I'm a Christian mom of two young adults, aiming to lose 40 lbs. with the help of my True Blue team's support, and lots of prayer! I've stumbled over the last year in my efforts to reach my goals, but this is a new year with a fresh chance to set a course to achieve those goals. Today (1/12/13) is the new Day 1 of my fresh start to a healthier life.

6) Stop the late-night snacking!

Medium-term:
1) Get back down to, then out of my recent "yy-ville" weight range to "xx-ville" by the end of BLC-21.

    I KNOW!! I'm so sorry I haven't stopped by sooner. I keep thinking about you and then you know how a new round goes. My head is spinning and I get all turned around from what I meant to go do. Anyway, we'll keep in touch on here and you are in the FB group right? emoticon to you! I promise I won't forget you and we'll be waiting with open arms when the time is right for you to come back!

    Thank you so much for the lovely goodie! :) I had a real good time with my GF ... our little girls barely gave us any peaceful time together ... but still it was a lot of fun.
    Hope you are continuing with us on the BRC and BLC23? Would love to see more of you!
