In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

A lot of people kept telling me about Spark People. I think I tried it once a few years back and never really gave it a chance. I've been hearing a lot of good things about it though and am told some of the recipes are awesome. So I decided to give it a REAL try. I also decided to give my weight-loss a REAL try. That started Sept. 2011 at 160 pounds. I've currently lost 21.8, weighing-in at 138.2 and I've 18.2 left to lose to reach my goal weight of 120. Since November I've been taking a HIIT class (high intensity interval training) and I LOVE it. I have also been working with a Personal Trainer since November. I've lost over 10 inches and look forward to my next assessment. I ran my first 1/2 Marathon in December and I have another scheduled for October in London. I run 5K's regularly and will be participating in my first Mud Run on Mother's Day. I've come a long way and I've still a ways to go, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now and I refuse to be stopped. I am planning to reach my goal or be within 5 lbs of it by July 4th 2012 - my personal Independce Day and I have HUGE things planned! I'm excited to be here and excited to continue this journey, share with you and learn from you. Here's to being Fit, Healthy, and Happy! Tonya
