So here I am on another profile page, this one I hope to keep around for a while to keep myself on track and to encourage others! I'm a single mom, four of my five kids still at home - they range in age from 25 down to 10 and I have a sweet grandson that's almost 4. I've been working on weight loss since January 14, 2009. I love weight lifting and even though I thought I was going to die when I first tried an eliptical I actually really love it now. My hope is that I am a good example to my ...

My hope is that I am a good example to my kids, can encourage and motivate others and that I can reach goals that I never would have imagined.

Hi Shani! Thanks for the goodie and good wishes.....so much appreciated. We'll get there - need to take things a bit easier perhaps, but we'll get there!

Thanks so much for your supportive comments on my blog, Shani!

I think it's wonderful that you'll have a chance to do the dunk tank. Having my BF measured professionally answered a lot of questions for me - we are all made so differently...and some moreso than others! emoticon

As I posted on the challenge team, I have always run lean and generally don't need to work as hard as other people to see results. Luck of the genetic draw, plain and simple. Now if only I could bottle that and send it to my SP friends I wouldn't feel so guilty about it! emoticon

Thanks so much for sharing!! Yes, goals are soooooo important! I know it, but seem to forget it sometimes. I don't know how I can forget these things! lol You can do this! Where do you want to go? What do you want to accomplish now?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! :D

You're right...dating again is scary. Ok...so it's downright terrifying. The guy I'm going out with on Saturday is supposed to call me around 7:30pm...and my stomach is so jumpy I'm having a hard time eating dinner. *lol* I think this is why it has taken me so long to get back into it...I hate the whole getting to know someone. It would be so much easier if I just knew them already. *lol*

Hey Shani! So glad to see you back a bit more often :-) Read your post about May blogs, and boy can I relate! Anytime I try to change things, I seem to go through this weird period of total 'stasis'....change immobilizes me!

I did something that helped - maybe it'll work for you. I got out my trusty old pen and paper journal and wrote down what I wanted to achieve, what I needed to do to achieve it.....then all of the 'excuses' that came up as to why I couldn't do the actions required (cuz they were new actions, right?) Then I refuted each excuses and gave myself reasons why I COULD do these things....and it is helping to shift my mindset.

Let me know if this is helpful :-)
