Thank You SparkPeople & Spark Friends

You can not imagine how excited I was this morning when I stepped on the bathroom scale and it showed me that I lost another 3 1/2 pounds. I was truly surprised because I have not been able to exercise for the past week because of an awful flare up of my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was expecting to have gained a pound or two back. Anyway, I can proudly report that since I joined Sparkpeople about 7 weeks ago, I have lost 13 1/2 Pounds. Yipeeeeeeeeee!
Not only did I loose more weight, but also 1 inch from my waist and 1/2 inch off of my hips. It is so exciting to see the progress I am making. For the last week I have been trying clothes on that I haven't been able to get into for some time. I made it back into my size 14 jeans that I could not wear in over a year. Yesterday I wore a pair of dress slacks that I couldn't wear in over a year and today I am wearing a pair of capris that I haven't worn for at least a year and half. I am so grateful to all the wonderful people who have encouraged me, inspired me, and challenged me to keep going. I am truly making progress, So happy I signed up for SparkPeople. It is the best thing I have done for myself in a very long time.
