2013

2013 is about focus!!!!!
I have played with this weight loss thing for too long. This is the year for me to stop half- a**ing and do what I know in my heart I can accomplish. I'm going hard or going home this year.
The Former me:
The girl who seemed unbreakable
Broke
The girl who seemed strong
Crumbled
The girl who always laughed
Cried
The girl who never stopped trying
Gave up
She dropped her fake smile as a tear ran down her ...

*************************************
1-4-09 I joined the Spark team some months ago and while I have made small strides towards my progress I have not taken my participation or my journey very serious. I have the knowledge but I also have the fear. I have lost weight many times, and have done so with several different commercial weight loss programs. My problem is not losing it. The problem is that once I lose the weight I run out of excuses to not let myself shine, and to fully live my life. I start to feel that if I shine too much people will get mad or their feelings will get hurt but guess what somebody did get mad and feelings did get hurt MINE!! I can not continue to live I mean exist this way. I made a decision for myself, and that was that I'm joining the bootcamp. I am not going to start again only to stop before I fulfill my dream, and reach my goal. I am starting at 284 with a determined mind and the fire to go all the way. Good Luck to everyone. Let the Challenge began. My goals for the challenge are to work out four days a week, spark daily, and to lose 12 pounds.

DONE!!!!!!

I am DONE being the fat friend.
I am DONE shopping in plus size stores.
I am DONE making excuses for not being more active.
I am DONE letting others dictate how my life goes.
I am DONE accepting anything so i won't make others mad.
I am DONE waiting to live.

Hi Shamika, Just stopping by to say Hello and congratulate you on your loss this past week. Way to go! You are out of the 300's and they are never to be seen again. It looks like you are also trying to kick the soda habit. I've been pretty addicted for 25+ years but have been off it now for 10 days... Yip! I think the hardest part is over. I hope your have a great week and keep on pushing. Hugs, Rhonda
