IMAGINE THAT!!!

Tuesday, November 06, 2007


In just a few days, I'll be in San Diego for the Core Rhythms infomerical opportunity...WOW!

In just a few weeks, I will have officially transferred to my new position and will be sent to Florida for a week of training...YAY!

One month from today, is my first scheduled cosmetic surgery...IMAGINE THAT!

Right now, I am so overjoyed and excited until I can hardly catch my breath. I truly see God moving in so many aspects of my life and I am just in awe. I see that He is moving me to another level and is answering my prayers in ways beyond what I could have even imagined...IMAGINE THAT! And for that I am so grateful and humbled. The depths of His love is just ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

And then I'm so thankful for ALL of the Angels that God has placed in my life, my family, friends, DIVAs, my workout buddies at the "Y", my co-workers and of course the folks here on Spark.

Anytime anxiety attempts to creep into my mind about all of the things yet to come and especially my upcoming surgery, one of my Angels will call, drop by or send me a Spark Mail that keeps me going.

For example, I've been trying to IMAGINE what I will look like once tummies #1, #2 , #3 and #4 are gone. Last week "JUST4ME4US2" sent me a picture of my hero Oprah and commented on the similarities between me and O (I just wish our bank accounts had more similarities {SMILE}). So for fun, I did a very generic rendition of her outfit and then used my imagination to better gauge how I might look post-surgery...All I can say is IMAGINE THAT!!!

    You are so deserving of every good thing that has come your way. You moved out of the way and let God take the reigns and now HE is leading you to places that your mind could not conceive a few years ago. Just keep HIM first and watch HIM work in HIS own magnificent way! This is only the beginning!

Much love to you---ALWAYS!

On the BALL!!!

Monday, October 29, 2007


This past Friday was my Pastor's 28th year anniversary. For the past ten years our church family celebrates this occasion with him and his family at a formal dinner/dance called the Black and White Ball. (Pictured above is a 10-year comparison of me and Pastor Cosby)

So, anyone who knows me KNOWS that I look more forward to the Black and White Ball than my Birthday, Christmas or the Ending of Daylight Savings Time (woo an extra hour of sleep!). It's a chance to say thank you to the first family for their work in ministry...AND I get to DANCE! DANCE! DANCE!

With that being said, I was especially looking forward to the Ball this year, because I was planning to wear my size 18 Clearance Treasure Find from this summer.

Well not only did I get to wear the dress, but I had to have it altered. My seamstress had to completely remake the top (she cut 5 inches from the top and about 4 inches from the waist)...WOW! So, I believe that equates to maybe a misses size 12 or14 or 16 in the top ...Yay Me! (Note: I still haven't figured out how the Misses sizes work).

Anyway, I had a Ball at the Ball!!!! Plus while I was getting dressed I received a call from the Rep at Core Rhythms, they will be flying me to San Diego the weekend of November 9th for the filming of the infomerical...YAY ME!

So, now time to get back on the Ball...the Spark Ball that is.

No, my professional or personal to-do list has not scaled back one bit. As a matter of fact, life is more hectic now than ever. But I miss Sparking with my Spark Friends especially with the CCs and TQ17.

Plus I miss the sense of accountability that my Nutrition and Fitness Trackers provide...there's just something about knowing that my Spark Friends are watching my input and output helps to make me want to "behave" [smile]. For the most part, I am staying on track and continue to track everything manually and am not having any major issues with my ticker, BUT I know that I am periodically exceeding my daily nutrition limits (i.e. this past Saturday's Fried Food Fest that I indulged in...just can't resist my sister's home cooking!!!).

With that being said, my self-issued ON THE BALL challenge began yesterday. This challenge includes:

The usual Daily Stuff:
*8-10 Glasses Water
*2 Glasses Green Tea
*Cardio
*25+ Grams of Fiber


Plus:
*More prayer and meditation
*5 to 6 servings of fruits/vegetables~Daily
*Modified fast on Thursdays (no Meat or non-home cooked food)
*Aggressively monitoring my Sodium intake
*Strength Training (similar to the plan I followed during the CC Stronger Challenge)

Yes, I'm getting on the BALL after the Ball!!! Yay Me!

Evidence of FAITH...the CORE RHYTHMS phone call!!!

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

So, I was right! Yesterday I blogged about how when God is about to blow my mind, the enemy attempts to discourage me. I am so glad that I held on because today I received the evidence of what I have been hoping for.

First of all, I was re-approached by one of my company's vendors asking me for a before and after picture...he had another conversation with one of the producers from the Oprah Winfrey Show and they really need my picture to be considered as a guest on the show...don't even ask me how I overlooked that one on my mile long to-do list, but trust me I immediately went back to my office and got that action closed. Ya' know I LOVE OPRAH!!!

Well, that's not all....

As a few of my Spark Friends know, the last stage of Operation Janet Jackson includes some much needed cosmetic surgery. Even though I weigh 231.5 lbs. (yes, I'm back up 5 lbs.), a great percentage of the weight that I need to lose consists of excess skin that I am unable to tighten up with cardio and strength training . Although the Cardio Connoisseurs STRONGER Challenge really helped me to lose some more inches and one dress size, in all I have about 50 lbs. of excess skin (thank God for all over body girdles and Desitin!!!).

So today I had my 3rd consultation with one of the best plastic surgeons on the planet. I am happy to report that my full pitanguy abdominoplasty with belt lipectomy extension (a/k/a Janet Jackson Abs Procedure) is scheduled for the first week of December...YAY!!! The kicker is that he was planning to retire soon, but he has decided to hold off on retiring until he has "finished helping me." WOW!

Well if that wasn't enough while I was sharing the good news about my full pitanguy abdominoplasty with belt lipectomy extension with one of my best friends, at 3:50pm EST one of the producers of CORE RHYTHMS called. He started out by saying that I was being seriously considered as a testimonial for their next infomercial. WELL, by the end of the called instead of being considered he said that I would definitely be used as one of the testimonials, they would just need to finalize if they will tape me in my home or fly me to San Diego...well I'm open for either one.

The shoot is scheduled to take place the first two weeks in November and not only is there a possibility for me to meet Jaana and Julia (the Core Rhythms instructors). One of the judges from a famous reality dance show will also be there...could this be a chance to make my fantasy goal come true...to be a back-up dancer for Janet???

Needless to say, I AM OVERJOYED! GOD is good all the time and all the time GOD is good!!!

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9 KJV

"This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes..." Mark 12:11 KJV

"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us..." Ephesians 3:20 KJV

Guidance

Spirit within illumines my mind. I move forward with wisdom and clarity.
Gazing ahead at a flickering candle, I may see it as faint or remote.

However, as I approach it, the flame appears brighter. Like a candle in the distance, beckoning my arrival, the Spirit of God within leads me to right and perfect understanding.

As Spirit within illumines my mind, I am prayerfully guided. My inner vision is strengthened as I reflect upon choices of what to say and do. My inner light is a spiritual light that illumines all in my search for answers and direction.

I move forward with wisdom and clarity. Led to see the whole picture, I understand how important each part is to the whole. With assurance and confidence, I make right decisions on my path of discovery and inspire others on their own chosen paths.

“The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord, searching every innermost part.”—Proverbs 20:27

Be it, see it . . .

And so it is -

Fighting Feelings of DOUBT...the FAITH Factor

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Mark 11:22-24 NIV

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Today (10/8/07) has been one of the most challenging and stressful days that I have had in a long while. There was so much "stuff" going on professionally and personally that at numerous times today I found myself second guessing myself on EVERYTHING and was near tears!!!

Then when night began to fall, things became clear. Tomorrow is probably one of the most important days in my life. And it never fails, when God is about to do something that will absolutely blow my mind, the enemy tries to plant seeds of doubt in my mind to shake my faith.

Well, it almost worked until:

I went to workout with TJOI214, during our workout she ministered to me and DISSPELLED two of my doubts.

Then tonight I got an answer to one of my prayers from a member of the CC team (THANK YOU 100X!!!)...another doubt DISSOLVED!!!

Finally, I had a conversation with Mama that helped to remove and DISS my other doubts.

She said that tonight she decided to pray for me (WOW...there's nothing like your Mama praying for you!!!). She said that she started thinking about how I was when I weighed over 400 lbs. and heading at the speed of light to the 500 lbs. club. At times I couldn't catch my breath just from sitting still and it was especially worse at nights...there were nights that I would sleep in a chair in fear that I would suffocate in the middle of the night. She said that if I had not turned my health around, she is sure that I wouldn't be there today. Her pray was one of thanksgiving, thanking God for sparing my life... and for getting her and our family motivated to lose weight... she knows that He hasn't brought me this far to leave me.

Today I so needed to be reminded of that obvious fact...God has not brought me this far to leave me...and some of the things that I am allowing to stress me will soon be turned into things that will bless me. I've just got to hold on to my faith!!!

So if I can trust this same God to deliver me from a size 34/36W down to shopping in the Misses Section...can't this same God carry and keep me through all of the other "stuff"?

I think so...better yet I KNOW so! Amen.

I see the LIGHT...

Friday, October 05, 2007

This past week has been INSANELY hectic!!!

My days have been starting at 5am and ending at 1am. Yes, I've been running on sleep fumes!!! But thankfully after a VERY SUCCESSFUL Business Review with my customer things are starting to slow down (just a little bit) and I feel like I see the light at the end of my 'calendar tunnel'.

Even though I have been off my regular schedule, TOM arrived a whole week early, I've had no time to cook, I've only been able to drink 8 glasses of water a day and I've only been able to exercise approx. 45-60 mins. a day...I still lost one pound this week AND I believe that I've lost some inches too, because I can fit in one of my goal outfits (a cold- blooded Avocado Green tailored business suit...from the MISSES SECTION!!!). YAY ME!

Then everytime I think about Stage 4 of Operation Janet and the appointment that I have on 10/9...that light at the end of my 'fitness tunnel' shines just a little brighter....
