Sparkfriends, I finally got over the 60 lbs hump today and THAT before one year is up December 8th! I also, joined a gym this week, though I've yet to get there.. what's up with THAT?
We went out yesterday morning to buy my husband some gym clothes and shoes and by the time I got done, I was DONE! I shopped in the wrong shoes and my knees and ankles were hurting so bad; am hoping this morning will begin a new routine for the both of us ...and, wouldn't it be nice to see another 10 lbs gone before the end of the year?
Yes, I've lost slow and even had some up and downs this past year, but I am so glad I am not where I was last year at this time! My arms actually fit down to my sides ..and I like it!
I am having a very bad hair day in this picture but here is a recent one..
and to compare it, here is an older one of me..
Yes, I need better before pictures, I'll get them on here one of these days!

I have decided that I do not like nor will I tolerate negative naysayer's .. don't tell me ounces don't count or diets don't work, they work if YOU work them! If those numbers on the scale are working for you, don't let people rob you of your success and joy.
If you have health issues, don't use it as an excuse to give up, look at my friend Beth [Indygirl], she's lost 250 lbs and has had more health issues than you can shake a stick at and yet she's still here [committed, devoted] we need to watch our excuse making.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Holidays.. more reasons to make excuses to binge? I think NOT!
I can't believe it, but I realized last weekend that I eat when I'm unhappy, I eat to make myself FEEL HAPPY! No more excuses, we are to find our Joy, Peace and Happiness in the Lord! Yes, I am taking this serious, I DO NOT want food taking God's place in my life!!!
Ok, my vent is done!
Let's hit the ground running this Holiday Season!!!
P.S. Here is Beth's link if you haven't met her yet: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=%7

What a journey I've been on the past 9 day's, yo-yoing back and forth with wanting to throw the towel in and yet telling myself NOT TO GIVE UP! Frankly, I got upset at the end of last month when the scale went up after putting in one of the best months so far this year; I had added walking every morning [at the crack of dawn] and yet the results for the month of Sept was going to show a big gain??? ..and it didn't go right back down either but seemed to stick to that higher number all week, and even went up another lb [talk about fighting depression]; I seriously thought about throwing the towel in but instead I kept coming to SP and reading the success stories and finally yesterday my body decided to release a lb and today 3.. now I'm only 6 oz from where I was ..and yes, I'm glad I didn't give up!!!
So what did I do differently? I got a cold and stopped walking!!! NOW what do I do when I get better, do we walk or not walk? Stupid question, but I'm a little worried.. I know muscle weighs more but, does walking build muscle? and could it be THAT? or .. does anyone know what would cause a weight gain like this? I am torn about walking now, but know it's better to tighten and tone than to let myself become weaker.. (Wish I would have taken my measurements, at least my clothes feel looser .. )
Has anyone else ever had an unexplained gain like this? I have wondered if it could be my age.. menopause? (Sorry guys!)

Two young girls who just started coming to Youth Group were in a horrible accident this afternoon.. please pray for Jesse and Kendra who are fighting for their lives.
Jesse's body is badly broken and she's in critical condition with a broken back in three places and her neck is broken, she has a fracture that goes from her forehead to the back of her head, and her brain is badly swollen..if it get's any worse she won't make it. So far, she's alive and making a little bit of progress.
Kendra is a doll, but her beautiful face is crushed, she's in surgery right now, to try to put her face back together, please, please pray for her. She has a broken pelvis, broken jaw, a fracture to the neck and back.. broken eye socket. These girls are in a bad way.. could you pray for them and pass it on to anyone that you know who prays? Pray for their Salvation and healing.. & their family too. Kendra is being raised by her young brother who looks VERY young.. and he is terrified of losing her. (Not sure but I think they only have each other.)
Please pray for them.. they are such beautiful little girls who need Jesus!
