My top 10 things that help me to stick with it!

10. Seeing old clothes becoming so loose that I look sloppy now.
9. Getting new clothes in smaller sizes!! YAY!
8. Being able to do things that I couldn't do before, without feeling exhausted.
7. Pride in achieving something I've wanted to do for a very long time. That, of course, is losing weight.
6. Feeling better-physically, & mentally!
5. An attitude of wanting to show everybody (plus myself) that I CAN DO IT!
4. Having my doctor be shocked at what I've done so far. Can't wait till my next appt.--more shock awaits!
3. Teams that I'm active with, are an integral part of helping me to stay on target. It's great to be a part of a team that supports each other.
2. Sparkpeople, the website--with all the tools, teams, articles, etc. that they offer, how could you not succeed! I'm surprised Disney doesn't sponser them, because this website is truly--MAGICAL!
1-b. I've made a very good friend here at Sparks, & she has encouraged me every step of the way! She has played an enormous part in helping me to stick with it. I'm greatful for her support, & friendship. I owe her a million thank you's. She knows who she is, & if she is reading this--I want to send her my love, & lots of hugs!!!!
1-a. The wonderful support, & motivation from my husband, & son, has given me the inspiration to stick to it! Their positive comments make me feel so wonderful about myself, & how far I've come. I know they are proud of me, & happy for me. I know they are getting a kick out of watching me go through these changes, & the fun I'm having doing it!! I love them more than they will ever know, & I hope they will take my lead, & start eating healthier too.

    Wow, sorry it took me so long to read this blog! SP seems to "unsubscribe" me to blogs on occasion and yours was one of them - but I'm now re-subscribed! LOL I loved reading your list, June! You're doing SO well and now that I've seen you tear up when talking about your progress first hand and in person, I know how proud you are of yourself and how GREAT you feel about it all! That's the most important thing of all! I'm glad you have the support of Ray and Jeff cuz that makes all the difference in the world, and I'm willing to bet that they will both follow your example and begin living in a healthier way, as well! You are the epitomy of inspiration! Keep it going, Girl! I want you to get that goal that says "I'm treating myself to a trip to Southern California!"

    Thanks for the great post - I'm sure it was motivational to you to write, but it will help so many others like me who need to hear/see successes in order to stick with it. Thanks!
