4th Month on Sparks
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
I'm a little late on posting this...been trying to each month so I can mark my accomplishments. BUT I have been on Sparks over 4 mths now. In fact I just noticed that I've moved from Stage 3 to 4 on Sparks. I was reading through it and it said I've been here 18 weeks now...wow. I can't believe it. I still have motivation and am still reaching my goals every month. I'm still exercising most every day, eating healthy and at the low end of my range. I'm still doing it! I think I really have made the switch from feeling like I'm doing something temporary to reach a certain weight to knowing this is my new lifestyle...for life and I'm so ok with that. In fact it's great! I've had a couple of frustrating weeks this month where I lost nothing *maintained* but I didn't let that derail me either. Before I so would have! I just kept doing what I'm doing knowing the blasted scale would catch up with me. And it will!
I'm not only losing pounds and getting healthier, but I'm gaining self confidence and self esteem. Something I was losing by leaps and bounds. That in itself makes everything I'm doing worth it. I AM worth it.
