I have been here at Spark since 2009.The journey has had it's up's and downs. but I have finally found what works for me.I have tried numerous strategies ..trial and error.I joined the BLC and after the 2nd round I became Captain.
The friends I have made have kept me focused..even when I was having difficult times and not able to lose weight or stay on track the team still encouraged me.
After numerous attempts at "diets"and I have tried them all I decided I needed even more accountability.I needed to stand on the scale and have it written down for me I decided to join WW in Dec. It's too easy to see the scale..walk away..and say I'll start again.Knowing I have to get on the scale in front of the WW leader I know I can't pretend it doesn't matter.I have gained knowledge of my habits and have worked hard to change them.
Yesterday I got on the scale and it said 199.6!!This is a goal I have worked very hard to attain and seeing that was an amazing feeling.I know now that I can reach my goal.When I started and the scale said 270 I felt overwhelmed.So much to lose..but now 3 years later all the struggles are more than worth it.It took me a long time but through it I have changed the way I look at food and the way I view fitness.My life is different and I continue on this journey to becoming the best and healthiest I can be!!
Thank you to all my Spark-Friends for your support!!
