Hi and welcome to my page! I am a 26 year old Christian from a small town in Minnesota . I've been on spark people since December of '06, however I totally slacked last year. But I love spark, so I'm back and this time I am determined to continue to work towards my goals.

I've been struggling with weight since high school (or maybe even b4 then but the weight really started coming on in HS). I am sick and tired of looking the way I do. It is time to start doing something about it. My sister and I started working out together on March 19th and it feels great! I am ready to get my life on track. I am going to push myself to eat heathly and exercise regularly. I want to begin living a healthy lifestyle and reach my weight loss goal.

Weight Loss Goals:
12/6/06 - Starting Weight: 203
3/19/08 - Current Weight: 198
4/9/08 - Husband's 30th Birthday: 193
5/26/08 - Memorial Day: 185
7/04/08 - Independence Day: 179
7/29/08 - My Anniversary: 175
9/1/08 - Labor Day: 169
10/5/08 - My mom & dad's 40th Anniversary: 162
11/12/08 - My 27th birthday: 155
12/25/08 - Christmas: 147
2/14/09 - Valentine's Day: 138
4/9/09 - Husband's Birthday: 128
5/1/09 - May Day: 124 (Goal Weight)

Weightloss Progress:
4/9/08 - Met my Goal of 193 ~Yay!
5/26/08 - Surpassed Goal By a few lbs 181~ WooHoo!
7/4/08- 177lbs ~ Barely reached my goal. Need to work harder!
7/29/08 - 176lbs ~ Didn't make my Anniversary goal. I slacked BIG TIME this month. August will be a new month, New Me!! Bring it on!!

** I have to realize that If I don't reach my goal weights on the specific dates, to not give up, and to realize that I will reach my goal, it just may take a little longer than what I have down. But I am going to really try reach my weight loss goals they way I have them written down. I think I have it down in a very sensible and healthy way. I KNOW I CAN DO IT! Not reaching my goal weight until May of next year, seems like forever!!! But I can't wait until I have the feeling of being healthy and sexy, even if it's not until next year, it will be worth it!

The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want. -Proverbs 13:25

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. -Proverbs 13:3

"What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which you have of God, and that ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your Spirit which are God's." -I Corinthians 6: 19-20

I must Decrease and He must increase - Christ in me, the hope of glory. If I get out of the way He can do the impossible! If I get in the way, I'm impossible!

    Thank you Alicia for the welcome and words of encouragement. I see we both list Phil. 4:13 in our signatures. That has been my favorite verse since I became a Christian 25 years ago. Best wishes to you in your journey. With God on our side, who can be against us!!

    The lyric I chose has to be my favorite song. It reminds me that no matter what I may go through God is always there preparing the way for me. I just need to have faith in Him and His word. Thank you for your encouraging comment. The verses you added are two of my favorites. May God bless you in all you do and accomplish here.
