I am sick and tired of being sick and tired (Fannie Lou Hammer).....although this is a popular quote it really illustrates how I feel about my weight at this particular point in my life.

Hello guys ...I chose to join Sparkpeople because you guys have encouraged me to come out of my shell and get the support I need in my life to become a better and healthier person. I want to be a healthier person, not just for me but for my husband. I want to be here longer for us - I love him and I want us to spend a long life together. I want my overall self image to improve.

I want to be the "diva" of the group - I want to feel confident not in just my skills but in my overall appeareance. Feeling beautiful both inside and out is very important. I am a teacher and I want to radiate that confidence to my students and myself.

So I am taking this moment in my life to better myself and become healthier in the process. I have a "BUCKET LIST"and believe it or not joining an online support group is on that list why not live in the moment, right?

My Goals:
I have a few goals for my weight loss:

1. I want to experience some weight loss each week ( no matter the amount)

2. I want to lose a pants size at least every two months.

3. Become more feminine as the weight falls off!

4. want to wear a sundress, a pair of killer jeans and a tanktop this summer - 2011!

5. I want to wear my first pair of high heels/stillettos this summer (without looking crazy)!

My Program:
Prayer! Trust God!

I work out 2-3 hours daily (even on Sundays) spin, zumba, weight lifting and step!

I drink lots of water (gallon) daily....

Better food choices, along w/ a cheat day just for my sanity!

Think more positively!
