THE LAST COUPLE DAYS HAVE BEEN SO GREAT FOR ME. I HAVE BEEN DOING THINGS THAT I HAVE NOT DONE IN YEARS. I BEEN GETTING OUTSIDE DAILY WALKING AND/OR SITTING WITH MY QUEEN JUST ENJOYING THE FRESH AIR. I HAVE CAN MOVE AROUND WITH SUCH EASE. I AM WAKING UP PAIN FREE. I LOVE THE WAY I FEEL WHEN I GET UP NOT HAVING TO JUST LAY IN THE BED HATING TO GET UP. I LOVE THE WAY THAT IT FEELS BEING ABLE TO DO MORE FOR MYSELF. I HAVE BEEN WASHING MY OWN HAIR WEEKLY IN THE KITCHEN WITHOUT MY QUEEN AND SISTER HAVING TO DO IT FOR ME. I MOPPED MY BATHROOM FLOOR ONE DAY. IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE TO COME. I AM READY TO TAKE A SHOWER, GO SHOPPING FOR MYSELF, GET MANICURE AND PEDICURE AND GOING TO THE MOVIES. I HAVE BEEN DOING SO GREAT LATELY THAT I AM GETTING TOGETHER A FAMILY REUNION SO THAT HOPEFULLY I CAN BE THE ONE TO GET MY FAMILY BACK TOGETHER.
I AM NOW DOWN TO 143 LBS LESS THAN I WAS 23 WEEKS AGO. I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN AND I CAN GET AROUND BETTER THAN I EVER HAVE. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE TO COME. I HAVE 404 LBS TO GO BEFORE REACH MY LONG TERM GOAL. WHEN I STARTED THIS JOURNEY I WAS 747 LBS, I AM NOW 604 LBS. I AM ONLY 5 LBS FROM MEETING MY SUMMER GOAL OF REACHING MY SUMMER GOAL OF GETTING UNDER 600 LBS. I MUST SAY THAT MY QUEEN JANIE(MOM), LATISHA(SISTER), STEPHANIE(SISTER),SHUNTIA(NIECE), TAKIAS(NEPHEW), BRENDA(AUNT),HONEY(AUNT) AND LAQUINDA(AIDE)JUST TO NAME A FEW ARE THE PEOPLE THAT HELPS ME ON A DAILY BASIS IN SOME KIND OF WAY. I WILL NOT LEAVE OUT MY FACEBOOK FAMILY THAT SUPPORTS ME ON THIS JOURNEY. FACEBOOK HAVE A MEDIFAST PAGE THAT HAVE SO MUCH SUPPORT ON THEIR AND WE INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER ON THEIR BY SHARING OUR JOURNEYS. I HAVE MEET A LOT OF PEOPLE SINCE BEING ON THIS JOURNEY. I KNOW THAT IT HAS BEEN AWHILE SINCE I BEEN POSTING BUT I WILL DO MY BEST TO POST MORE.

YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!! I FEEL SO GOOD RIGHT NOW I CAN FEEL MYSELF TRANSFORMING. I HAVE BEEN CALLED A BUTTERFLY BY SO MANY PEOPLE THAT I LOOK AT MYSELF THAT WAS NOW ALSO. I DID MY RESEARCH ON THEM AND I MUST AGREE. I FEEL THAT THE STAGES THAT A CATERPILLAR GOES THOUGH TO BE A BUTTERFLY IS WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH TO LOSE THIS WEIGHT. I AM A CATERPILLAR AND MY WEIGHT IS MY COCOON. SO AS I LOSE WEIGHT I AM SHEDDING MY COCOON (WEIGHT) AND TRANSFORMING INTO A BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY BUTTERFLY. EACH DAY WHEN I GET UP AND I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AT MYSELF AND I AM FINALLY SEEING DAY BY DAY THE WOMAN WITHIN ME. I HAVE BECOME STRONGER AND STRONGER AS THE DAYS GO BY ALSO. I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING A LITTLE. YES, YES… THERE HAVE HAD TIMES THAT I DID LOSE SOME WEIGHT. BUT I GUESS WHAT I DID NOT LET THAT GET ME DOWN. WHAT I DID WAS TOOK AT LOOK AT WHAT I DID THAT WEEK AND CHANGED IT AND WHEN I DID I LOST 6 LBS. SO FAR I HAVE LOST LIKE 139 LBS IN 22 WEEKS. I AM SO HAPPY THAT ON MARCH 17, 2010 I STARTED MEDIFAST. I AM 9 LBS FROM MY SUMMER GOAL OF GETTING LESS THAN 600 LBS. THIS HAS BEEN A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE FOR ME. I SEE THAT IS SO MUCH LIFE HAS TO OFFER ME AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING EVERYTHING THAT MY HEART DESIRE. I HAVE BEEN A PRISONER OF MY BODY FOR TOO LONG AND I HAVE TAKEN BACK CONTROL. I AM NOW AND WILL ALWAYS LIVE MY LIFE WITH NO LIMITATIONS. I KNOW THAT I CAN DO ALL THINGS AS LONG AS I HAVE THE MOST HIGH IN MY LIFE RIGHT BY MY SIDE. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING ME ON THIS JOURNEY. YOUR KIND WORDS GIVES ME AN EXTRA BOOST TO KEEP DOING WHAT I AM DOING.

I have changed my weigh in day to Sundays.. I'm down 6 more lbs this week for a total of 133lbs in 20 weeks. I am so proud of myself and yes it feels so good. I have been working so hard to get to get to my goal. Things are really looking up for me now. I can see things much clearly now and I see now that nothing can keep me from true happiness. I will keep pushing until I get to my goal of 200 lbs. The last couple of weeks I would only lose like 2-3 lbs and I would be like what is going on. I am doing everything right but my loss has slowed down a lot. So today I got on the scale and I had loss 6 lbs and I was blown away. I am 14 lbs away from meeting one of summer goals of getting under 600 lbs. Thanks everyone for all your support!!!!!!
Hello my dear friends! I know that I have been away for a minute but I have been focusing on finishing my last 2 classes. I will be getting my Ass. in Psy in the next couple of weeks. I have loss 127 lbs so far on this lovely plan in 19 weeks. Yesterday we had a family cookout and I was in there with everyone else. It has been a long time since I did that. My family always have things but I use to stay in my bed and isolate myself from everyone. Yes, I was in there with everyone and I had string beans and grill chicken breast without the skin. GO ME!!!!!!!!!!!! NO MORE STAYING IN MY ROOM!!!!!!!! I will be in there with everyone else. I am still walking daily on my side walk and up and down my ramp. I also do dumb bells, bands, easy cycle, chair exercise and legs exercise daily. I love the way that I am feeling and the way that my skin is glowing. i am keeping the smile on my face and my Queen face. Many have asked me how she is doing well I have some good news. About a month ago she came to me and my sister and told us that back in March the doctor told her she only had a year and a half to live. That hit me like a ton of bricks. I was like why didn't you tell us back in March. GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So she continued chemo to prolong her life. The about 2 weeks ago she had to go get a PET scan done(I think that is how is spell it) THEY DO NOT SEE ANY CANCER IN HER NECK OR LUNGS!!!!!!! PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH!!!!!!!!!!! He is so good and we know that he have the last say in all that we go through. We must keep the faith. So my Queen is doing good and she is full of energy. She have been enjoying herself. We are now living everyday like it is our last day. I will post a picture of her on my page so you can see her. I also have posted new pics of myself on there and I will have more videos to come real soon. i am 20 lbs from meeting my summer goal of getting under 600lbs. I was having a hard time getting my water in but I am doing better now. The swelling of my lymph edema is going down. My legs is doing a lot better since had gotten that infection in it. I just want to say thanks to everyone for all the support that you have been giving me. WE CAN AND WILL BEAT THIS BATTLE AGAINST OBESITY!!!!!!! 1 DAY AND 1 POUND AT A TIME!!!!!!!!!!
