Success - For the First Time in a Long Time!

I weighed myself at mom-in-law's yesterday - I've lost 10 lbs!

That's not an amazing amount in and of itself, as I joined SparkPeople and began this quest 6 weeks ago. But....I feel that I am making more changes than just taking the pounds off; the sensible eating and getting healthier is becoming a little more natural.

Like most of us here, I've lost weight before, here and there - and it comes back because I feel so deprived and unable to change habits.

Right now I feel as though I am doing really well at making lifestyle changes and I think that's a huge part of the battle.

SparkPeople isn't just about "me me me." It's about supporting one another. I want to thank everyone who takes a moment to lend support to each other, whether it's by responding with a comment or just reading and thinking about the health of others, as well as their own.
