Thank You To My FAMILY~~My Sources of Immediate Inspiration!!!!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Thank You to my toddler who says "Weight loss song ,Mommy!! Let's sing it!" Yesterday's blog has the lyrics I created [ and used the tune from "The Beat Goes On"]. He loves dancing so when we sing it, we BOTH dance,have FUN and get our AEROBICS in!!!!

Thank you to My Long-suffering Hubby!!!! I seem to be on Sparkpeople ALL the TIME to him and as it takes some time away, I'm trying to GIVE BACK the SUPPORT to HIM that he, in various ways has given to ME~~Especially on those TRYING TODDLER DAYS where he takes up the slack OFTEN!!!

Thank YOU ,MOST OF ALL to GOD ,for GIVING ME BOTH ,creating in ME ~~A loving WIFE and inventive,sometimes wacky, but ALWAYS FUN MOTHER!!!! emoticonBetsy

    My hubby has no idea how much time I spend on here.. I am able to be on at work while my client sleeps and after my chores are done.. Lucky me I know.. and even still I am having a hard time finding the time to get my quilt done... hmmmmm Priority is the key...

    I loved the way that you can make up a weight loss song and to be able to sing and dance to it with your toddler!

My husband thinks I'm obsessed with SP, too, so I try to only work on it when he and I aren't doing anything together or especially when he's not home!

Best wishes with your weight loss goals!!!

    This site has been wonderful for my health. Even my daughters have commented how much good it has done for me.

When we take care of the temple of God (our body) we are doing God's will!

It's Fun to See Our Positive Effects On Others !!!!!

Monday, May 17, 2010

I am a very positive,optimistic person!! That reason is knowing as Jesus as my Saviour but also that He is in control of my life. But what ALSO has been fun in my life since becoming a "SPARKER" , is seeing the positive effects on others as a result of WHAT I'M DOING!!!! I have gotten used to being 'leader of the pack' in my profession--teaching--I was a union rep. as well as a Master teacher for student teachers, plus as I'm a VERY talkative and forthright person, I would always EXPRESS my views on subjects ,whether popular or not. And more often than not, people would come up LATER and say " I feel that way,too!" as a form of support {though they didn't SPEAK UP at the time!}. I just want to say that it has been FUN ,THOUGH HARD WORK on this weight loss journey and seeing the REACTIONS to my wt. loss and eating healthier is GREAT! The MOMs Club, my hubby ,friends and neighbors have all supported me and especially all my SPARKFRIENDS and the people on this site! It seems healthy eating or getting that trim body is on people's minds and I LOVE that my weight loss is HELPING OTHERS!! IT'S A GREAT FEELING!!!! NOTE: SOME people who have seen the changes have actually made changes themselves--joined SP, started exercising MORE,eating HEALTHIER!! :) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonNote: I'll be posting some photos soon,but my 3 of my 4 SIBLINGS haven't SEEN ME yet!!!

Working The ABs to Get More Definition in Stomach!

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Now that swimsuit season is almost upon us, I did sneak in a peek to see how my suits from last year fit...and one didn't though I adjusted it! But the other two did. I did try on an old bikini and was happy! So now,I'm focusing on the abdominal muscles more and transverse{the side muscles that help hold up the front abs and add definition too!} I 'm waiting to get a NEW suit when I am at GOAL weight! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Well, working those abs will help to keep up your core strength. But remember, weight loss is all over, not just in one area.
