How do you like them apples?

At the end of July stilll being over 300 lbs... what I had been for at least the past 10 years, I changed my life. Again with the weight loss... I started trying to make a difference to my heart, my head, and my body. I really don't know what has lead me to start the journey... but I do know who I need to thank for keeping going.

-my husband and children, who have selflessly allowed me time to myself every single day to make them workout widow and orphans respectively.
-my sister and her husband who I know will be at the gym every single morning...
-my TOPS ladies and gentlemen... weighing in every week has been super important to my success so far. It's kept me accountable, and now as their leader, I feel that it is super important for me to lead by example.
-Jean, the art teacher, who if not for us having total school renovations, and being moved into a small school in crowded corners and putting us across the hall from each other, I would never have kept on this journey.
-God, whose strength I have depended on to get me through this school year, and this year of taking back my life.
-Spark People, My Mamas, and their wonderful members and leaders... you all rock. I find when I need you the most, you are there for me, even if my visits have been sporadic here lately, at best.

This morning I weighed in at 224 lbs. I am down a full 100 lbs since July. Wow... who'd of thought it. Not me... amazing what you can do if you just get your mind out of the way.

My Program:
I love... LOVE Tops! Love the little ladies that sit behind me and cheer me on each week.. love the fact that I weigh in and see the scale drop repeatedly. Love the accountability.
I am working out now any time I can... public displays of exercise are frequent enough that the people at the front desk at my gym know me well enough to tease me when I forget to brush my hair before I go.
I love biking. Love it. I want to complete some sort of bike relay for charity. I also want to ride my bike to school this spring. It's only 8k each way.. although uphill on the way home!


Personal Information:
I am from Alberta. I am 39, married with two children. Ravessa aged 8, and Dalin 5. My cup of tea is filled with photography, horses, my mini mule, cats, my dog, and of course number one-my family.

Other Information:
I'm a teacher.. haha which is ironic because I was a terrible student! But I love teaching and it's definitely a career that I was meant to be in!
