Hey, I am Barbara, thanx for stopping by. ;o)
Here we go again!! I really love being on this weightloss Journey!! NOT!!!! LOL

I recently turned 56, I will not be like a Helicopter Hovering and getting nowhere, SO I am ready to take off!!

I have reset my teams in random order, These are my favorites,
1.)100 Club 2.)QuickFireChallenge Hula-Hoop Challenge 4.)Urban Rebounding!! Lets Bounce!! and 5.) Jump Rope Challenge 6.) C25K - Running for Beginners

But I am willing to try, try, again and if you don't succeed try again!! I once had this on a shirt!! Wonder where that shirt went.

I have met so many wonderful friends on this journey!! Who have lost more weight than I!! And I am jealous!

Ok enough about everyone else this was supposed to be about me!
So here goes, I joined sparkpeople many years ago, my name was Babbadean, and for some unknown Stupid reason I canceled and started over again... OH well

I was a thin kid never overweight till I was like 17 I think I stopped growing and grew the other way, then I joined the AF right out of HS, met my wonderful DH got married, our first bundle of Joy, J.P. A Boy, was born 9 months and 9 days later, that is when I got thin again, I only gained 15 and 1/2 pounds and I even fit into my old clothes to go, home, lost 9 first trimester!! Not FUN!!

Then 2 and 1/2 yeas later our next 2 bundles of joy came, Christopher and Joshua ,so yes I am a MOM of 3 Sons LOL, I gained 32 and a 1/2 pounds my first trimester, I lost 11 pounds which put me at 116 pounds, though I could not fit into my clothes on the way home it did not take me long... I was thin until I hit about 42 when I stopped waitressing, got to the point where I really hated people, and that is not good when waiting tables!! So now fast forward 14years I am now 50 pounds heavier!!

So Here I go again STARTING ANEW!! I know ya'll are tired of me saying that as I am tired of saying it...
thanx for reading wish me luck!!

So here is what I am going to do!!
1) 10 Minutes of Hula-Hooping, 20 sec. HIIT, 40 sec. Just Hooping
2) 10 minutes of my Rebounder
3) Drink 64 Oz. of water!
4) 10 Minutes of a Spark Video
5) Jump Rope 5 minutes every Day, thanx to the Jump Rope Challenge.
6) C25K every other day

My Goals:
To be able to fit into my size 10 dress!!
Which I am getting closer too!!

And My Wii Mii, will no longer tell me I am Overweight!!
Can't wait for this!!
