It's hard to believe that I'm almost to my goal. Including weight lost before joining SP, I'm over 90 lbs. down, 25 more lbs. to go! Not sure when I'll get there...but I will get there! I will probably never have washboard abs and I will always bear the consequences of being over 100 lbs. overweight, but I'm doing it and I'm not looking back! I choose to love my body, just the way it is, right now--battle scars and all.

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. ...

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. Will resume battle after we have this little one!

Personal Information:
In January of 2012, I got to a point that I could no longer neglect my health. I was at my heaviest weight ever and was heading for a milestone that I never thought that I would get to--300 lbs.

I went to the Internet, searched for a 5K and signed up. In 2012, I did 3 - 5K's and 1 - 10K and lost 45 lbs.

After my last race, I started back with my old habits and gained about 15 lbs. back.

I've now started SparkPeople and have short, medium and long term goals to help keep me motivated.

"Sweat and tears are healing waters." Abby, Season 8 of Biggest Loser

"Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a u-turn and head back in the right direction."

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
Barb

~~~~The Five "W"'s of Life~~~~

WHO you are is what makes you special.
Do not change for anyone.

WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery.
Do not be afraid to explore.

WHEN life pushes you over,
you push back harder.

WHERE there are choices to make,
make the one you won't regret.

WHY things happen will never be certain.
Take it in stride and move forward.

These 5 "W"'s are
A Wonderful Way to Wake-up on Wednesday!!!
Enjoy the day!!
