I ate things I didn't exercise, and I was lazy. I was going to take another week off but I felt my shorts feeling right instead of lose and I was not happy. <BR> <BR> I decided no more I'm ready to bring the fight back to my workouts and my healthy eating!!

I looked good and I knew it, no I'm not conceded or I wasn't I was just confident. <BR> <BR> I think as we gain weight and become less healthy we also lose some of our confidence. When we look in the mirror and don't like who is looking back at us, we start losing that confidence. <BR> <BR> What we forget is that with hard work and a healthy lifestyle we can regain our con... Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:41:35 EST Discipline http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5560629 I read a little while ago that Discipline is doing what you have to do when no one else is watching you!!! Although I agree with this God is always watching what I do and I'm very thankful for his guidance. I truly believe that God helps us but if we are to overcome certain disciplinary failures we have to stand tough and remember how far we have come and how far we want to go!! I think we need to focus more on discipline until this new lifestyle because that is what it is, I refuse to call ...

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 09:19:14 EST Trying to break out of the same weight!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5544223 So I weighed in Saturday and was at the exact same weight. I feel better, my clothes fit better but the scale it no move :-) I've gotten to the point where I care about the scale but I care more about seeing my abs before I go to see my maker, and every little bit helps. I think I can get there by next year ... well at least I'm hoping I do.. and don't you know when that happens pictures will be everywhere :-) <BR> <BR> Be strong, have fun, make today count sparksisters and brothers!!

So my son and I were at the gym a whole 30 minutes before he arrived and was like "you guys want to start early" that's when we told him the error of his ways and he was sorry and said we can meet tomorrow, which works for us. But more importantly instead of being down we did more elliptical... Mon, 11 Nov 2013 06:47:26 EST One week at a time!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5537427 I decided that since I weigh in once a week on Saturdays, I will take it one week at a time that way I don't overstress myself with a monthly goal!! I would have taken it one day at a time but I feel that it's to little I want a weekly goal and I will achieve my goal!! <BR> <BR> What about you spark sisters and brothers do you go by the day, week, month or even yearly!! Or better by holiday's?? <BR> <BR> Either way we will continue to kick butt and take names!! Lets do this!! <img src="http...

If you have a misstep and you fall in to a binge, or if an injury sidetracks your efforts, anything that makes you fall!!! We wont stay down we get up, dust ourselves off and get back in the fight. <BR> <BR> I think that's what makes us stronger than some for we have endured physical and psychological pain and drama and we did not throw in the towel!! <BR> <BR> Remembe...
