Flowers everywhere...My hanging basket behind the flag is growing into the flower box





My "Tumbler" tomato hanging on our front porch





Contrary to popular belief, tomatoes do just fine in containers. (Unless the squirrels get them.)



I have 12 pics in my gallery

My Goals:
I want to be able to go out and not be self-conscious of the way I look. I also hope to motivate myself to become more active as I have a tendency to put exercise on the "back burner." I would love to actually achieve my weight loss goals.

My Program:
I have been doing "flex-points" with WW since the first week of February '08. I started SP in April. It has been a real backup to my goals. It's 'realtime' support through the cravings and mistakes that we are all faced with.

Personal Information:
I've finally lost 25 pounds! This time I'm going to continue to do what must be done! During the summer when I am not working, I stay up too late and "play" on the computer.

Other Information:
I have a great garden during the summer. There is nothing like a tomato grown in Jersey. I drive to North Jersey every May to purchase heirloom tomato plants from Catalpa Ridge Farms. (www.jerseygrown) I get them and my husband and kids get to plant them! My green tomatoes are starting to ripen. Today (8/5) my daughter brought in an "orange strawberry" tomato...It's heart shaped with gathered shoulders like a strawberry (but it's a deep orange color. What a taste!! :-) 0 points

Thank you for the visit ... great job on your weight loss. You are a true inspiration! I am on that weight loss elevator, going up and down, hopeful to eventually get that under control. Take care of yourself, make time to laugh and keep smiling.

Karen, Thanks so much for the star and the encouragement!! Keep on going with this journey. There have been many weigh ins for me where the loss has been minimal. However the exercise does payoff big time in the end. I now weigh about the same as my daughters but I am a smaller size!!! That is due to the exercise and pumping weights! Hang in there.
