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.

    Hello! Just stopping by to wish you a wonderful week, and to remind you that you are awesome!

    Remember to do something special for yourself today! You deserve it!

    I went to Wal-Mart with my friend the other night. She was there to buy Valentine's for her the children to take to their party the next day. As we worked our way through the crowded aisle, searching for Valentine's that were appropriate, a gentleman walked up to us. He said, "You know, they won't let kids celebrate Christmas in schools, but they insist on them bringing Valentine's. I think the best thing to do is write 'JESUS LOVES YOU!' on every Valentine!"

    Of course, we agreed with him. And, as he walked away, we discussed the fact that what he had said was really true.

    And so, I am sending you a special Valentine, to let you know that you are special to me; but more importantly, just to say: JESUS LOVES YOU!

    Happy Valentine's Day

    You Are Often In My Thoughts

    Love is a command
    That Christians are called to do;
    Our Lord says "Love your God,
    And love your neighbor, too."

    Some people are easy to love;
    They are human rays of sun;
    They light up every life,
    And encourage everyone.

    You are in that group,
    So I sincerely want to say:
    You are often in my thoughts;
    Happy Valentine's Day!
