Proudest Things Along My Journey

Friday, April 23, 2010

It is hard to believe I have been on my Spark Journey a little over a year all ready. I started off great last year but fell off the wagon in May and struggled all year to get back on.

This year I knew that I had to get with it. In January I found myself in a very good place as far as my current health was concerned and knew that this was the time to get going.

So far I have lost a total of 46 pounds. Of course I am very proud of that. But there are other things too. The friends I have made at Spark are the best!! My teams are incredible. I have found a new family and that is one of the most special things in my life. I am starting to fit into some clothes that I haven't worn in years. But I think seeing my kid's reaction to my weight loss over Easter was amazing to me. They really want me to keep going. I also have to give thanks to God for helping me to finally realize that He has always been there to give me strength but it has been me that hasn't claimed it and hung on to it. Now I do~~every day!!!

Instead of dreding each day with diet and exercise I now look forward to healthy eating and exercise. And I know I am going to reach my goal this time. When that day arrives I will be the happiest person alive!!

Hugs, Mona

    You are doing such a fantastic job , know you are helping so many people and i am proud to think of you as a friend , I have had a rough couple of months ,having hit plateau after plateau and trying to figure out how to kick start my weight loss again and when i get down I just read your blogs and post to other people and it helps me to not give up; but to just say tomorrow is another day and maybe the pounds will start coming off again . But I am thankful that through it all I have not gained any just can't seem to lose any but I know that if I keep at it they are bound to come off sooner or later and I do have a thinner waist even though weight staying same

    God has really blessed you on your weight loss. Whatever you do keep on track so satan doesn't step in and take that blessing away. You are such a sweet person. I am so happy for you.
