Still Fighting!

I had already lost 55 pounds on my own when I started using SparkPeople and have now lost more than 90 pounds! My ultimate goal is 110 pounds weight loss.

I exercise 6-7 days a week for at least an hour. I swim, do Zumba/ClubDance, do cardio, lift weights, run slowly and walk outdoors. I dance whenever possible and love authentic Latin dance.

I have several major health challenges, including five different metabolic diseases...if I can do it, anybody can!

You are right, I have been eating fast food and junk food every day lately. The combination of not planning ahead and not being nearly motivated enough is kicking my butt. And you are also right about not bringing it into the house.

I am hoping there will be no restaurant meals, fast food or otherwise, of any kind, consumed until a week from tomorrow. That would help a LOT.

Thanks for the comments, you are absolutely right!

Oh my goodness, I am sure that is scary to have a loved one in a dangerous job! Keep praying for him!

Are you planning any trips this summer or upcoming yea? Since I just had a baby, I am not going to travel until maybe next year.

Keep up the great work!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
