I am striving to achieve more balance in my life. Spiritually, physically, in the bank, with family and friends, and being at peace with myself. I am a successful beautiful woman facing some realities about my weight and overall health. I will lose 105 pounds and it starts now. 1.1.2012. I love myself and if anyone else forced me to eat crap that could kill me, slow poisons of sorts, I would hurt them so why am I doing this to myself. It's time for a change. I am the one who will break the chain for my family. I will demonstrate the model healthy and vibrant wife, mother, and professional savvy Christian woman!

Member Since: 7/1/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,040

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 105 pounds, at least 2 pounds a week, for the next 52 weeks. I know...that leaves one more pound to

I will lead a healthier and more active life for my benefit, spiritually, as role model for my family and friends, and for my personal and professional advancement as well.

My Program:
I am doing it natural. Water is my program. I am using these first seven days or so for detox. My main meal is based around green veggies and I eat small portions of other foods. The second week and beyond I will eat 1200-1500 calories a day to reach my goal within a year. This first week is 10 minutes of aerobic exercises 7 days a week and 15 minutes of strength 3 days a week. I will increase the by 5 minutes weekly until aerobic is 45 minutes and strength is 30 minutes.

Main goal is to keep it simple! Drink my water, try not to deprive myself of the things I love to eat; just eat them in moderation.

Make healthier choices and stay away from those darn Golden Flakes Cheese Puffs-they are like crack.

Personal Information:
I am Christian learning how to better serve God. I consider myself successful and educated. I am mother to a girl and boy; and most days I am also a husband may beg to differ.

Other Information:
I never snored before! The other day, I snored so loud, I scared myself out of my sleep. That was one of a few on the chain of "wake up" calls.

Top 10 reasons I am going to lose the weight!

1. I choose to live!
2. Never to be denied additional life insurance again
3.To improve my overall health and achieve better balance in my life.
4.To go with the kids and their dad on bikes rides and join them for other activities
5.To breathe quieter
6.To wear what I like
7.So I can inspire others to do the same
8.To model the correct eating and exercises for my children
9.To break the chain of beautiful big black women in our family
10.To love on me a little more
