New Year/ New Focus

Saturday, January 02, 2016

I have been on here for far to long and yet I am still here. Today I weighed in at 225 pounds so with the help of Sparks I have successfully lost and maintained a 60 pound weight loss. So why am I still here? I haven't reached my goals yet. Last year with a lot of nerves and fear of being unsuccessful I started my program to get my bachelors degree. Why was I afraid of being unsuccessful, I have always struggled in school. Part of it was I have a severe loss of hearing in both ears so no matter what I did I could not hear my teachers. I finally got hearing aides about 5 years ago. Another reason that I was never successful is I never truly applied myself. I sit her very proud to say that I started my program last almost a year ago and have finished 5 courses and my G.P.A is a 3.86. Never in my mind did I think I would ever be able to say that. Now that I have 2 jobs both of which I love and found my way to do well in school it is time to stop making excuses. I can do this. I don't want to set a goal for this year but I am hoping to lose as much as possible this year and hopefully finally be under 200 pounds for the first time in probably 15 years.

How will I do this? With the help of spark people and my friends. I wish you all the best of luck this upcoming year as we travel down this journey to a healthier life style.
