It's hard to believe that I'm almost to my goal. Including weight lost before joining SP, I'm over 90 lbs. down, 25 more lbs. to go! Not sure when I'll get there...but I will get there! I will probably never have washboard abs and I will always bear the consequences of being over 100 lbs. overweight, but I'm doing it and I'm not looking back! I choose to love my body, just the way it is, right now--battle scars and all.

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. ...

Personal Information:
In January of 2012, I got to a point that I could no longer neglect my health. I was at my heaviest weight ever and was heading for a milestone that I never thought that I would get to--300 lbs.

I went to the Internet, searched for a 5K and signed up. In 2012, I did 3 - 5K's and 1 - 10K and lost 45 lbs.

After my last race, I started back with my old habits and gained about 15 lbs. back.

I've now started SparkPeople and have short, medium and long term goals to help keep me motivated.

"Sweat and tears are healing waters." Abby, Season 8 of Biggest Loser

"Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a u-turn and head back in the right direction."

~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE
TIME FOR IT.

If you don't know where to start,
START ANYWHERE.

If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO
HELP YOU OUT.

If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

If you don't know how to do it, TRY
DOING WHAT YOU CAN.

If you believe that you can do it,
YOU WILL.

~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
Love all, trust a few, do
Wrong to none.
(William Shakespeare)
Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!
