New Year NEW ME! That is my goal! I NEED to lose at least 20 lbs in a relatively short amount of time! I have lost 26 lbs so far only 20 more to go! I have a Special goal in mind for this year. I need to lose the weight for a major surgery. God willing I will be able to have the surgery by March! It means the world to me and I am going to fight as hard as I can to get there. This surgery would untie my tubes so that I can once again concieve children. Currently I am a VERY busy mother and student. I have 3 Boys myself and 2 step daughters that do not live with us full time. You would think that I would be happy with the five I have...and I AM, yet my husband and I have no children together and it is something we have always wanted. So this is where we are and what we have decided! I am very excited and can hardly wait! I have family members also on SP so to them I have to ask that they keep this hush...hush.. for now we are not telling everyone yet. I really could use the encouragement and support from everyone! I hope that I can find it here. I will be starting a full semester of college in the spring and working hard to get into a nursing program so that I can get my RN. So I have my hands full and will be continue to be busy...but not too busy to care for my body! Any support is WELCOME!! I will try to reciprocate! So this is me! GOOD LUCK TO ALL! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! AND LET THE LOSING BEGIN!!

    Hi Markita,
    I was going down memory lane reading my blogs and ran into you. Just wanted to say "hi". We miss you in the M&M's but I understand that we all need to cut back on our commitments.

    I'm struggling with a plateau. Having trouble breaking into the 150's. Its the most frustrating one yet. Mainly due to my lack of desire to do my part to eat right etc. I'm trying hard not to give up and to keep doing what I can.

    God Bless!

    Well hello there stranger!!! I have finally just got settled (if that can ever really be true) in my new home that God has blessed me with. I am so excited I don't know what to do with all the space. It is so nice to have a place for everything and still have room to move. I have not been around much since November, thank God for Shelia, she has held the team together for me. I think we just decided to tone it down a bit for the holiday's. Everyone had so much going on. But as of January 1st we start our Losing weight in 2008 challenge. And everyone gets to post challenges not just the team leaders so I think it will be interresting. I hate to say I have not lost much of anything since the move. I did alot of convience eating which totally sucked cause I could have really lost some weight, while we were doing home improvements. Instead I just maintianed cause I was eating very bad but working it all off. The thought of what I could have done if I were eating right things makes me sick. but I am starting over and all the bad eating is staying in 2007. I am so excited to see you are down to like 28% body fat. How do you find out what your % of body fat is. I would like to know what mine is. I am glad to hear from you, I thought you were mad with me cause you left so suddendly. Well I must go I sure hope this makes it to ya. I have dial up now and it is driving me crazy so slow or it loses what you are doing. I don't have any choice out here in the sticks, but I am going to start looking into other alturnatives cause this drives me crazy!!! Hope to talk to ya soon, Beki
