I truly believe a person can renew their self at any age. I'm here now and ready to challenge myself more than I have at any other time in my life. "Living my life like it's golden" for me means accepting where I am now, being accountable to my goals and putting myself first to obtain a better future.

HIGHEST WEIGHT: 232
STARTING WEIGHT W/ SP: 220
LONG TERM GOAL WEIGHT: 130 (goal date 8/1/09)



**** UPDATE 12/22/08 - ONEDERLAND!!! ****

Well, I made it to "onederland".... Yes, that is an accomplishment but I've been here before. I realize I am not going to make my goal of 180 pounds by my birthday in a few days but I am so very proud of where I am right now. I have made some serious progress and changes in my life and not just with my weight. The accomplishment I am most proud of is becomming a full time student and making a commitment to focus on my needs and the needs of my family.

Since I started with SP at the end of August my sweats and all my other clothes are super baggy & my rings are in danger of falling off (I really have to invest in some sizers soon). Yeah, all the physical aspects of loosing weight are great but the mental and emotional aspects are even better. I have more of a spring in my step, my stomach is not upset all the time. I feel as if I have more clarity and focus.

To sum it all up I am so very happy and blessed and I am ready to focus on some new weight loss goals. I am also ready to commit to atleast 1hour 1x per week on spark people because my schedule just won't permit for more than that and I find myself getting away from SP for long periods at a time which I have found is counter effective in achieving and maintaining my weight loss results.

PS. I'll post some update pics before the end of the month.

    just stopping by to say hello and see how you are doing. Im doing well I started a new work out called P90X and its amazing. It really gets my heart rate up and the workouts are amazing it basically deals with muscle confusion and it seems something that I need right now. May God continue to bless you on your weight loss journey.

    The past does not influence me; I influence it. Willem De Kooning

    Historic is a word that many people will use to describe the events that will transpire this week as the President Elect is poised to take his oath as the leader in the most powerful country in the land. As I pause to reflect on his accomplishments, I am reminded of ours. We have taken the leap, enhanced ourselves and are growing into the people we want to be. Kudos to you for seizing the opportunity to make sure that your legacy is one that you can be proud of! Have an amazing week and donít forget to take the time to tell someone how much you appreciate and love them!

    We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. George Bernard Shaw

    Just stopping by to see how you are doing. Im doing well keeping up with the workouts and making sure my diet is clean. I think the eating is the hardest part to keep but I am really pushing myself to get the rest of this weight off. Seems like this last 60lbs is going to give me a fight but Im a fighter and all I can say is BRING IT!!! Stay motivated and strong. Have a great day!!
