NEXT GOAL SET ON 12/12/11:

How I lost the 50 pounds?
In 9 months I lost a little over 50 pounds. I had several medical issues at the beginning, so I didn't fully start my dieting and weight loss until the end of July. I had over 20 pounds to loose at that point.
What did I eat? I calculated my calories on SP. I still ate my Taco Bell on occasion and I didn't fully cut out any food in particular, I just made sure I made room for the special food I wanted to eat and stayed in my calorie range. I eat small lunches (salads, soups) and I always have either oatmeal or a yogurt for breakfast. Dinner is fair game, I just eat 1 portion ( and ONE only) and try to keep it as close to 500 and under in calories as possible.
I did cut out soda tremendously. Is it gone entirely? No. I have one every now and again, but my daily drink of choice is water or tea (water has been a struggle for me!).
Execise: I did not have a gym membership until just a few weeks ago, so all of that 50 was done with do
I'm 26 and married to my wonderful husband, Adam. We have been together 9 years in April and married fo r4 in June. We have our first baby girl, Leah, who was born in February 2011.

Hope you enjoy the Easter Poem!
This Life on Earth
Easter means that this life on earth
is not all there is.
Jesus went "to prepare a place for us"
in His Father’s heavenly mansions
for all eternity.
Jesus died for our sins,
paying our penalty,
so that we could be forgiven.
He was resurrected, to prove
that death has no hold
on those who repent
and accept Him as Savior.
This life on earth is a prelude
to eternal joy with our Lord.
Easter is a celebration
of our eternal destiny.

What Is A Friend?
A friend is someone always there
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from life’s challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
