I am back on Spark after being away for too long I joined in 2007 and have been up and down since then, with my weight and my emotional state.

As I sit and reflect how many times I planned to do the right thing and get this weight off for good I realized I can con online friends, I can post motivational stuff and be someone else's cheerleader but it is all a facade.

Honestly I used to sit for hours and comment on the forums, welcome new members and cheer them on all while stuffing potato chips in my face. That is why I left.

But I can't fool the people who really know me.

So this time I am doing this with people I know. Some are joining me here but most of them are on FaceBook.

2016 is my time to get fit. And it will be easier with friends to keep my feet to the fire.

So here I am again...pedometer and walking shoes on, praying this time I will make it and reclaim my health.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

My Program:
It sounds weird but I am eating to lose weight. I am eating 3 meals and 2-3 snacks each day, drinking water and walking.

I got my TREADMILL and it SAT for months!

YEP, but now I am dusting it off and I am walking EVERY DAY.

If I am really really good with it (and the de-cluttering and bills) I will get a Total Gym next Spring!

Personal Information:
I am a homeschooling mom of 4 (DD 12/95, DS 2/97, DS 9/04, DS 7/07) I am married to my true lifetime friend who has been serving in the Navy since 1991.

We currently live in Hampton Roads VA and are praying to stay in the area until DH retires in 2015. After that who knows!

Other Information:
After the birth of our third child I spiraled into postpartum depression. It was a hard road but now I have a great support system including an AWESOME husband and church family who have never let me down. And I am finding new friends in unexpected places.

The people who knew me then would not recognize me now.

Through CHRIST, I am a NEW_Cr8ion!

    YES we can. I need to have negative calorie foods ( celery, pineapple, and such) prepared and ready to munch so the three o clock munchies are healthy. AND no eating after 6pm! So hard. emoticon
