1 week down and still focused!

Friday, August 08, 2008

Aloha everyone! Thank you all so much for supporting me in my new beginning! It's going great! I have lost 4 pounds this week and I've exercised every day except Sunday, and gotten in tons of water.

It's paying off! I'm feeling so much better about myself and my clothes are already feeling better. I wore something yesterday that was too tight to wear in public just 2 weeks ago!

I'm holding on to my momentum and thankful for God helping me every step of the way. When I think I have no willpower left, He supplies it. :)

And I need it today! I'm baking my youngest's birthday cake today, a chocolate turtle. When I'm done, I reckon I'll post up a pic of it. Anyhow, anyone who knows me knows about my love of chocolate! I am stronger tho and will not mess up my focus, my perfect week or my drive! I'm on a roll!

Y'all are all such a wonderful source of encouragement and support! I'm loving my sparkfriends and hope all my newly found determination and stick-to-it-ness rub off on y'all!

My secret for doing well this week is no secret... it's stubborn determination, I-ain't-messin'-up-again attitude, sparkpeople and God.

    Renee' - Congratulations on your weight loss. I apologize for my lack of support but I was traveling last week. As usual, after traveling I need to get my eating back under control so I'm on this path with you now.

I can't wait to read about your succes this week.

Stay Blessed!!!

    Hi Renee',

There is something very special about a group of people that don't know each other personally and come together to give of them selves in a kind word of encouragement. All one has to do is put out the word that they are stumbling!

The internet is truly a miracle. The first time I was on Atkins, there wasn't support like this, that I knew of. emoticon Renee'. I am proud of you.
