Hi my name is Shell and I am starting over

Member Since: 7/16/2007

Fitness Minutes: 1,505

My Goals:
My goal is to loose 100 lbs. It was 10 lbs here 5 lbs there and before I knew it it was 100. I have to lose this for me. Don't get me wrong I Iove myself and my life and my family loves me as I am. But when I see pics of me or what I used to look like..well we all know how I feel. I have to get this weight off for my health. I always am tired and have back aches and some days it's hard to walk.. But my goal is to weigh 130 puonds. If the Lord wants me smaller He will make that happen too. But all I am striving for is to loose 100 pounds.

mini goals:
July 16,2008 to have lost 50 pounds =lost 46 lbs

starting over Dec 28, 2010 goal to lose 75 pounds

My Program:
I have changed the way I eat...I am on a 1200-1500 calorie diet. I LOVE sweet tea which is one of my downfalls. That has been a struggle..At first I would allow myself 1 glass a week..I have found that the sugar in that one glass really makes me sluggish..I do have a glass of sweet tea on rare occasion..A treat to me..And also I have joined a gym. It's slow going there but atleast its going.

Personal Information:
My name is really Sheila but my family calls me Shell I live in Missouri

Other Information:
I am a wife of a GRAND husband and mom of 2 children and grandmother of 4. I love to hunt (deer and turkey) with bow and gun. I love to read. I work at a southern gospel radio station where I am the morning DJ and I also work in the office. My parents are both preachers and so was my G-pa and my husband is also a preacher and my family all sings in church. God has given me the talent of playing several instruments. I am still blessed with both parents and 4 sisters and a host of nieces and nephews. Family is very important to me (another reason to loose weight )

    I'm really excited for you. I'm thrilled that you are excited about ezercising. What got me running was pushing myself that extra 30 seconds at a time. Now I can run for 15 - 17 minutes at a time. My next mile stone will be to run an entire 5k. We will succeed, one step at a time.

    Thank you for stopping by my page. I want to encourage you. Last year, actually a year ago yesterday, I had 109 pounds to lose. I only have 34 more to go. I did it by just looking a two pounds at a time, then five. I started changing my track so that all I saw was those 2 or 5 pounds at a time. Periodially--on milestones--I stretch out my tracker to see where I have come from and how far I have to go.

    Keep praying and work through the tough times. The tough times will come, and the set-backs will come, but don't give up. God's blessings on your journey--Slimsuccess
