Welcome to my Spark Page - glad you could stop in...


So all the stuff below... gone. Time to start (again) from the beginning. Round and round I go... when does it stop? I wish the heck I could know! I think if I had a higher self-esteem it would help me want to improve myself more but it is hard to do. When youare used to being the butt of people's critisims or snyde comments it really does not boost the self worth you feel. Although I KNOW all this I still live each day the same as I always to. I know I should feel I am worth it but it just so hard to believe anymore. So I have alot to work on other than the weight issues. Here to change! Let's hope I can!


I thought it high time I update. I have now lost 68% of my goal. That is over 50% and that is amaizing! I have NEVER dedicated myself this long to anything just for me. Well, this is not completely for me - My Hubby and Son as well - but still... 32% left to go? That sounds pretty darned great!

What can I say? I have been trying to lose this weight for too long but never could get it off. In reality it was because I had to admit a few things about myself to understand my past failures. Self control is my main problem. Now since I am a Mom (YAY!) I want to be sure I am heathy for him and be able to teach him to take care of himself as I have not.

My Goals:
I would love to lose the 50 lbs I am hauling around.

My Program:
I am trying to watch all I eat. Cut out the junk foods. Cut out soda (one glass a day if any). Exercise at least 3 times a week. Try to be patient when the scale stays the same time after time...

Personal Information:
I am a new Mom (November, 2006). Been married now for almost 13 years to the best husband. He has been such a great supporter. He does not need to lose any weight (the poop!) but still he will have the same things as I at meals, though it might be twice as much. We go to the gym together and he is always paying me complements after my tough workouts on how great I am doing and not to give up. He is my motivational muse to keep going to the gym regularly.

Other Information:
As of 7/21/2008 I have lost a total of 30 (thats T-H-I-R-T-Y) pounds. I only have 20 to reach my goal!!

1/13/2009 - update:

I have lost over 50%!! 68% to be exact. It feels good to now I am doing this all on my own (well, not totally on my own, thanks to all of you!). It makes me feel I can do other things. I have more energy to chase my son aroung - he loves to play "chase me"; he will stand there and wiggle his butt and that is his way to telling me he wants me to chase him. He is such a cutie!!!
