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


Member Since: 7/31/2008

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.

    "This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

    Take time to think...
    it is the source of power

    Take time to play...
    it is the secret of perpetual youth

    Take time to read...
    it is the fountain of wisdom

    Take time to pray...
    it is the greatest power on earth

    Take time to laugh...
    it is the music of the soul

    Take time to give...
    it is too short a day to be selfish
