Hello Team, I just finished my first online class at DeVry University and I completed it 2 weeks early with an "A"! emoticon . I am so happy with myself!

My Motto: Anything that the mind can CONCEIVE can be ACHIEVED!

Congratulations to all the Queens, I just graduated with my BS in Health and Human Performance on August 8th. I have been gone and unfortunately gained some weight back but I am back to stay!

There is nothing lacking in Christ.

I did it! I graduated with my Masters Degree Saturday! Whewww! 2 degress in six years and I do not want to think about how much weight I have gained. Time to get it crackin' I need my sleep, water, and reformed diet plan! Hope everyone is starting to feel the relief of another semester complete. Time to cool the brain down and enjoy a little break before summer school starts. Have a good week and Happy belated Mother's Day whether you were being honored, honoring your mama' or both.

Hugs and keep keepin' on!

Guess what as of 8am this morning I am exactly seven months from realizing my life long dream - my
Masters Degree. My sweet little girls is counting down, she has been doing school with me since I started undergrad in 2002 in class every night. I think this time across the stage I should be allow to bring her... we both worked for this degree.

Got to step up the pace on the exercise

So I was asked if I have allowed myself a "cheat day" It works for a lot of people to have a day to be able to enjoy. I think my down fall this past weekend may have been the food I chose for my cheat day. I figured out my trigger binge foods and I have finally come to grips with the fact that the food does not taste as good as skinny feels.

I am going to try to allow myself a treat. Rather than look at it like I am cheating (which has ethical ramifications for me...) I will look at it as a treat. But instead of the high carb treat (pasta, rice etc) I might try a carmel apple when I go to the pumpkin patch with my daughter.... Okay, here's wishing you, me, we, us luck.

Some may think it getting off track to have a treat. I however think of it as finding a realistic, I am strving for a healthy relationship with food. Because if this is a lifestyle change I guess I should figure out what I can eat as a treat and be done with it. Rather, than let it turn into a three day excursion... Another thing I think I need to track is my TOM. As a single individual my TOM has not been as much of an issue/concern or so I thought. Maybe seeing how my body rythm affects my appetite maybe something to consider...

So, what is my accomplishment? I say it is becoming a mindful participant on this SP journety as I strive to be a HOT MAMA for graduation, and there after!

ADF227 you are doing it are you doing your dissertation now? That's awesome smart and beautiful black queens we are!

I just wanted to share that this is my fourth week of loss, this week 1.8, YEAH BABY! 10/3 will be my first official month with SP and I would like to see one more pound off to make an even 8 for the month...

I have been reading the posts and I am always inspired to stay focused and remember this not a race or a diet. I am changing the choices I make
about how I treat the body that houses my wonderful little soul (lol)!

I watch my calories quantity and quality closly since I have not been getting the kind of exercise that I would like. But, I tell you what... I should have the strongest little fingers and wrist you ever
did see with the papers I have been writing.

"If there is no struggle there is no progress..." Fredrick Douglas


Have a great weekend everybody, be kind to yourself!

I am currently doing clinical in a neonate intensive care unit. I love it. Every morning when I leave there I know I just prevented at least two families from losing a child. Some nights aren't so good and God takes his babies home to heaven, but those nights that he gives me the knowledge on how to keep a baby a live , I'm thankful. Once I graduate I will be proud to say, I am a NICU nurse.

I've been on the Dean's list twice and was inducted into Kappa Delta Pi, it is an international honor society for education majors. There are well over 200+ students in the Education program and only 40 were invited and I was 1 of 2 African-American Students to get invited.
Currently I have a 3.897 GPA.

The reason I get so excited is the fact that all these accomplishments are coming from a girl that graduated from HS with a 2.027 GPA and was 160 out of 285 in my graduating class. I'm twice my age than I was in HS and I often have to go back an look at my grades to make sure it is really me.
