This was on Sept. 2010. I was at my lowest weight in years, 185. I plan on getting back to that!




This was in March '11. I am about 200-205 right here and in a tight size 16.




At my LARGEST 230 lbs, spring of 2009. This was my WAKE UP PICTURE no doubt!

I am a 31 year old teacher who has a 3 1/2 year old son. Currently, my husband and I are trying to get pregnant with a second one. I would like to focus on eating healthy so that when we do get pregnant I will not gain the 60+ lbs like I did last time. Currently, I hope to lose 5 lbs in the next month.


I LOVE THIS....Overcoming obstacles one at a time

Your goals may not come easy. There is no accomplishment without work, and no "win" without something to beat. It's easy to get discouraged when roadblocks appear--in fact, it's only natural. You've invested time and emotion into creating the perfect plan, and then something has to come along and muck it all up. Sometimes, though, all you have to do to beat that barrier is to get back up and move forward again. Obstacles are like the Wizard behind the curtain--they're a lot less intimidating once you see them up close. Next time you take a step back, don't let guilt pile it on top of your previous "stumbles." Just take two steps forward and you're still farther along than you were before. It doesn't matter how many walls you face. You only have to get the better of that last one.

    Hey there! Just wanted to let you know that the San Antonio Spark team will be starting a new eight-week challenge to help people stay on track - or get on track - over the holidays. It's called the DESIGN Challenge, and it's simple to do, with easy, basic steps to help us more forward. It should also help us all to build our support system and make friends at the same time. I hope you'll consider joining us! Here's the link if you're interested:
