I have been on Sparks People since 2006. In 2007 I lost 50lbs. For the first time I was under 200 lbs. It felt Great! It was short lived..since then I have gained it all back. I have started and stopped so many times that I pretty much gave up.

I am done with giving up! I am ready to drop this weight. My overall goal is to be at 130lbs. I am 230.4 as of today. For each 3 months I am going to set a new goal.

3 month goal: 25 lbs
Weight: 205.4
Reward:

6 month goal: 25 lbs
Weight: 180.4
Reward:

9 month goal: 25 lbs
Weight: 155.4
Reward:

12 month goal:
Weight: 130.4
Reward:


Achieving My Goals:

1. Drinking WATER Daily - 230/2 =115oz =14 - 8oz glasses of water per day (this will change for every 10 lbs I lose)

2. EXERCISE Daily (Walking on the treadmill, Leslie Sansone's DVD's, using my Wii Fit and doing strength training 2x a week)

3. EATING Healthy (keeping track of my calories, sodium, carbs and sugar intake daily)

4. PRAYING for guidance and strength everyday

5. NOT GIVING UP!

    Hello Kris! This looks like your second intro of the day for the April Fools Challenge. You look like you're doing an excellent job so far on your program. I love the quotes on your page. I've been on Spark for two weeks now, but I've been on my journey since January 29th. I look forward to watching your progress during the challenge. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Kris,
    I'm in your April Challenge group and I thought I would drop in a see your spark page - you have an ambitious program mapped out for yourself, and by the look of your ticker it sure seems to be working well for you. I love the scenic photo you've used as wallpaper on your page. Is it near your home?
    Good luck with this challenge!

    Hi Kris! I talked with my fiance last night after I read your comment. And Even though he is a member of spark (librammummert) he doesn't believe that the emotional support will help him as much as the physical work. But I explained to him that I was afraid that if he didn't start looking after himself that I would be a widow before our kids are teenagers... and believe it or not he understood!
    But thanks for the encouragement! I know I have a long way to go but I'm taking baby steps :)

    Hi Kris.
    I am a part of the challenge. My name is Sharlene aka Sharbean. I am a mother of 3 boys Branden (14) Tyson (11) and Matthew (9). I have been married for 14 years to a wonderful and supportive man. We like to camp, hike, fish and just have fun together. I want to lose weight so I can be more of a part of this instead of sitting on the sidelines so often.

    Good luck in the challenge!
