I feel pretty good about losing 8 pounds.

All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me...
Philippians 4:13

Celebrate every pound lost by exercising, and you will be that much closer to losing one more pound. Before you know it, you will have reached your goal weight.

The only way to be successful is to accept who you are at every stage. Take a picture of yourself and look at it. See yourself!!!!!
We got big because we allowed it to happen. I have accepted that and now I am going to change that. I am not dieting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not dieting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to make good choices and exercising for better health. I am worth working out for!!!!!!

Fitness Minutes: 537

My Goals:
First goal is to tell myself everyday that I am worthy of a healthy lifestyle.
Second goal is to make better choices to improve my health and fitrness level.
Third goal is to lose weight effectively with exercise.

My Program:
I am following the meal plan as closely as possible. Some substitutions have to be made just because it is impossible to go to the store eveytime simething new appears. I haven't been able to get in the exercises yet, but I am attempting to get it started today.

Personal Information:
My name is Benita. I am in my late thirties and have one son. I live in a small town in VA. I like sports, movies, books, and games
I spent 15 years as a foster parent of special needs children. Although I still have the heart for these children, I experienced burnout from not taking care of myself at the same time. Now, I teach middle and high school math in a small Christian school.

Other Information:
My son is one of the reasons I am trying to be healthier. I want to be a good example for him. I would also like to live to see him grown, married, and with children of his own. I would like to be active and healthy so I can watch my grandchildren grow up.

    Yes! It sounds like we have quite a lot in common!! And you are right about the word "diet", and I know better!! emoticon A "gift" to myself (& my family) is a WONDERFUL way to think of it!! emoticon Thank you for the perspective! Very helpful! emoticon
    I know EXACTLY what you mean about being on every "D" word (LOL) on the planet, and EQUALLY understand about life getting in they way and the "lose-gain-lose-gain" cycle!! emoticon And it STINKS!!
