DETERMINATION

Hello I'm Tamika! I have been serious about losing weight since September 2008. Since then, I have been using sparkpeople faithfully. When I need motivation; I read motivational spark pages, read & comment on other's sparkpages & I post blogs. I'm practically doing whatever I can to stay encouraged & not get discouraged. I'm believing that anything is possible for me. I've made the decision that this weight loss journey is not going to be without purpose & determination.

Hello I'm Tamika! I have been serious about losing weight since September 2008. Since then, I have been using sparkpeople faithfully. When I need motivation; I read motivational spark pages, read & comment on other's sparkpages & I post blogs. I'm practically doing whatever I can to stay encouraged & not get discouraged. I'm believing that anything is possible for me. I've made the decision that this weight loss journey is not going to be without purpose & determination.

I�ve made it a purpose to celebrate every 5 lbs. It�s easier to celebrate one step at a time instead of overwhelming myself with the big picture (total weight loss goal = 85 lbs). I am so excited to be such an inspiration to those near and far. Previously I tried to lose weight secretly but it did not work because I kept getting discouraged and would quit. That is why I have made it known about my weight loss goals to people at work, my family & friends. I have been so lucky for the amount of support that has been given to me.

�It�s easy to say you�re too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you�ll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses.�
~ Dr. Oz & Dr. Roizen from the book: You On A Diet~

Thanks! I actually made the background in photoshop. I've had it for a long time now, and was thinking of updating it soon, but I never use the computer in our house that has photoshop.

Hey girl... just saw your profile on the "Motivator of the Day" section of the site. Congrats to you. Read your profile and it inspired me to keep it movin'. I think it's a good idea to celebrate every 5lbs lost and I'm gonna try that. Keep up the good work!
