Wow!! Ain't No Stopping Us!

I'm just sitting here with my kids thinking about the "me" 10 months ago and looking at the pictorial differences and all I can say is Wow!!  God is so awesome.  I am 72 pounds healthier.  I have made many changes on the outside as well as the inside.  Speaking with a friend today made me realize how much I missed journaling.  It's so great to be able to go back and look at posts from my journey's beginning.  I still have some of those same struggles as before but everyday I am provided with brand new mercies...Thank You Father God!!  I am going thru some major issues right now and I know my God will see me thru...Please check out my before and after...still a work in progress.  There ain't no turning back now!!  Hope to see you soon!!  PS....I am soooo excited because both of my sisters have joined me!!  They are fighting this Obesity monster as well!!!!  Yeah!!!

I'm back, Again!

I post a lot to FB now, but I am going to have to get back into the habit of blogging...writing is therapy. Things have become stagnate. I am going to do a detox this weekend and take the exercises up a notch. Please check out my pic. OAN: We have snow in Mississippi!

I am Back and I Survived!!!

Hi all!! I hope I still have a few faithful follwers. I have my laptop back!! And I am overjoyed. Since the last time I blogged, Christmas and New Year's have passed and I survived!! Not saying that I didn't eat some of the things that I wanted, because I did in moderations. However, today is a dawn of a brand new day so back to the grindstone for me.
I am super excited because clinic started again Tuesday and I have maintained my weight during the 4 week break!! I saw a lot of new and eager faces and I feel proud of my accomplishments. I once stood in the shoes of the ladies who are just starting this journey and I am still toiling. Ladies, we can do this together, one pound at a time!
Another great-Fitness Clinic will be opening a new location in my hometown soon!!
Until later,

Tis the Season....

Hi all,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I ate, however Friday after Thanksgiving was the dawn of a brand new day. I really felt good because I did not over do it. It’s okay to eat like you want every now and then, just use a smaller plate, and no going back for seconds. I promise you will do okay.
As you embark on this holiday season, remember all that you have accomplished physically and asked the Lord to help you eat in moderations. As for me and my plans for the holiday: I plan not to eat any Christmas cakes, cookies, candies, pies, or any other forbidden goodies we may get in the office, however ; I do plan to eat and fellowship with my family on Christmas and back to the grindstone on the 26th. Please remember those that are less fortunate than you and make a conscience effort to make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Hopefully, Mr. Laptop Repairman, will have me up and running soon (please) because I am having the “Can’t Blog Blues” and “Internet Withdrawal Syndrome”. I will be back soon….

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi all,
My laptop is still not repaired..:(..hopefully, the next time I post it will be from behind the screen of my very own laptop.  I miss you all!  Thanks to my sister for being so kind to let me post.  I just wanted to stop by and wish all of you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! No counting calories for me.  I will eat sensible from a small plate with the foods of my choice. 

We will be at my dad's and I am looking so forward to spending time with my family...

I have so many reasons to be thankful ............

No Weapon....

The viewing party was AWESOME!! Special thanks to all the people who came out and shared in my moment. It truly meant the world to me. Thanks for the well wishes, watching the documentary and supporting my blog. Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for each of you. Everything was perfect in every way. Special thanks to my hometown folks!! You represented well!! Special thanks to Doris Sutton for pictures and Willie & Darlene Lee for video and support, you are the greatest!
Special thanks to my sister Daphne, for staying home with the kids to allow me time to watch the show at Dreamz. Thanks to ALL my family and friends who watch the show and sent texts of congratulations!! My laptop is still down and I cannot post to NING so for everyone who sent congrats that way thank you much!! I know that there are some on NING that do not follow the blog so if you reach my NING family before I do let them know that I am very appreciative of the love and support!!
And if I have forgotten any one, thanks to you too.
With all that said, today is the dawn of a brand new day, so it’s back to the basics for me. We weigh in this evening and I hope I am at least down by one. With all the excitement, I have not exercised since Thursday, shame on me. However, I did enough walking in the mall on Friday to constitute for that day at least. I have not been getting in enough water either but I have been eating correctly. So for all the bad I have done there was at least one good, lol. Speaking of bad, I have heard that there are a lot of negative comments on one of our local websites. However, I have made a personal choice not to read or partake in the comments. That’s life, I am prepared and to those of you who are making negative comments remember you can’t experience VICTORY while you’re talking DEFEAT. Before the documentary aired I knew that for all the positive things there also will be the negatives. So by all means express yourself, it’s your right. God covers me! Check out my picture!!

The Viewing Party

Tuesday’s weigh in…….I lost 2 more pounds!! Yeah!! By the way, we are having a viewing party at Dreamz on Sunday. For all of my friends at the Fitness Clinic, aren’t you excited about the viewing party?? This weight loss makes me look so forward to it!! I saw me, on national TV last night!! And this just generates more excitement within me. Tomorrow I am going to go shop for a dress. I am just last minute when it comes to shopping for clothes, period! And for the first time in my life, I will ride in a limo and the occasion will not be a sad one. I am 27lbs less than I was Sept. 14th and it shows, baby!!
This experience is such a humbling one. I just cannot thank God enough because it’s thru his divine intervention and powers that he has decided to use me as a vessel and put me on the hearts and minds of so many other people that are trying to obtain the same common goal. When you are thanking him for his many blessings he’s bestowed upon you, make sure you thank him again for me.
For those of you that really know what I have been thru since October 7, 2005, can attest to the ALMIGHTY “working” powers of God on high! I have come thru too much not to worship him! If you are going thru a struggle, my advice to you would be to always remain positive, surround yourself with positive people and join some kind of support group. Negative thoughts and actions drain your spirit! And what would you be without a spirit?? Tell’em science gurus – you would be Matter. Matter is objects that take up space and have mass. Now you can thank my 5th grade science teacher for that science tidbit for today.
I look forward to seeing all of you that will be there on Sunday night with me and if you will not, please tune in and watch on BET, 9pm CST. To all who are reading, I LOVE each and every one of you!! Thanks for stopping by…Today, let someone know that you care!
