Wow!! 3 months at SparkPeople have really changed me
Sunday, February 03, 2013
3 months ago today I joined Spark People. In that time frame I have made alot of changes. I've lost 6.6 pounds I have went from 27.4% body fat to 25.5%. My BMI went from 26.1 to 25.1, 0.1 short of being at a healthy weight and no longer overweight. I joined Spark Coach and haven't missed a day. Telling myself I only have to workout 10 minutes a day has completely changed my mindset. My monthly fitness minutes were 822 minutes-Nov 2012, December 2012- 2667 minutes, January 2013 - 4493 minutes. I joined the January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge and The Better Sleep Challenge in January never missing a day. I discovered that even if I am eating and working out if my sleep is bad that week I have a weight gain. I have made sleep a priority. I bought a fitbit one which really shows how much I am moving and how I am sleeping. In the past 3 months I have logged in to Spark People 85/92 days. I am currently on a 35 day fitness streak. I have never exceeded my daily calorie range. If I want a certain food I plan it in to my day and eat lower calorie meals that day so I can enjoy without guilt. I have met many great people on Sparkpeople who motivate me everyday. Coach Nicole's videos are amazing and I have all of her dvds. The old me would have been frustrated I haven't reached my goal weight yet. but I only have 5,2 pounds to go and I know I will make it there and be able to maintain due to the support I am getting from Sparkpeople.
