Okay here is where it starts......I have been busy raising two beautiful daughters. The youngest is heading to college and I have decided it is my turn now. No more eating at consession stands, taking in mindless calories and fat grams. On July 23, 2008 I signed on because the cute little capris I was wearing that day were being closed with the aid of a rubber band at the waist. It was a little trick I used to get back into clothes after giving birth. Well that is simply not acceptable. The really shocking discovery is when I entered my weight and height I thought I had about 20 pounds to lose. However the spark gods soon told me that I was in denial and automatically placed me at 35 pounds to lose. That is a big fat reality check. I am ready to take responsibility and on my way to the goal. I really think the nutrition tracking for me is crutial because of the accountability factor. I wish all of you continued success on your current and future goals. Please leave a comment and I will try to reply.


Update 6/11/09

Well today I wore the little black capris to work and they zipped all the way to the top and buttoned without cutting into my waist. I was pleased with myself however I know that I have more to go. I have committed to a challenge that was bigger than I really wanted but I am up for it. I will try to win the pink bikini contest despite all the comfort foods currently in my house due to the college chicklets coming home.
