I am feeling pretty amazing, since I made my weight loss goal.
In six months I lost 30 pounds.
I am grateful to all my Spark Buddies who encouraged me along the way. Not to mention my Weight Watchers group, we all laughed together, cheered each other on and on some days were disgusted together.
Not doing this alone has been priceless. On days when I wondered if I'd ever see 160, I would log in to Spark People and visit my friends pages and get the shot in the arm I needed. And seeing the photos of so many successes, wow, it's hard to even relate it. All I can say is after viewing them, I was ready to go further with more determination.
I mean I would spend literally hours devouring the pages that spurred me on. I have to say thanks. I don't want to start listing names, because I may miss someone, but all my Buddies should know they share in the victory of the achievement.
This what I wanted to look like at 160, I did this virtual pic when I weighed 175#
Here I am now at 160....pretty close, huh?
Someone told me to save a pair of pants to demonstrate the difference ....here ya go!
Now here are some "vanity pics", just showing off what God gave me. I want to note that I think this body is pretty awesome for a 56 yr. old grandmom. Just a note, my daughters and granddaughter can now fit Granny's jeans. Too much!!
I am a "little obsessed" with body dresses now, though I won't wear some of them out the house
Now here's the best part....I am down to wearing between an 8 & 10. But, I purchased one six!
I know weight loss is not just about wearing cute clothes.
Since I lost the weight my Dr. has taken me off blood pressure meds. My physical
and routine tests all show normal and healthy levels!
I have more energy, my legs and knees are not as tired as they were, I am exercising and lifting more weight. I know it only gets better!
