The Journey to A Better Me!

I'm a 37-year-old Christian, wife of 11 wonderful years and a mother of three children ages 17, 10, and 8. My darling huband and I decided in June of 2009 to get healthy, once and for all. As of May 2010 he has lost 120 lbs. and I have lost about 60 lbs. We're eating healthy, exercising more and teaching our children to live healthier lives - what a great feeling! I hope to be encouraged as well as being an encouragement to everyone I meet here at SparkPeople.

Member Since: 9/3/2009

SparkPoints: 7,911

Fitness Minutes: 3,395

My Goals:
*To lose 25 lbs per year - and keep it off forever!

*To exercise 4-5 days a week - even when I don't feel like it.

*To drink at least 50% of my weight in ounces of water.

My Program:
Because of low thyroid I have put my focus on a balanced diet that is slightly higher in fiber and protein, which helps keep the hungry monster away.

A key part of my healthy lifestyle goals is using SparkPeople's trackers to stay accountable for what I'm eating, how much exercise I'm getting and how much water I drink.

I am also taking part in our county's Weight Loss Challenge, which is put on by Herbalife reps in our area. If you want to see if there's one in your area go to www.weightlosschallenge.com. It involves a cash prize option - the biggest loser for the last round won $450!

Personal Information:
Life Verse:

2 Timothy 1:7(NKJV) - God has not given be a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.*

2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV) - For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.*

The reason this is my life verse is two-fold:

1) I have suffered with depression since I was a teenager. Knowing that God has given me a sound mind helps me to remember that the thoughts in my mind during my darkest days are not what God intends for me, and

2) this verse assures me that through Jesus Christ it is possible for me to have self control, which is a crucial element in living a healthy life.

Other Information:
Favorites: The color Blue, Tulips, Watching DVD's with my Family

Jennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!! My muffins did not turn out that amazing...I posted it before I actually baked them! hahaaha

But, I tried again and left out the oatmeal and did half splenda and half sugar - I still substituted applesauce for butter though. Also, I made a little oatmeal, brown sugar, & applesauce crumble and baked that on the 2nd time around...such a difference!!! Applesauce rocks in place of butter!!

I find it is actually FUN to tweak recipies to include healthy ingredients, especially when the stuff turns out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the vlog comment! You ARE worth it and especially when life is throwing you curve balls, is the time to control the few things you have control over like exercise and healthier food. Hope you're having an awesome week!
