My name is Janis and I live in Canada. I am currently trying to live a healthier lifestyle to enjoy my kids more.
My Goal - In about 6 - 12 months: weight in at 180 and then take time to weight in at 160. Then the hard job will be to maintain 160.
Started (w230) lose 20 lbs
Oct - Dec 08(3 month Goal - w210)
My weight yo-yo like crazy. But I am determained to succeed. This has been the hardest 3 months goal for me, but I cannot relax as I journey into my 2nd stage.
Jan - April 09 (4 month Goal sb 180) lose 20 lbs
Did I meet my goal of 180 lbs NO, but I lose 12 lbs, bringing my weight to 198 lbs. WOOHOO, I almost cry, this is such a good feeling. Will continue to slowly crawl along. To maintain my sanity I will only weight in every 3 months. To everyone who gave encouragement Thank You very much.

I am Worth It
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

STRONG PERSON You are!
A strong person knows how to keep their life in order. Even with tears in
their eyes, they still manage to say "I'm ok" with a smile. Send this to a
strong person -- I just did. God is good. Change is coming. God saw your
sadness and said hard times are over. If you believe in Him, send this to
ten people including me. Watch what happens in thirty minutes! Be honest and send this to anyone who made you smile this year. It may surprise you how many you get back. Thanks for making me smile.
Live, Laugh, Love and don't forget to Smile!

Strength in numbers! How goes your day today? Have you accomplished any tiny goal you set for yourself so far? My husband surprised me with breakfast this morning, scrambled eggs with a little celery and onion, YUM!
That's 7 protein. :) In return I am going to go out and wash dishes and check on the children who are home sick this week. I'm slowly feeling better.
I had a nice chat with my friend in Walled Lake, she's getting over being sick as well. I told her about the SPARK PEOPLE website and hope she joins up and that way will have a network of great people like I've found here to keep the motivation and positive energy going!
I'm over here cheering you on, if you can hear me! WOOT!
Have a great day YOU CAN DO IT!
