My weight inched upward over the years. I started sparking 5/10/12; starting weight-256 lbs. By 12/10/12, I weighed 214.5. Then I regressed and gained 7-8 lbs. over Jan. and Feb. On 3/28/13, I retook control; adjusted caloric intake and increased physical activity. UPDATE: 5/10/13. My scale finally inched downward in late April. On May 10, 2013, I weighed in at 216. I also moved my goal weight lower, from 206 to 201.

Member Since: 5/10/2012

Fitness Minutes: 21,398

My Goals:
I saved my old jeans. They are hanging in my closet. I want to wear them again.

Update: March 10, 2013--I am wearing my old jeans!

Update: May 10, 2013--Got back down to 216, so 40 pounds lost for the year and 10 more to go!

My Program:
I did the South Beach Diet (SBD) to jump start weight loss. 12 pounds lost during the two-week 1st Phase of SBD. After that, I shifted to losing 1-2 pounds/wk and increased exercising. Started walking (baby steps) and gradually increased cardio time and distance. Included some light weight lifting (which I used to do and enjoyed).

Update: March 10, 2013--I stopped logging food for two months and ended up gaining 7.5 pounds. Since logging, I've lost 3 pounds. So I learned an important lesson. I need to keep logging what I eat.

    Good Morning

    Dropping by to wish you a great day and week ahead, also wishing you a Blessed Christmas filed with God's abundant blessings..

    In closing I leave you with the following poem!

    Christmas Candy Cane Poem about Jesus

    Look at the Candy Cane
    What do you see?
    Stripes that are red
    Like the blood shed for me
    White is for my Savior
    Who’s sinless and pure!
    “J” is for Jesus My Lord, that’s for sure!
    Turn it around
    And a staff you will see
    Jesus my shepherd
    Was born for Me!
