Almost 1 year with SP!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I started my journey with SP almost 1 year ago, can't believe it's been that long. While I didn't meet my overall goal, I learned so much about myself, my body and what works best for me. I have gone from 210lbs to 185 since last January after many failed attempts. This is a huge accomplishment for me!

I fell off after August, feeling comfortable with the new me but now ready for a new goal! My long term goal is to reach 135- 140lbs by the end of 2013 however my wedding date is Sept 15, 2013 and I am setting up some mini goals until then.

For my first SP anniversary I want to reach my halfway point of 170 lbs! I have 7 weeks to lose 15lbs which is within my 2.5lbs per week abilities. I need as much encouragement and motivation as possible. Cheer me on as I meet 2013's first mini goal!! I will be spending 30 minutes 4 x per week on cardio alternating each of those days for strength training of upper/lower body with core sculpting 3 of those days.

This is my chance to make a huge stride in the right direction while getting me fit for my big day and working on 2013's goals! WISH ME LUCK!!

    Thank you for the kind words! @NIKKICOLE83 - congrats on your big day as well! September is a fabulous wedding month :)

    2.5 is what's physically possible, after my long plateau it's been slowly coming off!

    Thanks again ladies!

    emoticon On both your weight loss and your upcoming wedding. It looks like you've got a good idea of what you need to do to reach your goals. Push hard for that first mini goal to get to 170 by your SparkVersary. I think it's awesome when someone can lose 2-2.5 pounds in a week. My weight just doesn't move (off) that fast - I wish, though!

    Congratulations on the big day! I am getting married on Sept 7th, 2013! I like that you are setting mini-goals. I wish I could lose 2.5 lbs a week. I probably could but i wouldnt keep it off. I can workout like a mad woman but I love to eat, even the healthy stuff!
