Today is My 1000th Day on Spark People!

Monday, November 19, 2012

I truthfully have been a member longer than a 1000 days but I didn't know what I was doing in the beginning and so it took me a few days to figure it out, but here I am.

I am at my goal weight and still maintaining, and even lost more than I expected to (almost 50 pounds).

I've had some bad weeks and some great ones over this time period, but I am so thankful that I ran across this site on a popular website and that someone mentioned this site in a forum.

I've managed to overcome some major emotional eating and that hasn't been easy, but I am so thankful that I have done the hard work and didn't give up. I knew I could do it, I just was afraid of doing it and afraid of gaining the weight back. I've been maintaining since early last year (if my calculations are correct) and I know that I have to make this a lifestyle and not a temporary thing.
