Hello I'm Tamika! I have been serious about losing weight since September 2008. Since then, I have been using sparkpeople faithfully. When I need motivation; I read motivational spark pages, read & comment on other's sparkpages & I post blogs. I'm practically doing whatever I can to stay encouraged & not get discouraged. I'm believing that anything is possible for me. I've made the decision that this weight loss journey is not going to be without purpose & determination.

I�ve made it a purpose to celebrate every 5 lbs. It�s easier to celebrate one step at a time instead of overwhelming myself with the big picture (total weight loss goal = 85 lbs). I am so excited to be such an inspiration to those near and far. Previously I tried to lose weight secretly but it did not work because I kept getting discouraged and would quit. That is why I have made it known about my weight loss goals to people at work, my family & friends. I have been so lucky for the amount of support that has been given to me.

�It�s easy to say you�re too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you�ll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses.�
