August 25th and We are back from Hawaii. But WHAT A ADVENTURE. We went to Maui and the Island is beautiful. pictures and words cannot compare to actually being there. Lots and Lots of fish to eat. The Mountains were crisp and full of greenery. The Oceans beautiful and blue. Maui has both "black" sand beaches and "Reddish" brown sand beaches. The people are very warm and friendly and the experience was a once in a lifetime experience. Flowers were blooming everywhere. Their state flower is a Yellow Hybrisis. My eating while there was very good. This journey of healthy living goes hand in hand in Hawaii. I did gain 5 lbs over there but that was because I tried everything. I've already lost 3 of the 5 and have 2 to go. Again, my spark family, I just wanted to thank everyone who works so smart and share their experiences with us. This is the best way of life. ALOHA emoticon

    I'm glad you had a wonderful time. And it's pretty exciting that you are already getting rid of those pounds you picked up.I'd say that is a major accomplishment and it didn't take any enjoyment away from your wonderful trip.

28 days to HAWAII

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Hi Everyone:

I am so excited, it is now 28 days before my Hawaii trip and alot has happen since my last blog. My husband, Artie, had his second surgery and is now healing , so it looks like that will not be a deterrent to our trip. My new challenge to myself is to work out doing the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michael. I have join a team devoted to doing just that. Today 7/15/10 was my first day. I got to tell you that I feel great, motivated and very happy. I was singing on my way to work with more energy then I had in a long time. I have lost 20 lbs so far and I am so happy how all my size 8 clothes are now fitting me. I brought a new bathing suit and will try it out at the end of July before my trip. This journey is not going to stop after my trip but it is a life long journey. Thank you to all who have been encouraging to me. Those who post and really do not know how those post effect other people in a positive way. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Until we meet again GOD BLESS! emoticon emoticon

Back in February I wrote that I am so motivated to reach my weight lost goal because I had booked a trip to Hawaii. I wanted to bring you all up to date on my progess. As of April 9th I have lost 16.2 pounds and 14 inches total. I was jumping for joy today when I realized the progress that I have been making. It's truly a big accomplishment for me. I have alot more energy and I am working out at least 3X's per week. This is not just a vacation goal but a lifes journey that I am happy to be on. I have read many motivating blogs and just wanted to thank all of the encouragements we get here in Sparkpeople.com. I will continue to update all of us as time passes. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    We are almost at the same place in our progress so I know exactly what you are feeling. I've been fitting into clothes that did not fit last year so I'm having some fun with that. I've been under the weather for a couple of weeks so I'm having to take it somewhat easy on the cardio. 30 minute walks with the dogs is about all I can handle right now.

I love your excitement. You are beautiful and will be trim by Hawaii. emoticon

2010 Feels Great!

Thursday, February 04, 2010

NOW we are in 2010. One of my goals are to get to Hawaii this year. I would like to get there by August. Here's how I feel about it. I have been a good mother and provider for my children. Most of my life I have been a single parent. Now all of my 3 children are gone from home. Really nice adults and I enjoy talking and being with them. In 2005 I met my now husband and got married in 2006. I feel it's my turn to do something for myself. My FIRST goal, weight lost. I am still trying to lose those 40-50 lbs. But I have a new motivator. I was able to book that trip to Hawaii in Aug of 2010. So now I am truly motivated because I want my pictures to show less of me. When I put that flower in my hair this summer I want to feel proud that not only my Hawaii goal was met but also my weight lost goal. I can't explain to you the great feeling I'm feeling right now and I am so truly blessed to be able to share this with my Sparks friends. I can do this with all of your help and encouragements. Thank you so much!!! emoticon emoticon
