I had my 40th-birthday in September and although I did not reach the goals that I had committed to before I turned 40 I realize that it's never too late. I have been away for awhile, outside of logging in, getting Sparkpoints, and playing trivia. I am now focusing on me and committed to taking care of me regardless of what I have to let go of to achieve my health and weight loss goals. I still need to lose 100 + pounds but I know through the support of family and friends and of course the Sparkpeople community I can do anything. I continue to enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, working on self-improvement, reading and surfing the internet, bringing out the best in others, looking for ways to continue with and making people laugh. I continue with attending school part-time and looking forward to the great life ahead of me. And most recently I have started beading as a hobby and taking a course to become a certified wedding planner.

Fitness Minutes: 8,219

My Goals:
To lose 125 pounds. Not so much for vanity but for overall health. My goal is to be able to put on a form fitting red dress and "strut my stuff" like the diva I know I am. I want to bring out the best in others by helping them with their weight loss goals and challenges.

My Program:
I recommitted myself to taking care of me and achieving my health and weight loss goals. I am concentrating on 3 small goals a week until they become habit. I am also working out 5 times a week for 35 min. As my weight drops I will increase the time, intensity, and number of days per week.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
For the Spark Challenge Bootcamp, I'm looking forward to working on loosing 10 lbs. and feeling better.

    MissQueenM: we’re in the same boat. I turned 40 in April. BUT GOD! He didn’t bring us this far to leave us now. Happy to see you on SURVIVORS today. I pray it becomes a habit, and we can continue to learn more about you. Continue to do what you’re doing, we’ll break down these 100+ pounds together in Jesus name. I pray you'll continue to be active here on Spark.
