My name is Judy and I live in Magnolia, Texas about 40 miles nw of Houston. I am a member of Texas Montgomery County and Spark Hope. These group of ladies are very awe inspiring for me and I love to read the posts everyday and comment when I can. I started at 230 lbs 16 weeks ago and have lost a total of 35 lbs and am continuing to lose. I have changed my eating habits and am exercising whenever possible and have cut out all caffiene and whites from my diet. It is exciting to see the inches come off, I have lost 6.75 inches in my thighs and 2.75 in my waist. I praise God that I have decided to get a handle on my eating and get in line with God's word. I sing in a barbershop group with 7 other ladies and we sing at nursing homes, assisted living centers and church functions. We stay really busy and I love to sing. It is really fun meeting and chatting with new friends, I have met one lady here who lives in Magnolia and we are trying to connect and meet to keep each other in line with our eating. I pray you each have blessed days and that you continue to be all that God expects you to be for His glory. Judy
My biggest goal is to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. This will help in my overall goal which is to become a better witness for my Savior, Jesus Christ.
To date I have cut out all caffiene, all white food, like potatoes, rice, white bread. Counting calories, eating rice cakes for snacks, lots of fruit & veggie. I drink tons of water every day since that is all I am drinking. I have joined a gym by my house and try to go as much as possible, to treadmill, bicycle, and stair step. Also I love to swim and they have an indoor pool with water temperature 86 degrees, so I swim every time I workout. I have joined the Biggest Loser at my church with about 40 other ladies, striving to get a handle on our weight. It is fun to try and lose weight as a group and we are competing every week to see who can lose the most weight, we are divided into smaller groups of 5 or 6. At the conclusion of this competition I have won for losing the most weight in my group a total of 5 times and have won 5 $10 gift certificates to Kohl's. The overall prize for losing the most weight for the 12 weeks we are meeting is $500 gift certificate to Kohl's. W
I live in Magnolia, Texas and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The 1947 is my year of birth and I am 58 years old. I also love to sing and sing in a ladies barbershop group with 7 other ladies, we sing at nursing homes, churches, and various places. Singing is wonderful for your health you should try it, even if it is just in the shower. (L0L) Besides singing in this group I also sing in my choir at church, I am a Christian and have been for 40 years. I became a Christian in my senior year of high school.
My favorite movie to date is "Eight Below", wonderful sled dogs and so smart. It was such an inspirational movie, the dogs were truly survivors and such helpers to each other. It was wonderful to see the way they cared for each other. Kinda reminds me of this site.
