What 9 Weeks of SP looks Like:

Saturday, December 19, 2009

I discovered SparkPeople just about 9 weeks ago and decided to give it a try. I'd tried pretty much everything else before. I have discovered that SP is very doable if you just show up and participate on a regular basis. I've never discovered another plan for healthy living that offers so much education. support and realistic expectations....all wrapped up in a super fun and easy to use environment. As of this morning, I have lost 20 pounds, have dropped 4 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my hips, 3 inches from my thighs, 1 inch from my upper arms; have increased my daily energy level and decreased my overall stress level. SP makes it possible to actually measure success! Without having found SP, I think I would still be floundering in my sea of unhealthiness :-) And so, this blog is being posted as a "Thank You" to SP and all of the people that make it happen, as well as a strong endorsement for same. If you're thinking about jumping in....JUST DO IT!!!! All you have to lose is the excess baggage that is chained to every appendage you possess. Step in and take off a load! I'm sure glad I did. I look "smaller", but most importantly I look and feel healthier. That's what I'm talking about :-) I plan to stick around and shed the rest of the excess baggage too. At SP I have truly learned to get off the diet-go-round and to CHANGE MY LIFE. It appears that you can , after all....teach an old dog new tricks :-)

    Eleven weeker here- I wish I had taken my measurements but I am 26 pounds lighter! Agree wholeheartedly about the increased energy and "healthiness". I love everything about SP- the nutrition and fitness trackers, killer blogs from the experts, and the amazing support from all my fellow sparkers are lifelines along my lifelong journey, because this teaches a lifestyle, not a quick and easy diet that we've all tried and failed at before!

    Thanks for the inspiration. I've been on for a year and have not been as committed as I should have been thus I haven't seen changes. Thank you for sharing.

    Awesome results!!! I think I'll just jump in and do it! Had I buckled down and got busy like you, I might have 20 pounds off of me by now. Thanks for the inspiration! emoticon
