Weight Loss Week 1

Sunday, March 24, 2013

This was my first week on SparkPeople and I feel I have pretty much been married to this site all week. I have been inspired and educated by so many of the stories here. I never could have imagined the outpouring of support I have received in such a short amount of time. This really has been the medicine I needed to pull me out of the depression cycle I was in. I actually lost 5 pounds this week and I don't even miss the TV. I have been up and moving around and I can feel my self-esteem already starting to lift. I am praying now to get through the second week, because while I am still motivated, my body is so SORE! I did some squatting exercises with a medicine ball that seemed so easy at the time and now I can barely walk. Stairs are tough, but I've been trying to push through and use them anyway. I took it easier today and did all my workouts as walking and cycling and stayed far away from the squats!
Don't these look so innocent all stacked up in a neat little pile. Don't let them fool you!

My biggest accomplishment this week is that I worked through my emotions and I didn't let disappointment or negative energy from others keep me from what was good for me.

    Glad you are liking this web site.... it really is so amazing with so much information and support from so many people. Awesome that such a great first week, just be careful not to over do when you are sore. You certainly don't want to risk injuring yourself. Maybe continue your exercise but go a little easier on your body until the soreness goes away. Best of luck to you in your continuing journey!! emoticon

    Keeping motivated is great and keeping the negativity at bay is awesome. Keep up the good work and try not to overdo so much.
