First big goal surpassed!!! 4 months of hard work and I weighed in this a.m (6/4/07) at 149.6!!! I never thought this would be possible!!!!!!!!!!
***146.6 updated 6/28/07***
As of September 2007: I am maintaining with 1-2 pounds up and down on the scale...Maintaining is HARD! I find myself wanting to "snack" on certain foods and to nibble on stuff while cooking! I really want to lose another 10...So I am trying to get up the momentum to go for it!! Plus exercise!!!
*******UPDATE: March 24, 2008....Yikes, I am slowly gaining! My 8's are super duper tight and the flab is coming back with a vengance!! I fell off the wagon in my eating around Thanksgiving and it has taken me till now to re-commit. I just want to get back to 146 and MAINTAIN!! My 40th is coming up in 3 months, so that is my new goal! I CAN DO IT!! **************************************
As a 38 yr old stay at home mommy of 2. I have completed my first 24 week commitment and am re-commiting another 6 weeks to eating healthy and letting God transform my thinking about food and my body! Lowest weight ever was 132 when I was 24 and I felt fat! I am an emotional eater so the program I am on is very helpful...and to have the sparkpeople website is a BIG help!!

The sudden death of my very best friend woke me up from my unhealthy eating stupor. I am getting on board because and in honor of my best friend, Joe, of 25+years that suddenly passed away one year ago this Feb. 3, he was over 600pds. I know that if he were alive he would be my biggest cheerleader and I really wish I would have gotten onboard sooner, maybe it would have saved him...I lost over 40 pounds by his 40th bday which was June 18, 2007! What a gift!!!

I need to take control of my eating before it kills me!! I am learning something new everyday about all the crud we put in our bodies! It is mind boggling!!!! God has opened my eyes to the "root" of my weight problem and I am on the path to pulling it out for good!

I completed my goal but now it is the hard part MAINTAINING the weight loss and my new healthy eating habits!!! I will shoot for another 5-10 pounds but am NOT going to go crazy with it...I am looking forward to the day when it (food) is NOT my focus!!!

**Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust Him to help you do it, and He will! Psalm 37:5**

**How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth.
Psalm 119:103**

**"What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead." (Hebrews 11:1)**

My Program:
PRISM Weight Loss Program--www.pwlp.com

God + healthy eating=True you! It is very intense but I am feeling great!! No REFINED SUGARS OR PROCESSED stuff=NO Sugars, No Bread, No Pasta, No Desserts 1000-1200 calories a day and you have to weigh, measure and journal everything you eat. I can only weigh in every 6 weeks, so that is going to be hard!!

I am also doing a free online course through www.settingcaptivesfree.com called The Lord's Table

Personal Information:
I live in Arizona but I am from Long Beach, CA

Other Information:
God is so incredibly good!!! He has restored me in the deepest most painful areas and I can't wait to see how He transforms my eating!!!

I am a Jesus Freak, but please don't let that scare you off! After years of self help books and counseling the only One that truly helped me was Jesus...

    Praise God! I am so excited that your daughter made the producer's list. Did her boyfriend make it too? I hope so. They both are blessed with amazing musical talent. And their hearts for God are just wonderful to see.
