20 lbs of chicken fat GONE!
"Who are you?" ........."I'm Batman!"
My little love and one great reason to stay on this journey.
I joined Sparkpeople in 2009. At that time I weighed about 140. Through exercise, eating healthy and tracking my calories on Sparkpeople, I made it down to 120 lbs. Then the tragic, untimely loss of a precious loved one, my daughter-in-law, happened. Grief took contol of my emotions and my emotions of my eating. Depressed and no longer exercising, I started packing on weight.
It has taken 2 years working through the grief and finding my way back emotionally to a better, healthier state. I know it is time to take control again, but soon II will be facing the loss of another dear loved one. This time, my Dad. I need to focus and be strong to see him to the end of his life's journey and I know that keeping myself healthy is an important part of that. And I also know that I need the help and support of my fellow Sparks.
Get portions and daily caloric intake back under control. Focus on fresh, nutritional foods and lay off of the processed, junk foods. Ultimately to be down to a wonderful 115 to 110 pounds. (I'm only 5 foot and petite boned, so that is totally reasonable._
My program includes continuing use of Sparkpeople's nutrition tracker to stay within my calorie guidelines, to continue to increase the amount of physical activity I get each week, 90 minutes is no longer enough!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Bless Them Abundantly: A Veteran’s Day Prayer
Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women
who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service
in the continual struggle
to preserve our freedoms, our safety,
and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly
for the hardships they faced,
for the sacrifices they made,
for their many different contributions
to America’s victories
over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

I was deleting some old messages and came upon one from you - and couldn't help but smile - so thought it best I checked to see how you are doing?
The last few months have been challenging for me - I lost my sister the 3rd of Feb. I believe she is now with Christ and that is my comfort -
Once again hope things are well with and for you - God Bless - Hugs - Teresa
