Fifty Pounds Lighter
Thursday, May 05, 2011
Nine months ago, on August 4, 2010, I rejoined SparkPeople and set a goal to lose 50 pounds in 10 months. After a very long plateau in April, I finally met my goal one month early. As of May 1, 2011 I have lost 50.5 pounds. WooHoo!
I'm not finished yet, I would still like to lose another 25-30 pounds, but after losing 50 pounds, those numbers don't scare me. Never, in all of my weight loss efforts, have I ever lost this much weight at one time. I have SparkPeople, my Spark teams, my Spark friends and a little will power to thank for this. SparkPeople has helped me to not look so far ahead at the daunting, big picture, but to learn to take this journey slowly, just one day at a time. By doing this, my days turned into weeks and my weeks into months and here I am 50 pounds lighter and loving life!
