HAPPY SPARKVERSARY TO ME - AND THANKS TO YOU!
Tuesday, January 05, 2010
Today I am celebrating my one year Sparkvesary. A year ago, when I started my journey, I had visions of conquering this weight loss battle by losing 131 lbs by today. A totally unrealistic goal which I came to terms with sometime in the 6th month. In a way I'm happy it is taking me longer to reach my goal. I am learning so much about myself along the way. I know what I need to do this year and am looking forward to the day my tracker says 100 lbs down. For today, I am enjoying the rewards of my efforts. In the past year, I have gone from dreading exercise and any extended time walking to being able to move around so much easier. I am wearing jeans. I haven't worn jeans in over 30 years. I have gone down 5 sizes and on the verge of 6. In my heart I truly want to succeed, and with my head on the same page, I know I will. My goal for 2010 is to sit on the floor on Christmas morning and open gifts with my grandchildren. My second goal will be getting back up :) I look forward to 2010 with a smile on my face and a warm place in my heart for special Spark friends. Thank you!
