I started seriously changing my lifestyle in Jan. 2010. Did real well with staying within calorie range and lost 27 pounds in just 5 months. Then summer happened, then budget cuts, more stress at work...and I stalled out on my momentum and motivation.
Library expansion back injury ( summer 2012) put a screeching halt to my exercise program and I plummeted into bad eating choices and lost my "want to".
It's now July 2017. I will regain my strength. I will recharge my healthy momentum. I will overcome the challenges of physical mobility limitations and be victorious.


I'm looking forward to achieving results one small change at a time.

    Happy Resurrection Sunday! I love the flowers, they are gorgeous. Thanks for the encouragement. I do see changes in my self though. I can actually do real push-ups now, I've lost inches, and of course I feel so much better. So, overall I do try to focus on those things, but I had been at 147.4 for the last 3 weeks, and then yesterday I was 148.5. Every week I get on the scale hoping that I will have broken through the plateau, so to see it actually go up was hard to deal with. I'm debating on just swearing off the scale for awhile, because I don't want to obsess over it, and I don't want to get discouraged and give up. Getting over this hurdle will be a major accomplishment for me because ever time I've tried to lose weight, I get stuck around this same weight.

    Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. I'm NOT giving up this time :) PROMISE

    I sent a link to you via Spark Mail. The information is really detailed and long, so if you're bored, you can scroll all the way past the history and look specifically into the significance of the name "Easter" as well as the significance of the traditional eggs. I don't look at people funny who still call it Easter, or who do the bunny and egg thing, but now that I'm aware, I just don't. After you read that info, you'll know why you got the WIDE EYES at CC!!

    *** I must preface this post by letting you know that I'm a dork, and I posted this on MY page instead of YOURS a couple days ago!! LOL***

    Lol, I've gotten in the habit of calling it Resurrection Sunday after I learned about the history behind the title "Easter." I'm not trying to be overly spiritual, but I've just gotten in the habit of calling it that!

    It's great that you're in the choir. I love to sing myself, so I totally understand what you mean about loving praise and worship! Anyway, sing your heart out for Jesus and enjoy the family, fun, and food.
