NO EXCUSES!

Well, It's been almost two years and I finally hit my goal on New Years Eve 2009. It's great to be able to fit in those old clothes. My oldest daughter brought me a pair of size 10 jeans and I didn't think I would ever be able to fit in them, but the day I hit my goal they fit. Plus my Pastor's wife brought me size 8 dresses and surprisingly they fit, too! I haven't been able to wear these sizes since High School, and Lord knows that's been awhile! It's a dream come true! One I would have ...
Well, It's been almost two years and I finally hit my goal on New Years Eve 2009. It's great to be able to fit in those old clothes. My oldest daughter brought me a pair of size 10 jeans and I didn't think I would ever be able to fit in them, but the day I hit my goal they fit. Plus my Pastor's wife brought me size 8 dresses and surprisingly they fit, too! I haven't been able to wear these sizes since High School, and Lord knows that's been awhile! It's a dream come true! One I would have never accomplished without Sparkpeople.com, the support of the people here, and my family and friends cheering me on!!! It's taken a little longer than my original goal, but, I've had a lot of obstacles to overcome.

I have struggled with my weight ever since the birth of my first child. I guess as you get older you tend to be less active. I believe this played a big part in my weight roller coaster, the less active part that is. Also my Father was Italian and eating is a social affair. I use to be able to eat for hours and not gain a pound. My friend use to be so jealous, but low and behold it finally caught up to me. Anyway I still seem to struggle staying on a regular exercise program, but I believe I will eventually overcome that too. I really don't mind exercise, but there never seems to be enogh hours in a day for everything.

I'm very thankful that a sales rep from another company told me about Sparkpeople.com. It really is an awesome program. I sent it to my Pastor's wife and she joined just recently. We were talking about it the other day about how it is a lifestyle change and not a diet. Today someone else at church approached us about the weight loss and Jos said, "It gives you perimeters and you have to stay within them!" Wow that was simple, but true. I think this applies to anything in life. Although it's up to all of us to carry out our own plan, and stay within our perimeters. Only I can be accountable for myself. And most of all stop making excuses!

Well, I'm excited about reacing my big goal. My oldest daughter has joined also. She's done an awesome job before she started Sparks, but wants to lose more weight. My husband has lost 22 lbs, just by me cooking differently. My youngest has also dropped a few lbs also. We're all doing it!

Funny, I don't have much chance to go back to places now, unless they're really favorites of ours! I doubt we'll go back to RJs, actually.

At Peachland, she's a little far away to be a walking buddy, but thanks for mentioning her! A lot more people are walking in my neighborhood now.

Bill is being a remarkably good patient, bless his heart. He even hid his own cigarettes from himself, to aid in the healing.
