waist: 10
Total sizes dropped in my jeans: 3

Total number of calories burned according to the Fitness Tracker: 89,386!
Number of days that I logged some form of exercise since joining Spark: 368
That means I worked out, on average, 5.6 days a week! (including holiday, vacation and sickness breaks... but many weeks I did 7 days/week!)

Number of days a week I worked out before SparkPeople: less than 1

Number of pounds to go until my goal: 2

Woo-Hoo! Hooray for me! I am so excited. Some days, I still wonder if, when I hit my goal, if I really, truly, know what a lifestyle change means. Some days, when I feel down, I still feel like diving head-first into the ice cream container (but at least it's low-fat ice cream these days). But when I see, in measurable terms, what I have accomplished in the last 15 months (456 days, to be exact), I know that I can do anything. I really, truly can. Thanks, SparkPeople. This is the best life lesson I have ever figured out. I know it's not over. But I think I'll get an "A+" on the final.
