20 pounds lost, but oh, what I have found!! Day 45

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I am so happy to be able to say I've lost 20 pounds and a total of 10.75 inches
to date! My first 45 days have been good and bad, but mostly good.
I have met so many wonderful people, and I have never felt I have had so much support as I do with all of my Spark Buddies! That must be why this site is so successful for so many people!
I have learned a lot about myself. I have also learned alot about nutrition, my health, food and so many other things I may have never known, had I not joined Sparkpeople. Have you ever gone to read an article just to get the points, then when you get there you realize there are things in that article that actually pertain to you!! What a concept...huh
When I found this place, I was just looking for a place to log my food. I had woke up that morning and it was going to be a warm day, so I pulled out a pair of capri pants I had worn last summer and to my surprise, I couldn't even get them over my butt. When did that happen? And why hadn't I noticed it before. I'll tell you why. I stopped putting myself on my own to do list.... again!
BUT NO MORE! Every day is a chance for me to be the best that I can be.... for me.
So now I will start on the next 20 pounds. I have decided not to think past that, and do this 1 day at a time, 1 pound at a time to get to the best me in no time.
Thanks to all of my friends who helped me get here. I ask you to stick with me, because I need your support & friendship and I will always be here for you. We are in this together. It is so much easier to keep standing, when you have someone to lean on.
Oh and FYI, I wore those capri pants today for the 1st time!!! emoticon
