What exactly does it take?

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I often wonder how the sparkers who lost 100 lbs in 9 months did it. I really wonder what it takes to do that. Do they not mess up at all? Do they work out 6 days a week instead of the recommended 4-5? Do they follow the exact calories on spark, or do they eat much less?!

Ahhhh I'm pmsing, so don't mind me whining. I want so badly to do this the right way this time, and I want to make sure that I don't stop until I am sitting at 140-150 (I give myself the 10 because I do like some curves :x). That's 80-90 lbs from here. These people have lost MUCH more!

I will say this for myself. I started this saying "100 lbs!" and now the number is significantly lower than that. I can live with that. I can give myself a back pat. I just so badly want this, it is literally all I can think about other than school.

    Everyone's journey is different. I'm not at my 100 lbs yet either, but I will get there eventually. Once there I still have another 30 lbs to lose, so I know I'm a long way from goal, but not too far. Just do your best every day and if you stray, don't wander off too far. :)

    I know What you mean about wanting this badly, but we have to make ourselves realize that it takes times and it's not an easy journey. I think everyone messes up along the way, but the successful ones never give up. We have to just take it one step at a time; one day at a time. Good Luck with journey. I know we can do this!
