Philippians 4:13
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

No one else can make us what we wish to be...only we ourselves, with the power that strengthens within.

I am a child of the KING, a KING JAMES 1611 Bible Believer, a wife, a mother, a step mom, a mother-in-law, a granny nanny, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a neighbor, a cousin, a niece, an X etc, a flower grower, a jewelry maker, a wood worker, a feeder of wildlife, with the desire to be a motivator to help others, as I try to reach my goals, and stop yo-yo dieting forever...

The Continuing Process... January 2014...
It's been a long time coming, but here I am back, with the same goals. I did manage to keep the weight off for 5 years this time. Then something wonderful happened to me! I met and married an absolutely wonderful man. A true companion, who treats me like a princess. He has taken me out to eat all types of cultural foods, and has cook absolutely marvelous meals. The weight has crept back on, and NOW is the time to get this back under control... All the necessary ingredients are here, the will to START, the CHALLENGE, the SUPPORT, and SPARKPEOPLE!!! So here I go... off to a great start... and excited about the journey ahead... reaching goals... seeing accomplishments!!! YES, I'm READY!!!!

It's January 1st 2009. I am Obese my B.M.I. is 30.4!
I'm going to start this year becoming healthy, and happy with myself. It is discussing to be OBESE!
In just 15 days, my B.M.I. has dropped to 27.9. I've gone from being obese to being overweight!
My next goal is to see my B.M.I. drop, I'm going for the Average SIZE!
"My 2009 Team SCALE BACK ALABAMA Challenge Goal: Lose 50 Pounds and be at my goal weight on January 1, 2010" This will be quite a feat as I usually lose my weight every year in January, February, and March, then gain it all back + before January the following year! It will be great to be in my "SKINNY" clothes for the 1st Christmas ever!!!

WOOHOO, today, March 17,2009, I celebrate! I am in the healthy BMI range one more time in my life! Since Jan.1,09 I've gone from OBESE (200 #'s) TO NORMAL (167 #'s)!!!! I am 17 pounds away from my Goal Weight, which will be in the middle of the Normal Range, for my 5'9" tall frame! With the support and help of 2 very special team members, Maurel80 and Chiquitahunny, who have joined with me in the Team Scale Back Alabama, Spring Forward Challenge!
Today April 8th my Spark People 3 months anniversary, my daughters 20th birthday, my grand daughters 5th birthday (my 20 year old doesn't have a child) and a day of celebration! This is what SparkPeople is all about; meeting (the longer your here, the more friends you meet) friends with the same goals, and desires, who join together sharing support and motivation to make our quest for a healthier You, a fun-filled process! Each NEW MEMBER brings excitement to our team! I've gained some real Spark friends along the way, that make my day!

May 3, 09. My team mates have invited me to join with them in the Suitsuit to Swimsuit Bootcamp. It's been a long time since attempting to fit into that old camo swimsuit, but I took the plunge, and it fit! There is room for much improvement, but I'm on my way! Several years ago I would wear it when we went to our private hunting camp. My husband supported me in the decision to join the bootcamp, and he took a before pic, so we could see what the results will be. Looking forward to a thinner more Firm old granny...ME!
May 19,09. Oh YIPPEE, I celebrate today!!! MINUS -40 POUNDS! This is a wonderful feeling!!! I can almost taste the Championship of Victory!!! Just 10 more pounds to Goal!!!! Thanks all my teammates and Sparkfriends who have kept me going...YIPPEE, YIPPEE!!! I'M JUMPING FOR JOY!
