1 YEAR AGO!
Thursday, March 10, 2011
I am taking my idea for this blog from another friend that made her Sparkaversary yesterday! She looked at last years blog and reflected on what she wrote a year ago and how things have been since then. Well here is my first blog on SparkPeople:
March 12, 2010
I didn't know if I wanted to write my thoughts and feelings down where other people would read them, but maybe it is a good thing! I am in my first week of being at the spark website. Have to say I love it so far. I have been doing Biggest Loser for almost 2 months. So far I have lost 13 pounds. I have also quit smoking 18 1/2 days ago. My goal in life is to be healthy. I started this journey actually after a huge fight with my boyfriend. But I knew that it needed to be done. I had gotten in a rut. I had gotten extremly lazy and unhappy! Slowly I am trying to change things around me and about me.
Just getting off my butt has been a start. I used to come home and just go to my room, turn on the tv and not really move...wonder why I was fat!!! And then cook dinner with butter, salt and what ever else was bad for me to eat!! Now, get home from work, work out first thing. Then cook a good meal with fresh veggies and chicken or fish. I have to say, there have been few times in the last 2 months that I have felt deprived. I really have felt like each meal was really good!!
Anyway, my son is coming home today. It will be the first time he has seen me since I began this journey. It is also the first time he will ever see his mom as a NON SMOKER!! I can't wait to see him....I'm so excited!! Well this is the beginning! What a wonderful day!!!
Wow, well not much has changed! I still love chicken and fresh veggies for dinner for sure! I haven't felt deprived of really anything this entire year! I have now lost 32 pounds...woo hoo!!! And funny thing, my son is coming home too...:) Yea!! Although just found out he is coming home tomorrow now which bites!! Life is good! It has been good this year! I look forward to many more years as a member of Spark! I think as long as I stay here, stay accountable and stay off my BUTT I will do just fine! I mean, I have NEVER stayed with any program this long in my entire life, so something has to be working for me!!
Thank you to everyone that has been around for this year! It has been amazing!! With out you I'm not sure I would be in such a place!! Here's to a GREAT 2nd year!!!
