1.my belly isnt touching the steering wheel.
2.i have a brand new lap!lol!i never had a lap before.
3.i have to hold my pants up while walking through the store.
4.in my pics..i have a neck!!a neck!!not just a triple chin.lol!
5.i can do 30 jumping jacks in a row(w/out stopping).
6.i use to wear a size 28 in jeans..im now in 22!
7.i am not scared to show my panties to my hubby.(while wearing them!lmfao!)
8.can do an hour of cardio with out falling to the floor.
9.i can do a push up!
10.i can breathe easier.
11.i dont try to wear the biggest shirt i can find.
12.sex is definitely better !
13.i still feel like people are staring at me,but also there are those times when i just walk into a place,and i feel so good.im thinking to myself..ya thats right..i look good.lmfao! (not to often)
14.i can cross my legs when i sit down.
15.i remember back in high school while in gym class we had to stand with our feet touching,bend over ,and touch the floor.i never could,b/c of my belly!! NOW I CAN!
16.i never could of made it this far w/out Spark..in my life this kind of SUPPORT just doesnt exsist.
17.while shopping nothing goes into my cart w/out me reading the label.
18.i know now that i will definitely be able to watch our son grow up.fall in love..have a family of his own.
19.even though all of these things are AMAZING,theres one thing i regret..and thats why in the hell did i wait so long to do this.
20.once i reach my goal weight,i will still have many flaws..scars all over my tummy.so im hoping ill be able to write a blog saying that its ok,i think i look beautiful anyway.

all in all i have lost 62 lbs. i never thought i would make it.now i know i will..theres nothing stopping me!
i will always be a work in progress!
i know that this is sooo long,lol! im sorry.goodnight my spark family,

    Christina, I don't know how I missed this list but girl, you rock!!! I love it...because it so sums up the importance of enjoying the rewards of your journey. You have done a phenomenal job of kicking those pounds to the curb! Tell the hubby you have earned some new sexy undies and red heels to strut around in! You are a beautiful warrior woman and I appreciate the example you are putting out there for the rest of us!
    Love, Roxie (Vendetta)

    Great List!! I think the one about showing your panties to your husband and the better sex go hand in hand! heehee! It's amazing the little things we bigger girls appreciate and take note of. And don't kid yourself, if people are staring it is because you are a beautiful girl and you are glowing from all that exercise! Congrats on your success! You worked hard for it, enjoy it!

    Great blog!!

    I actually got emotional reading it.
    I keep telling people what a great site SP is, and I get that look like 'yeah sure'. People keep asking me how I am losing weight, thinking there is some magic pill. It is such a tough thing to do and I agree without Spark, I don't think I could do it either. There is such support (you included), that I know if I hadn't found this site I still would be 225 lbs and miserable.
    Have a great day.... you are an inspiration!!!

    I think this is a great an amazing blog. I am super proud of you and super excited that you are finding all the positives.

    How is your husband handling all of this? Did you have a talk with him, I still pray for you and him and hope he gives you the support you deserve.

    Wonderful to take account and see how far you have come. You are such a motivation to us in the battle. Thank you emoticon and Thank you!!!

    Amen to all of that! They may be little things but they make a big difference! Thanks so much for all the work you do for this challenge. You are awesome!!
