Letting it slip away . . .

| March 5, 2006 | 2 Comments

I am pretty close to a milestone here.

I gave birth to my son, Will, a little more than 7 months ago. After a tumultuous pregnancy where I gained about 68 pounds, I dropped 34 pounds in the first three weeks after birth. Since then it’s been a constant struggle. But onward and upward, right?

Well back to the milestone. In late August, I joined SparkPeople, an online diet and health site. I got off to a very slow start with weight loss, losing approximately two pounds a month until recently when things really started moving for me.

So, in weighing myself this morning, I discovered that I am a half-pound away from having lost 20 pounds with SparkPeople. YAY!

I love the program on the site. It has really helped me to reassess how I eat and what I eat, not to mention when I eat. As a result, I feel healthier and happier than I did before. I still have quite a few pounds to go until I reach my goal weight, but I am confident I will get there by following the Spark.

Anyway, I just wanted to celebrate a bit here. I can’t believe I have really lost this much weight!

    Thanks! I am not quite ready for the shopping spree but soon enough I will be. I want to lose some more before I go and get some hot new duds.

    No problem on the referral. This is the first time I’ve dieted and felt like I know what I am doing and understand, so I thought you would appreciate the site.
