I am a wretch, saved by God's amazing grace.

I'm not a perfect girl. I have bad hair days. I fight with my friends. I have acne. I'm clumsy. I don't wear makeup. My nails are always broken. My hair is always in a ponytail. I'm not skinny.

But God thinks I'm beautiful...

I'm not a perfect Christian. I've done a lot of things I'm ashamed of. I never have any money. I get stressed. I can really be a jerk sometimes. I'm impatient. I'm lazy. I'm not strong enough. Sometimes, I just don't know what to do.

But God still loves me...

I don't deserve it. I am totally unworthy. But He loves me anyway. He loves me so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross so that I could come to heaven and be with him. Even though I keep on turning my back on Him, even though I keep sinning against Him, He still calls me back to Him, heals me, and makes me clean. And I will never be alone again.

He loves you that way too.

My Goals:
I want to weigh 150 lbs by my wedding, which was going to be in June, but now we have moved it back to December because we really wanted to get married near Christmas, so I have a whole year now!

My Program:
I am working on eating as close to 1400 calories as possible every day. I am walking at least 2 miles everyday and doing crunches. I need to start doing more strength training exercises and intense cardio.

    emoticon emoticon to the 50 Pound Challenge Team! I’m sure you’ll love it here just as much as we do. The support and inspiration you get from being here, will help quite a bit with your journey. We’re here to support and encourage each other as much as possible, in order to keep us focused.

    There's an "Introduction" section on our team forum with a few intro questions that most members fill. Copy it from the READ ONLY topic, then go BACK to click on "INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO THE TEAM FORM", then click "create new topic", and paste it to introduce yourself to the team. This helps us and also members of our team get to know you a bit better. Just in case you don't care to post at this time, I'd also like to invite you to join in on our team's Birthday Date List. We keep a list of our members birthdays so we can send each one of our team members, birthday greetings on their birthday. I normally get the month and day you were born from the last question of your introduction post, but you also welcome to Sparkmail me the month and day you were born if you'd like to be included....if you wish not to be, that's fine also!

    Looking forward to traveling this journey with you!
