When I woke up this morning, I asked myself, "What is life about?" I found the answer in my room...the fan said, "Be cool." The roof said, "Aim high." The window said, "See the world!" The clock said, "Every minute is precious." The mirror said, "Reflect before you act." The calendar said, "Be up to date." The door said, "Push hard for your goals." The floor said, "Kneel down and pray"...

Hello...My name is Nkechi (pronounced Nikki). I am a mother of four beautiful children and I am here for them. I never have the energy to actually sit down and just be with them and I hate myself for it everyday. I want to be a role model for them so I found myself here. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. My weight holds me back from so many of the things I used to do...swimming, socializing, playing with my kids, my husband, even wanting to go back to school...and I hate it. I have never really known how to eat healthy or live healthy for that matter and I am learning so much from this site...I am addicted!! I had a slight setback after already losing 40 pounds and found out that I was pregnant again, with my fourth child, and ended up gaining all of my weight back. I am getting started again with a starting weight of 272 lbs. I am going to start setting small goals for myself for now and see how it goes.

Goal #1: 265 lbs.
Goal #2: 250 lbs.

Just stopping in for a visit to see how you're doing now that we're in between holidays? Did you indulge a bit too much? Are you having a little post-holiday remorse because you indulged a little too much? I certainly am! So, now it's up to us to kick ourselves back into gear and travel this journey together to meet our goals!!! Let's do this!

What do we love about Christmas;
Does our delight reside in things?
Or are the feelings in our hearts
The real gift that Christmas brings.
It's seeing those we love,
And sending Christmas cards, too,
Appreciating people who bring us joy
Special people just like you.
By Joanna Fuchs

The Holiday season is upon us so if you plan on baking use try these tips...

•Applesauce and plain yogurt are good fat substitutes in most recipes. For maximum texture and flavor, replace no more than half the amount of the fat listed in the recipe. If a recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter, you can substitute 1/4 cup applesauce, saving 44 grams of fat and 400 calories (the fat and calories in 1/4 cup margarine)
•Mashed ripe bananas work well as fat substitutes in carrot or banana cake or muffins.
•Purchased fruit puree mixtures, usually prune—based, also are good and work especially well in chocolate, spice and carrot cakes. Follow the label directions.
•Baby food in similar fruit flavors can be good as fat substitutes, too.
•Replace 1 whole egg in a recipe with ¼ cup fat-free, cholesterol-free egg product substitutes or 2 egg whites—you'll save more than 10 grams of fat and 100 calories.
