I am Amazed, Awed and Grateful!

Saturday, June 21, 2008

Imagine my surprise - I am no longer a regular Sparker, but today I was receiving Spark Goodies and comments from people I do not know...just a short time ago I discovered that I am today's FEATURED MOTIVATOR - WOW!

I bless SparkPeople and my Spark friends every day!

I have continued to maintain my weight loss, still hovering at right around 144 pounds, (typically 1-2 pounds above or below) and it feels fantastic! I eat right almost all the time and exercise 4 - 5 days a week. I am fortunate to be able to maintain my weight without needing to weigh and measure all my food these days. While I was working at my program on Spark (it too me about 8 months to lose 62 pounds) I weighed and measured EVERYTHING!!!!

I do now get on the scale daily, and will adjust my intake for the day accordingly! I have also stayed in touch with some of my Spark Friends very regularly, and I think that helps me stay accountable too!

I will post some new pictures by the time I reach August 6th (which would be one year since I started on Spark)...

My friends - you CAN do this! Keep at it! You ARE worth it! Feeling fit, slim and trim is fantastic!

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by my page and congratulate me - I congratulate all of you who are trying!

I send you all {{{sweaty hugs}}} (I work out mostly by walking with Leslie Sansone, who calls us all "Sisters in Sweat") - Judi

    I'm so proud of you! You've been such an inspiration to me for months. You've helped me get through some rather dark and...fatty..times.

    Wow Judi, I didn't realize you got this great honor! I haven't been sparking for about a month myself - need to get back into it now that my daughters graduation is over and I can concentrate on myself again.
    Congrats to you - you so.....deserve it!

    Hey Judi:) my sparked friend! I am glad you blogged and nice to see you come back once in a while and let us know how things are going your way. I have been pretty busy with my daughter's wedding preparations and we are off to Frisco on July 8th and then, after the wedding to Mayo clinic, MN. We will be planning our move there by April of next year, if not sooner. It will be nice to get together with you, after we return home! Just let me know when and where in August!!!

    Congrats on being a motivator and of course, your achievement will stay with you forever just like a college degree, you will always inspire me my dear Judi. Way to go in maintaining your healthy lifestyle!!!!

    I am very inspired by your page. I have been a member since May 2007 but it's been bumpy and I am back at it. I also am 5'9 and I started at 244lbs. I am now down about 16lbs but 200 seems like a long way down the road. In the past I have not been able to make it-I get stuck and lose motivation. I will come to your page for motivation!

    You look and sound fantastic!
