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. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
