The Journey of a Lifetime!!!

Yeah, muscle ways more than fat. I am going by how I feel and look and how my clothes fit more than anything. I still way and celebrate each pound lost, but I know that isn't the real test of fitness. :-)

Hey, Mississippi !! =) I had no idea you are doing P90X , that would just take me down !!! Very awesome, really cool that you are doing that and I know you are gonna be successful !! BTW , my hubby did it 2 years ago, and he gained some weight for a few weeks, what with all the muscle mass he was building . But that is a GOOD thing , so keep up all your hard work !!! emoticon

Pam, Encouragement is something I need an awful lot of, lol. Day to day I find reasons to cheat, give up, or say 'whatever'. emoticon But I know we can do this.

Linda, yeah, it can get a bit stressful trying to raise five children and go to college, and now adding in getting in shape and getting back into church regularly. But, I know I am strong enough emoticon We all are. :-)
