New Year ... a look back.
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
The new year came and I haven't thought much about the old year ... til I checked out my weight tracker. You see, in past years I would enter my weight, lose some weight, gain some weight, get discouraged, stop coming to SparkPeople, get motivated again, come back and have to start over with a new tracker weight because I'm way over what the last entry was. Last November as the holidays approached I neglected SparkPeople because I was too busy. In January, I started back up and realized I didn't have to start over, because my weight was right on track!!! Not only that, but I realized I haven't had to start over at all in the past year!! I've been steadily, but slowly going down. I can proudly say I have lost 22lbs. over the past year and NOT GAINED IT BACK!!!!!!! Now, 22lbs may not seem like much, but when one considers there's been no weight gain (except the occasional 'womanly' gain of a pound or two, which comes right off after a few days), that is a great accomplishment! I think this is the first time in 30 years that I've kept weight off for a whole year. God is so good and I give Him all the praise for healing me and keeping me on track. I love Him so much!!! Thanks to all my Spark friends who have encouraged me over the past few years. It really makes a difference to have people who understand.
