I was working out with a trainer at least three times a week.When we had to leave Michigan, I lost the ability to work with him, but I am still following his diet and exercise plans. There is a great pool where I live, and it is crowded with bikini body beauties. I still don't like how I look when they're there. But I am getting it all back! By this summer, I'll be back in shape! I'll post a picture when I'm proud of it, and when I can figure out how to do that right. So far, all I'm getting is good pictures of my camera.

My Goals:
My first goal was to reach 114 pounds. DONE!!! In my first 4 months with Spark People, I lost 30 pounds. I can wear all my XS and size 4 clothing again. My goal is to maintain this weight or less for life and continue to tone up and grow stronger.

In April 2012, I reached 106 pounds - for a total weight loss of 28% of my former body weight!

MEMO TO ME: Check out all the Wedding Dress Workouts for specific toning exercises!

I am trying to lessen my tendency to worry: I read this on another Sparker's page and had to save it for motivation: "The root word for worry is from old English, WYRGAN, meaning to strangle. In other words, when we worry, we are killing our chances of happiness."

My Program:
Following my wonderful trainer's program, even though I cannot see him (He is in Michigan and I am back in Illinois.) I am still following the healthy eating plan he gave me and am working out at least 6 times a week (usually 7 times; varying the muscle groups worked.)

Personal Information:
Because of the extraordinary friendship and kindness of SparkFriends (especially Yatmama) I am learning to believe again and have stopped fearing asking God for help. I know I can't do this, and deal with all of my life's stresses, alone.

Romans 3:6 ...How else would things ever get straightened out if God didn't do the straightening?

Romans 3:24 God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity He put us in right standing with Himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we're in and restored us to where He always wanted us to be and He did it by means of Jesus Christ. .

Other Information:
Praying God's Promise:
I need help, Lord, and you have promised to infuse me with your infinite power. Without divine assistance I cannot press on. With your help and strength, I can do whatever you ask of me. Givjavascript:void(0);e me a second wind. I look to you in trust because I know you are faithful.

�For I know the plans I have for you,� declares the LORD, �plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.� Jeremiah 29:11
