My Three Year Anniversary On Spark

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I have been on Spark for three years now, but have only been seriously pursuing my healthy lifestyle for the last last year. It wasn't that I eat healthy foods for the most part, or that I didn't exercise, because i did do both of them. However, I did not track my food or my exercise and I was completely surprised to see how many calories I was consuming and how many more calories I needed to burn in the coarse of a day. Once my eyes were opened to these two important facts and I began to make changes, my weight began to come off. It has not been easy and I did not expect it to be, but I do have my goal weight of 189 very near. I am truly grateful for the wonderful and accurate guidance that is available here on Spark,bet more important to me are the friends and support that I now have. Thank you all.

    Glad you getting close to your goal. Like you, it's only been recently that I've taken that long hard look at my everyday habits and saw that change was in order if I'm to hit my goal. Happy anniversary and good luck getting to 189! emoticon
