I have decided that the year 2010 is the year for me to get my act together - physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. I was considering weight loss surgery, but after realizing weight loss surgery is not "an easy way out", I decided to save my money and just do it! I know I can do this!!!!

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Member Since: 2/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose at least 100 pounds. My first mini-goal is to lose the muffin tops over my bra. I hate them!!!!

My Program:
1. Eliminate added salt from my diet.

2. Eliminate Pepsi from my diet.

3. Gradually add Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds to my daily activity as my health permits.

Personal Information:
I live in Georgia near the Georgia / Alabama state line. I am a Christian; I have been married to the same man since 1972; I have two grown daughters, two sons-in-law, and four grandchildren. Family is very important to me. I LOVE Southern Gospel music and I enjoy scrapbooking and cardmaking.

Other Information:
“What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It's never too late to try.
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people
if you make that break for freedom.
What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Still so many answers I don't know.
Realize that to question is how we grow.
So I step out of the ordinary.
I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way.
Can't stop me now.
And you can do the same.

We need a change.
Do it today.
I can feel my spirit rising.
We need a change.
So do it today.
'Cause I can see a clear horizon.

I look into the window of my mind -
reflections of the fears I know I've left behind.
I step out of the ordinary.
I can feel my soul ascending.
I am on my way.
Can't stop me now.
And you can do the same.”

    Thanks for the Goodie! I live in the panhandle of Florida (there's a reason we call it FLA - Freakin' Lower Alabama). BTW, sparker JAKEANDNELLIE is a huge Southern Gospel music fan. I've been at a plateau for about 6 years now so to finally budge off that is such a relief to me! I feel like I'm on a roll!

    Thanks for the morning chuckle as well. I can relate to your swimsuit cartoon!

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
