Taralee,

You are doing great! What a wonderful feeling it is to take charge of your life. From the photo you have posted, we can see that you have a very good (and cute!) motivation for getting and staying healthy. Keep that baby in mind when you are tempted...you definitely want to be around a long time and have the energy to be a terrific Mom.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Taralee!

You are so brave! I am so proud of you and you should be proud of yourself too. With God's help you can do anything you put your mind too!

Good Job!

Thank you so much for all your encouragement! I have to say...I couldn't do it without the support of my good friends, family and the the great people here at SP. I love this site more and more everyday. Not just for loosing weight, but for setting and meeting goals, which are beneficial for changing my life.
I thank God that I stumbled upon this wonderful site almost a year ago.
Thank you so much.

HI!! I just had to say how excited I was that on top of loosing 7lbs. so far, being able to walk and excercize for 60 minutes a day, medications leveling out and feeling great....I haven't had a cigarette in 3 days!!! I am determined to QUIT once and for all. It is difficult when I am in the car. That seems to be when I want one the most, but I carry a bottle of water and I just drink the heck out of that.
Thanks for all the wonderful support.
I have to get healthy not only for myself, but for my kids!
God Bless
WOO HOO!!!!!
