Tornado in Colorado
I am sure everyone has heard by now, of the horrific tornado that touched down in Windsor, CO this morning. My brother was in the Tornado, and we have a lot of friends in that area. My brother said he woke up this morning to beautiful weather, he started getting ready for work, then he heard crashing noises.. went to go check at the window..and saw baseball size hail falling.. then the window exploded in his face, then all the glass was instantly sucked back out the window. He ran outside to see people running, and screaming.. One woman came running up to him saying "Please help, my house is gone". He has been helping people all morning as much as he could..trying to patch up windows. Please pray for the people in Windsor, CO. Many people were hurt, and lost their homes. Sure brings things back into perspective when those you know and love are affected by tragedy!
A little about me...
It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)
In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.
I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.
There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.
So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
