Hi, I am (once again) finally ready to shed the extra pounds I've been dragging around with me and I'm looking forward to sharing with and learning from all of you!

Member Since: 8/15/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,052

My Goals:
I made my goal to loose 5% of my body weight, Now I'm going after 10% which would mean a loss of 28lbs and would bring me close to 250.... I haven't been there in a while!!

Update: As of March 29th, 2011 I have made my 10% goal. So what's my next goal?

To lose 15% by May 10th, 2011 and preferably to be under 240lbs by Easter.

To mark the occasion, I plan to do my BIG CHOP (That is, to cut off my straight hair) on Good Friday.

Continue, to pray for me!

My Program:
The main thing I am concentrating on at the moment is eating right and being active a minimum of 3 times a week.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I believe that there is someone out there who shares at least some of my frustration. I am rejoining Sparkpeople and I just noted that on April 3rd, 2008, less than 2 months after having given birth to a baby I weighed 262 lbs. Alot by any measure, but guess what? Today I weigh even more! 279.6. This is the most I've weighed in my life!!! I have a less than average sized husband who loves me to bits, but I feel like Hercules beside him! I want to be healthy, to have energy, to be active and be a witness and a source of encourgement others. Through dedication and much, so much prayer, I know I can do it. Lord, help me as I embark on this journey. A journey that at times feels like its done in vain.

    Encouragement from the CML team
    This week's lyrics are from a song that touched my life deeply. When I experience LOVE from above it cannot help but change my perspective on everything.

    You Are Loved
    by Hope's Call
    Album: Live to Love
    by Hope's Call

    Verse 1:
    Have you ever felt the Father's love
    As He holds you in His arms
    When you start to say I'm sorry
    He says you've done nothing wrong
    Have you failed to meet the standards
    That you thought you should attain
    Only to hear Him call your name, saying

    You are loved beyond your failures
    You are loved beyond your past
    The hope that you've imagined
    Is now reality at last
    You are loved with no conditions
    You are loved with no remorse
    The scars of your forgiveness
    Are engraved upon the Lord
    You are loved

    Verse 2:
    Have you seen your life be torn apart
    By things you could not help
    Until you finally reached the point
    Where you could only blame yourself
    Have you laid your head to sleep
    And think you'll always be alone
    Then awaken to His voice calling you home, He says

    (copy and paste link )

    May the truth of these lyrics renew you this week.

    Thanks TMOMMA73. That scripture is so true. Because I know that I would not have been able to come this far on my weight loss journey without Him.

    Just noticed that we like the same verse from the bible. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!! That is one of my faves. Congrats on your weight loss. That is awesome!!!
