Weight loss has always been my goal. I try to sound noble about wanting energy and a better quality of life, but I truly just want to look good in clothes and feel confident. While this is not wrong, I seek balance. I desire I full life and all that entails. I want to be who God desires me to be.

Today (3/17/11) starts Phase 2 of PRISM and modifying it to include the problem areas. I am working with a friend which is most beneficial to staying on track when I feel like giving up. I need to find something that I can do rather than eat when I feel overwhelmed. I seek new tips and tricks- anything to get me back to my right weight and a level of confidence that helps me to become who I was created to be- one day at a time.

I will use this site as a way to track my food and activity and journal thoughts. I want to take back my life and have the energy that is MINE!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I know that you had said you do not belong to a PRISM support group. To be honest that is where my strength has been drawn from. God has provided a fantastic group of ladies that keep coming each phase. This group of ladies supports encourages and helps each other. I really believe that has made all the difference. I am held accountable by each one of those ladies each week. And I wouldn't have the success I have today if it worn't for God's placement of these ladies in my life. To even find one accountability partner will make a huge difference in your life. If your husband is willing to commit at the same level you are commiting, you may just have that partner right now. I say a partner commited as you are because really if he wants ice cream who is he going to take down with him? lol You both need to be in it otherwise find a friend who you can be honest with and who will tell you the truth and be there for you.

    Godspeed !

    Hi, my name is Jessica. i live in Walla Walla, I ran a search, to find people in my area and was told you live within 25 miles. I am looking for walking buddies in my area to just get out there and pound the pavement with me. If you do in fact live close to Walla Walla and have any interest, please look me up on this site and feel free to contact me and get to know me.

    I am brand new to this area and lost all my girlfriends who I could call and say "wanna go for a walk?"

    Thanks and hang in there!

    I live in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island northwest of Seattle (on a map follow I-5 north from Seattle to Mt Vernon and go west). I know the Inland Empire. I've been to Walla Walla several years ago and to Spokane many times. I grew up in Omak, north of Wenatchee. My mom still lives there and I visit as often as I can. I'm so glad to hear that you are going back on Phase 1. Let's be support for each other. Be Blessed.
