As you can see...I have a ways to go! But I KNOW that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE LORD! I have tried on numerous occasions to lose weight and keep it off. It was only after much prayer that I came to the realization that I must put God first in every area of my life and then "shall my plans succeed". This is a new day and new journey for me and I plan to walk with God every step of the way! My starting date is February 5, 2007 and I plan to acheive my goal by February of 2009...and my reward will be an inland cruise to Alaska with my husband. Cheer me on!!!

My Goals:
I was able to meet my first fact, I surpassed it. I lost a total of 27.5 pounds the first month.

I was weighed in at my doctor's office yesterday (6 weeks and 2 days since I began) and I have lost 38 pounds! I am smiling...and KNOWING that God is causing me to acknowledge HIM in all of my ways and HE is helping me every step of the way!

today is April 20 and I was weighed in and I gained 1 pound! It made me sad becuz' I am eating right and walking with weights. My doctor told me that it was due to building muscle and that is a good thing becuz' muscle burns fat faster. I'm sticking with my current program and hoping to see changes soon!

My Program:
I am eating entrees that have less than 300 calories twice a day. Healthy Choice seems to have the best prices ($1.50-$1.75/entree) I drink 8 glasses of water every day and watch my caloric/carb/fat intake so that I do not exceed the recommended amounts. I am currently walking 30 min/day (a minimum of 3Xs/week), I have also begun to walk 1 hour every other day. I'm still wearing the weights on my ankles and it has really helped me.

Personal Information:
My name is Pati...I am 48 (when did that happen???) I live in an itty-bitty town in eastern Nebraska with my husband (Randy), my 15 year-old self-proclaimed princess of a daughter and my almost 13 year-old grandson. Life is exciting and it's getting better every day!

Other Information:
My fav movie is Happy Feet. If you haven't seen it...I question your level of happiness. It's a must see. Don't deny yourself any longer!
