Reward!

Friday, July 18, 2014

I am in a 6 month bet to lose 10% of my weight. I currently just passed the 5 month mark, on track. I am doing this bet with a Spark Friend, whom I've never met, but email daily. Once the 6 month weigh in is done, OUR reward is to meet each other in St Louis! Neither of us are from STL, I am from WI and she is from KY. I just bought my plane ticket yesterday for our meeting. No going back! I'm all in! This was the best motivation for both of us! Our 10% loss is by no means the end of our weight loss and we even plan on attending a gym on our trip to STL. I thank SP for having groups like the Accountability Partnership Group, where I met my Spark Friend. Without that, I wouldn't be as far along as I am now. She has helped and supported me for about a year now and vice-versa. We feel like we already know each other and continue to give each other ideas when the chips are down and give positive feedback on great things that we've done. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Feeling out of sorts today

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

You know when you have a "different" kind of feeling, like you or something isn't quite right. I feel that way today. I feel ok, have been exercising and eating really good, but something seems to make me kind of on edge today. Maybe it's all PMS or something like that. Anyway, I'll get back to myself soon and this "weird" feeling can leave anytime. emoticon

Going to be that kind of day

I am finding out that if you spill 1/2 of your weight loss shake, you will consume only half the calories! emoticon

Just what I needed!

Monday, May 12, 2014

I have been having a terrible last few weeks, as far as keeping my focus on my weight loss. Oh, it's in my head, but the stress of certain things has really kept me from making the best choices. The "Just what I needed" comes from the best Spark Buddy EVER! I sent an honest message about being defeated and what does she do? She kicks me in the butt and says "don't give up". The honest and heartfelt message means so much to me. I'm not giving up! After reading her message I am more determined to keep moving along. One of the things that is really motivating me, is that I will get to meet this FANTASTIC person later this year, once I meet my goal. I have never met her before, but her and I are doing this reward later this year (Aug or Sept). We both have to meet our goal to meet. I don't know how I managed to have such a wonderful person come into my life and know just the right words to say and the right way to kick my butt into gear. Thanks Spark Buddy!!! emoticon

This is a first

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

For the very first time in my life, I took a picture of myself I like. I think this is a HUGE comment, since I've hated how I look my whole life. The picture isn't of my whole body, so that helps! But I am making progress at accepting myself for who I am and what great things I am doing for ME! And you know what, I don't care if anyone else in the WORLD likes my picture, but I do! Have a great Sparky day! emoticon
