I started SP on January 12, 2009 and as of today I have lost 8lbs. I didn't really realize how much having a support system in place can help you achieve your goals and make you want to stick to them. Being a mom of four boys one of whom is special need and a full time student a husband who is deployed a lot. I seem to forget that I might need to find a support system to help make my dreams become a reality so thank you SP and my groups. I'm totally floored that in a what seemed like a long time was actually just 4 weeks of hard work playing off. So here I come March 12 for my 60 days on SP and lets see how much I will have dropped by then.
IWIN4LIFE ! What a great accomplishment! Often times we women/nurturers by nature put everyone's needs and wants before our own. Yes - there are certainly things that need our attention to the highest level but we can not forget . . . self.
Four boys can take up a lot of your time but it looks like you are making the time for self. All the best on your schooling, keeping up with the boys and for the safe return of your husband. Wishing you another eight pounds in four week !
It is so easy to get wrapped up in family or our husbands... or the deployments...that we can forget to take time for ourselves; or better yet... finding a good support network for ourselves and our goals. So KUDOS and PROPS to you. So proud of you for your efforts and hard work.
