End of Spring Challenge

Friday, May 10, 2013

The Spring challenge is coming to end, so it's time to recap. I have to say that I'm having conflicting feelings when it comes to what I've accomplished. To be honest I haven't completely done my best. I started this challenge with lots of enthusiasm (part of it was that I was new to Sparkpeople), but then somewhere in-between I just started "skipping" things. However, I did lose 9lbs - my goal was 10, but I think that is quite an achievement!

It's hard to follow a plan completely with all the other 'life' challenges as well, although that is not an excuse. What the Spring challenge gave me was the motivation to continue with my new healthy lifestyle, and I am very grateful for that. What about the future? There is a happy event in my family in October - my sister is getting married. I want to really 'shine' at that wedding and look my best - not skinny but not fat either. I know it will take a while longer to meet my ultimate goal (140lbs), and then there will be the maintaining. I'm looking forward to all these challenges! And most of all, I want to remain being "on track" with my workout and healthy eating. There are other goals in my life as well which aren't that weight-loss oriented, but let's leave that for maybe another blog!

I wish everyone in the Bouncing Apple Blossoms group to keep going! There will always be set-backs but we can do this! emoticon
