This is what I should, & will again, look like!
Here I am in July of 2005 - looking like what I want to look like again!
I can't believe that, after having a baby at age 39, I lost all of my "baby" weight plus. Then, just out of pure laziness I guess, I it all gained back again!
I really want to get back to a healthy & attractive weight - my husband wants that for me, too! I joke that "I'm in shape - round is a shape!"; but it's just a cover because I'm truly too round.
I'm short-waisted to an extreme, & the extra weight looks & feels bad. I've tried a lot of programs - and with SP I've been very successful. I lost 11 pounds, but then I just seemed to start skimming along - sort of sticking to the plan, but not really doing well on the food.
It's simple - I want to lose the weight I gained back, & be the size person that my body type/shape should be.
I need to be accountable, or I'll find every excuse to "cheat". I plan on posting & finding friends who'll help keep me on track.
I've been married since 1985, & in 2003 we had our own miracle when I finally gave birth to a child! He's a handful, but I wouldn't trade him for anything...most days! :)
Hey - if anyone is interested, I wrote a book! It's called "Katy & Shari: Adventures in Friendship". If you're interested, just search for it on any bookstore site.

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

From God By Faith
MATTHEW 9:29 NKJ
29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith
let it be to you."
Have you ever wondered why God blessed someone -- when it was
obvious they did not deserve it?
Do you wonder why you are not more blessed -- even though you
are doing your best to be a good Christian?
The answer is faith.
We do not receive from God based on what we deserve, but on
what we believe.
GALATIANS 3:9 ICB
9 Abraham believed this, and because he believed, he was
blessed. It is the same today. All who believe today are
blessed just as Abraham was blessed.
Our receiving from God is not based on our works, but on God's
grace. We have access to God's grace by our faith -- not
through our merit.
ROMANS 5:2 NKJ
2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in
which we stand . . . .
Many try to earn something from God when He has already given
us all things through Christ. Now by faith we must appropriate
what God has provided.
Don't despair if your faith is not too strong. The cure for
weak faith is to feed on the Word of God, the Bible.
ROMANS 10:17 NKJ
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of
If you feed your heart and mind the Word of God, your faith
will grow strong. You feed it in by reading it, hearing it,
speaking it, and meditating on it.
SAY THIS: I will feed on God's Word and my faith will grow.
Then I will receive all God has for me.
