Disappointed! But With Progress Noted!!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Well, I went to my weigh in and measure yesterday. It was not all I had hoped it would be! I have lost another 3 pounds and 5 inches but thought it would be more. I suppose I have reached that awful plateau I have read about. Maybe I need to change my work outs to something different! I have added swimming to my workout since it has gotten so warm and I have a pool at home. My grandchildren add to the workout time in the pool as well. I am not going to let this get me down and will continue on my journey. It could have been worse I could have gained pounds and added inches!! I am still enjoying the improved me being down a total of 80 pounds since May of 2007! Since starting Spark I have lost a total of 51 pounds and "That Ain't Shabby" Actually I think it is progressing very well!! My goals are in sight and I am working on the down hill side of the equation. With the help of everyone I have met here I am able to see that it is possible for me to achieve my goal. It just may take a little longer than I had hoped. No more negative thoughts because that won't help anything. I should be proud of my accomplishments to date and strive to add to them!! I will push forward with my journey and goals. My diabetes glucose levels are better than ever, my cholesterol is no longer high, and I have been taken off many of the medications I was on prior to beginning this group. So many things are looking up!! Progress, Progress, Progress!!

    When we first start our weight loss journeys, we tend to lose fairly quickly but as we get down closer ito our goals, weight loss becomes slower. As long as you are losing, both weight and inches, you are not on a plateau.

    You are having amazing progress and 3 pounds is still quite an achievement. Keep up the good work.

    You should be proud of yourself. Look at the progress you have made. No one gains weight overnight so losing does not happen overnight. Being taken off meds is FANTASTIC. You will reach your goal- just stay POSITIVE- Happy to be a Sparker with you. Have a great day
