I recently lost 48 lbs, and my husband and I renewed our Wedding Vows for our 25th Anniversary in January. I am happy to say that I was able to wear a dress I would have never dreamed of getting into. In fact, I had two dream dresses. One that was toooo... large to wear by the date of the party and the one that fit perfectly.

I now have to groups of women that meet weekly. The first group started 15 weeks ago and have lost 130 lbs. The new group was started last week and I am proud to say, I KNOW THEY WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE THEY ARE DOING THIS FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON OF ALL THEMSELVES AND NO ONE ELSE.

Reach out and help someone, It will help you maintain your weight loss and make someone else's day !!!! What a thrill

UPDATE: i now have two groups that meet, and I am so proud of both of them. My SOS group will be 4 in January and is doing great. We had a hugh garage sale yesterday and included one of my members from my new goup that meets on Tuesday Nights at no charge at Christ Church in Nashville. Wow, we had so much fun and made money. Weight Loss has to be fun because it is not a diet but a lifestyle.

My new group is called Lifestyle Alterations Weight Loss Group. It is just that a support group that is open to anyone that needs to lose or maintain their weight Loss. The cost is FREE and we meet on Tuesday nights, But the benefits are great. My new group began January 4, 2011 and I am proud to report that my group has lost over 130 lbs. We have had field trips to the grocery to learn how to compare food labels to eat healthier, took a 7 mile walk (you have to exercise to lose), and we celebrate every 25 lbs as a group. I have a great life and GOD has blessed me and I do everything for his glory. I pray he allows me to continue receiving and giving back.

June 10, 2011: Tonight is about me....that is rare, however, I have to practice what I preach. This last 2 weeks I have and I am so proud of myself and the results. Since May 31, 2011, I had lost 9.4 lbs as of today. YAHOO!!!!!! Now about everyone else, IF I CAN DO SO CAN YOU. YOU CAN PROBABLY DO IT BETTER. EVERYONE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE REACH THEIR GOAL AND HELP ME REACH MINE. LIVE IS GOOD

June 26, 2010 Life is incredible when everything works togother and your goal is in site.
I walked 6.35 miles in Percy Warner Park in Nashville with a friend (see along with many other Nashvillians. It was so rewarding and I am so proud of my friend, Paulette that is in my SOS group for walking with me. Support, love and encouragement is so important in every aspect of our lives. The scale was down a half a pound today and I cant wait for Monday and Tuesdays weigh in. I think I get more out of the meetings than those that attend them. I am BLESSED and thank God for every blessing he has given me. I am only 16.2 miles away from my goal at this point and approximately 35 miles away from completing the 100 miles by July 9, 2011. I know I am going to get there without a doubt and cannot wait to see what God has planned after that.
My lesson on Tuesday night was on Boundaries, and I used Joyce Myers book 100 ways to simplify your life. I also had the pleasure of hearing from Helen regarding how it had helped her to avoid eating when she really wasn't hungry, and how it effected her day. Thank you Helen for the feed back it made a difference in my week, and will continue to do so. I am so grateful that you are in my Tuesday night group. So with that in mind, I hope everyone has an incredible week.

    I love your Sisterhood Group. My sister started a group she named, "The Finger Sisters" with a bunch of her friends. It was so fun! Keep up the great work.

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
