SSSHHHHH

I will let you in on a little secret - I am changing me life. Yep, SO much has changed in my life over the past few years that I am now feeling invincible. I am going to conquer the one area of my life that has never been conquered before - my weight.

I had been walking for about 3 months, but have not lost a pound. Yea, I know all the sayings, "muscle weighs more than fat - you are probably building muscle" Also, my goal is not just to be a skinny minny, but to be healthy! BUT when you are as overweight as I am, weight must come off in order for total health to arrive!

When we were in Ft Worth, Reliv launched their now Slimdown 2009 and I got excited. Reliv has a specific product for weight loss, and people have used it to great success. I have gone on it and off of it about 5 times since it was released in Feb 2007. You probably remember my daughter, Reagan, went from a size 17 to a size 9 using this product. Anyway, I started Slimplicity consistently on February 24th and did not weigh until today - my one month anniversary. Today, I have officially lost 8 lbs and 6 inches!! WOO HOO!!! I guess it is not a secret anymore, and I no longer want it to be - I don't have to be afraid of failure. I have the determination and now I have the tools - watch out!

Congrats to you on your weight loss!! And that's impressive how much weight your daughter lost too! (My mom lost 40 pounds just by walking 4 times a week.)

Congratulations on what you have accomplished so far! Stick to it.
I am in the process of doing the same thing-I let winter win me over.
