If I can do this anyone can.....

2010: Not to bad this time around. I went on the Medifast diet and dropped 21 pounds. It was great, but a little pricey. If you stick with it, it really works. The only problem is I went off it about 4 months ago. I just wanted to eat normal foods again, but I packed on 13 pounds that I lost. Of course, I hate like a litte stuffed piggy! It did teach me some things that are very useful (when I use them that is). The biggest being portion control & healthy choices. So, I am going to ...

It did teach me some things that are very useful (when I use them that is). The biggest being portion control & healthy choices. So, I am going to incorporate what I learned from there into this program and see how it goes. At the moment I am losing the water weight from all the junk I ate over Easter. I lowered my goal weight by 5 pounds also. I hit 135 on my last diet and thought I could stand to lose a little more. Anyway, if I can help anyone just let me know. I will see about adding some more updated photos. also.

2009: OK, I jumped ship! It has taken some time, but I have finally found my way back on board. I really over did it on the holiday overload, even before. I just remember mid summer I was so burned out on exercise and watching what I ate and still not seeing my goal weight, I gave up. This year I decided to try again. I may not see my goal weight in the near future, but I will see a smaller me. I am starting a little slower this year and hoping slow and steady wins the race. I am trying to avoid burnout.

2008: I am the mother of two boys and a wife to an ever bigger boy. ha ha I have battled the weight issue since the boys came along (maybe a little before). Whenever I reach my goal I start back to the bad habits. The older I get the harder it becomes to reach my original weight. For my height and build 135 is a good weight. I hate diets and diet programs...to me that always seem like a short term fix. I have always been more DIY type. I think that is my biggest problem. I just want to do it and go my merry way. The thought of being accountable to someone else is a bit unnerving for me (as far as the weight issue goes).

This is it, my attempt at being a part of a bigger plan, letting others in on my journey. My life is hectic with work, home, kids, but I am sure this is nothing new to most of the people here.

I know I can do this….lets see how bad I want it.

The scripture that can get me through anything:

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to and for those who love God and are the called according to His purpose.

Just remember we all have a purpose! and not matter what happens God will use it for His good.

You are important. You matter.

Just dropping in to say hello and find out how you are doing.

Also would like to say emoticon on your weight loss so far. You only have 8 more lbs to go. That is awesome. Keep up the good work.

I encourage you to drop by the families with special needs team page and join in on some of the new challenges that are in progress.

As Always Yerdua (TL)

I'm doing OK, Shane is going to peace officer training this fall, so he wants to get into shape. It's easier getting to the gym and cooking healthier when he wants it too!
