"A year from now - you will wish you started TODAY!" Karen Lamb - its what i live by and remind myself everyday.

Hi! I am a 45 year old wife and mother to 12 yrs old twin boys - nice to meet you!

My NSV award system ~ I have a silver charm bracelet that I hardly wear - i also have a plain black leather bracelet and every time I loose 5 pounds I am going to take a charm off the silver - put it on the leather one and wear it everyday to remind me how far I have come.

1st charm added - 7/1/14 (1st 5lbs gone for good)
2nd charm added - 7/19/14 (2nd 5lbs gone for good)
3rd charm added - 8/16/14 - YEAH
4th charm added - 9/20/14 (took over a month but I did it)
5th charm added - 12/11/14 - NEVER, NEVER EVER GIVE UP
6th charm added - 2/17/15

11th charm added - 6/18 - 55 lbs
12th charm added - 9/17/15 - 60 lbs - GOAL weight charm!
13th charm added
14th charm added -

10/29/14 - It is time for a fresh beginning! - It is time to recommit! I have lost my focus - it is time to grab it again and run with it. So far I have lost about 20 lbs but it was 25 at one point - been struggling & scared that I am falling back into my old habits - that my hand and mouth does not have a connection to my brain - there is no thought that goes into what I am eating - it just happens & it is all sweets and carb - unhealthy stuff!! - I do not want to be this way! I want to be strong, confident and happy within my body! THIS IS FOR ME AND ME ONLY!!

Member Since: 2/16/2011

My Goals:
To lose weight once and for all - no matter how slow as long as it is steady. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin and not dread having to go someplace and have "nothing" to wear. I want to be me! I am doing this for me and me ONLY! I LOVE my husband and my twins but I also want to love me!

My Program:
Staying within my 1200-1500 calorie range, using my treadmill as much as possible. I also also keeping my sugar intake and white carbs to a minimum.

On 1/17/15 - I started both The Beck Diet Solution, "how to think like a thin person by Judith Beck & Linda Spangles - 100 Days of Weight Loss - going to be blogging about it daily to keep me on the up & up.

Personal Information:
I love to read - my Ipad has the kindle app & it is loaded with Fiction. I love military romances and paranormal romances. I love to be taken into "new worlds" that the author has set the stage for & spending time there.

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!

    Jenn, thanks so much for stopping by, and commenting on my photo of Tux and I in the pool. He loves to act all dramatic right before we get him in the pool, and then when he's finally in there, he's like, 'ahhhhh, that's niiiiice'. haha!

    Hope you have a great week!

    I live by this credo:
    Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness.
    Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.
    Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something
    to laugh about if you try hard enough.
    ~ Red Skelton ~
