Woo Hoo! One Day in a Row!!!!!

And here's the proof:

For the past year I have NOT been in a fitness/healthy living state of mind. I have been slugging away at these online classes, working full time and carting kids here and there...as a result, I have gone up 2 clothing sizes and have watched my body get flabbier and flabbier. I have been thinking about exercising and eatting better, but needed the one last "push". Today, at church, I got that push. The nursing ministry has started a weight loss support group is is encouraging members to join and be healthier in 2008. One of the websites that the nurse recommended was www.sparkpeople.com. I know several people who had great success with this program, so I decided to give it a visit. I signed up (it's totally free), put in my goal weight and they help you come up with a fitness and eating plan that will help reach your goals. There are also support groups and you earn points by completing different tasks each day. It's way to hold yourself accountable...plus it's fun!

I'm going to give it a try and see what happens...it definitely can't hurt!

This is the website that I use! I have lost just over 50 pounds--well, that & a couple of surgeries. Seriously, I have found it to be easy & it has REALLY worked for me. I am down 4 sizes! Only about 50 more to go. I have been doing it for about a year now. i fell off the wagon since about July, but I have maintained it and not gained back what I had lost. There are a few of us on as a team--let me know if your interested. You don't see each others info, but you can go and encourage each other!

Love you!
