Hi there,thanks for stopping by.
I felt I needed to write a blog about this years weight loss..OR lack of
I started my journey 2/21/09 at my highest weight EVER..314 lbs!!
I was so humiliated that I couldn't even tell anyone my weight..
It was ALL because of GOD that I found Spark
I was on fire for getting healthy!!
I was kicking pounds to the curb right,and left!! WINNING challenges!! I loved it..LOVED the journey..Loved my new friends on Spark
And I was doing it the healthy way.A way I had never tried before.
By the end of that first year on Spark I had lost 94 lbs!! For the first time in my life (that I can remember)I weighed in at 220 lbs!!
I could do things I never had before..I had energy!!
Then the horrible PLATEAU hit!! Well after not seeing any results I slacked..BIG TIME!! In fact I gained almost 20 lbs back this year..This whole year for me weight loss wise has been a waste
I have LOST strength I once had..I have LOST determination!!
I will SHOUT WHY it has been a waste..
I found a NEW love for Taco Bell..Sometimes twice in one day!!
I wasn't consistent with tracking my food..
I wasn't consistent with my exercise!! I would do it a couple days a week..BUT that wasn't enough..
I could go on and on about what happened this year..Heartbreaking events
BUT that is no excuse..GOD was right there with me..So I have NO excuse.
Yes I am being hard on myself..BUT hey I think I have to..A year is just too long to let go of my health.
I am HAPPY to report that for 2 weeks I have exercised CONSISTENTLY !!
My goal is to aim for 10 minutes minimum 6 days a week..I always do more..BUT hey its easy to just get up to do 10 minutes.
I guess I kinda needed to write this all out for myself..Kinda clear my head..So I don't feel like I'm hiding it all..Yes some health issues have played a role in this journey..BUT that is no excuse for me to stay off track for SO long.
So with a lot of PRAYER..and the new year..I will write a NEW blog,with pictures..From when I first started..to now.Also with all my GOALS for 2011.
Not only will I be starting FRESH,with NEW goals..
My Team 8 Week Battle #11 will be starting FRESH as well..With lots of "POSITIVE" changes.
If you read this,and your one of my Warriors..PLEASE feel free to SparkMail me with any ideas you may have..This is a Team.I want to help as many people as I possibly can.With your suggestions I can create something GREAT!! The Battlefield is awesome..But sometimes there comes a time when a little "change" is needed!!
Thank you so much for the support you give..I love my Spark Family.
God Bless..and Happy Holidays!! Or should I say..HAPPY Birthday JESUS!!
