ALL Things Are Possible!

I use sparkpeople everyday as a tool to help me stay motivated to continue to lose weight. I first used SP to help me in my 2009 New Years Resolution--to exercise everyday in 2009. I did it! 365 consecutive days of exercise completed in 2009!

Now I'm going for a second time around, but this time in 2011. I can do all things in Christ who gives me strength! (Phil 4:13)

SP keeps me accountable and focused. I honestly don't think I would be where I am today, if I didn't ...

I've got a waah story, as we all do here, but it's not important anymore. The past is the past, and I put way too much energy into being miserable and fat. The minute I decided to own the past and take charge (get out of denial), is the day that I started moving forward and never looked back.

It's funny how something that sounds so simple, was just so hard to do. If I can do it, so can you!

Member Since: 1/14/2009

SparkPoints: 27,269

Fitness Minutes: 37,550

My Goals:
1) 200 (done)
2) 180 (done! 10/21/10)
3) 150
4) 135




My Program:
I exercise daily (yes, every single day) and try to watch my food intake like a hawk!

I have learned that the key to my success is making each day count and not looking and/or obsessing over the bigger picture...but the now picture.

I strive for tiny goals each day that help in the bigger picture like getting outside (being outside leads to something active for me), charting everything that goes into my mouth, 8-10 glasses of water, 25-35g of fiber a day, 60g of protein a day etc. Tiny goals that turn mole holes into mountains! Little goals add up into something huge, let me tell you!

This is life and it is NOT a dress rehearsal! Make it count one decision at a time! If you mess up, don't throw in the towel for the day. Just start over at the next meal/goal! You can do this! You are a star!

Personal Information:
I am Christian, a wifey and a mommy...but mostly I am just a big fat hairy nerd!

The largest I have ever been was 240. I stopped weighing myself after my son was born in Jan of 2007 because it was just depressing to see. I recently unearthed a photo from 2008 (my son's first haircut in my pictures section) and I don't look any smaller there, than I did when my son was born. Wow.

Other Information:
Consider now, for the Lord has chosen you to build a temple as a sanctuary. BE STRONG AND DO THE WORK. (1 Chronicles 28:10)

We can do ALL things in Christ who strengthens us! (Phil 4:13).

The first quote/scripture is what inspired me to do this and be consistent.

The second is my favorite quote/scripture and it keeps me going strong to accomplish the first! How awesome is it knowing that God gives us the strength to do what we gotta do?!? WOW and Amen to that!

The Aquarian girl is born an isolated only child in some way where she has a lot of attention from adults and isn't expected to "act like a little kid". As a result she becomes a very smart child and is expected to be a "little adult." This can make her feel separate from other kids and give her stress. But Aquarius isn't a "fat" sign as she has lots of energy. (DENISE AUSTIN is an Aquarian.) Aquarius makes a great teacher and loves to start new things that are different. Libra, Sagittarius, Aries, Leo and Gemini are great people to get along with. The Aquarius woman can be all she want to be, as she can deal with change.

In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.
Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.
You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence. emoticon
