I am on the Magnolia Angels support team in the Pound-A-Thon Challenge. My goal is to lose a total of 7.5 pounds by Labor Day. So far, I am down 3.5 pounds. I am impatient and really wish that the weight would just melt off at warped speed, but since that isn't happening, I am happy to slowly see the weight coming off and make some wonderful friends along the way!

I love the Ruby Lite challenges because of the phenomenal amount of support found here. No where else on Spark have I found the amount of "Spark Love" that I have here! This is a HUGE bonus for me because I do not have much support at home. My well-meaning family tells me that they love me just the way that I am, but that is not the encouragement that I need. I want and need encouragement to be my best, to work a little harder, to push a little more. I want to be a healthier, happier role model for my daughters and not settle for staying "just the way I am"! I love all of the inspiring messages and blogs that I read here on Spark.
I look forward to sharing my successes and feel comforted when I admit my short-comings to my fellow Ruby Lites.

And as we draw closer and closer to the end of this challenge, I already find myself excited to know that there will be another challenge beginning when this one ends! Thank you my Ruby Lite family for joining me on this journey to better health!

    You are doing great. You never want to lose it too fast or it won't stay off. So you are doing it the right way. Glad you are getting the encouragement that you need on this team. Ruby Lites are the best!!
