The story line takes you on a journey through the life of Jasmine Tucker a successful advertising executive who is unhappy with her exterior self due to her weight. Her insecurities hinder her from living her life’s potential and purpose. After several e... Mon, 19 May 2008 09:49:38 EST Hi Sorors! I am the neo of the group. I just crossed in April of this year in Michigan. However, I have been a member of spark people since January. I did lose 10lbs before I fell off the wagon, so when our chapter decided to do Delta Biggest Loser I knew exactly where to go for my meal plans and support. I am trying to get the rest of the sorors on my team to use this site because I know it works. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and I look forward to being as much of a support to you all as I know...

Get a stash cabinet. <BR> 2. Make up your mind that certain things a... Fri, 14 Mar 2008 10:42:44 EST Epsilon Xi Soror! Hey Sorors! Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself!

I want to put a challenge out to the group for this week. Let's all consume more water this week. Start with 32oz when your feet hit the floor in the morning. Drink another 32oz before noon. Drink another 32oz in afternoon and while you workout. You can not add any Crystal Light! I add the following combinations to my water for taste: lemons an...

What other reasons do you want to shed those unwanted pounds? Is it for your birthday, an anniversary, a vacation? For me, I want to lose weight so I can fit back into all my size 8 clothes. I lost the weight once, then gained it back. Now I need to get back down so I can feel comfortable in my clothes again. Also, my 35th birthday is in September, so it would be great to be in the best shape of my life by then.

I wanted to see how everyone is doing with their weight loss plan and how you're staying motivated to be consistent with your exercise. <BR> <BR> I stay motivated by looking in my huge closet full of size 8 clothes that I can't squeeze into because I've gained so much weight. I have such a limited wardrobe right now....that keeps me waking up every morning at 5:45 to exercise. Fri, 22 Dec 2006 09:48:36 EST Me OO~OOP SORORS!

Well let's set this short term weekly goal. We have all set our long term goals, but we must start small. If we don't loose the 2 pounds each week, let's look at our monthly average. Let's pledge today to focus on exercising daily and watching our calorie intake as a GROUP! Right now I need some encouragement.
