I ran to my computer this morning! Can you all guess why?!? (I bet you can...) Yep, I did it, I reached my original goal! I wanted to reach 140 lbs by Christmas and as of this morning, I am there! All I can say is Thank God for Sparpeople! I may have been able to reach my goal just doing it alone by exercise, but I don't think so. I think tracking what I eat, learning about portion sizes, learning the RIGHT things to eat, learning to track my water, all the educational articles and most importantly - all of you offering encouragement and support, is what made the difference! I have tried to lose weight in the past, but I was never able to stick to a diet for more than a couple weeks. It has been almost seven months, and the changes I have made are now a part of my life, so I am confident that I will be able to actually KEEP the weight off. When I think of all the hours I have spent at the gym, all the careful meal planning, I feel a sense of accomplishment. I wanted to thank you all, and wish you all success, you are truely wonderful people.

Ok, that being said, I have decided to lower my final goal to 132. So now my focus is turned towards seeing the 130's again, well that and reaching my BLC goal of 134! I hope you are all having a great weekend!

    Congrats! and thanks for the comment on my SP. SP has been working great for me now that I've really committed to this. It's allowed me to take all the information I've learned from other programs and pull it all together here (for free!) I'm glad it's worked out so great for you.

    Congratulations! As time goes by and you continue to achieve your goals, your final number can and will probably change. There's always reassessment, especially when you're bolstered by that delicious feeling of accomplishment!

    Awesome job - keep on working and keep on believing in yourself! You will be at the finish line in no time : )
