Teaching a Teen Fashionista Sewing Class
Feb. 11, 2008
I have achieved major goals in life. Raised two very successful young men, master degree & wrote a fashion book. (I won't sell it FAT). But have not put my mind to losing 46 extra pounds which has depressed me. I have a vision of returning to my home town slim, sexy, looking smashingly devastating @ 52 (just for me). Everything else I‘ ve done was never a personal gift to me. But this challenge is something I want to be just for me to enjoy the rest of my life.
I felt my best when I use to jog. I loved the air flowing through my lungs as a filter and to feel the freedom of the air blowing threw my hair makes me feel like “I can do all things through Christ”. So part of my goal is to dedicate each morning to prayer and jog in the mornings before my day actually start.

First, I would like to thank God for my health, strength and family. Realizing that no matter what, I have to keep the Lord first in everything. I look and feel better since I started this journey in February. I do not really see the weight lost as others do, but I see the difference in my clothes.
I would like to thank the spark team for the friendship and encouragement to make my halfway mark. I am not in a hurry as long as I decline. By the way I went to my home town and YES I made a smash hit with my new wardrobe but I isolated myself before I presented a lecture on fashion. I need to renew my goals and dreams to be a lot more aggressive with life, to live, love and challenge myself even more.
Lately, I haven't done much of anything, seems like just lots of sleepin. So I finally get medical insurance, then I make all kinds of doctors appointments. Understand I haven't been able to go for several years, I am sure some of us can relate. Anywho, I have my list of what I think is wrong just to see if I'm on key. I got the results back.... Bam! I am so on it. My biggest problem naturally was the weight loss. I could NOT understand for the life of me WHY I weighed what I did, but didn't have the track record to reflect the weight I carried. WELL, when the results came back as my hemoglobin was low (me being a anemic). WOW- what an eye opener! So it's just a matter of IRON pills. Then the weight will come off after the blood balances. Doc was explaining to me how the body works yea, yea, yeah- I knew all of this.... But I didn't know how MY body functioned. I am so excited to know what I really need to get my waistline back .... I feel like I have been born again for the 3rd time. Jesus, Yes! THIS IS TRULY A NEW DAY.
So I say all of that to say Spark People get blood work done there so many thing that can help you become a healthier you by having that 3 hr. blood test done. I didn't realize how much I pushed my self daily I just thought it was the residue of depressed.
Loose the weight thats all I want for now!
*5am give God his
*Jog an 1 hr daily.
