Welcome Cendrine!!! Good luck with that challenge. I know what its like to lose weight for a wedding. I did that for my wedding last year. I lost 29 pounds with Jenny Craig and exercise. However after the wedding I relaxed a little too much and I am back trying to get it off again. We can do this together!! The key is to never give up or slack off.

I lOVE the quote. "Be the kind of women that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "Oh Crap, She's up!" How inspirational! I'll be using that myself some. I stopped by SP because I was the only one home and had to tell someone all of you lucky BBQ) that I lost over 3lbs last week. Not a lot but such a nice start and surprise. I love it!! And the quote was just the icing on the cake for me. Thank you all. emoticon

Hey Ladies!

I have been gone for a while and gained a few pounds. But I am back, focused, and Motivated. I have some extra motivation because I am in People Magazines Wedding Weight Loss Challenge. I was in last week (Jan. 11th-18th) issue with 5 other brides. I look forward to connecting and getting fit with you all this year!

Check out the my People Magazine pic at my blog.

Hey Diva's!!!

Let me say, I missed SPARK SOOOOO MUCH!!! I am happy to be home.

Every day, they served sandwiches along with chips & cookies. So I would take 1 piece of bread away & eat fruit instead of the chips. I am happy I brought fruit with me b/c if not I would not have had any fruit this week. So as you can see I hate when I have to travel for work, b/c my food options were very limited but tried to make the most of it.


I am up 0.8 pounds but taking it stride. I am assuming my weight gain is from the breads b/c I tryto limit my bread intake to just 1-2 days a week. Next week I will be working towards getting that pound off plus an additional pound! I am happy that I worked out this week. I also know that the old Cassandra woul've eaten the chips & cookies and other desserts they had every single day & would've come back probably 3-4 pounds heavier!! So I am not upset or disappointed about the pound I gained!

I hope you Diva's had a wonderful week & can't wait to get back to my normal routines next week! My sinus pressure is horrible today & I have no energy, feel sooooo drained & trying to find a way to mustard up sooooo energy today to workout! Feels great to be home!


Have a good weekend Sexy Diva's!

Hey Beautiful Diva's!!!!

Just wanted to say emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon for all of the LOVE you Gorgeous Queens sent to my page & email!! I felt SOOOOOO LOVED & SPECIAL!!! I really needed that last night b/c last night was emotional for me but you Diva's lifted my spirits!!

Queens- Thank you sooooo much for reaching out to me last night & today! Thanks for all of the spark goodies plus the supportive, kind & thoughtful words, it brought tears to my eyes. No one knows how hard it's been for me to hold it together since my diagnosis. Yesterday was a hard day for me but all of the Queens reaching out to me brightened my day.

I didn't understand why all of these women were sending me "Congrats" but I saw the email last night from Pocahantaz, asking all the ladies to BLOW MY PAGE UP & they shut my page DOWN With Love!! LOL..


This is Our Year & Our Decade!!!

Here's a Toast to each of you for being Sexy, Beautiful & Sweet Queens!!! emoticon

Happy Hump-Day Lovely Diva's!!!

Well Diva's here we are at the last Wednesday of the Decade about to be headed into a new Decade, a New Year & a New Life!!! Well I am going into a new life! This has been an interesting decade & year for me. I had my 2nd son at the start of the decade & century in 2000 and had my first son at the end of an decade & century in 1999. During this time period of a new decade I have managed to gain & lose weight numerous times but this new decade & year is going to be better for me!!! I am not going to spend another decade losing weight but instead I will be losing this weight for once and all in 2010 & then the rest of the Decade I will be maintaining a healthy lifestyle!


This was a crazy year for me but thru it all I am still blessed & highly favored by the Lord! So I did not accomplish all that I would have liked but I will go into the New Year with less weight on me & with a New Mind Set!


***DIVA TIP OF DAY***

MY sister is a cancer survivor, my mother had it as well. God Bless you and God Thank you for you. Queen you radiate strength and power. It has a positive effect even when you don't see it.
I just realized how mean i spoke inwardly to myself. I read the blog this weekend about starting off with small achievements. I also read about being a morning exerciser. I crept up to over 310lb. i've never been so big in my life. but this morning I woke up one hour early to try to exercise using YOUTUBE.COM/SPARKPEOPLE 10 MINUTE KICK BOXING WORKOUT. while i laid in bed it was dark outside i argued with myself saying to myself things about getting out of bed or not. When i finally said to myself well eventually you will get up and exercise it's okay that's when my mind said "finally something you said kind to me" and i got up put my sneakers on and grabbed my laptop to the livingroom. i was amazed at myself. i realized doing the video and then after cooldown watching all of the SPARK YOUTUBE videos' what a great collection. that 10 minutes in the morning could easily be 10 in the evening also. when i got ready for work and showered which i hadn't done in over six months i realized how depressed i was, here i had been just washing up and throwing on deoterant although i was clean i had not submerged into water and gotten purged. that made a difference all morning i did things smarter used my time wiser. i had the salad done for lunch. i noticed the great job i did on my nails yesterday with the liquid resins and polish overlay. i felt clean and neat. Just changing my thinking - when i got to work even my co-worker noticed and complimented the broccoli and cauliflower i was eating he said his wife had a difficult time with "Baby weight" after their last son, how she changed her eating habits alone helped her lose 45lbs. BEING KIND INSIDE YOUR HEAD AND TALKING NICE TO YOURSELF IS SO IMPORTANT IT IS LIFE IT IS VITAL. THANKS GODDESSES THAT WAS THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS/KWAANZA GIFT OF ALL! emoticon

Hey Gorgeous Diva's!!!

Okay soooo this was a rough holiday for me, I'll be honest. I mean dealing with my mom's disease & then dealing with my cancer has been rough. I was very emotional last week & really sad my mom couldn't come down for the holidays. Despite me working out 6 days last week, I still did horribe with me eating the Wednesday-Sunday. It took Eric sitting down & talking with me & letting me know that he didn't want to see me throw all of my hard work out of the window. I am off for 2 weeks from work & I spent all of last week at home!!!


He told me that he didn't want to see me eat myself back to where I was at, he told me I made tooooo much progress to throw it out the window. He asked me to put myself first this week & go do something nice for myself this week. He told me it's time for me to put myself first. I can't change my Circumstances but I can change my THINKING!! So I told myself to just GET OVER IT & Move on!!! So each day this week I am doing something for me!!


Today I am going to go get a pedicure, tomorrow going to the salon, Wed. going to meet a friend for lunch & hopefully on Thurs. & Fri. I can spend time with friends! I need to not let weight hold me back from getting out & stop sitting in the house!! I have a lot of life to LIVE & that's what I am going to do, even if I have to do it by MYSELF!!! I am going to spend some quality time with MYSELF & stop letting weight or people hold me back from getting out & enjoying MY Life!!

Happy Monday to everyone also. Well Diva Cassandra. Your determination is admirable. With God on your side all things are possible. Continue with that strong will power. I find strength in seeing the fight in others. I think all of us have that fight within us but have to bring it to the surface.

Happy Monday Diva's!!

Well after a bit of an emotional day yesterday & being disappointed in not being accepted into Boot Camp 2. So I picked myself up & went to the gym, started back trying to conquer the Stair Master! Pushed out 30 minutes on there & went back today. I know what I need to do & that's exactly what I am going to do. I know what is needed to get this weight off & now I am continuing to put those steps in Motion & I ask you all to do the same! Don't let the Holidays be an excuse to eat haywire!


Knowing is not Enough, what I mean is you can't just keep saying "I know what I need to do" but you must Apply the Necessary Steps Needed to Succed at Weight Loss.

Hey Diva's!

Well I must be honest, yesterday was a day of emotions for me. I started off happy about my boot camp results then later in the day I just had an emotional break down. I went to the grocery store to clear my mind & then when I left, headed home I pulled into an empty parking lot & just began to cry. I mean I just sat there in complete silence crying. I asked God for Peace, to give me strength. I told him, sometimes I don't want to be strong. Why must I hold it all together? I mean I know I have to but sometimes I want to let my guard down.


After a good 10 minutes of crying, I returned home as if everything was okay but I did feel better after crying. So today is better but just wanted to write about it. I know that God will give me strength & that I can find Peace with him. He is strength & my armour in the time of battle. So I must not worry about what path he has laid out for me but I know I am equipped with what I need to fight this battle.

Wishing everyone a great Sunday!!

Happy Friday Fierce Diva’s!!!

Well let me start by saying that I went to the doctor yesterday & the results from the tests I did will be back in about 3 weeks, so I will keep you all posted.

Now I know you all have heard the saying “Time Changes Things” but you actually have to Change them yourself! You can’t expect Change to come about if YOU are not doing what needs to be done to bring about Change. So I guess what I am saying is- If you want to see the scale move, to be healthy & see Results, then YOU have to make the Necessary CHANGES to GET those RESULTS!!!! Change won’t just appear but it will appear when YOU put in the Work!

Happy Hump-Day Beautiful Diva’s!!!!

First I want to say emoticon emoticon emoticon for all of your kind, warm & thoughtful words in the time of my devastation. If you know me, then you know I am a FIGHTER & I won't give up without giving it my ALL!!! emoticon without you all I don't know if I could be this strong!! So you all will never know how much I love you guys!!

I hope you Diva’s are having a healthy & productive week!!!! I hope you are making the right decisions that you can be proud of at the end of the day & end of the week. Today I made the decision to wake up at 5:10 a.m. & go to the gym; completed 30 minutes of cardio on the stair master & going back this afternoon when I get off!! That’s what this journey is all about the DECISIONS we make. You have 2 decisions to make on this journey- 1. Will I Choose to Eat Healthy, Exercise Consistently, & Lose Weight? OR- 2. Will I Continue to Eat Foods that are Damaging to my Health, Give up on Consistent Exercise & Just Settle for where You are AT?

I select Option 1 & making the most of each day! This is not to say that I will never have a melt down & want that piece of cake or candy or chips but I will know how to manage my eating more efficiently! So start thinking about the decisions you are making on this journey! You don’t have to wait until the New Year is here to change your health, why not start Today?

Hey Lovely Diva’s!!!

Well today I have some bad news; well I guess news that is going to make me have to change my life for the better. I found out yesterday that I have cervical cancer and it’s still in the early stages. The doctor did say that I must lose weight & it will help shrink the tumors b/c the larger I grow, the tumors will grow also. She said nutrition & exercise could help me tremendously this is an option before surgery. I have a lot to think about here. When I found out, it shattered me & cried all afternoon. I then picked myself up & went to Boot Camp- I told myself “Sitting here Changes Nothing, Crying here Changes Nothing but Putting 1 foot in front of the other will Change Me!” So that’s exactly what I did.

There were so many emotions that I am filled with, like will be there to see my boys graduate from high school or college, see them get married & have kids. Then I said I have a great chance of survival & I just have to put the work in! There is no more turning to foods like cake, cookies, candy or chips; I can no longer play with my life & my health. There is no room here for the old Cassandra; from here on out there is only room for Progression not Regression!!

Now losing weight is no longer about just getting into a pair of size 10 pants but this is about saving my life. If I can control or help my tumors in my body thru nutrition & exercise then that’s exactly what I will do. I can fight this & I am going to fight this! I only have 1 Body & 1 Life and as long as I have breathe in my body I will fight for me!! Diva’s I hope that all of you are pushing yourself to maximum each day. Continue to eat healthy & get that body moving.

My attitude is going to determine everything!! Please pray for healing in my body!

Hey Diva's!!!

Well as most of you know I signed up for a Boot Camp- 6 week Transformation Program 6 weeks ago on November 9. Now the challenge is coming to an end this week but the instructor has now sent out another 6 week challenge where she is going to accept 2 people for free. Now I am asking for your prayers again that I am selected, it may be a long shot but I am just praying that I can be in the program again. I have given it my all these past 6 weeks & made it to every single workout!!! So calling all of you to send up your thoughts & prayers. She will select the 2 winners this Thursday, Dec. 17.

If I am not selected again, then I will take I won't see it as a failure but that someone else needed the spot more than me but that will not deter me from reaching my goal. I will still wake up 3 days a week in the morning to do strength training & the afternoons with cardio 5 days a week. This is a life journey for me.

Thanks Diva's for your support!!! I plan on continuing to make you guys proud of me!!

Happy Sunday Diva's!!!

Hope you have a great day!!! Really sit down & evaluate your nutrition & exercise goals for this week. How can you make this week better than last week? There is still plenty time left in this month to still get some weight off or lose some inches. So really think about what you need to do this week.

Just wrapped up an intense 30 minute power-sculpt workout! This is also my last week of BC but not my last week of training my body to lose weight. I can now take what I have learned at BC & apply it at home!


** My 5 Goals 4 Week**

1. No Bread, NO Soda
2. Wake up at 5:20 a.m. on Mon, Tues, Thurs & Friday for Cardio at home.
3. Attend BC on Mon, Tues, & Thurs. for strength training.
4. Have fruit & veggies at each meal.
5. Continue no late night snacks (keep house free of junk food)

**Diva Tip Of Day**

Hi Ladies, I have not visited the team in a while since joining. I am inspired about the letter to myself. I will do this as I know the only person keeping me back is me. It is time for that honest conversation and for me to take control of my life. This team is very inspiring and motivating. Thanks Divas!! emoticon

Happy Friday Fierce Diva’s!!!

Thanks Diva’s for all of your out pouring of support!!! So you know I got butt moving yesterday when I got home & went to Boot Camp- gave 110%!!! I even woke up this morning at 5:20 to do cardio!! There is NO stopping me now!

I realized that my progress will be slow & steady & I can’t compare MY progress to the NEXT Person’s progress! I realized that we are all different & our bodies will respond different. One woman told me last night at BC that she has only been working out twice a week (with no additional workouts) since we started & lost 8 pounds! At first I was upset but then I was like- NO you continue to do what you are doing Cassandra & the scale will budge, keep giving your all!!!

So the scale may not move right away but I know I am going to have my BREAKTHROUGH!!! So until then I am going to continue busting my butt each day! I ask each of you to continue to work your butt’s off also!!! NEVER Give UP, even when you don’t see Change right away- that means that Change is on its Way!!!

**DIVA TIP OF DAY**


“VAST changes may NOT happen Right away, but with Great Valiant EFFORT even the Difficult becomes EASY!”

Have Sexy, Healthy Weekend Diva’s!!!

Hey Diva's!!!

Well last night I got on the scale only to see that I am still in the 200's!!!! This was very discouraging b/c I have worked out for 3 days straight twice a day! I was hoping that when I weighed this Saturday the scale would say 199.8 at least, instead the scale is at 201.6!!! What a blow, I mean I have been busting my butt & watching my food intake-staying in my calorie range each day. So this morning I didn't even workout. I felt like, WHY- I don't see the progress and after almost 5 weeks in Boot Camp, I should be soooooo much further along.


Yeah, I know this is a mindset I must change. I won't see results over night but dang why can't I see any progress??? Then as I was on my way to work this morning I thought about my oldest son- Isaiah who was selected yesterday to be a Kids Health advocate at his school in a program called "Kidz Bite Back"! He and 1 other student were selected to represent the student body on discussing what changes they want to see in the nutrition plan (school lunches) as well as the exercises that they do!


This was such a great honor for my son to be selected for this out of hundreds of kids!!! I was amazed & asked him "Is this something you want to do?" and he replied "Yes b/c too many kids are overweight and the schools are not helping them with the greasy pizza and burgers- where is the healthy foods." That touched me! My youngest son John said "Yeah, I have to take napkins to press the grease out of the food b/c I don't want to be eating grease!" They said their friends ask them why they do that & they say "I want to be healthy and don't want to be overweight." This has shown me that even though I am not making the progress I would like to see but I have changed my boys outlook on how they eat & how they want to live a healthy life & what more could a mother ask for!!

So when I get home today, I will be doing my cardio session that I skipped this morning & going to boot camp tonight. Eric did tell me he could see my body changing but then again he is my man & is suppose to say that emoticon Sorry this is so long.

Happy Hump-Day Sexy Diva’s!!!!

I hope your week is progressing GREAT!!! Keep giving it your all Diva’s, we only get 1 body & 1 life! So you need to take this journey by the horns & ride it til you reach your Goal, til those pounds are all OFF!!!

I was soooo inspired by the biggest loser last night, to see how far all of the contestants had made it in 7 months (especially Shay, Abby & Rebecca!!) If those women could go from over 470 pounds to 300 pound & from being 270 pounds to 140 pounds then I too can reach my goal of 165 pounds and you too can reach your goal!!!

Hey Lovely Diva’s!!!!

Did you Diva’s write your “Dear Me” letters over the weekend? emoticon

So I got up as planned at 5:20 a.m. to knock out my Tae-bo. I am committed to these next 2 weeks of moving that scale & setting 2 week mini-goals for myself. This is also the last 2 weeks of my BC, so I really have to give it my all. If you have stumbled some, then get back up & get moving today. I hope your eating is going great & that your exercise is going good also.

The 3 keys to being successful in this weight loss journey are (M.I.D.) MOTIVATION, INSPIRATION, & DEDICATION!!!!!!! The 3 of these all come from within us. So Diva’s you have to find that drive that started you on this journey, that FIRE that sparked you to say “This is the day, I am going to change my life.” We can do this Diva’s!! Re-commit yourself & find your M.I.D.!!!!!

**DIVA Tip of DAY**

“The BEST Motivation always comes from WITHIN and NO one can Buy or Give you Motivation; so Dig DEEP & think of something that Inspires You!!! I ask you do you have your M.I.D in order to get that sexy Mid-Section you desire???”

Keep up the FABULOUS WORK DIVA’S!!!!

Coming up with my game plan for the last 2 weeks of my Boot Camp!!! Gotta get it together & kick my mission into High-Gear!!! So these next 2 weeks it's cardio at 5:15 a.m. on Mon, Tues, Thursday coupled with strength training in the afternoons on those days. Then Friday & Saturday will be cardio at the gym! Eating must stay within 1,200-1,300 calories.

I am going to give it my all these next 2 weeks. I have to really kick up a notch & get serious about living my life to the fullest. NO more excuses about why this scale is not moving & start moving my butt more & stop moving my mouth as much!!! So I am ready to do this & I hope you Diva's are ready to kick your plan up into high gear also!!!

Girl Cass, I am lovin' you right now. This is an awesome idea I must say. I never thought about writing a letter to myself and to top it all off, I can already think about areas of shortcomings in my weight loss plan and could definitely use some "gettin' real with myself" talk right about now.

Ooooh this is gonna be so fun. emoticon

Good Morning HOT Diva’s!!!

It's Time 2 Get REAL!!!

Diva’s it is time for us to start being honest with ourselves & truly reflect on why we have not been successful on this journey. If you have been struggling, really sit down & think about what has been causing you to struggle & how you can try to change it. If you have been doing great then keep up the great work & keep on pushing yourself. Diva’s a new year is headed in & I don’t want to go into 2010 with the same old me, the same old way of thinking. So tonight or tomorrow I will be sitting down to write myself a letter, yes a “Dear Me” letter. I have got to keep it real with myself & I am not waiting to be real with myself on Jan. 1, 2010 but right now in 2009!!


Okay I have a personal challenge, well it's not even an challenge but something I am doing and thought might be helpful to you lovely ladies also. This is something I would like each of you sometime this weekend or by next Monday. Okay I want each of you to take a piece of notebook paper or scratch paper. I want you to write a "Dear Me" Letter, yes that's right, write yourself a letter. So mine will start off- “Dear Cassandra,......etc...”

In this letter you can write how you feel about yourself, or what your thinking, or how you feel about your weight loss this far & where you want to be in 1 month (30 days- Jan 4.) from the day that you write the note, put the date on it & open it on 1 month from the date, you will seal the note up in an envelope. Now put your letter in your underwear dressers or socks drawer but somewhere that you know that you will see it & write the open date (big) on the outside of the envelope.


So if you want to be down one size or down 8 pounds, learn to control your sugar or carbs overload, or whatever your personal goal is to achieve in 1 month than write that but it can be a paragraph or even 3 pages or just 3 lines. No one will read this but you, BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE HONEST WITH YOURSELF, write down what you've been struggling with in your diet or exercise & how you can overcome your issue.


So have a FABULOUS Weekend & I will be asking all of you on Monday did you remember to write your self your letter??

ITA (I too agree) with Cheryl about you Cassandra. I love the words of motivation and inspiration you bring to the board. May the Lord bless you for it. I did not do too great today by the way. I just had a large plate of Chinese food. I had conch (a Bahamain seafood) in steamed broccoli nad carrots. The bad part was the rice - I ate a whole cup when I had said I was going to commit to half a cup or less per serving. Rice is my weakness and I am trying so hard to at least limit the amount I eat.

On the flip side though, I did 62 minutes of cardio this morning, burning a whopping 700+ calories in that time. I don't know if that offset it, but I sure hope so.

Happy Thursday Vibrant Diva's!!!

Well we are almost thru the first week of December. I know we are all motivated & pumped up; we need to carry that Motivation & Determination thru every day! Even if you have a bad day or a bad meal don't let it hinder your next meal instead get RE-FOCUSED & RE-CENTERED with your thoughts. That is what this weight loss journey is all about, it's a Learning curve EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Every day when you keep going, every time you get back on the wagon- you are learning & becoming a better you!!!

Diva's Keep up the FABULOUS work!!! Don’t give up on Yourself & your LIFE!!

Happy Hump-Day Vivacious Diva’s!!!! emoticon

LOOSE THOSE SHACKLES OF…..

That’s right Diva’s Loose those Shackles of Excuses, of Stress, & Putting YOURSELF Down. Loose those shackles of putting everyone else first & putting yourself on the Back Burner!!! Loose those Shackles of Not Feeling Worthy, of Not being Confident!!! Loose those Shackles of Extra Weight & FREE YOURSELF!!! Beautiful Diva’s you are worth being free of weight bondage, stress bondage, & not worthiness bondage! You just have to dig deep & spark that fire under your butt & get going!

You can no longer accept “Maybe” Or “Hopefully” I will get this weight off but NO we are instead declaring “When I Get There” & “I AM Going 2 Get There” and lose this weight! Speak it into Existence & put the plans in Motion to reach your goals. You ultimately have the Power Within YOU!!! I declare today am free from Bondage of Sugars, Overeating, Being Overweight, & Not putting myself first!!!

Happy December Diva's!!! emoticon

Beautiful Diva's we have 4 weeks left til 2010 rolls in & I don't know about you but I AM going into 2010 (Lord willing) a healthier, confident & a Diva weighing less!!! I am going to give it my all these next 4 weeks & plan to lose 6 pounds this month. I challenge each of you Diva's to really challenge yourself this last month of the year. Let's get rid of the excuses & reasons why but instead focus on HOW we can reach our goals!

There are going to be office parties & Christmas dinners but at some point you have to know When to Say When- Enough is Enough!!! You have to know when you are really going to make YOURSELF the 1st Priority!! Do you want to go into 2010 weighing more & setting your New Year's Resolution to lose more pounds b/c you put on extra weight in December? You need to take control over your life RIGHT NOW & NOT when Jan. 1, 2010 comes around. Do something NOW & make a change happen these next 4 weeks.

Happy Monday Vivacious Diva's!!!!


The holiday is over & I know that many of you may have ate too much of this or that but it's over now & there is NO ROOM FOR STAYING DOWN!!!

You have inspired me to go on; I started out doing atkins last month and lost 22lbs. in the 14 days they have you on the induction stage!That was really wonderful for me by me weighting over 300lbs. But I couldn't keep it up I wanted fruits but this diet didn't allow fruits.So I went back to the drawing board and started over.I been working out for the last week and a half. By reading your post it is possible without a doubt and I also have my sister and her best friend to push when I don't feel like it!!! Good luck on your journey and also keep the faith!
