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 13 years 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...

"Instead of wishing your life was different,
Wish for courage, strength, motivation,
and a great sense of humor.
With all those things,
you can change it yourself." -Unknown

Let's ROCK this Fall Challenge!

One of my favorite quotes goes something like "It's not about beating the other runners. It's about beating the voice inside you that wants to quit." This is great advice for all of us - even if you're not a runner. I'm certainly not. Let's not compare ourselves to others and instead focus on fighting ourselves. The voice that wants to eat more than we should. The voice that doesn't want to exercise. The voice that says it's not worth it. Because it IS worth it. YOU are worth it. Let's make the most of this fall challenge with Purple Passion and rock it.
