Wow, I never thought that this day would come & it actually came before the end of 2011, so despite s ending the year with a break in our home on 12/24/11, it still ended on a good note.
It has been a long, hard journey & although I did not follow Spark people's menu plan, I did utilize all the other tools & having the message boards & support of nice people along the way certainly helped! In fact, even though I reached my goal of 110 on the week before Christmas, I continue to log in & do the same things I always did. I guess it is ingrained in me as a habit now & I see that as a good thing...
Going into the middle of january now & I am at 109, so guess I am doing well at maintenence too!
Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I ever weighed 146 pounds, but I did & even though it took much too long to get it gone, I feel with all I've learned & the escellent diet I follow now, I will never have a weight problem again & that brings me much happiness.
The only "down" side ( & not really too down), is that I now have to buy new clothes, as even my smallest ones no longer fit!
Now, off to get my morning coffee... emoticon
