1 Year Weigh IN

Monday, August 12, 2013

Tomorrow is my 1 year weigh in and I would be lying if I said that I am not nervous. In fact, I am so nervous I have been having an upset stomach. I have come so far this last 12 months, and I know that I have changed in so many ways, but I still feel like I could have done better. My goal was to lose 100 pounds, and things started off great in the direction of that goal. But somewhere down the line I hit a plateau, I fell a bit of track for a few weeks of taking this class for school, and then I just lost momentum. But I have recently gotten completely back on track and am happy about it. I have gotten stronger, I am doing things that I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever be able to do, I have lost a total of 70 pounds and am still working on it. I now have a new goal and that's to have reached my 100 pounds by 2014. I know that with hard work and dedication I can do it. Although I am nervous about tomorrow, I am also excited, because I am not where I want to be, but I for sure am not where I used to be. I am in a wedding in a few weeks and I feel confident and excited that I lost the weight and am able to get the dress tailored to fit my body. I will not let the nervousness of tomorrow stop me from feeling complete excitement for tomorrow. I have made a true friend and brother in my trainer. He keeps me accountable and encouraged. Thank you Jesse!!!!! But tomorrow is the big day. Woosah and breathe. emoticon

    Wow! Your emotions are really wrapped up in this weigh-in thing. Sometimes I feel like that too.

    I know how tough it can be and how hard we have worked, trust me! I've been on Spark 5 years now and on a plateau or *maintaining* (depending on your outlook) for 2 years. I could not for the life of me have lost 100 lbs in a year. Weight loss takes time and time is what we all have until we are dead.
    But worrying about how much you have lost to the point that you have an upset stomach isn't necessary. In fact it's pointless. You weigh what you weigh whether you know it or not, right? It's all in the "knowing."
    But hey, it's done and over with and you seem happy about the results.

    thank you all so very much. you are all so very encouraging. the weigh in went well. although I didn't meet my 100 pound goal, I went down another 1% of body fat and I gained 1% muscle. I am definitely getting stronger and able to do so much more. I am now able to make short term goals to get me to my long term goal, so that feel good. I am grateful for all of my fellow Sparkers, because you help keep me going. thanks again, and take care emoticon

    Think positive and keep setting goals. You've accomplished quite a bit in one year even if you didn't reach your goal. Sometimes slow and steady is better. Congrats and keep up the good work!

    Even if you did not meet your 100 pound goal you have come a long way! You are probably very different than when you started a year ago! Think of how few people can say that!

    You are awesome, no doubt about it, donot think negative, just about your positive new life style, we all mess up some times, so shake it off, and go for your goal, you can do it.

    Congratulations on making it as far as you have. Don't dwell on the past for we cannot change what has past. Only focus on the future and how great of a person you are! emoticon
