With the loves of my life, Nov. 2007, my heaviest.
M&M's Biggest Loser Challenge Beginning Photo
Trying on my wedding dress in 2003, 70lbs. lighter.
It has been too long since I have been able to post real weight loss. I have been losing a little, gaining it back, and then losing it again. I am making excuses and not being responsible for my health choices.
It is STOPPING here. I have the power to make each day count. It requires effort and time. Here is a list of what it requires of me:
~Log each bite and stay in my range
~Post on my teams
~Drink 10 glasses of water
~Build strength by weight training
~Wear my pedo and get at least 10,000 steps
~Cook meals and stay away from processed food
There are too many people in this world counting on my health and happiness. With my extra weight I am not a happy person. I am not being the best mother, wife, teacher, daughter, sister, and friend I am capable of.
I want to feel good when I see a picture or myself and look good in a 'smokin hot' pair of jeans!!!
I no longer want to be a number.
My goal of losing 63.8 pounds would be entering the over weight catergory instead of obese.
After reaching that goal...I will be heading for the healthy category!
* SP plan with goals
* Count calories every day
* No eating after 8 pm
*Walking/treadmill 5 days a week
* Drink water!!!
* Snack on fruits and veggies
* Cook more and eat out less
My name is Jessica and I currently live in the Mill Creek area, just outside of Seattle Washington. I am married, a mother of 1, and kindergarten teacher. I also have a black lab that loves to drag me along on walks.
Get your booty back on here girlfriend! The M&M's have changed their name to the "We Are WORTH It!" team. Drop in, say hello and get active on SP again. We CAN do this!

M&M's Thought Of The Day:
Fitness in is earned, not bestowed - a process, not a magic trick - an investment, not a miracle.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

A Great Day
"Today is a great day to be alive. The world is filled with positive possibilities, and those possibilities grow more numerous with each passing moment. Sure, there are challenges and disappointments and frustrations. And within those challenges, within those disappointments, are some of the greatest possibilities.
Today is a great day to be alive because today you can make things happen. You can set a goal, chart a course, take stock of your situation and use it to create new value. Pay no attention to those who claim to know how things will be. Your future is yours to determine, and this is the day to make it great.
You don't need anyone's permission to live with joy and fulfillment. You don't need to wait for certain circumstances to line up in a specific way. For today is a great day to be alive, to be productive, to be effective and to fulfill your best possibilities. And now is the moment to enthusiastically get busy making it all happen."-- Ralph Marston
