WOW! <BR> <BR> I was totally blown away to get the email that I had been nominated to the rank of SparkPeople Motivator. I must admit that I haven’t been overly active on SparkPeople since I met my goals last summer! Out living my new life with Sensa has been all consuming at times. Between both girls in school this year, working full time and trying to sleep once in a while and traveling for Sensa when they call… I find little time for much in terms of being online f...

Happy Birthday to me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4799548 March 20th was my 37th Birthday! I feel younger than ever and am having a great month. Just wanted to drop a line to everyone to show how 3 yrs have changed my life! I have lost 118 lbs with Sensa and I can't begin to explain how my life has been changed in the process! But since a picture is worth a 1000 words, we will go with that, cause I can't even put to words my joy in life at this point. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/3/l431766150.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Thanks to...

Up and down 5 lbs at times, nothing life altering anymore! I can get it all back off with Sensa by my side and clean eating! <BR> <BR> I just really wanted to share my latest Sensa Testimony with everyone. It isn't really new, because it was taped in June 2011, but it is just now being released! So here it is!

I haven't met my goals for everything on any day yet. I meet one or two and fail on others. I traveled with a friend, her child and my kids to Dallas on Saturday and didn't eat remotely clean, so it kinda blew the weekend. I got back on the food track on Monday, but even then, didn't stay on the exercise track. Feeling totally un-motivated. I have a toe that is hurting and thus not wanting to walk as much as I said I would. Just feeling lazy and hungry and ...

I started living my life to the fullest in order to reach my goals!! <BR> <BR> When I reach my goal of losing 100 lbs, it will be a great day, but still just one day… the last 20 months I have spent in getting to where I am now and the months I still have ahead of me till I reach that day - will not be forgotten though. They were lived to the fullest most of the time and many great memories made... Thu, 21 Oct 2010 16:25:38 EST Self Perception http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3681937 Ok, sometimes it is hard to really understand how far you have come and how different your body really is. This is because you see the gradual progression and in your mind your own visual perceptions don't always change with your clothing sizes. <BR> <BR> Last night I was grocery shopping in the cereal aisle when a lady in an electric scooter crossed my path. She was looking at oatmeal products, as I was. I asked her if I could assist her in reaching anything. She gratefully told me the fl... Thu, 30 Sep 2010 11:25:08 EST Losing with SENSA Helped Me Win $1000! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3657762 I have been using Sensa since Feb 2009 and to date have lost over 84 lbs! I was invited back in April along with a number of Sensa Success Stories to LA for a Success Story weekend! We were pampered, photographed and had video testimonies taken! This week they have announced the winners and I am one of them!!!! I am so grateful to Sensa for all they have blessed me and my family with! <BR> <BR> See the link below for the official announcement and before/after shots of me and other winners! <... Tue, 21 Sep 2010 10:10:53 EST Latest Updates from Sensa and ShopNBC Land http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3565992 Sensa was on ShopNBC this weekend, and though I wasn’t there, the footage taken in April 2010 was used for the first time and the photos. I also called in to give my testimony over the phone. So I thought I would share. It is funny to me that I haven’t lost a lot of weight since going to LA in April, but I feel like I look a lot thinner than the pictures/video show. Course maybe it is just the camera adding 10 lbs… LOL! <BR> <BR> <link>www.shopnbc.com/OnAir/ProgramGuide/D<BR>efault.aspx?... Mon, 23 Aug 2010 12:50:47 EST My Next Adventure http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3086268 Ok, all my SENSAtional Friends - I am starting a team for the Race for Cure 5k Walk on May 8th. I am looking for teammates. You don’t have to be a SENSA user to join me. I have called the team SENSAtional Friends, because SENSA has been my inspiration and has helped me get to where I am today. If you think you might be interested and would like to join a team for the moral support, please join me. I am not looking for jogging partners, just few friends to walk with me for a good cause! <BR> ... Tue, 6 Apr 2010 10:20:50 EST First Race Results! Tyler Azalea 10k! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3050960 Here is a quick intro to my jogging history! <BR> <BR> I started walking in September. I could rarely get to 5000 steps a day, then I got closer to 7000 and such, but almost never 10000, unless on the weekends! <BR> <BR> I started Couch to 5k jogging program at Thanksgiving. That is a program designed to take you from walking to jogging a full 30 mins. I completed that program in mid January. <BR> <BR> I picked this 10k race to run with only 8 weeks to train from 30 mins to 90 mins of jogg... Sat, 27 Mar 2010 23:05:56 EST 10k Last Minute Tips Anyone??? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3046079 So tomorrow morning is the first ever race in my life. I opted for a 10k instead of a 5k, just due to the location and timing really. I am not as well trained as I wanted to be due to hurting my foot a bit in early March and having to take 2 weeks off. So at this point I feel good, but a little under trained. I have only done 5 miles 2 times and I haven't done the full 6.25ish miles that is a 10k yet at all. I have been limited on time on my run days recently or I might have managed a 6 mile ... Fri, 26 Mar 2010 11:47:19 EST My Next 15 Mins of Fame! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2961825 There is so much to catch up on...I don't know where to start. <BR> <BR> SENSA!!!!!! I am starting Month 14! I have lost over 70 lbs! They have invited me to appear on ShopNBC on March 12/13th as a live in-person testimonial. I will meet a few of my online friends there. I will get to meet Dayna Devon in person. I will get to listen while other friends of mine call in to give their testimonials! I will get to have professionals do up my hair and makeup and maybe I will finally learn how! I ... Fri, 5 Mar 2010 11:12:49 EST The Great Fall of Me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2824629 Well, thought it needed a catchy title. <BR> <BR> So let's start on Saturday when it was lightly snowing (more like just blowing someone's dandruff around) and it was like 30 degrees out. I got all bundled up and jogged for 3 miles and even managed to average 13 min miles. Then I walked 1 more mile for good measure. Then I went home and defrosted. <BR> <BR> Then on Sunday afternoon, it was perfect. Sunny, maybe 45 and just a lovely day. So I got all dressed and started out. Did my walk aro... Mon, 1 Feb 2010 10:15:45 EST WLB101092 - Sensa Changed My Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2741866 So I thought I would outline my story all the new users to see... hope it will inspire just one person to keep using Sensa and work with it to change your life! <BR> <BR> Below are my Monthly stats for Sensa! <BR> <BR> Month 1 7.5 <BR> Month 2 6.5 <BR> Month 3 6.5 <BR> Month 4 9.5 <BR> Month 5 2.5 <BR> Month 6 5 <BR> Month 1 (7) 6.3 <BR> Month 2 (8) 4 <BR> Month 3 (9) 6.2 <BR> Month 4 (10) 5.6 <BR> Month 5 (11) 2.5 <BR> Month 6 (12) 3 so far <BR> Total... Wed, 13 Jan 2010 20:30:40 EST Just Dance - My Fav Fitness Game http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2697663 Ok, so I am not a dancer or even a remotely decent dancer... and I have cheezy taste in music. I will listen to the Jonas Brothers and Hannah with my kids and not even bat an eyelash. But I love this new game for the Wii. It is called Just Dance. It has a ton of hits of different time periods... you know the songs, either you love them or hate them really. But that isn't the point at all. Put this game in and shake it all for all your worth in the privacy of your own home and watch the calori... Tue, 5 Jan 2010 11:33:24 EST Twas the Week After Christmas http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2670202 Twas the week after Christmas and all through the house <BR> Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. <BR> <BR> The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste. <BR> All the holiday parties had gone to my waist. <BR> <BR> When I got on the scales there arose such a number! <BR> When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber). <BR> <BR> I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared; <BR> The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared, <BR> <BR> The wine and the rum balls, the bread and ... Wed, 30 Dec 2009 22:18:52 EST 65 lbs lost so far... can I make it to 70 before 2010?!? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2626810 Well, as seems to be the norm for me... I am 2 weeks of no real loss, then 2 weeks of good losses and back and forth. I guess as long as the stalling doesn't kill me each time, I am good. This week I have lost 3 lbs when over the past 3 weeks I had only lost 1 lb and could hardly keep it off. Just 2 more pounds essentially and I will be at 199! Finally that dang 2 number gone. I am 201 today and just about over the moon! I only wanted to be under 200 before Christmas and I am going to make it... Fri, 11 Dec 2009 11:58:14 EST I have lost 60lbs with Sensa at my side this year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2583726 I noticed it had been a while since I blogged about my best friend, Sensa! So thought I would post a recent update. I don’t have any pictures to go with this one, but I think the number can speak for themselves! <BR> <BR> I will give you the whole outline of my progress, and you can decide for yourselves! <BR> <BR> January 2009 – Starting planning to diet. Used Slim Fast products for a few weeks and lost 2.5 lbs. <BR> <BR> February 2009 – Started using Sensa on 2/6/2009. Lost 7.5 lbs in 30...

That is 4 generations in that picture. I had already started losing weight, but it wasn't yet noticeable, less than 10 lbs. But I had found my motivation and I was going to do it. Note the little angels in the pictures, they are mine and I wanted to keep up and enjoy life with them for a long time! <BR> <BR> I lost about 20 lbs before I found Sp...

I don't win raffles, bingo, or much of anything really. But yet, in the last 2 months I have won 2 different weight loss contests! I am so excited. Especially, since it hasn't been as hard for me as it could have been. Sensa is making it easy and I am so grateful for it!!! This week I won Wii Fit Team - Summer Biggest Loser Contest! I am so excited about the prize too! I need a Yoga Mat really bad and I will be able to get one from SparkPeople now... Tue, 22 Sep 2009 10:13:48 EST Over 45 lbs Lost in 2009! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2382262 Well, it has been a while since I updated my progress, other than my weekly stats on my front page. So thought I should post a little something so everyone knows I am still here and kickin. And to let everyone know that Sensa is still working for my 2nd round. The Sensa program is 6 months, and then you repeat it if you have more to lose. I am likely to repeat it at least 2 times and I am already in the 2nd month of the 2nd round. So thought I would post some stats here to show everyone and ... Tue, 8 Sep 2009 10:05:49 EST Like...Like... OMG!!!

Fri, 7 Aug 2009 18:08:39 EST 40 lbs Lost in 2009! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2278261 Right now I am not jumping up and down for some reason, though I know I should be. I don't feel all that impressed at the moment, since I don't really even have anyone to tell that is going to really get excited for me. I can't even go get a pedicure or anything, which is a total bummer. I am just going to play with my beautiful kids today and enjoy life, and try to forget that I still have more than 60 lbs to lose so I am not even half way yet. <BR> <BR> 40 lbs lost since start 2009. <BR> ...

So I got one with a DVD workout too. I took it home, inflated the ball and while cleaning in my daughter's room, sat on it a while to get used to it. I also put the DVD on in her room to see if I thought I could handle the wor... Wed, 22 Jul 2009 11:03:44 EST Month 6 Sensa / EA Active 30 Day Challenge (Take 2) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2208280 So tonight I started my second round of EA Active's 30 Day Challenge. I didn't lose much weight the first time, so I am hoping to strike a better balance with weight and inches lost this time. I am starting my 6 month of using my secret weapon (that I share with anyone interested) Sensa. So far I have lost 32.5 lbs using Sensa and recently adding EA Active. I have lost a grand total of 35 lbs for the year! <BR> <BR> So for everyone's review... <BR> Month 1 Sensa = 7.5 lbs lost <BR> Month 2 ...

I must say it was a great month in a lot of ways in terms of my being able to finish something like this. I hadn't been all that active before this, though I had played with the EA Active work outs for about 2 weeks before I started the actual Challenge. Wanted to try all the stuff out a little before starting the Challenge. And I am really glad I did. I did enough to get past the major soreness issues that might have di...

Wed, 17 Jun 2009 16:21:38 EST Sensa - My BFF of 2009 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2138136 What is Sensa? <BR> <BR> Sensa is unlike any other weight-loss program. It is a 6-month system of Tastants that are sprinkled on your food to help you feel full faster, stay satisfied longer and lose weight. <BR> <BR> It is not a diet. You can continue to eat all your favorite foods and still lose weight. There are no prepackaged meals, stimulants, drugs or diuretics. <BR> <BR> It uses your senses of smell and taste to control appetite. Although many people think the feeling of hunger or ...

Fri, 5 Jun 2009 11:25:23 EST My In-Home Track Race http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2115446 As some may have noted, I have a Wii and I have the new exercise game called EA Active. I bought a double set of bands needed to allow a partner work out with you, cause my 7 year old likes to do it with me, when I fix up short custom games for us to play. Ok, so that isn't the funny part. Though watching the two of us work out together probably is pretty funny. <BR> <BR> The funny part comes from the baby, almost 2, that wants to do anything me or big sis does. So she standing with us and d...

I am so pumped at the moment! I got the new Wii game EA Active and I have really been trying to use the cardio workouts. This is the first I have really worked out on a regular basis in years and the first since starting Sensa. <BR> Sunday to Thursday = 4 Workouts = 123 Minutes = 1000 Calories burned. <BR> <BR> And if you knew the hectic schedule I have been on this week, you would know what a real accomplishment this... Fri, 29 May 2009 09:44:10 EST Finally the 240s are gone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2093921 I finally changed weight brackets!!! I have lost just over 10% of my body weight so far! And I am already 1.5 lbs into the next 10% loss goal that is 24 more pounds! (that means only 22.5 left till end of second goal. I am using my new EA Active for the Wii and loving it. I am not a gym person, who has time with small children and working full time. So this way the kids can watch and help and get in the way, but that is what makes it family fun! <BR> <BR> I updated my virtual me..she hasn'... Tue, 26 May 2009 10:36:27 EST OMG! Don't be afraid!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2053259 So my Mother's Day was spent enjoying a dose of chlorine at a local indoor water park! I got into my favorite bathing suit, though a little snug, not embarassingly so, at least I hope not. Hubby said I could be seen in it in public. I had a ball and though I still have 10-15 lbs to go before I am comfy in the bathing suit, life goes on. I rode the water slides with and without inner tubes and I can't recall the last time I did something like that, let alone just climb the stairs to get to the... Mon, 11 May 2009 16:27:11 EST Blue Jeans http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2044881 Got into blue jeans this week! I don't buy blue jeans in the 20+ sizes. So I had to get down to an 18W before I could get back into any I had put away. Got a pair on today! Size 16 here I come! Fri, 8 May 2009 10:29:22 EST Tired of having no one to talk to... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2023189 So I am tired and lonely in a way. I have gotten 4 different people to try Sensa with me, but they are all nearly 3 months behind me in the program. So we don't have a lot in common in the way of successes to share. I feel like if I talk about my success too much, it will sound like bragging. <BR> <BR> At home, no one discusses my weight, good, bad or otherwise. My kids are too little and my darling husband too politically correct. My best friend is too small (though she is an encouragi...

Fri, 1 May 2009 12:49:32 EST During Picture - 04/29/09 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2016336 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/7/0/b709881037.jpg"> <BR> <BR> So I am not going to call this an after picture... have way too far to go still, but it is a "during" picture. It is funny how this picture doesn't make me feel as good as I did looking at myself in the mirror this morning... but I still know it is way better than the before picture I posted last night. This picture is after losing 21 lbs this year and 18.5 of that with Sensa. Don't know how long it will be before ... Wed, 29 Apr 2009 10:25:54 EST Before Picture http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2015357 Ok, it nearly physically hurt to post this before picture, but it is fair. So think I will have some taken this weekend at a family gathering to show my progress!! Also note the camera... I am the family photographer!!! So I can't be in the pictures! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/3/9/b396190883.jpg"> Tue, 28 Apr 2009 23:14:22 EST
