Progress Report: You Sparkers were right!

Friday, August 26, 2011

End of my second week as a Sparker

After being downright discouraged by my lack of weight loss (although I tried to laugh it off), I can finally say that I lost a pound. But that's only half the story: what I think is making the difference in the way my clothes are fitting is the inches lost--I've lost 1 inch off my waist, 1 off my hips, and 1 off my thighs (I hardly had it to lose there). None lost off the arms (I tend to see results of weight training first in my arms.)

I am super pleased with the Spark program. Yes, I've spent a lot of time planning meals and tracking each one--but I must say, I was rarely hungry. And I've pushed my limits with the exercise: walking 4-5 miles when I'm not jog/walking (which is about to become all jogging), Bootcamp Shape-up (a video each day); Yoga video, cycling (the days before I jog/walk--have to save those knees). Whew! Can you see why I was expecting results! And I got them.

My picture is from 2009 showing me the way I want to look in that outfit again. The blouse doesn't fit as loosely yet, but the pants are zipped up and hooked. Not so 2 weeks ago.

Thanks to all of you for cheering me on when I was whining about no weight loss. I think I've figured out what's important now.

    Outstanding! 3" ---that's a LOT in a very short time! And your work outs sound very ambitious!


    Sometimes we think we're hungry when the body is actually thirsty. Drink a big glass of water & wait 20 min. and see if you're still hungry. Lots of times you're OK!


    You're makin' big tracks toward your goal! Yahoooooooooo!

    BTW, love the photos of family...what a handsome group! Cutey grandson!
