    I’d like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. I know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! Can’t do it! But I am here to tell u I did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 I got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs. to gain it all back, but I’m back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. If u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. I lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure I never went over. I barely exercised ...I am handicapped and I can’t do exercises in the conventional way but I flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. I did very minimal stuff. The idea was to keep moving and I did that. So I know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. So I invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!

    cut and paste link below if it doest work, please hit me up and I will email you ling.

    Please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

    Sleep went MUCH better the last couple of nights, thankfully! I think it was the time change that got me all messed up.

    And yes! My husband runs full out marathons. I don't know how anyone can do that! I can't even jog for short periods of time! I feel like I'm dying! LOL. I used to think it was because I smoked, but I've tried since I quit and and I haven't gotten any better at it! Haha!

    Katie, Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I think what makes me so sad is that I let myself get that big. I guess I never realized how big I was getting. Or I just didn't care at the time. I stayed depressed a lot back then so I guess that had a ton to do with the weight packing on.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog post. It did feel nice to see that loss when I got on the scale Saturday morning. My work schedule was set for the month of March, allowing me to get into a routine, at least for this month! But I found out this afternoon that today was my last day in that classroom because the girl that I was assigned to work with has left the school and been put on independent study.

    This sucks for me because it disrupts my routine and takes away from my paycheck. And it sucks for the other staff and the students in the class room because although on paper I was assigned to that particular girl, another staff member had been working with her all year so I was working with the other 9 students and making some advances with several of them.
