Spark People Is TOTALLY Awesome!!! I have been on SP since July 26th 2009 and this is the 1st time I have really felt like I am getting somewhere on my weight loss journey! SP has helped me overcome my preconceptions concerning where I feel like I should be as opposed to where I should really be. ( ie... I should have lost 50 lbs by now vs. I lost 2 lbs this week!!) I feel empowered to overcome this time.. In fact... this time IS different.I love the people here on SP too! They have been a key to my weight loss. I NEVER thought that support from others was all that important to me. I was kind of a hermit( sometimes I still am) but I am realizing that I can draw a lot of support from my fellow SP'ers. Thanks you guys!! You ROCK!

Member Since: 7/26/2009

Fitness Minutes: 390

My Goals:
To go hiking,swimming,
rollercoaster riding and traveling with my family.

To Powerwalk at least 20 min straight!

To prove to me that I can do it!

To lose 100 lbs by my 41st birthday.

To inspire others to step outside of their comfort zone too!.

My Program:
I am trying to stay between 1300 - 1650 Cal per day

I journal all my meals

I am Powerwalking 3 days a week

I only celebrate the holidays on the actual holiday.

Personal Information:
I am a 40 yr old mom of 3 teens. I started the program at 300 lbs. I love to sing, read, and homeschool my son Tim.
I have a long list of things that I want to start doing in the next year... It is different for me this time because I am relying totally on Christ to overcome my addiction and I am focused on small goals instead of expecting the unreasonable!

Other Information:

    Need a kick in the butt?
    Handing out buttkicks to friends I haven't seen in awhile. If you feel embarrassed to come back because you haven't been making the best choices: DON'T BE. We've all been there! Get back here and start strong!

    Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the compliment. It means a lot when you have peers that notice and take the time to tell you how happy they are for you.

    I really am excited about this journey this time around. I have a program that is working for me. I don't have to take pills or eat weird food or have to go hungry. I think this time around my mindset is so different and I am happy.

    You are also doing great Jenni, so keep working it! We Can Do This!!!

    Thanks for your pair of hot heels. It is one of my goals: to be able to wear a pair of hot pumps on the town without my feet killing me by the end of it. It was kind of hard to wear them and support 280 pounds of weight!

    You're doing so well on your journey. I hope you had a WONDERFUL birthday!

    Thanks Jenni. You are an important part of my support system also. I don't know what I would do without friends like you and all those I have met on SP.

    By the way I updated more completed GOALS.
    I am sooo excited.

    Thanks for cheering me on. It helps me to feel like I will make it this time.
