If you ever watch soccer there is an announcer that drags the word goal out to get the most effect from it. That's what I was doing.
I reached my goal of 145 lbs, .
I set that goal last year on May 17, 2010, I was 285 lbs. That was the day I set up my Spark page.
On my photo page there are some pictures of me at 333 lbs, the weight I was on Jan. 1 2010. When I embarked on my weight loss journey .
It took me 591 days , or 17 1/2 months to lose 188 lbs.
Here is a self photo taken today,
I am now wearing size 8 jeans, medium size top, and I weight 145 lbs.
Everyday when I get up I am so happy with my renewed body. Life is so much more enjoyable , when I am not carrying around those extra 188 lbs.
That 188 lbs , is a good sized man. I think Titan gets heavy when I have to carry him to long. And he only weight 8 1/2 lbs. Titan is my dog, a Yorkie.
Now that I have reached the original goal I set, I am going to set new one of 135 lbs. Will see if I can reach that by Xmas.
I have said if I do lose more , fine. , But if my body likes this weight , I don't lose any more I will be fine with that too. I have accomplished what I set out to do.
I have learned to eat healthy.
I have learned that exercise is important to good health and to weight loss.
Along the way I have lost the weight that was slowly killing me.
I have meet some wonderful people here on Spark.
I have learned many things about nutrition and fitness that I did not know.
I have come to depend on what Spark has to offer and I'm definitely not ready to quit or even slow down on my Sparking".
Just because I have reached this goal , doesn't mean the game is over.
I am in this for life. I will always have to be aware of what I am eating and how much. Though it does get more natural and easy as time passes.
So my friends I will end this blog with a thought for the day:
"The power to shape my life lies in my own hands . I'll be careful not to give it away."
Take care,
Peace and Love, Tisha emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
