Shared Fitness Tracker
I started weight my loss journey on January 1,2007.I guess you could say it was my New Years Resolution.I didn't like what I seen in the mirror.I had no energy and I hated to exercise.I knew I had to do something.You know the saying a picture never lies,well when I saw my picture I knew it was time.That was my wake up call.I found this website called Sparkpeople.It gave me all the tools I needed to lose weight the right way.I had tried the diet pills and everything else that said it would help you lose weigh fast.Sparkpeople was differant.It taught me that loosing weight slow was the healthy way to do it.I thought ok I think I can do this.Well I got a friend on board with me and we started Sparkpeople.It was hard at first.I wanted every sweet thing I saw!!!I knew that if I wanted to loose the weight I couldn't give in every time.I started making healthy choices and exercising and before I knew I had lost 5 pounds.I kept doing that and another 5 pounds came off.I am not going to say that my journey has been easy and the pounds have just magically fell off.I have had my share of weeks when the scale didn't move or if it did move it moved up instead of down.I lost my motivation and wanted to just give up.I have had a great support system.They wouldn't let me give up!!!!I am glad they didn't let me give up on myself.I have lost 30 pounds and still going strong!!!I am about 10 pounds from my second goal!!!I truly can't believe I have done it.I try to exercise everyday.I have worked my way up to an hour of exercise.I have came along ways.I am here to tell you that if I can do anyone can do it.You just have to have your way up call.....When you put your mind and heart into something its amazing what you can accomplish.....
Don't quit when the tide is lowest,
For it's just about to turn;
Don't quit over doubts and questions,
For there's something you may learn.
Don't quit when the night is darkest,
For it's just a while 'til dawn;
Don't quit when you've run the farthest,
For the race is almost won.
Don't quit when the hill is steepest,
For your goal is almost nigh;
Don't quit, for you're not a failure
Until you fail to try.

Am a " Kept " Woman .
You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind, but GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)
There were times when I thought I could go no longer, but the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)
At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong, but the LORD kept my mouth shut. (Psa. 13)
Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough, but GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25-34)
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up. When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)
I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me!
Praise the Lord and pass the filet mignon! I'm blessed to be " KEPT. "
When you're sure you're on the right road to success
you don't have to plan your journey too far ahead.
Don't burden yourself with doubts and fears
as to the obstacles that may bar your progress.
You don't need to know all your answers in advance.
Just have a clear idea of the goal you want to reach.
You can only take one step at a time.
If you can muster up the courage to begin,
you'll find the courage to succeed.
It's the job you never start
that always takes the longest to finish.
Eighty percent of success is in showing up.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're crossing seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you try to smile but you have to sigh.
When cares are pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, But don't you quit.
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with your next blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
It's the difference between faith and doubt.
You may be close, though it seems so far.
It's hard to tell how close you really are.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem their worst,
That you must not quit
To be able to look in the mirror and like what I see!!!
I AM REALLY WATCHING WHAT I EAT AND HOW MUCH I EAT.I AM TRYING TO DRINK MY WATER.I AM GOING TO KEEP EXCERCISING!!!
I live in Coastal Georgia.I am blessed to be able to stay at home with my kids.I love Nascar!!!My favorite driver is Dale Jr!!I also like to read.
Rule your mind or it will rule you.
The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph Marvin Phillips

Hey sweetie. How's your week starting out? I want to let you know that I'm here for you...and I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I only pray that it's only because God wants me to check in with you - not because something is terribly wrong. (((hugs)))

It's been a hella week. All I have to say is thank goodness for workouts at the Y with Danny! Otherwise, I think I'd lose my mind. To say this week has been stressful is an understatement, girl!
