Default Good Things in 2006

I noticed this time of year tends to be a time of regret, or guilt about what didn't happen during the year...or what did happen over the holidays. I was thinking it might better to focus on the good things that did happen....

So feel free to jump in....

I found 3FC

I went from walking 1 mile and feeling like I couldn't move to walking 5 miles and looking forward to excercise.

I discovered an eating plan that works for me and I can stick too.

I lost 3 lbs. not much, but its the first time ever I have gotten on a scale and it was down instead of up.

I feel better about myself and my body feels better as well.

I found 3FC, too!

I bought a treadmill and it's been a godsend.

I've lost over 10 pounds.

I made it through yet another year without strangling anyone.

I discovered 3FC

I discovered superfoods and whole foods

I discovered how wonderful Trader Joe's is!

I lost 30 pounds

I look forward to losing the last 10 using all of the above plus my new exercise routine (went from walking 5 miles per day early last year to 30 minutes on my Nordic track daily and doing ab work and dumbbell work)

For the summer of 2006, I didn't have to buy all new summer clothes as I used to because the ones from the previous year were too tight. I'm hoping that for the summer of 2007, I WILL have to buy new summer clothes, but for a new reason: because the ones from last summer will be too BIG

Wyllenn, 55 lbs.! You should be proud

I jumped back on the wagon in October and I have lost 6lbs. since. I know thats not alot but I'm working on it. Gonna start excersising at the first of the year (thats a big step for me; I hate to excersise).

I'm proud I started on my "new life journey" this year and plan to kick it up a notch in 2007.

I changed my life on September 4, 2006 - a day I will never, ever forget. And I day I will celebrate every year as some kind of rebirth. I totally and completely changed my lifestyle. I went from eating everything and anything and being almost completely sedentary to eating healthy foods in normal sized portions and I added exercise and movement to my life. And because of it I lost the first chunk of weight that I have ever, ever lost in my 43 years on this earth - 70 lbs.

And of course I discovered 3FC, which is part of my lifestyle change as well.

I too haven't strangled or maimed anyone - as of yet anyway - still have a couple of days left.

Here's to the year 2007 . May it be bigger and brighter and more successful to us all!

Thumbs up

great thread!

Looking back, so many good things happened.

- 2006 was basically the year in which I lost over 40 lbs.
- I went on my first roadtrip...and wore a mini and a bikini for the first time
- I worked through so many issues w/my bf and every day still gets better, going into our second anniversary
- I got to see my three youngest sisters so many times, after being seperated for more than 3 years.
- Started a savings account w/my bf and actually got onto secure financial footing for the first time in my life.
- Got our car, a new apartment, and a pet. Feeling more grown up by the minute! *lol*
- Welcomed my nephew Aiden into the world and watched my neice Keira grow from a baby into a little girl who amazes me and fills me with love and awe every time I see her.

I'm sure there are more, but I'm going back to obsessing over what I'm going to wear for New Years. (I was having NIGHTMARES last night!)

These are so great to read!

Here are some things I did in 2006:

I found 3FC, which has been a REALLY big deal.
I changed my life on July 18, when I committed to losing weight.
I lost 57 pounds.
I went from walking 20 minutes to jogging 30.
I ran 2.4 miles at one time.
I worked out five or six days a week, usually for 45 minutes to an hour, after not working out for sooooo long.
I ran with my husband for the first time.
I lost enough weight to take my wedding ring off for the first time in years.
I got into a size 16 for the first time in years.

Wow, it feels really good to think about this stuff!!

Oh man, 2006 has been such a mixed year. I'm not sorry to see it go, because the first part was sucktastic. Panic attacks everynight, gained weight, you get the picture. What a difference the right meds, healthy eating, and exercise makes!!! Who knew?!

-Also discovered 3FC. The support here has meant more than words could possibly describe.

-Lost weight! I weigh about 10lbs less than I did this time last year!! Huge deal for me because this is the first year IN MY LIFE that I have weighed less now than I did last year. (There were those formulative years where I was supposed to get bigger, though!)

-Gave up the car and joined the gym.

-Paid every cent of my tuition by myself!! In cash!!

-Met some new people, renewed a friendship, and welcomed my best friends first baby, Anna, into the world. My first "niece!" Auntie Lisa is so proud!

Oh my, am I looking forward to 2007. It'll be the year when I rock!

Great thread!

I quit a job I disliked and started a business that's so much fun for me, it shouldn't be called "work"
Woke up to my weight problem and realized I had the strength and wherewithall to fix it
Cut heavily processed food from my diet
Lost 25 pounds OVER THE HOLIDAYS/MY BIRTHDAY! Woo hoo!
Started exercising again, and went from feeling like I could die after 5 minutes on the elliptical to 25 minutes without being at death's door
Made some great friends here at 3FC who give me the support I need to make this journey

My hope is that we all have an EVEN BETTER 2007!
