Update as of 12/13/14: 20 lbs down, and I need to get back in the spark of things. It's been a tough year and a half for me emotionally, and it will get even stranger as the "nest" gets closer to being empty. I was born to be a mom and wife, well the mom part has to change to grow with the children...who aren't children anymore and do not need me like they did all these years.

=====================================
Oct 2013: 30 lbs down, now and maintaining. I need to get at least 20 more pounds off this body and I know that I can do it. It took me 4 years to get the 30 off, but I don't want to wait another 3.4 years to get the next 20 off.

Starting is one thing, but keeping on the focus towards the goal is another, but I get the drift!! I'm doing it now and feeling, looking, and getting better all the time!

If you are interested in sparking me along, that would be great, I would appreciate it.

THanks!

GM! Glad you liked the post. When I was discouraged with my mothering when the kids were small, there was a friend that always tried to make me understand this thought. I think of her often...and her name just happens to be Beth. And my kids turned out to be wonderful caring adults...in spite of me. lol emoticon And, thanks for the Target Goodie! I try! emoticon
