Well, hello fellow sparkers. Life is great. I am doing great. I am losing weight. Although my doctor told me to slow down. Frankly because I lost more weight than he told me too. Because I have some health issues that he has been treating, he has asked me to slow down. So I'll try. I think I lost weight that I had gained. I'll do more strength training and that way I can lose more inches. But the fact of the matter is, I can't help if I do lose weight because God is in control. I gave HIm control and what He wants to happen will. I am not doing anything that is life threatening. So all is well.
I guess the natural mind of my doctor is just being careful for me. I appreciate him for that. He wants me to lose the weight and after that, I probably will not have to see him every month like I do now. He does not care that he would be losing a patient. He wants me to be healthy and happy. That's the kind o doctor I like and appreciate. He is so proud of me. This is the same doctor that I gave the website address to. I have been spreading the spark all over the place. I let everyone know that without SparkPeople, I would not have lost the pounds.
God led me to this site so that I could get the help that I needed. The push to be as far as I am now. It is so amazing to me. 3 more pounds and I will be at 50 pounds lost mark. I can't wait to add that to my goals earned. That, I lost 50 pounds marker. Wow! 3 more pounds. I am over halfway to my original goal to lose 88 pounds. That's just based on how much I want to weigh.
I don't know how my body would look at 145 pounds. Will I be too skinny. I have bony legs already. Even before I started losing weight. I am top heavy. Have always been that way. I don't like it, but I guess...well I am blessed because some people pay to get what I have. Imagine that. LOL. Anyway. I know I am getting closer to the first finish. I call it the first finish because this will be a lifetime journey for me. I intend to stay fit and healthy for many more years to come.
I went home on Mother's Day weekend and the reactions from family who had not seen me in so long was priceless. I want to make that impression on everyone who have not seen me for a while. The smiles. The you are little. The looks...from men. Ok, I'll quit. I do like attention, but I don't act like it. You have to let the compliments come and they will.
Smile. That is always good to do. Look in the mirror and just smile for yourself. I have had to do this every morning in order to go to work. I thank God for His Grace and Mercy and His Love that is in me. Otherwise, I couldn't live in this world. I know I am a blessed woman in so many ways. God has truly been good to me. Jesus is the first Way that He has. There is more that I need to work on in my life and in me. I know that I will conquer every obstacle that may seem to be in my path. I will walk forward and I will not look back. I want God's best in every area of my life. I will not settle for less. Never!!! That is not an option. That is not an option for anyone. I can't think that because this is happening now, I just need to do what I can do. No other way.
Not my way, but God's way. Thy Will be done in my life on earth as it is in Heaven. Yes Lord. I choose Your Way every day Lord! Yes, I am making progress in every area of my life and I expect more wonderful things to come. God has been so good to me I just can't tell it all!!! Not now.
I love Spark and all the new people I have met online through this site. Thank You for being there for me no matter what. Thanks to all of those who love to leave me goodies that always make my day. This is wonderful. Life is wonderful. Getting healthy is fun. I am just too happy. Plus it's Friday and a long weekend. I will control my appetite, which is not hard these days. I will take that walk in the neighborhood park too. I jumped on that mini trampoline today and it really got my heart beating and sweat rolling. I felt so good. Have fun getting healthy. That's the only way to do it. Later!

I love my friends. I really do. They are a true inspiration to me and my journey. When I log on and see their progress I am proud, happy and encouraged. I think, they are doing it...so I can do it. I am doing it. Spark...I started this journey wearing a size 24 and some 26 because of these 2 at the top. LOL. Now I am in a 16 zip up button up pant/jean. I don't ever remember wearing a size 16 in my life. Maybe in the 3rd grade. LOL. I owe this all to my Lord and Savior Jesus. Only through His help and Strength have I come this far.
I wanted to be closer to goal, but when it goes slow for some, it will last. I need this slowness so that I can revel in the end victory.
I am excited and nervous. I know I am gaining muscle because my numbers don't show my success. I know I am successful. I feel healthier and am more outgoing. Some people are very introverted when they are carrying extra weight. That was me. I still am walking through some things, but I know I am making it.
You see, my success was ordained before the foundation of the world. This is the time in my life to be all that I can be spirit, soul and body. I am determined to do just that. I will not let anything slow me down. I have to continue to tell myself that.
So many emotions are involved in weightloss. The agony of defeat...the joy of winning...slow weightloss. I am a winner already. I have jumped over so many hurdles. Life is great. No more pity for me. If you don't like me, see ya.
Not YOU Friends.
I have to give myself a pep talk. After all I am a beautiful woman and the opposite sex will be and are attracted to me. I just don't want to be a fool for love. I want what God wants me to have. God's best is always better than the rest. Sometimes we are just too hard headed to listen and look at what is right in front of us. And if you don't see anything then just keep waiting. A note to self: What do you really want? Whole or half? Self knows what I am talking about.
Friends, I appreciate you all.
Get plenty of sleep and please...
do cardio. Any kind.
I know that has helped me to come this far. I have been slipping but I got my dancing shoes on and I am ready to burn, burn, burn. Is it too late to cardio? I did strength train earlier while watching Biggest Loser. They are all winners. Losing so much weight. They all look beautiful. Wow...my time is so close.
I can feel it. How about you??
Let's Go Team!
