Like some members of SparkPeople, I am a returning user. I know the drill and I know it works. Further on down this page is my testimony... 22 inches is a great loss, only if it stays off, right? I hope you will follow my journey as I make my second attempt at a life change.

MY ADVICE: Stay positive and try your best. Never look back with regret about anything... keep looking to your goals.

If we wait for the moment when everything......
absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin--

UPDATE: May 4, 2009
I am still a 44 year old single mom. I have made wonderful changes in the last 9 months while on SparkPeople. Now I do alot for myself and for my family. I make the time to make a difference in my life. I have lost 26 pounds and 14 1/2 inches. All with diet and exercise. I am registered for the 5K and I am training to be a runner.

NEW MEMBER: July 2008
Hi, I am a 44 year old single mom. I do alot for my family, but little for myself. My goal is to start doing good things for myself. Another one of my goals is to be able to participate in a 5K run next summer.

    Thank you for stopping by my page and for the encouragement. How is you progress going? I did not weigh for a month (by choice) and I lost only four pounds. But I was ok with it. That's about a pound a week. Everyday was far from perfect but there must have been more good than bad!

    I'm calling out on the Sparkosphere for you and I hear an echo! Where are you!?

    I hope you had a great holiday weekend. Today starts the new month, so lets start fresh and leave the past behind us. We can and will do this. You are such a strong woman and I know you will do this. Stay strong and keep your eye on the prize!!
    BTW I love the new page, but hope all of the blue doesn't indicate how you are feeling.
