This weight has to GO
I just turned 38 years old in May. I am a middle school teacher with no children of my own. I am very active in my church, singing on the choir and praise team and over the praise dance and worship team. I LOVE God and all His many blessings. I joined Spark People over a year ago, but I have not been very diligent in losing weight. This time, I will succeed because I first sought the Lord and asked for His help in my weight loss battle. I know with Him, I am victorious! I am looking forward to using my new body to serve as a temple for Him and His works. He has big plans for me! Counting it all joy!
My weightloss goal is to lose 95 pounds before my next birthday, May 2013. My personal goal is to be able to cross my legs at the church revival this fall.
After no weight loss on Slim Fast and having some stomach complications, I am now simply trying to eat a balanced 1200-1350 calorie meal each day. I am using Spark People's meal plan and I pray it works for me. CREATING a lifestyle change with some exercising!!!
I am from South Carolina, a small country town called Cowpens. I am widow. I lost my husband in a motorcycle accident July 2011, on our anniversary. He had a passion for fitness and as I sit and think about him at times, it has finally motivated me to get back started.
If you are a reader, let me suggest Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyers. It is a phenomenal book. They also have a study guide online that goes along with it (there is a free one).

"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding.
Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation.
You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals.
Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
Hello Sparkfriend! I hope you are having a good week so far! Be sure to get your day started off right...take one step towards your goals, and that will help you to take another, and another! Never forget that you are worth your best effort.

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
Happy Monday, Spark friend! I hope you had a great weekend! Let's do our best to make this a healthy week....one day at a time! I know we can do it!

"Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize.
Your words are the greatest power you have.
The words you choose and their use establish the life you experience."
Happy Monday, Spark friend! I just want to encourage you to keep your self talk POSITIVE! Be your own cheerleader and encourage yourself to do your best, one day at a time.
Repeat after me..."I am worth it!"
Now have an awesome, healthy week!

" Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
I hope your week has been going well, Spark friend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals, and remember that even baby steps will get you there if you take enough of them. Don't ever give up, and don't ever forget that you are worth the effort. I'm here if you need support!
