Me and my husband on Christmas Day 2008.
Welcome to my page! Come in, kick off your shoes, and enjoy yourself! Feel free to comment and leave any good advice you may have.
Weight has not always been an issue for me. When I was younger, I was so skinny that my back and my chest were in the same spot. :-) Unfortunately, I don't have that problem anymore.
God has been GREAT to me, and in order to carry out His plans, I must do something about my weight. Presently, my weight is getting in the way because EVERYTHING is hurting because of the extra weight. So, I have decided that THIS IS IT; I must reclaim what is mine--and that is good health.
My first goal is to lose 20 lbs. by July 1, 2009. Afterwards, I will make goals to lose the rest.
Lose 10 more lbs. for a total of 30 lbs by Aug. 1, 2009
Lose a total of 40 lbs. by Sept. 1, 2009
Lose a total of 50 lbs. by Oct. 1, 2009
Maintain my weight after this point.
I am loosely following the WW program. Everyday I will:
*Drink 6 glasses of water
*Stay away from chocolate and sodas
Presently, I live in a suburb outside of Dallas, Texas, but I am originally from Louisiana. I am 37 years old and a 12th English teacher. I have been married to my best friend for 13 years now, and we have two beautiful boys (11 yrs. old & 8 yrs. old). In addition to being a wife, a mother, a friend, and a teacher, I am also a Sunday School teacher, an usher, VBS director, a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. OOOOOOO-OOOOOOOPPPPPP!!!!!
I recently completed graduate school and will be graduating on August 15, 2009 (My sister's birthday)!
Whew, I think that's enough!!!

My favorite scripture is "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for Me?" Jeremiah 32:27
