Fact: I'm struggling with my weight.

In my earlier life, I was fortunate enough to never really have to watch what I eat too carefully, but time caught up with me (just like mama said it would) and in 2006 I reached 144 pounds. I decided it was time to do something and I joined Sparkpeople and lost 14 lbs. Then the next summer, I started slowly putting it back on (read too many BBQs), still I worked out fairly regularly and I ate pretty healthy, so I didn't worry about it too ...

Then the next summer, I started slowly putting it back on (read too many BBQs), still I worked out fairly regularly and I ate pretty healthy, so I didn't worry about it too much. Then by Dec 2008 I was up to my highest weight ever, 150 lbs. On my 5'4" frame, it showed. So in January 2009 I hired a personal trainer for me and the hubby, he's been doing great, by my weight and measurements are stubbornly holding their own, having lost only 3 lbs in 9 months. It's been two years since then and no matter what I do it seems the pounds stay put, only going down a few and back up a couple. I even did a full round of P90X during that time with good results in terms of fitness but still not losing the stubborn fat.

It's time to take charge and get them off...for good! I want to feel good again!

Blue has always been my favorite color, and when you add just that hint of green it becomes that much more translucent and etheral--TURQUOISE TEAM IS REPRESENTING! It's funny because as I am visiting your team, I find myself calmer and more tranquil overall...thank you for the moments of peacefulness in an otherwise hectic day!

I just wanted to stop by and wish you the best on this challenge and your journies overall from the Dazzling Diamonds. May you Sparkle and Shine in all you endeavor to achieve!!

Hugs,
Marijo

"There is INSIDE of you
ALL of the potential
To be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY
To do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step
Towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Sweetheart,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Motivated, Change IS Coming,

Jes
