Update Fall 2014 - My 4th 5% Challenge! I am excited! I haven't lost any more weight since Spring, but I have maintained my weight within 2-3 pounds, so that is an accomplishment! I do want to lose another 5 pounds or so during the next few months (By Christmas). My goal for the Fall 5% challenge is to get to 112 pounds. I also want to build more lean muscle so I can burn more calories. My nutrition plan is going well and my fitness plan is good, I just need to put in more minutes!!

Update June 2014-
I am starting my 3rd 5% weight loss challenge. During the Spring Challenge, I lost all the weight I planned to lose! Unfortunately, I only stayed at that weight for one week (hubby's vacation started the day the challenge ended). UGH!! But at least I know I can get there! And I WILL get there again (and try hard to stay there) during the Summer Challenge! One book that I think helped in my loss was "Beck Diet Solution". I stopped half way thru the book so I can finish it (and be inspired) for the Summer Challenge. I also have some non-weight loss goals that I will work on this Summer (financial, household, home school).


Update April 2014 - I did my first 5% Challenge this Winter. I got to within 1 pound of my original goal & 3 pounds of my "official" goal! Now I am back, helping lead the GREAT team of Clover Leafs! I also read the book "Made to Crave" over the winter & it was a major stepping stone to my weight loss/fitness/wellness success! I highly recommend the book to everyone!

Update Jan 2014 - This is my 2nd time on Spark People. I got down to about 120-ish last time (2008-2009). Then I got sick with Lyme disease & a parasite disease called babeosis. After that, I had sinus surgery, and stomach issues from the medicine I took for the Lyme disease & sinus issues. I got back up to my current heaviest (135) and stayed there for awhile.
Now I'm back again & plan to get to a lower number this time & STAY THERE!! I would love to get close to my wedding weight (100 pounds), but will be super happy staying in the one-teens.

SOME TUESDAY TRUTH

Grab A Plate & Throw It To The Ground.

Done.

Did It Break?

Yes!

Now, Say 'Sorry' To It.

Sorry!

Did It Go Back To The Way It Was Before?

No.

Now, Do You Understand?


Sweetheart,

Words can either build someone up or bury them alive. Choose to be kind, always. When we choose to judge or put others down, it tells more about our own character than it ever could say about theirs. Small people resort to such bitter forms of hate while truly great people will only lift you higher to help you to discover the value & potential you may not see yourself. Show respect & kindness to all, even those who don't deserve it because having good character & a beautiful heart will never go out of style!!!

Stay Fabulous,

Jes
