No More FAT Betty Boop For Me!

I started on my weight loss journey because of health issues, and wanting to look and feel better in & out of my clothes. I don't have self-esteem issues, I just know that I can and will do better. Now on top of that, I will be turning 50 this year and I'm having a fabulous birthday celebration. I plan to look and feel fabulous. My ultimate goal is a long fulfilled life, without regrets.

With God, all things are possible!

1 YEAR DOWN
Monday, September 26, 2011
I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!!



1 year ago today, I started my sparkpeople weight loss journey. Even though I have not met my weight loss goal, I'm so very proud of myself!

I weighed in at 230 lbs. on September 26, 2010 and today, September 26, 2011, I'm proud to say that I weighed in at 179 lbs., only 4 lbs. shy of my goal. To me that's pretty awesome.

I was only trying to get back into my wedding dress (size 14). I've gone from wearing size 18-20 down to size 11-12. (I haven't been this size in over 15 years)
(What a huge accomplishment)

I worked hard to get where I am, With God and a whole lot of support from my family and new SP friends, it all paid off.

God is not through with me yet, and I'm not through with this journey. (My lifestyle change)

I celebrated my big 50 birthday just as I planned, looking fabulous, cruising and partying with family and friends. Even one of my new SP friends came out to meet me at my birthday celebration, thank you Panbooks for all your support.

To God be the Glory!

I was blessed by God and my husband with a brand new Infiniti EX35 for my all my hard work and my big 50 birthday.

Oh how I love both of them.

My Goals:
To look and feel better in & out of my clothes. But more than anything, to be healthy and to live to fulfill my purpose for being blessed with life.

My Program:
I've changed my eating habits drastically. I make sure I eat breakfast everyday, which is a biggie for me. I could look up and it be noon after starting my day @ 4:00 a.m. That was not good. I now start my day @ 3:00 a.m. I do 30-45 minutes of cardio a minimum of 4 days a week. And, I absolutely drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water everyday.

Personal Information:
Born and raised in the Chi, that's short for Chicago to those not familiar. I love my city and job, but looking forward to retirement and spending time with my grandchildren. I've had many obstacles during my life's journey, But I know where my blessings come from. Therefore, I will not give up. To God be the Glory.

Other Information:
Passions are cooking and serving. I believe that helping others is my God given purpose.

By the way, I just happen to adore Betty Boop and purple. Can you tell?

I originally started on my weight loss journey because of health issues, and wanting to look and feel better in & out of my clothes. I never did reach my goal of 60lbs., but 51lbs. is not too shabby. With that being said, I have since put about 20lbs of that back on. I met with a personal trainer yesterday and I'm ready to start all over, fresh and no regrets. I worked out this morning and I'm feeling great. I meet with my trainer this evening for another workout. I'll probable be doing 2 workouts 2-3 times a week and continuing my usual 1 workout 5 days a week. I will be weighing in and taking measurements this evening and will post same so that I may begin tracking. Pray for me...Taking it one day at a time. Right now, I'm setting a goal of 60 lbs in a year again, but I will know exactly what my goal will be after my weigh-in and measurements are recorded.

OK....I'm finally tracking again. Thanks for the encouragement. Sorry it took me so long to get you message. I hadn't logged in, in forever. Yesterday was my first day and though I went over, I'm at least tracking everything and conscious of my choices.
