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 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, 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.

I am glad you like the Hourglass workout! It was the one workout I was able to actually follow all the way through. If I come across any other great workouts I will be sure to let you know. Have a great day!
