In life we all have choices to make whether to purchase the iPad2 wifi only or the 3G one (I am excited about this release)... No matter how small or significant, we all have difficult choices to make. I know I am personally weighing a life-changing choice that can affect my quality life. My doctor informed me that I should I consider having weight-loss surgery. When he said weight loss surgery, I was taken a back... No I wasn't shocked, it was the fact he said it. I knew I had a weight problem but I didn't know it was that serious. He was the first doctor that told me that I needed to lose weight. This blog is almost a year old and I haven't made any real changes that have equated into weight loss but more importantly happiness. My plate is full literally and figuratively... I keep adding and adding to and not completing what is already there. The real question is how long have been blinded by the truth that is be staring me in the face for so long. The idea of surgery has me scared bet yet terrified but this is a choice that I must pray on and research before making the choice. It is a choice that shouldn't be entered into lightly like many other things... Please pray for me as I pray on this one!!

It's Time for a Resolution AGAIN.....

Out with the old in the with new..

Ever year on December 31, we all vow to break some habit or start something new and usually by week 3 that resolution is thrown out window. I know I am guilty of it at the start of the new yea I am at the store purchasing new fitness DVDS and other fitness related items because I know this year will be different from the last. One year, I bought an elliptical which was eventually donated to charity and was rarely used. Last year, I bought 3 Biggest Loser DVDS and at least two of them haven't been open. So instead of saying.. I am going to lose weight and start working out more in 2011, I am just going to continue on the path of being the best person I can be. So no resolution for me this but a commitment to enjoy life more than I did in 2010...

I'm Back!!!!!

I know it has been a while since my last post and wow what a summer it has been. On June 18, 2010, I finished my first year of teaching and after only a year, I can say that I have found my calling. Throughout my first year of teaching, I learned so much about myself and my craft (more about that later). On June 22, I left Baltimore for North Chicago in order to work for the Shawn "The Matrix" Marion Basketball Camp. This year was the best thus far, the kids learned so much and walked away prepared for the school year with school supplies to get them started for the 2010-2011 school year. After Chicago, I journeyed home to Las Vegas where I helped with the 1st Annual Shawn Marion Celebrity Poker Tournament. I meet a ton of great people but more than anything I spent time with the people who mean the most to me, my nieces and family!

You are probably wondering if I lost any weight or got in fitness in and the answer is................SOME!! This summer was one of learning experiences... my eating was not on point and my fitness was low. However, I enjoyed the time with my family bonding over food, fun, and relaxation. In about an hour, I will be boarding a plan for Baltimore. My second year of teaching is going to be busy but I am prepared. I look forward to getting back on the right path to being FIT because I already know I am FABULOUS! I will link some pictures.

Fear Prevents Celebration

Can you remember a moment when you let fear stand in your way of accomplishing or doing something? I know I can... on more than one occasion. When fear sets in, you are closed off from doings that should happen because you might be afraid of failing or rejection. In order for real life to happen or success, we must overcome fear to the do the impossible. Whether it is running a marathon, or walking a 5k, or just find the courage to tell your crush you like. I charge you to do something bold and different that fear has prevented you from doing before. I walked my own personal 5K today and it was the best feeling ever. This week I am trying something I have feared before to have my own personal celebration!

Down 2 pounds this week! Rejoicing in PROGRESS!!

Since I Been Gone....

My has the weeks flown by!! I have been slacking on my pimping and spending way to much time stress and over indulging in sweets, Five Guys, Taco Bell, KFC, Chicken Boxes, and much more.. Yes my eating has been erratic and the workout non-existence. So have cleaned up the clutter in my life and is refocused. One more thing, my weight went up!! The Weighty Rollercoaster Continues!

A Weighty Rollercoaster

For over three years, I have been in a "relationship"... Never fully committed... Leaving and then two months later coming back... Our longest separation was over nine months but I eventually came back... Yes, I have some type of commitment issue but not with a man but with Weight Watchers... Now that I am a pound away from my original starting weight at Weight Watchers (279.6), I can't help but wonder what makes this time different...What about me is different this time around?

My weight tracker on Weight Watchers looks like a Six Flags Rollercoaster... Full of lows but it steadily climbed up.. Sharps ups and slow downs. I am excited to see the decline in the chart... But that will not happen if I don't tracking my meals, working out, and getting rid of toxic associates..
