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
5) Jump Rope every other Day

emoticon Laugh as much when you breathe, and love as long as you live.

emoticon Laughter is always the best medicine unless.....
you have diarrhea.

emoticon Laugh until your belly hurts and then just a bit more.

emoticon Sometimes I laugh so hard, my tears run down my leg.

..........."Lets Take a Moment to Be Thankful""..........

For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed.
And for every mean word withheld when we fought,

We can only see what's in front of us,
And can be thankful for what we've got,

But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember,
To always be thankful,
For every "never", "didn't", and "not".....
