Me and the King about a year and a half ago.





Me and my family last summer. At this point I was the heaviest I have been in my life.

Jezika's Journey

Often times in life we get to a point where we look ourselves and we aren't happy with what we see. That may be physically, mentally or spiritually - or a host of other complaints. The often heard adage that "Life's a Journey, not a Destination" can be followed right up with Greg Anderson's "Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."

Often times in life we get to a point where we look ourselves and we aren't happy with what we see. That may be physically, mentally or spiritually - or a host of other complaints. The often heard adage that "Life's a Journey, not a Destination" can be followed right up with Greg Anderson's "Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."

Sometimes I look at weight loss as something that just has to be done. It's not fun and it's not pretty. It's hard and grueling and just plain horrible at some points. But focusing more on the fun that can be had while trying to improve one' s body and life will improve the outlook.

Right now in life, I'm a mother of three, a full time student, I manage an apartment complex with my husband and we try to keep active in our church and community. Life is just plain busy! That is all there is to it! But I keep trying. And that is the most important part of weight loss. Don't give up, it will eventually happen.

It is hard being a mother, trying to find the time to take care of yourself while taking care of everyone else in your life. But let me tell you, taking care of yourself is the first and foremost important thing you can do for your family. It's not selfish. A well balanced body and mind and spirit. benefit everyone around you. From playing with your kids, to being emotionally supportive to your loved ones and still keeping yourself strong.

Fitness Minutes: 4,394

My Goals:
I want to get down to a healthy body weight for my frame and height. I don't really care about being thin so much as being healthy. After my third child, getting the weight off is becoming increasingly harder. Somebody always wants my attention, or I have an errand to run. Finding "me" time has been really hard.

My Program:
About three years ago we changed the way our family ate. After reading the You: The owners manual book we found that we didn't really pay attention to what was in the food we ate, so we changed. We are still sticking strong to healthier food choices.

Personal Information:
From the great green state of Washington, living in Tucson... can we say culture, not to mention vegetation, shock! Currently attending the U of A while raising my family.

Thanks so very much JANTWO. I am actually still waiting to get my Wii and Wii Fit Plus, but I figured I might as well sign up early to get some good motivation. Thanks again and I'll definitely get busy on the boards (both of them :-) )
