Losing weight, gaining momentum

Saturday, October 31, 2009

This week I am finally seeing some measurable results. For months now I was struggling to lose a pound here or there only to gain it right back. Now, I'm happy to say I'm down 8 pounds and I can actually feel a difference!

Many Sparkpeople have encouraged me to keep on trying even though I wasn't making progress. I gave up a few times, but the positive energy here kept me coming back. Finally the hard work is beginning to pay off. The smaller number on the scale is the best motivation I could have wished for.

Five months ago I don't think that I believed that I deserved to be healthy. I'm beginning to find new strength within myself. I had no idea that the benefits of joining this site wouldn't be just physical. I am becoming a much stronger, healthier person in every aspect of my life.

Cheers!

    Hang in there and keep at it! Make it long haul and enjoy the pleasures of life like I do. Monday I have been doing this 6 years and my body ain't finished changing yet.. Morph into a beautiful butterful, we are worth it and our family will appreciate having a more happy person around them..
