Multivitamin, folic acid, fish oil, hair,nails, and skin vitamin, calcium magnesium citrate and others vitamins for my health.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

Multivitamin that has lots of vitamins and minerals in it, to make up for what I may lack in my daily nutritional intake such as enough iron.

I love this thread. I really love that quote about what you eat in private you wear in public. That is sooooooooo true!!!! I also love the goal about not drinking any soda. I forgot who wrote that but I'm wondering what is she doing to help her not drink the sodas. I have a sweet tooth and if I don't eat something sweet, I find myself getting a mountain dew just for that sweet taste.

I just join today and already I'm inspired. Loves it!

Alright My Queens....

Vitamin for the day -

Just because you ate ONE thing that was not a part of your diet plan does not mean you get a free pass to over indulge for the rest of the day. I just read something that I think will help you stay on track for this journey...she stated that if you get a speeding ticket do you go and break the law all day??? Which makes perfect sense...YOU learn from the mistake and move on. Trust me One cookie doesnt have as many calories as FIVE. Are you making the connection!!!

Happy July Beautiful Diva's!!! emoticon

Now is the time to realize your TRUE Potential, half the year is gone & we need to finish out the rest of 2010 REACHING Our Goals! If you only look at What Is Now, you might Never Attain What Could & Should be in YOUR Journey.

So if you keep telling yourself that all I see is a “FAT” person in the emoticon & never can see the “BEAUTIFUL” person in the mirror; how do you expect to reach YOUR Goal of a size 16 or size 6 if you CAN NOT take the Negative image away?

You must SEE & VISUALIZE the Person YOU Desire to Become!! Because this is just skin we are in & you have to SEE BEYOND the extra Skin, the Cellulite & see the TRUE YOU!!! Just because a house is not the best looking on the outside doesn’t mean the inside of the house is not beautifully designed!

**DIVA TIP OF DAY**

“Some Make It HAPPEN, Some Talk About Making It HAPPEN, Some Watch Others Make It Happen & Some Say~ How did this Happen To Me???” Now which ONE Will YOU be~ The 1 To Make It HAPPEN or the 1 still Talking About Making It HAPPEN???

emoticon Have a FABULOUS Day!!!

Happy Hump-Day Sexy Diva's!!!

I hope that everyone's week is going great!!! I was thinking about this weight loss journey & I was trying on clothes last & thinking that "Goodness if only I could lose 5 pounds I could button up these pants." It made me realize that me not being able to button my pants is MORE Motivation To Lose this Weight! Then I thought about what I heard someone say about someone else who was a smaller woman "She doesn't need to lose any weight she's already small, what she has 5-10 pounds to lose-that's nothing."

I thought to myself, we never know what brings people to where they are at in their journey, that woman could’ve been 250 pounds before or 170 pounds but it’s not up to us to judge when a person should STOP THEIR JOURNEY. I also thought to myself, what if I had said "Let me lose these 5 pounds" when I saw my scale go from my goal weight of 165 up to 170 pounds. However, I didn't because I thought it was no big deal, it’s only up 5 pounds. Now I know that once I get to my goal weight this time, I can no longer think I am immune from weight gain & go back to my old eating habits.

I now know that losing 5 pounds is just as hard as losing 50 pounds. I have to remain disciplined on this journey but not be super hard on myself either b/c I am only human. I know I will reach my goal weight before 2010 is over!

Happy Tuesday Vivacious Diva’s!!!

Today is filled with new opportunities & I am going to make the most of today! I woke up this morning & worked out on my abs for just 10 minutes. It may not have been a lot but it was a start & I could’ve just laid in the bed for 10 extra minutes, so tomorrow I will aim for 20 minutes of high intensity Abs or Cardio.

The fact is I am making better choices daily despite wanting to give up or complain about my recent weight gain, shows that I am making tremendous progress mentally & physically. I may have had a slight set back but I know there will be Greater Consequences to me deciding living a Poor, Unhealthy Life & I never want to face those consequences. So I instead I am making Small Changes Daily!!

Today someone brought in donuts emoticon (one of my favorites) but I was NOT tempted to eat one of them (even though I know they are delicious…LOL)! I made it through yesterday without all the things I said I wasn’t going to have- No Cookies, Chips, Cake, Cereal, & Candy (I just noticed all of the things I love start With a “C”) emoticon I am proud of myself for saying NO & sticking to my goals!

**DIVA TIP OF DAY**

I read three great quotes that I wanted to share with you...first ..."Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city." I think it is so important to network and communicaate and allow the person to know that you are on their mind. Life is too short and tomorrow is promised to no one. Second..."Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer." I like to know what is going on with the people I care about and if they are going through anything and if there is anything I can do to help..Everyone wants and needs to be loved..and treated like they matter. And finally "Good friends ARE good for your health!!!" Now this one hits home...because we are taking this journey together..it makes it all the more special for me. It is nice to have someone to talk to ...who may be feeling the same way that I do...just a chance to vent.

EVERYONE...has been so supportive of me during this journey..I appreciate you all.. It makes it so much easier for me to do the right thing and to continue. If you are down PLEASE don't hesitate to call on me...I will help whenever you need me...I may even call on you for some support...(smiles) Remember we are in this together... WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

“One person working toward a dream is worth 99 people just working.” Okay...EVERYDAY when I wake up it is a challenge to get out of the bed and do the workout...Now when I get done I am SOOOOO happy that I did it...but it is still a battle...So here is what I do to help me get through... You too can Make Your Dreams Come True !!!!!!!! 1st meditate on your daily goals every morning to give purpose to your day.....and every night before you go to sleep, think about your vision of the ulti­mate you ...you know the sleek, strong, sexy, healthy, and happy YOU...... If you just believe in yourself and your goals...you will find yourself taking the active steps needed to achieve them!!!! Now I am not saying everyday will be easy...but YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!..Hey It isnt easy for me!!! But all we can do is give it our best!!!

“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” The day never seems long enough to get in all the thing we think we need to. Sometimes it feels like if we could just stretch 2 more hours into it..everything would work out. Remember to find time for you..you can still get in small mini workouts...take the steps at work..practice your runway walk during comericials of your favorite show...do a few flights of stairs at home during a commercial..any and all movement helps to win the battle..We can and will do this together...need to vent email me..I am your girl..i got your back!!!

"Some people are carbon copies..others make their own impression.." Again I want to thank each and everyne of you for the impression that you have made on my life..and for being their for me so that we may be there for each other!!!

Well I got through my Cardio...with God on my side..it is so true if HE can take you to it...HE can get you through it!!! I was so not feeling that work out this morning..it was 4:30 in the morning my sons were snoring..LOL I was so wanting to get back in that bed. But I didnt..I stayed up did my 30 minutes of Cardio..thanked God for loving me and giving me strength..and I thank him for the words that He gives me to inspire you..I thank Him for the friendships that I have developed with you!!! I thank him for YOU!!!

If only you could take a glimpse into my mind for a second..you would see the love & respect that I have for you ..for making this commitment to better yourself...for putting aside all self doubt and sharing your personal stories with Me!!! It is such a struggle sometimes to constantly be watching what you eat and make the right choices..BUT..when you have a good circle of friends..the load seems a lot lighter...mind you..I LOVE my spark points..but the real reward is logging on..and seeing my new found friends, getting tips and advice...finding out about your day...and family...I appreciate you..and wanted you to know that...


When you have come to the end of all that you know...
And it is time to step into the darkness of the unknown...
Faith is knowing that you will be given something solid to stand on....

“Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another.”

Well you knew that was coming..didnt you!!!!

It is not going too be easy...

But it is going to be worth it...It is going to take change....with that kind of change, you might need a little extra support....that is what helped me get through...To help you keep your feet planted firmly on the path to successful weight loss and fitness, find someone to look up to ...... someone whom you trust to educate you about health and fitness, give you advice and answers when you're feeling lost, and stimulate your sense of possibility and potential....it has helped me more than you know....I am constantly reading and looking up new ways to keep it interesting for me!!!!

Hey...and you KNOW I am here for you...come to me WHENEVER..if i dont have the answer I will get it!!!!

Queen's...drink your water, Excercise...Love yourselves..and your families!!!

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.." Okay what does that mean to you...well for me...it means....I don't care if you were the fat kid in high school, or the black sheep of the family, or the lazy teenager who hated exercise.

Forget it....let it all go! We have too RELEASE THE PAST!!!!! Those old habits are not serving you in the present (are they??), and they certainly aren't going to help you achieve your goals for the future.

If you let go of old negative images of yourself, you can maintain an open mind and be open to all possibilities.

It is SOOOOO important that you let go of the past in order to re-create yourself in the present. Just like you have the ability to make yourself sick...YOU have the ability to make yourself fail or succeed!!!! YOU CAN DO THIS....when you get up in the morning are you thinking ..how tired you are feeling...or how good it is going to feel when you get done the workout...when doing your strength training focus on how good you are going to look rather than if you can make it through 10 more reps!!!! Mind over matter baby!!!! WE CAN DO THIS....and WILL!!!

"Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it and virtue is DOING it." Alright I am loving this one...Do you have what it takes to get back on track if you slip off...can you get back on the wagon and shake off any slip up's???? It happens ...your human... you miss a few workouts in a row due a late night at the office and suddenly your weight-loss efforts seemed derailed. It's tempting to mentally beat yourself up..... isn't it? Girlfriend....you just have to chill out...It isnt that bad..... Being hard on yourself is the old you, remember? We have a new lifestyle now....we have totally changed our way of thinking...RIGHT!!!!
Now, you know to take setbacks in stride and get right back on that wagon. You wouldn't think of wasting even a minute to beat up on yourself. After all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process and every process takes time. You will encounter small failures ....everybody does That is what makes us human! But also remember you learn from those mistakes too!!!! Remember, every pound you gain can be lost. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!
If you miss a workout, it's not the end of the world! Get to the gym the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals. Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over for the remainder of the day!!!! Are you with me?????

Remember..Drink Your water....EXCERCISE....LOVE YOURSELVES and your families..

"The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves. " This is pretty deep..I dont want more for myself than i would want for anyone else...I try to make it a practice that if I get somewhere (anywhere) I always reach back to bring someone along with me...It can be lonely at the top..there is plenty of room at the top of my throne...Smiles...That is why i send a daily message to my frinds...cause we are a team..when one succeed's we all do...we have to continue to be there and support one another...you know if you need me i am here..sometimes even when you don't...LOL... I always say that if i had someone to be there for me like this site has been when i had started other diets..i might have made it through...sometimes you just need that one word of encouragement o help you get through the day...I hope that I have given that to you...as you have given that to me...God is good...He has pulled us together..and it feels amazing...When it comes to out doing myself I know i am my own worst enemy...LOL..Oh..and for the record if anyone wanted the job..the position is not vacant...LOL!!! I like to challenge myself to do a little more each day..2 mins..some..five minutes others..but the best inspiration is knowing that i can do it... So Keep up the good work ladies...i am so proud of you and even prouder to have you in my circle of friends!!!

Today is my second day in the Two-sixty club. Once I get to the lower end of the 60's I will have reached my 10% goal of weightloss since December 2009. I am so excited that I cannot wait to hit the pavement and gym so that I can continue my journey. There is no going back this time and I am so grateful to my BBQ's & SP Friends.emoticonemoticon

Having those things that we enjoy eating that will not help us lose the weight.

It can be hard, but I truly believe it can be only if we let it. There are some things we need to give up (otherwise we wouldn't be where we are). Willpower is a tough thing to hold onto. But if we cut out the excuses and stay FOCUSED on our goals, we can hold onto that will. Set your mind daily to accomplish your task. Take it one day at a time. And take it from me, YOU CAN DO IT. Don't focus on how much you have to lose in all or how many hours of working out it will take to accomplish this. JUST FOCUS ON THIS DAY. I found that if I set mini goals it isn't so overwhelming. You will get there but there are some things you may only have once a week instead of everyday and later once a month and not every week. But you can still have it. And soon you may not want it. Believe me I have COKE A COLA clothing cups etc, I loved Coke just this much, but guess what I can pass it by today without a second thought. (other things are on their way out) Bless your name LORD
I don't want to diet I want to change the way I think about food, cook food and eat food. Only then will I lose this weight and KEEP IT OFF. And Oh yea exercise plays a major part in this goal.
Blessings to you all on your journey

This seems to be one of my biggest issues with sticking to a diet or eating plan is wondering if I will be able to have some of the things I enjoy eating. I don't eat a lot but I am still a bigger lady and a lot of times I think it is because I do not eat enough so my body thinks I am starving myself and holds on to every little bit of fat it can. But that is what makes me want to quit a lot of times is just feeling like I am not in control of what I can and cannot eat. I guess you could say I want to control everything about me and my body so I do not always make the right choices but I am working on getting in three healthy meals a day and two healthy snacks. I am not doing so well right now but I am really working on it. I totally failed yesterday but today is a new day and I am new to this so I know that the battle has just begun I just need to choose my weapons. Thanks for the motivation and the inspiration!

I really need that today. Because I have been struggling for the past 5-6 months on why I can't buckle down and do this. I know what to do but its a mind thing. And for some reason I think about losing weight and what I am going to eat all day but when I get home its like I eat everything in sight. Thank you! I can do this and I will do this. Its hard because I really wanna be healthy. And do that I have to lose the weight. Thanks again!!

My quote for the day:

"There aint much fun in medicine, but there is a heck of a lot of medicine in FUN!" LOL...Are you having fun with your workouts..and your new lifestyle change...are you adjusting to the new change and discovering that some of the healthier choices aren't so bad after all....come on now..admit it...now the one thing I can admit is it sure does cost a lot more...LOL..

But remember we have to stay in the right frame of mind to get this done...If you think it's all about diet and exercise, you're wrong. It sounds crazy, I know. Exercise and a proper diet is very important to any weight-loss and fitness program..there is no doubting that. But, to reach any long term goal, especially one that requires major lifestyle change successfully, you'll need to improve your attitude right along with it. You can have all the external support in the world, but if your self esteem is in the toilet, you'll never have long-term success. You have to know and believe that you are worth it and deserve the happiness you desire!!!! Speak it into existance...WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!! and will!!!!!


When you have come to the end of all that you know...
And it is time to step into the darkness of the unknown...
Faith is knowing that you will be given something solid to stand on....

"The future comes one day at a time." So does progress...if you mess up one day..get back on track the next and keep fighting to stay ahead of the game....remember...WE CAN DO THIS!!!! We have to stick together thru the good and the bad...Just don't give up!!! This will be our year..We just have to claim it and speak it into existance...I am not giving up on any of you...period!!!!

“Wise is he who collects the wisdom of others.” We learn from each other's success and mistakes..it helps us to grow..I learn something new everyday...and feel i am a better person for that..and what you have given me...

Again..if you feel like your falling...let me know..i am here for you...You just have to let me be!!!

“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.” Okay maybe I was feeling this one because I am being tortured with a snow storm today. But when I think of a snowflake and how each one is different it makes me think of the Queens and how truly blessed I am to know each and every one of you. You each bring you own flavor and spice to this team. Over the past few years I have been the leader of this team it never ceases to amaze me how truly wonderful you each are. You have been there to support one another, encourage, laugh and cry together. Coming from a person that has only brothers I feel so blessed that God has given me 60,000 + sisters!!!! Isn’t it amazing how God gives you exactly what you need when you need it the most. And hey…if it’s a dream…I hope I never wake up!!!! Keep up the good work Queens. I love you!!!

"To Keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.." It is very important to fuel the body so that it wont go into starvation mode and hold on to those pesky fat cells...the key to success is "What" you choose to eat...if you are getting in your three meals and two snacks..if not two snacks at least one..drinking your water and not eating two hours before bed you are on the right track!!!

Another thought i would like to share (Cause you know I can go on forever..LOL) I want to talk about the hunger scale..when you decide to eat......I was reading about how to determine how hungry are you...which was interesting..now me I always make sure i start out with three good sips of water...but it takes 20 minutes for your body to register it is being fed..I take my time with my meals..I leave the table satisfied but never full..if that makes since..i encourage you to start your meals (Lunch and dinner) with a side salad..very good for you.. or sometimes I start with a soup...Piping hot..cause you have to blow it to eat it..it takes a little longer..... I can elaborate if you like..but it is just something to think about..that may be helpful..
Well Queen's...Drink your water...EXCERCISE....LOVE YOURSELVES

A lot of you are asking about my diet...NO...I am not ready to post my excercise and food intake on my page as of yet. (I have to take babysteps with this).....LOL..i will however share this...what I feel are the key to my success thus far...

Plan ahead...as far as my meals are concerned I know what I am eating for the day, two days in advance.

Take all my meals to work...breakfast and lunch.

I have mostly veggies for lunch...

I rarely eat out..and when I do i ask for a doggie bag right away and pack up half the meal.

As a rule I keep 7 bags of my favorite vegetable in my freezer..i really dont eat canned vegetables....

Eat more grains .

Fill up on fruits and veggies

Choose white meats instead of red

Switch to fat-free products — nonfat cheese, milk, sour cream, yogurt, etc.

AND the biggie....cut out eating 2 hours before bed.

But I imagime as long as you're consuming the right amount of calories and working out, and you don't feel sluggish from too much fat intake, you're on the right track!!!!

Trust me I am flattered that you want to know what I am eating...smiles..i will however make a deal...let me get to 260 and i will post it....LOL....

"We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers. " I try to make it a practice to always reach back and help someone everyday...some benefit more than others from my daily messages..but I feel that if I have touched one person..than I have done my job for that day.

If you ever...EVER feel like you have fallen just look straight ahead..you'll see my hand there waiting to help you up!!! I am so greatful for this circle of friends that I have developed..when it all comes down to it we are all the same...the same women that dont like our hair on certain days..dont like our body or sometimes struggle with esteem issues...the beauty is that we now have each other to share with..laugh with and cry with...I asked a friend if i could share with you this message..and i am not using her name..but it is a thought on how she was feeling.. She was struggling and new to the group..and wanting to quit..I said..
"Everything is going to be okay! You did the right thing by joining us. You CAN do this. Yes, it is hard, but you have to hang in there. It's okay if you can't do all the reps yet. Just do what you can. I have about 100+ pounds to lose and you know what??? I didn't gain this weight overnight, so it's going to take some time and sweat to take it off. Personally, I'm taking it nice and slow and one day at a time...that is all I can do." She is still plugging away and has lost 10 lbs....Girl..You know who you are...and I LOVE YA!!! Thanks for letting me share!!! So hang in there Queen's Victory will be ours.

"Be as you wish to seem!!!" I know your a Queen...so work it like the QUEEN that you are!!!

Okay a few people keep asking the key to success…I really don’t know..... I have a few guidelines that I follow and they are:

• Track your calories

• Plan your meals in advance (this is a huge one for me)

• Exercise at least 30 minutes a day

• Stop eating 2 hours before bed!!!!

• No white bread!!!!!

• No regular Pasta only wheat!!

• No alcohol.

That is basically it!!! I haven’t been doing anything else that is that special…I make sure that I am very strict with those few things. It has worked for me thus far..Just a thought…

Okay…My quotes for the day;

“If you let your head get too big, it’ll break your neck.” For me I am more concerned with how you are doing and how I can help…Yes I love the compliments…but I want this for ALL of us…so I am not concerned to much with the numbers on the scale…or I have learned not to be!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

I was having a conversation with a co-worker who told me I was looking good and she then went on to say "she doesnt know how I do it....she cant restrict herself like that..." I don't feel like I am restricting myself...I am just revamping the way that I think and eat...I am revamping the way I take care of myself as far as excercise is concerned...I want to be healthy and I want to be around for my children...I don't want to be out of breath after taking a few flights of stairs...or running to get a ball while I am playing with my son's....I also...NEVER want my children to be ashamed of me...or to have to deal with if any of there little friends say...Your mom is fat...It is a weird thing I know...But it is my thought...My children are in school and I would never ever want them to have to go through that..Kid's can be brutially honest sometimes.....I overheard a child talking about a female in Wal-mart once and referred to her as Huge..and was giggling with her sister...I felt bad for the female because I know she heard them..I would never want my children to go through that...even though i know my children love me unconditionally and I know they would never say anything like that about anyone (and live...LOL) But I knew I had to take pride in myself...which is why I want this so bad...I decided that this would be my year..to make it happen.....2010 I will be a TEN...a dime piece...LOL....I am so committed. It isnt always easy...NOT AT ALL... But I take it one day at a time...I dont beat myself up for setbacks...i learn from them and move on...period..
A temptation is a lot less powerful if it isn't totally forbidden. This is where moderation comes in to play.
There is room for all foods, no matter how "bad" they are; it's just a matter of being conscious and careful of how often and how much. It's fine to have a piece of cake now and then, just not every day, and not the whole cake. Once you train your mind and body as to the can's and the cannot's it gets a lot easier... WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!!

There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself". This is so very true..we go through this everyday..it is a constant battle..to stay focused and on track that is why I strongly suggest that you set up mini rewards for yourself...it always is nice to get a little something for a job well done..and it will help you remain focused...another good friend mentioned that she is going on a anniversary dinner with her man in March and she is looking forward to buying a new dress (Red...DIVALICIOUS!!!! Kia winks!!!)..It is all apart of the road to success..looking forward and not looking back..this battle seems so much easier for me because I know I have warriors with me..right by my side to help me along the way when things get tough..Now for me..I personally have made a commitment to God..to take care of the temple He has blessed me with..that helps keep me focused...I don't want to let Him down either...and it works for me..cause Lord knows I do enough other silly things throughout the course of the day..I dont need to add this too...smiles.. It takes a good 45 days to develop a habit ..and that is what we are trying to do..develop a habit to continue on the right path of our healthy lifestyle change..Why has God blessed us with each other..I am not sure..I am just so grateful that He has..I know I would have quit a long time ago had I not found this site...I am still waiting for this litte pop-up to come and say now that we got you liking it..that will be $79.95 for the next three months...LOL!!!

Have a good day Queens..drink your water..

This morning went well..I got in my cardio.. it was a struggle..but i got it done..I did 20 minutes of extra cardio last night..and will again tonite...depending on what time my company leaves...what is weighing on my mind today..is..a few have mentioned that they feel like they are slipping...and when i read the comments and see what has actually happened the truth is your not slipping at all...yeah maybe you can't get in the cardio you wanted to or all the water you needed to for the day...the fact that you are even mentioning it means that you are in the "zone"..You are well on your way....I mean i wouldnt be able to tell if you did it or not unless you tell me...so the fact that you mention it and then come up with a solution to deal with it...Hey...you are in the ZONE baby!!!!! Keep up the good work..just remember we are all "beautifully human" No one is perfect...how we deal with things is what will make or break us!!!

My quote for the day...

"The future comes one day at a time." So does progress...if you mess up one day..get back on track the next and keep fighting to stay ahead of the game....remember...WE CAN DO THIS!!!! We have to stick together thru the good and the bad...Just don't give up!!! This will be our year..We just have to claim it and speak it into existance...I am not giving up on any of you...period!!!!

“Wise is he who collects the wisdom of others.” We learn from each other's success and mistakes..it helps us to grow..I learn something new everyday...and feel i am a better person for that..and what you have given me...

Again..if you feel like your falling...let me know..i am here for you...You just have to let me be!!!

Queens...Drink your water...EXCERCISE...and love those families!!!

Much love and continued success.

“It’s hard to beat a person that never gives up.” Sometimes it is so easy to be discouraged and want to throw in the towel..been there done that...I mean the scale isnt moving....your tired...any number of things..But let me reassure you that if you hang in there and get through the rough times...when you get to the maintainace stage of your lifestyle change it will become second nature..You will already have all the tools you need to keep it off forever...so if you feel like you are at the end of your rope ...tie a knot in it and hang on a little longer!!!I was reading up on Plataeu's with weight loss and read thateveryone goes through them and the direct quote from the article is "Every dieter encounters a plateau at some point in the weight-loss journey, and sometimes the best policy is just to wait it out. Stick with your eating and exercise routines for a few weeks and your weight will most likely continue its downward swing" It also went on to mention to be sure to get in your breakfast..and make sure you have one or two snacks during the day... The HUGE thing for me was cutting off my eating time two hours before bed!!!! Can you believe that I really stop eating at 6:30 pm..as a rule...Not a crumb after that time..LOL..hopefully this insight will help..

I also wanted to share another member's thoughts on the definition of DIVA.

D - Dynamic
I - Inspiring
V - Vibrant
A - Appealing

Can I get an AMEN!!!! (thanks Chelle) Remember ladies ALL things are possible with God who strengthens us..WE CAN DO THIS!!! We just have to believe we can..and get out there and do it!!!

Queens as always you have my love...Drink your water..Excercise...LOVE YOURSELF...Love your families!!!

Much Love and continued success!!!

Okay I havent got a quote for the day..yet...but i do have a thought to share...there are a few that arent seeing the results that they wish to see as quickly as they would have them come...again I must stress it is not going to be easy and each day will be a struggle.... But look at it this way: It takes SO much more energy to be overweight. Think about the energy it takes to carry around 20,30, 40 or even 70 extra pounds!

Now take that energy and do something constructive with it. When you finally finish a workout, you will feel so good to know you've accomplished something so difficult.

And, of course, the more you do, the easier it'll get. We just have to hang in there. Please don't give up!!!!!!

I promise you ...you will feel better in the long run..and look better too!!!smiles..YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!

My quotes for the day;

"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us everyday. " This had a special meaning for me..I have rec'd some of the best advice from my friends here..I have had some of the best laughs here as well....a few Queen's and myself were discussing "Saboteurs" and some of the stories would make your sides hurt you would laugh so hard...these women were so honest..and added a lot of their own humor to it..it is a constant reminder that we have to take things one day at a time...You know you have come a long way when you have the ability to laugh at yourself...

" Life is short,
Break the rules,
Forgive quickly,
Kiss slowly,
Love truly,
Laugh uncontrollably,
And never regret anything that made you smile."

Now this is my motto for 2010. I am breaking the rules as far as my lifestyle change....breaking the rules I had set for myself and remembering to put in some "ME TIME" I always was so worried about doing for others I forgot to take care of me!!! But I am getting it together..and again don't forget to kiss yourself in the mirror everyday..I make sure that I tell myself everyday that I am worth this and deserve to be happy...I want you to do the same..I know for sure my world is a better place for having you in it!!!

Finally I gotta quote Mary J. Blige "Just take me...as I am...OR HAVE NOTHING AT ALL!!!!"

You gotta love me or leave me alone....LOL!!! Walk with your heads high Queen's...Cause YOU got it going on...You have made a commitment to a lifestyle change and are following through with it..Hey everyday isnt perfect..but you get back on track when it isnt...RIGHT!!!

Gotta go..
Much love and success,

Today I dont really have a quote- But a thought....about staying motivated...

I know it's hard to stay on top of your workouts AND your eating every day, the water, and believe me, I know that no one's perfect (including me!). We all fall off the diet and fitness wagon — the important thing is how quickly we recover.
I have made a choice to fully commit to this lifestyle change...I can no longer wallow in self pity for what I should have done or could have done..I just need to "Put on my big girl panties and deal with it !!!" (I say that to a co-worker when she whines...LOL) So I am going to make better food choices and excercise on a regular basis..and turn this thing around..
I'm excited about this journey and know that I will reach all my goals, with the support of all of you behind me.

So, for the rest of you out there, let's make a commitment to ourselves and each other to do this thing right.

"Life is like an onion, you have to peel it one layer at a time, and sometimes you cry".

For me it is a reminder that we need to take things one day at a time..it may be good one day and the next day make you want to cry...but life is to short not to seize every moment and enjoy the time we have been blessed with!!!

I am going to make it through this....we are going to win this battle!!!

Have a great weekend and enjoy your families..and DRINK YOUR WATER!!!

Yes, drinking the water do speed the weight loss and staying on track. We all can do it. Sometimes you feel tired and don't want to do a thing, but just try for 10 minutes and you will end up doing 30 minutes this happens to me and then I feel great afterward.

We are doing this for ourselves.

I want to be that DIVA I was in my younger days. We all can do that but we are wiser now.

Let's get this weight off together.emoticonemoticon

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

My quotes for the day are:

"Peace is a journey not a destination."

"Discover the magic within yourself"

What this means to me ..I have managed to find the wonderful in today...I am trying to enjoy EACH day to the fullest..to take care of ME..be the best ME that I can be..and make a difference to at least one person..the world surprises me everyday..sometimes i surprise myself with the things God places in my mind...LOL

Well like Dorothy said.."I am off to see the wizard!!!..following my own yellow brick road to a healthier lifestyle!!!" Dorothy didnt do it by herself though she took along a few friends..that she just met..so today I THANK YOU for being that friend and taking the journey with me!!

Ladies..Let your dreams guide your steps..I think you'll like where you end up!!!

Much Love,

You know i almost forgot.."Drink your water..I am going to practice what I preach!!"

"Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate.” If you cant love yourself ...how can anyone else REALLY love you the way you deserve to be loved...i had to learn to kiss myself in the mirror and I honestly do say to myself every morning that I love me and that I am worth the change that I desire..because for a long time I didnt think that I was..This is not an easy thing to do...at first you may seem silly doing it...but soon you will see the change in your reflection Queen's and the world will see your GLOW...trust me...I was at the supermarket not a drop of make-up hair in a scarf and some sunglasses (Hurtin..okay lol) i ran into a friend and her daughter...and they couldnt stop saying how great i looked..now i am like (Oh...please)...but then this man walks by and says...i see what they see too...okay make me blush...lol. But it is because I have learned to love ME...and accept ME...I dont get it right everyday..but at least i get it sometimes...Love yourselves Queens...and know i love you too!!!

“Never look down on anybody unless you are helping him up.” We ALL struggle with this battle everyday…again if you tell me that you ate a piece of cake or whatever…it really doesn’t matter as long as you get right back on track..I am more concerned with if you will abandon the lifestyle change all together than one little mis-hap. So keep doing what you do!!!! You can’t beat yourselves up for every little thing or worry what others may think…when you tell me the things that went wrong on a previous day..it let’s me know that you have come a LONG way…because it isn’t like I was there watching you…Your in the Zone!!!!(smiles)

Well I have talked enough..Hopefully it has offered some insite…

Queens…drink your water..LOVE YOURSELVES..and your families..and of course Exercise!!!!

strong words, good words, but some give too much of ourselves to others ,then when it comes to us the tank is empty

being a momma, sometimes we give too much of ourselves that when it comes to us. empty tank, too exhausted to think , to empty to think.... and then before you know it, end of the day and nothing has been done for yourself... and the pillow has gotten to be the best friend... but I love your words...

My quote for the day;

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can fly only by embracing each other.” My thoughts are...people just don't believe in themselves as much as they should. Most people look for someone else to believe in them first, before they take action to achieve their goals. I’ve found that it works the other way around....well at least for me!! Once you take action, you’re suddenly surrounded by people who support and believe in you.
I think it's very important to keep an open mind about weight loss and to try different things until you find something that works for YOU. For me, that meant finding something I could sustain for the rest of my life.

Well I could go on forever if you let me...LOL. Hopefully this has offered a little insite. smiles...Remember if you need me I am just an email away!!!!! smiles!!!

there are some rewards that can work that are not food, one way that I reward myself is that I buy a t shirt that is one size smaller or some piece of clothing that is one size smaller,
you keep on going and try it on, eventually this will fit you and the reward is self gratification, that I did it, just looking at you in the mirror is the reward, can you imagine, going from a 18 to 16 that is ten pounds a size is ten pounds


worth a shot, I am trying it right now, it is tight very tight, but I can keep on going to get it to fit.....emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon

Hey there Queens!!!!!!

Well we are almost through week 4 of our Go Hard Challenge....How are we feeling...are we still motivated and still on the same track? It is my hope that no one is feeling overwhelmed!!! I know it is a very difficult battle....trust me I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU!!!! There are so many temptations that you face each day...but the key for me is staying focused and remembering my reward and what it will be...sometimes that doesnt even make it better to be honest..LOL. But then I remember how far I have come....and it get's me right back on track...I mean once weighing 346 lbs...i was getting it in there...smiles...I know I have come a long way because there was a time I wouldnt even share that information...with anyone!!!

A few things that have been instrumental for me...I set mini goals...I am always setting small goals and rewarding myself for them...awhile back I had a thread that asked if you were rewarding yourselves...personally...i feel if you can turn away temptation..or get through the whole workout routine that you normally wouldnt have...that is something to celebrate...NOT WITH FOOD...but you should pamper yourselves!!! So what is your plan....
Without a plan, reaching long-term goals may seem overwhelming or too distant. Setting smaller short-term goals has helped me stay on track. I would like for you to try this right now — identify and write down small goals to achieve on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis that will help you meet your long- term goal. Examples include preparing healthy snacks to take to work each day, working out three times a week, or just packing your lunch.

While setting and reaching a goal in itself is rewarding, sometimes a little external motivation is needed to reassure you that you are worth it and doing a good job. So, as you write down short-term goals think of incentives to keep you going and list them right next to each goal. Let me know your thoughts!!!!

Well the job has me jumping!!! I will be in touch a little later...

Remember ladies...drink your water...EXCERCISE...reward yourselves...LOVE YOURSELVES..and your families...

Much love,
Kia emoticon

As i pushed myself to complete my exercise yesterday, i kept thinking about how good i felt after completing my routine days before. This is what got me through it. I agree, it's not easy but it is so worth it!

I didn't select a quote for the day today...but i did feel inspired to continue to reassure you that you are on the right path and that.....

You're Worth It! You just have to believe it and you WILL achieve it!!!!
Change is painful and often requires some struggling, but remember, it's SO worth it. Every time you grunt it out and push yourself physically, you will grow even stronger and more confident in your abilities. And you might as well face it now: I'm never going to let it get easier, because I'm always going to be pushing you to make you realize that you too can take it to the next level, no matter what that might be. But rest assured.....aren't you getting stronger, healthier, and happier !!!!! And it reallly... if you think about, it didnt take that much time...these weeks have been flying by...havent they....and the connection that I have with a lot of you i feel like i have known you a lifetime!!!!

Queen's I am not even going to lie....Some days are hard — all that weighing, counting, and sweating — but I have to say, it all feels worth it!!!! At least to me it does....talking to you and helping you to stay motivated...it is DEFINITELY worth it...well that was on my mind...it is what I wanted to share. Much love...

Okay I up'ed my cardio...I am doing 60 minutes a day....and I am feeling it...whew...I had my normal breakfast. They are working a sista hard today...so I will be brief...

I just had a few thoughts to run past you...I was thinking about the changes that have to be made to be successful at this journey and how i sometimes struggle...
But then I realized...old habits die hard, but the good news is that they do die. Don't lose hope or beat yourself up over it if you're having trouble breaking bad habits. It's not that easy to change your ways — you just have to keep plugging away. Everyday i have to defeat some old habit trying to resurface...LOL...
I started by replacing old habits with new ones. Learn how to deal with sabotaging emotions by establishing some healthy patterns.

If you judge yourself every time you're in front of a mirror, try turning the focus on the things you love about yourself. When was the last time you looked in the mirror and told yourself how gorgeous you look? Instead of making a mental list of everything you hate about your body, name off five features you really love. You'll be surprised how much good that alone can do.

If you're constantly looking to the media for celebrity fitness trends, try finding more realistic role models — real people who've lost weight or achieved other goals similar to yours. They will be the most inspiring. Start paying attention to people you know. rust me I use quite a few of my friends as role models...smiles...

Don't wait until you reach your ultimate goal to pat yourself on the back — BE PROUD NOW!!!! Hey the fact that we joined SP...... is something to be proud of. And every achievement along the way should be rewarded. You deserve it!

Team,
Sometimes this seems s-o-o- lonely! but when I come here the load gets a little lighter! I know I got all of you pulling with me and we're make progress one day and one pound at a time! For this blessing I'm truly grateful! for years and years I would try to lose wt, couldn't do it!! No support [ the most important factor] Found the internet and support I need and I'm going to finish what I started!!
Thank-You!

When you want something you never had....You must do what you've never done!

What will it be today?? The joy of Discipline.......or the pain of Regret???

This is a brief one...but a good one!!!

This will eventually become a habit for you...You will know exactly how many calories are in certain foods etc.

Just remind yourself when you are going to cheat...that the item you are considering eating isnt going to taste as good as reaching your goal will feel!!!

My quote for the day;

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.” Just know I am here for you...if your down...need a friend...whatever...Let me motivate you to keep on keeping on!!!! WE CAN AND WILL DO THIS!!!!

"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us everyday." Know that I want to help..your struggle is mine...while i may keep my game face on...i too struggle...I help because i want to ..not because i expect something in return..when i ask how is your day..i really want to know...otherwise i wouldnt have asked...everyone wants and needs to be loved and feel like they matter...it is a good feeling when you know that someone cares about your well being..and how you are...sometimes you may need to just vent or a little advice...i have had that connection with quite a few of you..for that i am truely grateful..and know the blessing that it is...God placed us in each others lives for a reason...this has TRUELY been the best year so far for me.....and if it is a dream..I hope i never wake up!!!

Much love Queens!!!!

I am going to jump right into my quotes today;

"Sometimes you have to go a long distance out of the way, in order to come back a short distance correctly!!" This was give to me by my good friend (2BThin4Me). First off you have to love her for her name alone...that is what I am talking about ....love yourself girl !!!

It had extra meaning for me (The quote) because while the journey seems hard now I realize that once i get where I need to be the maintainance will be a whole lot easier..anything worth having is worth fighting for.

The support I have gotten from my BBQ's has empowered me to KNOW that I can do this..I am not alone..I have rec'd so much love..Like Luther Vandross says, "It's so amazing to be loved!!!" OKAY!!

"Set yourself up for success and anything is possible!!" I believe that if we set our goal to be a reasonable one and give it our best victory will be ours!! I say "Our" Because we are in this together..I am here for you weather you want me to be or not...hehehe..smiles..

"We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit!!" Now I KNOW I am a DIVA !!! LOL I am hoping and praying that God will continue to help me to be the best I can be and to continue to workout. I desire to be physically fit and am giving it my all..it is becoming second nature..I know that this is a commitment that I will have to do some form of excercise the rest of my life to maintain..But I also know and accept that I am worth it..I deserve to walk with my head high..and not feel uncomfortable about what i am wearing..so tired of smiling and laughing on the outside and crying on the inside...remember self acceptance comes from the inside first..YOU have to love YOU first!!!

I saw confirmation of what I was saying about working out early in the am...it says you could boost your metabolism for up to 24 hours...now that is amazing in itself!!!

Well..I have talked enough..you know I could go on forever!!!

Promise me to be healthy..think healthy thoughts ..eat healthy foods..get in some form of excercise..befroe going to bed look in the mirror and say "I love you and you are beautiful..and I deserve to be happy!!!" Let's do the DANG THANG!!!

When you have come to the end of all that you know...
And it is time to step into the darkness of the unknown...
Faith is knowing that you will be given something solid to stand on....
Or taught to FLY !!!!!
