September 2020 - 50 lbs gone. I made my goal! IF works for me! Adjustment #3 - lose ten more.

July 2020. 30 pounds less! Look at my photo for before and after. Chubby cheeks - gone! Wrote a blog of how this came to be. I’m a happy lady.

June 2020. I am down 20 pounds and feel great! Researching diet study evidence by Dr. Jason Fung is sure an eye opener. Carbs, not fat, is what has caused the obesity epidemic. Diabetics taking insulin gain weight! Who knew! They don't tell you that. I am avoiding a family history of diabetes by taking charge now, reducing carbs to between 30-40%, not 50%. I don't need to do extreme KETO as my body can handle carbs, for now.

May 2020. I took a break from SP, gained weight, stopped regularly exercising and deleted all my posts, pictures, SP teams and more. So many things to regret! Now a month back in, ten pounds off my body, and improved fitness and health. Thank you willpower and SP.

April 2020 - back at square one. Never give up!

I'm reclaiming my life - in more ways than one. I'm establishing new goals, experiences and friendships. It is time for me to be happy. I now know that I am in control of MY destiny and it is up to me to shape it the way I want. Let the journey begin!

    emoticon Although the wings of a butterfly is delicate, they are strong fliers! Their beautiful wings can fly as far as 3,000 miles, soar as high as 11,000 feet. That is higher than some emoticon . The Skipper can 37 mph! The Blackfeet of North America believe that Butterflies bring on emoticon and dreams. The spirit of the butterfly was often in the mythology because of its metamorphosis. They were a symbol of rebirth, regeneration, joy and happiness. The Beautiful Amethyst Butterflies are strong like the Butterflies we named the team for!
    Be strong butterflies, soar high and far! But stay warm this Frosted Fitness Fun Challenges as Butterflies need to be warm to fly! Come to the Meadow emoticon and Share the strength and warmth the team emanates!
