Hi! I have decided I can no longer jeopardize the future of my children and have to get this weight off!!! Not to mention I'm tired of carrying around two people. I consider myself a high achiever! So why haven't I conquered this weight? Don't worry - I will.

I used to be so disciplined with taking my lunch to work, enjoying healthy snacks, and working out daily. All of that has gone by the wayside. I can't tell you how many times I have joined Weight Watchers and purchased other diet products and information.

But this is 2008, New Year, New Me! My pastor's first sermon of the year was Starting off the Year Right. It really made me think of the areas where I needed to do just that. Although I felt my weight was always an issue, I continued to ignore it. Not any more.

Just wait and see by faith the victorious outcome that is yet to be! I am a conqueror!

September 2008 - I'm back! I have my motivation. I went MIA due to finishing grad school, kids, new job. Just more excuses. I am more focused now than ever because I don't want to die of heart disease like my grandfathers, my father, & my uncle. Who is going to take care of my children? What example am I setting for them? The time is now to take control and defeat this monster that I have created.

8. Write down everything I eat

A long range goal: I want to run a marathon.


My Program:
My first step is utilizing Spark People and getting the support I need to succeed.

Praying and asking God to allow me to be disciplined. There is no reason for this!

Purchase only healthy snacks.

Participate and finish challenges!

Eat balanced meals & snacks.

Portion Control!!!

Encouraging words:

Good things come to those who wait.

There will be days when it seems like our goal is sooo far away and that its almost impossible! Dont ever get discouraged!!! Use those feelings and thoughts as your inspiration and motivation to push on and continue on to your goal! You will get there, but not if you give up! Anything and everything is possible you just have to put in the work!! Just look at what you have achieved so far!!! Keep up the hard work! (Stormy's Challengers Team Leader - Aurora0101)
