January 2015 - I'm looking forward to the New Year! I am trying to get back on track & back into a losing mode!

Update Nov 2014 - I've decided to go to maintenance mode. I have been at the same weight now for 6 months!! I am excited & proud about that, really I am. I just wish it was a lower number (don't we all). But this Nov we have 2 surgeries scheduled (son's tonsils on the 10th & hubby's hernia on the 26th) & I do not see how I can stress about trying to lose more weight. For ...

Update Nov 2014 - I've decided to go to maintenance mode. I have been at the same weight now for 6 months!! I am excited & proud about that, really I am. I just wish it was a lower number (don't we all). But this Nov we have 2 surgeries scheduled (son's tonsils on the 10th & hubby's hernia on the 26th) & I do not see how I can stress about trying to lose more weight. For the rest of this year, I plan to stick with my basic nutritional goals & 30-60 min of fitness each day. I plan to get back on the "losing" bandwagon after Jan 1st.

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.

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes
