Hello all and Welcome to my Page!
Not sure where to start on info about myself. I have been a memeber of sparks for several years now! I was doing very wonderful until.......There is that Word...UNTIL, or But THEN, Or how About LIfe Happend......I want to see Change!! Change me OH Lord!! I do not want this weight! I want to be healthy! You know those quotes you see or read that are suppose to be cute or make ya laugh.... You know like " I keep trying to lose weight... but it keeps finding me! ~Author Unknown~or, "Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not! ~Author Unknown~ how @ this one "Dieting is wishful shrinking. ~Author Unknown~ Then My personal favorite, "Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake. ~Author Unknown~ Today the madness stops!! Yes, I have been gone awhile! Yes, I gained almost all my weight back!! It is a vicious cycle! I am tired No more excuses!! I have got to Change the pattern, the cycle has to break!!!

I am going to look in the mirror one day soon and see the skinny girl and scream WE DID IT!!! I know that God has been with me each step I have taken and he truly is the drop of Grace that is in each step that I take!! My Path has been a crazy one! Even in my potholes God has been Good!! I welcome all ideas, prayers, comments and support I can get! I ask that all that read my page feel the love of Jesus Christ and be Blessed!

Update: May 20, 2011
I have been moving right along. I am kinda been disappointed in myself because my 5 year spark anniversary is approaching and I am not able to say all the goals on that day I joined have been meet....but that is just me trying to have a pity party.... The truth is I have lost in one month 11.6 pounds, I also meet my goal today of drinking my water daily all 64oz plus some...I am seeing change! With God's help I will win this war!!

Update. 6/20/11
Happy to report that I have seen a 22.6 pounds fall off in the last 2 months! I have almost reached my 10 percent goal I set for myself and should meet that goal on my 3 month report...I can almost see the 200's I know that is one of the things that keeps me motivated!! I have started cardio and Strength training. Each step God is with me and I am seeing the change!! I welcome those to read my blog, support, ideas, prayers as I continue this journey!

It is two days till my 3 month checkin! But I had to jump on really quick to celebrate that I loss 10 % before my 3 months!! Woo Hoo!! It feels great!!

WOW 3 months this past month has been a roller-coaster, some days I logged my calories, some days I didn't, some days I went and worked out at Curves some days I did not, I went away to see my aunt and a mini vacay so Zumba did not happen 3 times a week.... I say all of this to remind myself that yes, You did make your 10% goal but girl you have to keep your head in the game....I know myself and this is the time I start to slack off!!!! I have lost a total as of today 33.2......Keep Moving next mini goal So I will keep moving forward 20 pounds in 2 months...Lets GO

10/24/11 Well, it is just a few days off from my 6 month anniversary, but been very sick with ovarian cyst and my asthma has been trying to take over my life right now....I will say that since I have been eating healthy, and drinking my water I really think that It has been key to keeping my immune system in check.

I also want to thank Each of you that has supported me or been on this journey with me!! Hugs!! Keep on Crushing those pounds away!!

11/20 Well due to some asthma problems my goals are on hold for right now... this is just a small bump in the road...working with my doctors...If all goes well will be able to start BLC 20 once the new year rolls around....Giving myself permission to take a break, a healthy that will keep my asthma in check and hopefully me off predisone!!!

Another quote that I found today 01/04/2009My quote is from Helen Keller

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

" The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.~Helen Keller~"

"You can't break a bad habit by throwing it out the window. You've got to walk it slowly down the stairs." ~Mark Twain~

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. ~Jim Ryun
