I would love to meet some people on here with similar goals... I can be a great encourager, and I need some encouragement myself at times. Remember to share your goals with God... He'll be your best encouragement yet.
I have been so abundantly blessed with the opportunity to complete my masters (MSW), earn a promotion which included moving to a new town I am loving, my kiddos love their new schools, 2 off to on a full scholarship. Recently, I met an incredible man whom I am falling completely in love with. He has also overcome a tremendous weight problem. I am helping him with the nutrition aspect and he is encouraging me to exercise more and properly.
My goal is to weigh 145 or less by my 40th birthday. I am currently 202.4 lbs. My healthy weight range would be between 138-158 lbs.
I am doing the following:
~100 oz distilled/or purified water daily
~"Raw till 4" see Freelee aka bananagirl or for more info
~vegan (mostly raw; 80/10/10)
~squats and crunches everyday
~training for my first 5k with my sweetie
~no processed foods
~whole foods with the exception of my alternative milks (almond, coconut, hemp, rice, etc.)

    I've been meaning to tell you that I REALLY like the Oh no you didnt picture..Everytime I look at your sparkpage it makes me laugh. As for the water aerobics that sounds like a great idea but I cant believe im going to admit this but I cant one of my goals after I gain some more muscle and lose some more weight..I have heard that if you drink cold water your body burns cals warming it I guess it would make since it would do the same if it was all around you. Anyway, I'm off to church! I hope that you will have a blessed day!
