i joined 9-28-08 with 80 pounds to lose in size 20 jeans and I made my goal to get back into size 7 jeans as of 2-14-10!! (((that's size 4, waist 27 in Lucky Jeans))) On 2-14-11 i celebrated my first anniversary of maintenance and still enjoy being at my goal weight!! i am now struggling to maintain my goal without going too far under.
I don't belong to a gym and I can't afford fancy foods so my weight loss is strictly due to lifestyle changes like walking everywhere I can, using dumbells at home, drinking coffee black with cinnomin instead of cream and sugar. And I owe much of my success to logging in here almost everyday, actively participating in the teams and blogging regularly.

Month 2 Sparkaversary: Lost 20 pounds and 11 inches!!
Month 3 Sparkaversary: Lost 23 pounds and 14 inches!!
Month 4 Sparkaversary: Lost 30 pounds and 19.75 inches!!
Month 5 Sparkav ersary: Lost 33.5 pounds and 23.5 inches!!
Month 6 Sparkav ersary: Lost 40.5 pounds and 22 inches!! (YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT i GAINED 1/2 INCHES BUT I'M WALKING WAY MORE)

Month 16 Sparkaversary: 68 pounds and 32 inches!!

In ways you can clearly see and in ways you'll never understand, your expectations become your reality. What you expect most sincerely and persistently, you experience.
All that is within you constantly works to meet the expectations you set for yourself and for your world. You will see, and hear, and touch, and taste, and learn, and achieve whatever you expect.

When those around you are filled with dismay, it is easy to expect the worst. Yet surprisingly, it is just as easy to expect the best when you simply choose to do so, and a whole lot more beneficial.

Begin each day with the confident expectation of specific achievements. At the end of the day, most of those expectations will have been met.

Expectation compels you to find a way. Expectation taps into the large and rich store of resources in your life.

Expect the best of yourself and of those around you. For you truly have the power to make those expectations real.

    Thanks for the congrats! We have been having great pool weather, actually it has been very, very hot. Cooled down some yesterday, was a nice day, and today was beautiful.
    Have been swimming in my pool every day for a good two weeks. Loving it. It was a very late start to the season, so I am making the most of it now.

    Who knows when it will change again. I already did my swimming today, but am going to go out in a minute and see if it feels like I want to get in again.

    Have a great week my friend.
