I pledge that no matter how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, to forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

Fellow sparkers,i didn't feel like doing this but i owe it to you and to my self to let you know i fell off the wagon.
I let the stress of this month weigh me down completely-
didnt exercise,i binged OMG . . . promised to work on it and the result I GAINED 10 pounds.
In Nigeria,its a bit stressful when the kids are entering the Secondary schools (don't know what you call it over there could it be high school) especially boarding schools and two of my kids went to 2 seperate boarding schools outside my state.
The preparations and my hectic office duties weighed me down.
I am hiding myself in SHAME,Please bear with me . . I hope this doesn't repeat itself again.
SO SORRY,dear SPARKERS!

I know my main hurdle is my NUTRITION, I must be fully in control of what i take into my body.
I will be back at the end of each month for my progress report . . . SPARKERS, if you don't get to see my monthly UPDATE,PLEASE PLEASE DEMAND FOR IT.

. . . can't believe that these little things i am doing is being noticed. How do i thank you SP, Sparkteams, Sparkfriends and all Sparkers,without you i wouldn't have been motivated enough.
I maybe loosing weight slowly but i am definitely far from where i was 18 months ago. I also have a target of achieving my goal weight of 75 kilos by my birthday in February 2014,CAN I DO IT? YES,I CAN AND WILL ACHIEVE MY GOAL.
I do have a hard time with my feeding but when i slip back,i pull myself up and move forward.
I am really enjoying my blue ribbon,hope i am motivating others to work harder because it definitely pays off with being dedicated,disciplined and consistent .
love ya all!
