I reached my initial goal of 145 pounds. I need to get down to 140 so that will be my next goal. If I am really psyched I will go down to 133 pounds which would mean that I have lost 100 pounds over 2 years. Which as my mother says is a whole person. I am at the point where I need to buy new clothes because nothing fits! I didn't lose all of my weight on SparkPeople, but I lost the current 22 pounds on SP and it took me 7 months. It is the weight at the end of my loss and so it goes much slower despite daily exercise of 1 to 2.5 hours of walking, yoga, strength training and cardio. I have been good about my nutrition tracker, though I have had the occasional day when I was over my range for the day. It Happens! I am very pleased with my progress and hope I can make it down to the 133, but will go for 140 first. I find that smaller goals make me feel like I am making progress better. My personal rule has been that I only change my weight ticker when I have stayed at a weight for 2 days within a week, to be sure it is really off. I know I am eating much healthier and living a healthier lifestyle because of SP. It does happen even though it might not be at the rate we would like it. Determination and consistency are key.
