The momentum of progress is unstoppable.

-Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I've always had this constant tug of war with my weight. I take control and then I give it away. I am now refusing to give in . I don't have many pictures to share from the past because I wouldn't allow my picture to be taken. I didn't have courage to have that visual looking back at me. I didn't like myself very much then. BUT NOW.....
I know I have what it takes to walk forward, step by step to a healthier me.
A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34

Fitness Minutes: 10,200

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 30 # by August 2011.

To stop allowing food to be such a big part of my me.

To stay focused on my desire to feel healthier and to drop the weight.

My Program:
I am eating a low fat, moderate protein and complex carb diet. Low sodium.

No caffeine.

Daily intake 1000-1300 calories per day.

Drink mimium of 8 glasses of water daily.

Exerise at least 30 minutes/day 5 times/week.

Personal Information:
Last year I went from a size 16 dress size down to a size 6/8 under the guidance of a weight loss center. I did great, reached my goal and felt a new energy that I had not had in a very long time. I reached the maintenance part of my program and slowly starting incorporating more carbs in my diet. Well this gave me the idea that I could eat more junk food. I slowly started to gain some of the weight back. I got back on my plan, but found myself grazing at night. The crazy thing about this is that I knew my caloric intake was increasing, but I would do it anyway. I told myself, "it's okay, just get back on plan tomorrow".

I have since gained back 40 #. Yuck! I feel the all to familiar belly bloat and the "I feel fat" feeling.

I have reestablished my goals beginning today. I don't want to get back to a weight in the 140's. I DON'T WANT the weight back.

Other Information:
Keep God first. The rest will follow.

    A friend is someone we turn to
    When our spirits need a lift,
    A friend is someone we treasure
    For our friendship is a gift,
    A friend is someone who fills our lives
    With beauty, joy, and grace
    And makes the world we live in
    A better and happier place.

    -Jean Kyler McManus

    Have a blessed and healthy Monday!

    Easter Is The Gift...

    Easter is the gift of HOPE
    Easter is the gift of PEACE
    Easter is the gift of LOVE
    Let us rejoice in Him,
    Who gives them all.

    May God bless you at Easter,
    And keep you all year through.
    May God give you all the faith it takes,
    To make your dreams come true.
    May His love and wisdom always help,
    To guide you on your way.
    May His light shine down upon you now,
    To bless your Easter Day.

    "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life..."
    ~John 3: 16~

    Much Love,
