One Year Later...

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Hello everyone. I have been off and on-line for a few weeks now. I am in the process of moving from one house to another and my computer is temporarily in storage, so I do not have the daily access I normally have. Hopefully next week all things will be back to normal, including my lifestyle. I have not been doing so good on the eating and exercising. My world is currently UPSIDE down...but life goes on. Just have to pick myself up and get started AGAIN!!. Well I have been at this lifestyle change for one year. I went to visit my doctor today and everything looked G-O-O-D!! He actually took me off another one of my meds. Told me not to take my blood pressure medicine for one week, then start back at a lower dosage. I will remain on my thyroid medicine though. I have another appointment to see him in two months which at that time we will determine if I need to continue my blood pressure medicine at all. I am so excited. My total weight lost to date is 98.5 pounds. My BMI currently is 26.10 and my BFI is currently 27.990. I did not start my measurements until December 2008 so not really sure what they were at the beginning. But from Dec '08 until June '09 I have lost an amazing 36.50 inches!!! It is awesome!! I am now wearing a size 10 bottom (down from a 22/24) and size medium top (down from a 22/24)!! I am just overwhelmed with how I feel AND look. I received SOOOO many compliments each day I just am amazed that 'I' could ever receive just one. I tell my story to all who want to listen. It is just a great feeling and I have so much energy, who would have known that I would feel this great!! My doctor praises me in my successes. He tells me I have gone about it the RIGHT way and that I should not have any setbacks as I did not have surgery to reach this point. He tells me I am healthy without all the deficiencies normally seen in one who has had surgery. I spent an hour in his office this morning listening to his praises to my success...I in turn praised SPARK PEOPLE to him and how it helped me and as to how I would not have been this successful without it!! Who knows...I may even TAKE and post pictures now. Might even look up someone who has some of my hand-me downs to take a picture with....THANKS TO ALL who supported me in my journey and to the man who I could not have done this without....my leader and faithful provider, Lord, Jesus Christ....amen
