Hello ladies. It's been a long time but I'm glad to be back. Last year brought about a lot or rough patches for me that took me away from the group. But those rough patches only made me stronger and closer to God who will see me through all of them. I am glad to say that through it all I have been able to get into a size 14 from a size 18-20. I haven't seen a size 14 on this body in 17 years. Now that I have come through the fire and now climbing to the mountain top I am truly a WOAM.

Happiness keeps you sweet, Trials keep you strong, Sorrows keep you human, Failures keeps you humble, Success keeps you glowing, But only God Keeps you going!

Always Remember: Never Give Up Short of Your Goal.

Anna,

Thank you so much for your kind words. I love this group of ladies. They are truly amazing! I believe we are going to rock this year, because we're motivated to keep going despite challenges or obstacles that came in the way! We are really Women on a Mission and I'm glad that you're part of this team!

Ladies,

Last, but certainly not least, join me as we celebrate December's Woman on a Mission to close out 2008 Breakthrough Woman on a Mission:

VELVETCATT: emoticon

She is one of the most inspiration people I know. She is one of the WOAM who welcomes all members to the team as well as encourages others. This time around it is her turn to be celebrated. This WOAM has the goal to be healthier in terms of eating and exercise. She wants to make wise choices when it comes to food, which is why on her Sparkpage there is so much wisdom expressed. This diva is well on her way of achieving a NEW ATTITUDE. . . and a NEW WOMAN ON A MISSION!!

So, ladies, please put your hands together for December's Breakthrough Woman on a Mission, Ms. VELVETCATT!

Ladies,

September's Woman on a Mission: SAVED1

October's Woman on a Mission: HEPPME

emoticon emoticon emoticon

SAVED1: emoticon
SAVED1 is a woman who is striving to no longer practice unhealthy practices. Her goals are to exercise, eat a balanced diet, and get plenty of rest as well as change her inner self, then the outward beauty will be enhanced. She has set a goal of 20 pounds in 2009 and I know she is well on her way to reaching this goal! So, go girlfriend! You are an inspiration!

HEPPME: emoticon
HEPPME has the following goals: Lose weight but in a healthy manner by changing what she knows is not working, gain confidence in herself and believe in what she can accomplish, and to be a better role model for her child. Today, she actually ran an organized 5K for the first time. She took the risk and did something that scared her. Now, that's what I call a woman on a mission. HEPPME, way to go!

Ladies,

Please join me as we celebrate this special women, because they are worthy of the celebration and applause!

She joined Sparkpeople in March. Her are her goals: To be a size 10, spend more active time with kids, get and keep house organized and cleaned, keep to regularly scheduled prayer and bible study time, and be healither emotionaly, physically and spiritually. She led a sedentary lifestyle, but now has gotten up to execising 120 minutes a day! She is eating more healthy and has improved her home life as well. She has lost 18.8 pounds and is well on her way of reaching her goals. This woman is definitely worth celebrating, because she is not only working on the outside, but on the inside as well.

Ladies,

Join me as we celebrate our July Breakthrough Women on a Mission. These awesome women are the following:

LAKECLEAR48
LHEMPEN

These ladies participated in the Stopping Traffic challenge in July and lost some weight! Here are some short stories on our July Breakthrough WOAM!

LHEMPEN: emoticon emoticon emoticon
Lisa has lost 82 pounds since May 2007 as well as ran her first 5K in April 2008. This Woman on a Mission has lost close to 5 pounds in July's challenge. Her goals are to do cardio 4 times a week and strength training twice a week. She eats clean as well as sleep 7-8 hours a night and drink 60-70 ounces of water per day. Additionally, this awesome woman is going to run a 2K as well as celebrating her anniversary with Sparkpeople this month. Lisa keep up the great work, because you are well on your way of reaching your goal weight! emoticon

LAKECLEAR48: emoticon emoticon emoticon
This great lady lost 5 pounds last month with the challenge. Her belief is the following: Time to get off the couch, time to stop the eating compulsion, time to stop making excuses. This time it's about her! She is loving herself, taking care of herself, motivating herself and hopefully at the same time motivating others! If she can do this and she can love others, take care of others. Her goals are simple, but powerful: To be healthy and happy, To feel and look my best, To be a better me! LAKECLEAR48, you are doing amazing! emoticon

So, ladies give a round of applause for our two July Breakthrough Women on a Mission!

Stevie

Ladies,

Once more, please post any results to the challenges on the challenge forum. Thank you for letting us know how you are progressing, but this is not the forum for that! No weigh-ins are to be posted on this forum. This forum is dedicated specifically for announcing and celebrating the Monthly Breakthrough Women on a Mission! So, please let's stop posting results on this forum! This will hold off any confusion!

Sincerely,

Stevie

She was dedicated to her workouts and really pushed herself!

This awesome woman is well on her to reaching her goals. Great job LOOSINGMYSELF! emoticon

KATIEM5: Katie is another WOAM who pushed it in June's challenge. She really pushed herself with her workouts. She has been dedicated with the challenges that have been presented with this group. Katie of is truly an example of a woman who does not give up! Even for July's challenge, she is a woman who has renewed energy and determination. Katie, you go girlfriend! emoticon

STRIVE4BALANCE: This amazing woman has survived a lot in her life. She also lost 20 from April to June! She is losing steadily! Her goals are simple, but powerful. They are the following: to make healthy lifestyle habits, to be 150 lbs. and healthy, and to be comfortably active. She is committed to following the plan by Sparkpeople, to journal calories & exercise, to exercise in a fun way as well as being realistic with herself.

Hi everyone..hoppe that all had a great holiday week I struggled a little bit on Saturday but pulled through nicely on Sunday..lol

I did a lot of cardio on sunday to make up for my hand meeting my mouth so much on saturday : )

My goal this week since I am feeling great is to burn 2500 calories. I am feeling really great with pushing my limits on the cardio machines so I am hoping this will be a great goal and challenge for me.

How is everyone else doing today?

got my 40 minutes of cardio in last night with interval training on the Arc. I am at a whole new level with my cardio so I am pretty excited.
Also ran five laps in the gym and walked four (interval)

emoticon Breakthrough women!!! I am new to Spark but not new to the weight struggle. I have been checking out teams and I have to tell you I'm really impressed with how many on this team are at least halfway to goal. It is very encouraging!!!

I'd like to share the best and most effective diet tip I ever got, "Use a saucer instead of a plate." It works, more meals of smaller portions emoticon

Ladies,

Join me as we celebrate the following Women on a Mission for the month of May! These ladies have challenged themselves this past month! The Breakthrough Women are the following:

DOAA30 emoticon
BUTTERFLIBABY72 emoticon
KELLYLINK emoticon
ANNEROUSSEAU emoticon

Here are short stories on our outstanding women:

DOAA30: Despite not reaching the 300 minute weekly goal of cardio, Doaa did press in to reach 200-250 minutes a week of cardio. Additionally, our mother of 2 lost 8 pounds on the challenge! WooHoo! Her goal is to lose weight for her family as well as for her health! She exercises and eats healthy! And this little lady joined our team in late April and look at her progress! Doaa you are a true inspiration! emoticon

BUTTERFLIBABY72: Jennifer is another WOAM, who joined us in April! Jennifer has really pressed in on our May challenge! She was determined not to let herself make excuses for not exercising. She found the time. The last time she checked into the forum, she lost 3 pounds on the challenge and looks great on her sparkpage! Go and check this hot mama out! Jennifer keep the motivation going and watch you reach for the stars! emoticon

KELLYLINK: Kelly has a simple goal of wanting to run and play without being tired! She is on a quest to love life and to lose weight in order to enjoy it more! This awesome lady really pressed in to get those 300 minutes weekly cardio goals. On May 22nd, our amazing mother of 2 lost 3 pounds! Kelly, you are well on your way of enjoying life more! Way to go! emoticon

ANNEROUSSEAU: Last, but certainly not least is our xtreme queen: Anne! Anne joined our team this month. Anne has made a commitment to exercise and eat right, and she has managed to get the weight off and keep it off! Our extreme queen even up the antis, by putting herself on an 28-day extreme challenge, which continues to consist of cardio, stretching, strength training and clean eating. On May 19th, Anne reported that she lost 4 pounds. Anne, you are the extreme queen! emoticon

Ladies, please give a round of extreme applause for all of our May Breakthrough Women on a Mission! You all rocked this month! Keep up the work! Here's a hug from me to you! emoticon

You know, I am four days late in reading the emails in my inbox and reading this post-I am so sorry for being out of the loop (embarrassing lol!), please don't think I was ignoring this. Wow, I am just really speechless and excited!!

Thank you for making me the April WOAM, the honor means a lot to me. During the month of April, I dug down deep to find determination, fire and honesty with myself that I, as well as everyone else here, can meet their goals and that there is no shortcut to good health and success in anything that we desire in this life. That Back to Basics Challenge did a lot for me, it gave me something to work towards and that accountability that I needed, and it helped me to see that yes Kisha, you can do it, so get off of the sidelines and get in the game! I hope to see more challenges of that kind down the line. I've been here on Spark for almost 2 years, and can't remember a time where I have been more in the moment than now, and it feels great. I am so glad that I came back to this team after being absent for a long time, and am really in it to win this time around. Like I have said before, I am going to take my time with this, my goals are not opened ended but the process is one that is lifelong and I look forward to learning new things about my body, myself, and hope to one day be a motivation to other people who are like me.

Thank you Stevie and all of you WOAM, continue to spread the spark!

Ladies,

Please join me in celebrating our Breakthrough WOAM for April: KISHASC

She participated in our "Back to the Basics" Challenge and gained a total of 76 points for the entire challenge. She believes that a slow and steady pace is going to help her win this weight loss race. I completely agree with her. Despite some challenges she has faced in this journey, she continues to press on through and never give up on herself. She has the mindset that she is not going to be defeated by what the scale states. She has set realistic goals and wants to achieve a more defined body with low bodyfat. Her plan to achieve this is working out with cardio for 30 minutes 5 times a week with strenght training 2 times a week as well as staying within her calorie intake.

This woman on a mission is well on her way of achieving her goals. So, join me as we celebrate this awesome WOAM! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ladies,

Here are our March Breakthrough Women on a Mission! I selected 5 women from each team we had this in March's challenge. So, here they are: emoticon

From Team Tulip: Ms. Iren (IREN0169) emoticon

Iren was a serious inspiration on this last challenge. For 2 weeks, she logged in over 100 miles through riding her bike. She has a goal to lose 40 pounds by July and is working on developing her eating habits. Ms. Iren is definitely ready for a change, by incorporating new cardio workouts as well as working those muscles. She is truly an inspiration to continue to challenge herself to be the best Iren she can be! Hats off to you, Iren!

From Team Daisy: Amber (AMBER_007) emoticon

Amber really worked during this past challenge! She is well on her way to becoming the Incredible Shrinking Woman as well as being on the mission to getting back in shape. She has accomplished one of her goals to quit smoking and is well on her way to achieving her goal to loss 30 pounds. Additionally, she has goals to become cardiovascularly fit and gain muscle mass. Despite certain obstacles, she is becoming wiser and stronger and before we know it, she will truly be the Incredible Shrinking Woman. Way to go, Amber!

Team Rose: MIREBAH emoticon

MIREBAH is a Hot Mama in Training! She joined our team this past month and rocked in March's Mileage Challenge. Her focus is building muscle, to lose fat and become a serious athlete. This mighty Woman on a Mission is focused, motivated, and determined to reach her established goals. She is taking baby steps in her weight loss journey: eating more fresh fruits, drinking water and stretching. We say, MIREBAH, don't despise the small beginnings, because they can definitely reap great rewards! You go, girlfriend!

Team Sunflower: JoAnn (TEXASTICTCHER) emoticon

Ms. JoAnn kept increasing her mileage during the challenge. She has lost 60 pounds and is definitely one of the most motivating WOAM! She wants to continue to lose 5 pounds per month, while recording her food and exercise. Her philosophy is not to be afraid to go slowly! With this goal and philosophy, she wants to be at her target weight by April 2009. With the determination this WOAM has, there is no doubt that this will be achieved by this amazing woman! Congrats on your progress thus far, JoAnn!

Team Lily: TEXASFRIENDLY66 emoticon

Last, but certainly, not least, Ms. TEXASFRIENDLY66! Now, this WOAM is definitely on a mission. She actually gets up at 3:00 am to workout on her treadmill, she also walks during her breaks at work, and she walks at night as well. That's what I call determination to reach your goals. She wanted to connect with good people that are in the same boat as her and I am so glad that she decided to join our group. She is truly looking forward to reaching her goal this year and I am inspired to see her accomplish this with us! Keep up the great job, TEXASFRIENDLY66!

Let's put our hands together and celebrate each of these marvelous WOAM! Ladies, each of you rocked in March's challenge! Keep doing what you're doing! emoticon

Now who will be April's Breakthrough Woman on a Mission? emoticon We shall see!

I couldn't believe that I was chosen this month, thank you all!

If it wasn't for all of you, I would still be in a complete mess, waiting for the end to arrive, but now I feel like I could climb mountain's, because I know that you all would be there for support!

Thank you!

Ladies,

This was a tough decision! January's Breakthrough Women on a Mission are the following ladies:'

ROSIEPJ
SASHMIL
SHER65

These women surpassed their established workout minutes for January's challenge. Here are short synapose on this month's Breakthrough Women.

ROSIEPJ used to weigh as much as 262 pounds. Isn't that hard to believe since she looks so tiny in her SP photo? She is now engaged and this has given her even more incentive to become healthier. An example of this is her determination in her running. She wants to run a 5K as well as a 10K. Also, we know she is going to be a beautiful bride! Way to go, Rosie. You are such an example.

SASHMIL has lost 35 pounds since September. She works out 6 days a week and since starting this challenge, she has lost 3 pounds as of 1/21/08. She is even using a creative technique to track her weight loss: Paper Clips(Please go by her Sparkpage to get more information about this). Additionally, she is becoming more aware what to focus on as well as asking for help! SASHMIL continue on being focused and you will meet that 125-pound goal before you know it!

SHER65 is a great example of perseverance. Despite a hip injury, this woman truly pressed in and still surpassed her challenge goal. Additionally, despite the holidays, Sher is about becoming healthier through exercise and making better health choices. The proof of this was her goal staying within her calorie range. Despite the 50% of eating within her calorie range, she stopped eating after 8:00 pm. Once more, she persevered. Sher, you are an awesome lady!

Ladies, please join me as we congratulate these wonderful Women on a Mission! Despite struggles or concerns, they persevered. Each of them are truly an inspiration in their own right!

Ladies,

Like in 2007, in 2008, I want to continue to select a WOAM on a monthly basis, who has been doing outstanding. This is similar to the Employee of the Month. I will be checking the Testimonies, Sparkpages, as well as the Monthly challenges to see which WOAM has done exemplary, though all of you will. However, I want to place a spotlight on one or two in particular. If you want to send me a personal note on how many inches or pounds you lost as well as a success story, please do so! This will definitely help with the selection process.

I believe this will help motivate others to strive to have a Breakthrough Success Story! Who will the WOAM highlighted be this month? Will it be you? We shall see!
