“There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you only do it when its convenient. When you are commited to something you accept NO excuses, ONLY results.” –Kenneth Blanchard

You are the way you are because that is the way you want to be. If you REALLY wanted to be any different you’d be in the process of changing right now. (Not sure who said this, props to whom ever did!!)

Two of my favorite quotes that make me ...

Two of my favorite quotes that make me wake up and get movin, though the first time I read the second quote I honestly was more than a little angry at it and who said it, but I was not actually angry at it or them, I was angry at myself because it was true. No one can do anything or be anything or what ever for us. We have to do it ourselves, and that had been a hard concept for me for some reason, but no more. I am taking charge of myself and my life and I AM going to get what I want because I want it AND I deserve it.

Hey there! My name is Kim and I am a married, stay-at-home mom of 3, two of which are twins. I am here to lose weight because I want to be healthy, happy, confident, enjoy life and feel sexy without having to be told or have to twist someones arm to feel good. I used to tell myself that I wanted to lose weight to be around for my kids and my husband, which I still do, but it is not anymore THE reason. I am here for me. ME, ME, ME! It has taken me a LOOONNNGGG time for me to figure that out. I mean really figure it out, in my heart, and tell my brain to take a brake.

I listen WAAY to much to my head, and I need to stop. Its time to lead with my heart and the rest will follow. Listening to my head leads to fear, and fear does not do me any good. I am NOT going to let unjustified fear hold me back from being all that I can and will be.

Earl Nightingale said it best, “Don’t let fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of doing it. The time WILL pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to good use.” And that is EXACTLY what I intend to do. I will probably have to do some tweaking along the way, but that is ok, as long as I keep moving forward that is all I care about. As they say, the Journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

I wanted to redo my page and tell of my whole weightloss journey since I started my 1st unhealthy diet, but have decided not to as it doesn’t matter. It is in the past. I am not going to dwell on it. All that matters is I know what has and what has not worked for me on my journey. What has worked I am going to stick with or firgure out how to incorporate it into my daily/weekly routine. What hasn’t worked, Buh-bye.

So I have a theme song for my life, yes I really do and I want to share it because I think we can ALL relate. Yes, ALL of us. In the world. The song is called ‘I believe’ by Yolanda Adams. It is from the movie ‘Honey’ starring Jessica Alba. I love it and hope you can search it out and listen to it. It will be worth your while!!! Here are the Lyrics

They said you wouldn't make is so far uh uh,And ever since they said it, it's been hard, But nevermind the nights you had to cry,Cause you have never let it go inside, You worked real hard, And you know exactly what you want and need,
So believe and you can never give up, You can reach your goals, Just talk to your soul and say

(Chorus:)
I believe I can (I can),I believe I will (I will),I believe I know my dreams are real (know my dreams are real),I believe I'll stand (Oh yea), I believe I'll dance
I believe I'll grow real soon and (That's why)That is what I do believe

Your goals are just a thing in your soul uh uh, And you know that your moves will let them show, You keep creating pictures in your mind, So just believe they will come true in time, It will be fine Leave all of your cares and stress behind, Just let it go, Let the music flow inside, Forget all your pain, And just start to believe

(Chorus:)
I believe I can (I believe I can oh yea), I believe I will, I believe I know my dreams are real (All of my dreams are real). I believe I'll stand, I believe I'll dance (I gotta dance), I believe I'll grow real soon and (ooo), That is what I do believe, Whoa oa oa YEAH

(Music break)

Nevermind what people say, Hold your head high and turn away, With all our hopes and dreams, I will believe, Even though it seems it's not for me, I won't give up I'll keep it up, Look into the sky, I will achieve all my needs. I will always believe (Chorus 3x)

I have, since I started my recent weightloss journey since my last pregnancy with my twins, started at 223 pounds and lost 54 lbs. I am not done yet. I am working out, and feeling pretty darn good. Maybe I am not at 100% with my confidence yet, but I am feeling better than I have in a LONG time and I am not about to let that go. So as many DONE GIRLS have posted on their intro text, I am ready to also! So here goes...
I am done feeling down and depressed about myself.
I am done feeling like my husband is not attracted to me.
I am done feeling like the ugly fat mom that my kids will grow up to be embarrased of.
I am done feeling sorry for myself.
I am done with all the excuses.
I am done with my lazy attitude!!
I am done with the emotional eating.
I am SOOO done with the mood swings. (So is my family! {:O) )
I am done hiding from cameras and not wanting to be in photos.
I am done with not wanting to go out into public and feeling like I am grossing people out.
I am done being concerned with what looks people are giving me when I go grocery shopping.
I am done with this 'muffin top' waist!
I am done coming home crying because I am ashamed of myself when I start to unintentionally compare myself to the "pretty, skinny" girls.
I am done with wanting to cry when I look in the mirror because of my face and body.
I am done not having a bath towel that I can wrap ALL the way around me and tie.
I am done hiding from my husband when we bow chicka bow bow {;O) (LOL)
I am done being the example of what NOT to do for my children!!!
I am DONE seeing myself as less of a person than everyone else!

I hope that in the near future I can inspire and motivate others as other sparkers motivate and inspire me to be the best that I can be!

I am on my way, jump on board or get outta the way! Kick butt and takin names!

Record every other week the size of different of parts of my body: neck, chest, biceps, waist, upper and lower hips, upper and lower thighs, calves and ankles to keep me motivated by the inches, not pounds lost.

Drink lots of water!!!

Work on my attitude about myself, my life, being a mom, etc.

Do at least 5 affirmations and 5 daily gratitudes daily.

Take my supplements DAILY (I really suck right now at this!!)

Read my bible daily and pray throughout my day.

I love to travel and see new destinations.

Found this quote on another sparkers page and loved it.
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe
