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).

"What is it that you would like to achieve?
What is it that you wish to change, improve upon, create, express or experience?
If you ever want it to happen, now is when you must do something about it.
If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort."
I hope you're having a great week, Spark friend! Keep your goals in mind, and keep doing your best every day to reach them. It may not be easy, but you know it will be worth it!

"I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step.
If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking."
- Og Mandino
Have a great day, Spark friend, and keep moving towards your goals, one step at a time and one day at a time! Give it your best effort, because you are so worth it!

"Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
Even if you can’t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, you’ll find new ways to make even more.
Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
Even if you’ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now."
— Ralph Marston

"You are destined to SUCCEED! We all have a crisis of confidence now and then. But within each of us is a voice that whispers,"You can do it."
The more we listen, the louder and clearer it will become.
Deep down inside, you know you've got what it takes to achieve whatever you set your mind to.
So instead of ignoring that little voice, turn up the volume!"
~Woman's World Magazine~
