2.5 years and loving it.

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

November 1st. was my 2.5 year anniversary here at Sparkpeople.
I was busy last this week end and have time today to blog.
It also is wednesday and my weigh in day.
So as of today I have lost 162 pounds.... emoticon.
I have so many things I would like to say but will let any one who wants to go to my sparkpage and read what I post there. My gallery has pictures of where I started and where I am.
I am so amazed at my success that I have to remind myself that I'm only 30 pounds from my goal weight.
I have lost weight gained weight and lost it. I'm determined to never diet again. I have left the diet mentality behind. I decided in May of 2006 to follow what sparkpeople had to offer. I was sure I would fail again but had nothing but weight to loose, if it did not work so what, I'd try something else.
Who thought eating healthy and exercising would work. Learn portion control and exercising each morning would get me to my new healthy life style. But it did.
I have a host of emotions everyday. I worry about gaining weigh, can I stay on this healthy eating plan. Will something happen to my motivation ....So I will continue on my plan and meet each challenge head on, but this time not with food. I have learned new ways to handle my stress, fears, loneliness, and excitement. I now get up and walk, bike, read, and a hundred other things that make me happy. Happier than unhealthy foods.
I also learn to accept me no matter what that scale says. I get encouragement from looking good in my clothes, being able to run up and down the stairs, being able to get out and enjoy the world around me. I get strength from people who support me. I feel proud of myself for my accomplishments. I have learned to celebrate all my successes not just loosing the weight . I have gained so much more, having a healthy active body is worth working for.

Have a healthy and happy day.

    Congratulations to you dear. It is amazing what we can accomplish when we set our mind to do something, now to get my mind in gear but there is too much going on right now. My husband goes in Mon, the 10th, for prostate surgery and I have been all over the walls, trying to do things that need doin' so I don't concentrate at all on my food, although I do try to record what I eat each day (I am just grabbing something handy). Then I read your page and realize if you can do it, I can to. Thanks for being such an inspiration to the rest of us, for your positive thoughts even when things weren't always going down like you wanted them to. God bless you sweetie ~ you are very special emoticon

I am so excited. I cannot believe how different life is now than it was then. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK... Hugs, Tina

    While I try to think of new ways to control the disease in my legs, the numbers are jumping all over the scale.

    Yet you, my dear ~ with head held high and inch by inch, continue to loose weight!
