I will not be like a Helicopter Hovering and getting nowhere, SO I am ready to take off!!

I will not be like a Helicopter Hovering and getting nowhere, SO I am ready to take off!!

I have reset my teams in random order, These are my favorites,
1.) BLC, 2.) Orchid Oasis Pool Team, 3.) Challengers of Hogwarts, 4.)QuickFire Challenge, 5.)Hula-Hoop All-Stars, 6.)Urban Rebounding!! Lets Bounce!! and 7.) General Hospital!!

But I am willing to try, try, again and if you don't succeed try again!! I once had this on a shirt!! Wonder where that shirt went.

I have met so many wonderful friends on this journey!! Who have lost more weight than I!! And I am jealous!

Ok enough about everyone else this was supposed to be about me!
So here goes, I joined sparkpeople many years ago, my name was Babbadean, and for some unknown Stupid reason I canceled and started over again... OH well

I was a thin kid never overweight till I was like 17 I think I stopped growing and grew the other way, then I joined the AF right out of HS, met my wonderful DH got married, our first bundle of Joy, J.P. A Boy, was born 9 months and 9 days later, that is when I got thin again, I only gained 15 and 1/2 pounds and I even fit into my old clothes to go, home, lost 9 first trimester!! Not FUN!!

Then 2 and 1/2 yeas later our next 2 bundles of joy came, Christopher and Joshua ,so yes I am a MOM of 3 Sons LOL, I gained 32 and a 1/2 pounds but my first trimester I lost 11 pounds which put me at 116 pounds, though I could not fit into my clothes on the way home it did not take me long... I was thin until I hit about 42 when I stopped waitressing, got to the point where I really hated people, and that is not good when waiting tables!! So now fast forward 13 years I am now 50 pounds heavier!!

Though I have done numerous rounds of the BLC and Lost each time... I will do it again!! And with the help of My Orchid Oasis Pool Team, and other Hogwarts students I WILL DO THIS, and of Course my HOT MOCHA MANIAC Teammates!!

So Here I go again STARTING ANEW!! I know ya'll are tired of me saying that as I am tired of saying it...
thanx for reading wish me luck!!


So here is what I am going to do!!
1) 10 Minutes of Hula -Hooping
2) 10 minutes of my Rebounder
3) Drink 64 Oz. of water!
4) 10 Minutes of a Spark Video

Hi Barbara,

~~~REALITY of FEAR ~~~

You're not scared of the dark,
~ You're scared of what's in it.~
You're not afraid of heights,
~ You're afraid of falling ~
You're not afraid of the people around you,
~ You're just afraid of rejection ~
You're not afraid of love,
~ You're afraid of not being loved back ~
You're not afraid to let go,
~You're just afraid to accept the reality that their gone ~
You're not afraid to try again,
~ You're just afraid of getting hurt for the same reason ~

Do WE all FEAR this in OUR LIFETIME?

~~~HAVE a WONDERFUL WEEKEND~~~
Barb emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
