HI! This is the first site I've ever associated myself with and it's very exciting to be part of such a wonderful group of winners!!! I have a lot of weight to lose and hope my experience(s) and "story" can help and/or encourage someone else! Whenever anyone, anywhere reaches out for help - I want the hand of LOVE to be there. Help me to spread that love. God bless us all!!

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25

Member Since: 9/16/2007

Fitness Minutes: 15,239

My Goals:
I have continued to gain weight since the day I quit drinking, '94. I want to look like I did the day my DH proposed. I want my mom to "see" me healthy (she died wanting to see that). I want to learn to manage my weight and health as successfully as my daddy has for decades. I want to wear the smallest size of all the clothes I own. I want to wear my mom's favorite outfit of mine. I want to live a very long time for my grandchild, William, who was born 3-19-08. I want to feel good about myself and my looks and I want to feel as if I have control over what I put in my mouth! When I reach my weight goal - I'm buying a kayak!!

My Program:
I have been tracking every thing I put in my mouth since 8/25/07 (sorry, started w/ FitDay - it's just too much to switch, hopefully someday). I drink a min. 64 oz water daily. I want to walk 60min./4x week - and hopefully will start an exercise group this year!!

Personal Information:
Hi! My name is Robin! I live in Orange County, CA. I am a proud member of AA (w/ 15 yrs sobriety) and gloriously, deliriously in love with my husband!! I have 1 bird/child- an African Grey, named SerenadeMe. We have 1 precious, incredible grandchild, William Howard, who was born perfectly healthy 3-19-08.

Other Information:
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness...

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone...

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,

reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

--Audrey Hepburn

    My name is Minega....trust me this is my real name and being an african name it obviously has a meaning. It means "Arsenal" in my native lunguage. I was just curious to learn how you come up with such a name. Is it just a coincidence or it mean something else in your lunguage...or it is simply an achronom to something!
    I'm from Rwanda but i have lived in the states for a short time!

    HI Robin, It's been so long since I've heard from you. I hope all is well with you. Keep up the good work on your weight loss, you're getting near that goal. Your mama would be very proud of you. Take care.

    Welcome back Robin!! Remember me? I was one of your old SP friends!! I can certainly understand all the time SP can eat away! Hope you find a good group and continue to get the motivation to put food in the right perspective. God made it for us to eat to live not live to eat! Working on that one myself!! Again welcome back!

    I enjoyed looking at your page. You have some great thoughts and beautiful pictures. emoticon
    I clicked on your page because of the "missing Mom" concept. It is almost a year since my Mom passed away. emoticon
    The things I seem to miss most about her are the conversations, the unconditional acceptance, and the fact that I could drop in on her anytime. This is often not possible even with good friends as the world has gotten so busy. emoticon
    Have a great day. I'd better get back to work. emoticon
