*****UPDATE*****
Time waits for no one! I've wasted too much time doing nothing about my weight. I've got to get busy!

I have recently given birth to a wonderful baby girl. She's added so much joy to our family! My life is complete with a loving and supportive husband and three beautiful children. My goals are still the same to be a positive role model for my children by living a healthy life. I've run out of excuses and it's time to do it.

"THE REST OF MY DAYS SHALL BE THE BEST OF MY DAYS, I HAVE FAVOR WITH GOD AND FAVOR WITH MAN!"




I WILL SHINE In 2009!


My deepest fear is not that I am inadequate
My deepest fear is that I am powerful beyond measure
It is my light, not my darkness that most frightens me.
I ask myself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous.
Actually, who am I not to be.
I am a child of God. My playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around me.
I am born to make manifest the GLORY of God that is within me.
It is not in some of us, it is in everyone.
And when I let my own light shine
I unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As I am liberated from my own fear
My presence automatically liberates others.



I will never give up
No matter what the odds are
No matter what people say
No matter how far
I will never give up

If I throw it away time after time
If I am one step behind try after try
If I miss dime after dime
I will never give up

Even when it seems all over
Even when no one else believes
Even when it seems I can go no further
I will never give up

For I know I have strength within
For I know I can persevere
For I know that I can win
I will never give up

Because it's someone else's fault
Because I am settling for good enough
Because I fear that I will fall short
I will never give up

There is so much I can still do
There is too much talent to waste
There is so much in me that I want you to see
I will never give up

Why squander all of my hard work and dedication
Why not show the world that I am a fearless baller
Why quit when I still have the opportunity to go on
I will never give up

If I do, I will not be the best me that could live
If I do, I will never know what I am capable of
If I do, I am not giving the world all I can give
I will never give up




******2008 The Year Of Possession!!!!!

This year is my year to finally put an end to my personal battle of the bulge.

I started off on SP last February with a bang! I lost weight quickly and consistently and by May I had met my first goal. Then the weight loss hit the dreaded plateau. Instead of working through it I got discouraged when I couldn't seem to leave 249. Now looking back I feel so foolish. At 1 pound away from my original start weight, I am ashamed and embarassed that I let my old self take control again. I know that it was my bad eating habits and lack of exercise that got me to where I am now. I know that anything worth having is worth fighting for. My health is definately worth fighting for! Now I am out of excuses it's now or never. The funny thing is that I really love to exercise so its time to get a move on. I have had to readdress my goals and my reasons for self sabotage. I definately sabotaged myself its painful but true! So now I am here to start over. Taking it one day at a time. An old Chinese proverb states "Fall seven times stand up eight" That's my motto now I've got to reach my goal. I'm quoting Jim from the Biggest Loser, "I will get fit or I'll die trying!" No One, Nothing, Not Even Me Will Stop Me. I will do what I need to do to get to 180 pounds.

I'm building my body by God's design!

My pledge to myself...


I PLEDGE TO LOSE 104 POUNDS!
I MAKE THIS PROMISE TO MYSELF THAT I WILL NOT SABOTAGE MY OWN EFFORTS BY NOT EATING WELL, EXERCISING, AND GETTING ENOUGH REST! I PROMISE TO STAY THE COURSE NO MATTER WHAT OBSTACLES MAY COME. I WILL NOT GIVE UP! ONCE I REACH A GOAL I WILL GIVE MYSELF A NON-FOOD REWARD.
I WILL GIVE 100% OF ME AND I WILL MAKE NO EXCUSES!
PLEGED 4/19/2008

2009
I will not make any new pledges. I realize that this journey is not about what I say but about what I do. I know that I am my biggest hinderance. So I'm not making up any more excuses. I've got to get it DONE this year!

    It always puzzled me what the contestants eat? Did you try the web site.
