Sheila's Journey

I am losing 125 pounds. I have lost 74 already and only have 51 to go! I no longer think it's too hard to lose weight - that is a lie I've told myself for too long. The truth is being fat is too hard. It hurts too much and I'm done with it. I will change it. I am strong and I am capable! I'm on my way and I'm not about to stop. This time is different! I have found what I needed to make permanent changes in my life.

My first thanks goes to my Father in Heaven that has ...

I have found what I needed to make permanent changes in my life.

My first thanks goes to my Father in Heaven that has opened the doors and led me to the places I needed to help me make the changes I so desperately prayed for. My second thanks goes to Spark People for giving me the tools and the people in my life that inspire and support me. I love Spark People!!!

Yes, I have had really weird health problems for the last 3 years. If you're interested in reading about them, they are on my blog entitled "My health...The really, really long story". When I first started Spark, that was my identity. Some poor lady that has health challenges and had to be in bed for a long time. Boo hoo. Well yes, I had them. I still have some of them... SO WHAT!!! That's not where my weight problem started. Everyone has challenges. Everyone has excuses. There is no such thing as a valid excuse! I'm serious!! They are all just lies we tell ourselves to pacify ourselves. All the while we are destroying ourselves emotionally and physically. Even though I couldn't walk doesn't mean I couldn't have eaten well.!!! We are NEVER without choices!

So now I've changed. I'm eating correctly and exercising ever single day. My weight is dropping and I will be achieving my goal. It's as simple as that. I will do my part for the rest of my life and my body will follow. No excuses. If I do my part, the weight will come off. If it takes a year, so be it. If it takes 2 years, so be it. The scale doesn't rule my decisions to eat. It's a lifestyle change.


I'm on my way and you can't stop me!!!

My Goals:
I am in the process of releasing 120 pounds from my body - I don't want to lose it because then I might be able to find it again.


My Program:
I am doing the Prism diet...no sugar, flour, pasta, bread or potatoes for the first 6 weeks. I feel better than I have in my life. Processed sugar is sooooo unhealthy. It is a drug. Get it out of your life!



Personal Information:
I live in the most beautiful place on earth (if you like sagebrush, blue skies and sunshine). I am a mother of 5 and a very young, hip grandmother of 4. I'm madly in love with my husband after all these years.

Other Information:
I am finding strength I never knew I had. I have a strong body and an even stronger mind. No more excuses!!!

Are you still following the PRISM program? Saw you were part of that group. Would be great to make the group active!

Now close your eyes and repeat after me...

Today I AM the priority!
Today I have decided to take the path of change.
Today I CHOOSE to improve my quality of life.
Today I am a success, even if it is only for today!
Today I am BEAUTIFUL!!
Everyday is MY Today, because I am just that wonderful!!!

You are looking great!!!

Congratulations on all of the weight that you have lost so far!!
I am very excited for you!!!

I am back and ready to take care of me. I am no longer breast feeding so I now have no excuses! I have had a bad year for stress with 2 children in the hospital and a sudden move 3.5 months ago.

But on a good note I have kept off the first 10% of weight that I have lost and I am 5 pounds from my second 10% weight loss! I am on the right path and have never looked back. But I am done with the slow pace! I can now get a move on! :)

I want to lose 50 pounds more before my daughter's Make-a-wish trip in June 2012 to Disney world!. I look forward to getting to know you again as I restart my journey of weight loss!

I hope things have been well for you!
Talk with you soon!
Brenda
