1-99 SparkPoints 3

Goal #1 Realized - Below 200 lbs. Today!

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Well, I guess when you least expect it...I've been hovering around 201 to 202 pounds for the last few weeks, and after what I considered a mediocre at best week of calorie intake and exercise, I was somewhat taken aback when weighing in today and fell below 200 lbs! To see 198.4 on that digital scale readout was a welcome sight!

I realize that it's just a number, and the journey continues, but it sure is satisfying to actually accomplish what you started out to do.

The SparkPeople website, but more importantly the SparkPeople Community was and will always be an integral part of this accomplishment and the journey onward.

    WAY TO GO GERRYB54!!! Keep it up; healthy and light is a fabulous goal. You will feel powerful and like you're living on a cloud even before you get all the way there. You CAN do it!! As one Sparker said, " Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels." I know, because I have experience it a zillion times that when the tasty thing is in front of your face you forget the goal of feeling slim. How can anything so troublesome be so dang strong?!!!

    Fantastic! Congratulations!! What a wonderful feeling!

    There is a huge psychological difference between seeing the first number as a 1 and as a 2 -- a moment to celebrate.
