In just 5 months....

Friday, September 25, 2009

Total loss for me so far is 42-1/2 pounds. That's getting close to half of my goal loss in just over 5 months. I'm not starving myself. I'm not depriving myself. I'm eating healthy foods that I enjoy. I can hardly believe it myself. This program works, if YOU work it. Stick to it, eat well, exercise hard, track your foods, keep sparking, read the articles, have some patience, and it truly pays off.

It is not always easy, but sometimes it IS. Life happens, ups and downs, but for me sticking with this more healthy lifestyle makes all the downs easier to deal with, and all the ups so much more enjoyable.

A side benefit of this is that my husband has adopted this healthy eating lifestyle as well. He has lost 25 pounds.

6 months ago, I never would have imagined this level of accomplishment.

    What a great reflection! Congratulations on your success! emoticon

    You know, you not only "work" the SP program, but you also give back by encouraging so many people on SP. Thanks so much for that. emoticon

    Oh, Nannie, I am so proud of you, of what you've accomplished. And talk about 'hitting the nail on head' you summed it all up what Spark is all about and how to make this weight loss journey work. Each and everyone of us have to figure that out, and you have, I have and others have, too...and look at what we've all accomplished so far. You are so right...it isn't easy all the time, but I find it is getting easier. And a huge WTG to your husband for losing 25 lbs. and you are the one who helped him make that happen...woohoo!!!
    We are all hand in hand on our paths looking to accomplish the first major goal on our walk together, our target weight! It will happen and oh the celebration we will have before we start our maintenance journey.

    Good for the two of you! It is exciting when you lose but when your spouse loses, too, that is double good. You guys keep on keeping on!
