I have lost 60 pounds...twice. And gained it all back twice. So I'm starting over again. I really need a lot of support. I have had a rough time trying to lose the weight again after gall bladder surgery 3 years ago. Hopefully this time I can lose it and keep it off.

My Goals:
I am starting over again. I reached my goal of 50 pounds by may. That was in 2012. I gained it all back the last two years of grad school. I graduate again in may and I am going for 40 pounds by then.

My Program:
I am making healthy food choices. Watching my calories and portions by using the Nutrition Tracker. I am also going to the Y almost every day. I work out at the gym almost everyday. I have stopped eating in front of the tv and computer and I do stretching exercises while I am watching tv. I also am praying and believing by faith for my success. God's plan is for me to be a success. Jeremiah 29:11. It is His plan for all who follow Him to be in good health in mind and body. By faith I accept this promise and am taking steps in my life to see it come to fulfillment. Without Christ, I can do nothing. With Him, I can do all things!

Personal Information:
My name is Roberta Heath. I am a writer, a singer, a wife and a mom. I am finished with my first book and it is being published. It's called "Binding Up the Broken" and it's about helping people learn how to allow God to heal their emotional and spiritual wounds. It will be coming out this year!

Other Information:

"I will run the race set before me. I will seek Your face as the prize of my life. I will run."-Misty Edwards, "I Will Run"

my favorite movie is August Rush. My favorite authors are Francis Chan, C.S. Lewis, and Ted Dekker. I love Christian worship bands and rock bands. Most any kind of Gospel music is my fave. Although I don't really care a whole lot about southern gospel I do like the Crabb Family.

    Sorry, I accidentally hit post. Ok, I saw your name and wondered if it is your whole name. That is my sister's name and I have never seen anyone else with that name. She also lost 60 pounds last year and is having a hard time keeping it off.

    I would love to give you a Team Spark Goodie but you have not posted on the Conservative Christian Women team for over thirty days.

    Hope you are doing well.

    Roberta I miss you too! Seems at times I am being swept along by a huge tidal wave of busy-ness that I can't seem to escape. Tonight was the first time back at the Y in at least a month? Anyhow, thought of you and thats why I sent the text. Sort of multi-tasking. Spend time with friend (yes). Exercise? Okay, best when friend is there... Sorry we missed each other. You seem to be able to go earlier in the evening than I am. I can't seem to get away until late.... Frustrating but it is what it is... I plan to catch any time I can get... I called the Y yesterday hoping to go swim and the pool was tied up from 2pm to 8pm. Was in a meeting until after 9pm. Just wasn't happening... Hope you are doing well and BRAVO for staying on the journey even after winning second in The Biggest Loser contest at your work!
