Hi Christina, I am also from Shelby County. I was doing good last year with losing weight (18 lbs) when my dad fell and passed away a month later. Gave up my wants and needs to help my mom. Well I decided this year it was time to get back on taking care of myself. I started the Weigh to Live program with American Family Care and have lost a little bit of weight. When I started I weighed 228 lbs. I am down to 221 lbs. Any movement helps I even count my running around getting ready for work as part of my exercise cause once my feet hit the floor I don't sloe down until I get in the car. Keep your chin up and you will be fine.

God will not put more on you than you can handle.

Slow and steady wins the race (even in losing weight).

All things are possible through God.

ACE is one of the amazing products that the SABA company has to offer. It stands for Appetite Control and Energy. For me and my fiance (who has lost right at 60lbs) the appetite control has helped us not be controlled by hungry so we can make healthier choices and we full up so much quicker. And the energy is unbelievable its better then a 5 hour shot or any other energy drink that I have every taken, and its cheaper then any of the energy drinks. Below is the description that the company has on their website. If you have any more question about it just ask.

Saba’s exclusive scientifically formulated ACE weight loss supplement contains the top five most effective weight loss ingredients scientifically formulated into one pill! Our ACE master mix of ingredients includes Garcinia Cambogia extract, Raspberry Ketone, Green Coffee Bean extract, Konjac Rootextract and Saffron extract. Multiple ingredients in our exclusive ACE proprietary formula have been shown in numerous research and clinical studies to help boost your metabolism so you’ll lose weight fast and keep it off for good! www.sabaforlife.com/SkinnyIs

Welcome Christina. Jump right in on the chats & challenges. You'll find we're not perfect but we support each other. We're in this together. I started out at 199 last year. I've lost 31 pounds so far. According to my BMI I was considered obese & did not like that. Never thought I'd be happy saying I'm over weight. My next goal is to say I'm average.

Good luck. Remember, we're here for you.

Welcome to the team Alabama Christina.....we are so glad you joined up on
your quest to be healthier...

I have never called Spark a diet but rather a healthier lifestyle plan....I have
lost 75 lbs....and feel so much better...

I am curious, what is ACE? this is something I had not heard of before....

Jump in and get involved in team activities as much as you can with little ones around..
they are such a blessing...

Again, Welcome,

Hey everyone I'm Christina and I am 24 years old from Shelby County. I'm a stay at home mom to a 2 year and also babysit another 2 and 4 year old most days so my day is designed around them. I have went from 255 down to 221 in 2013 just from taking ACE and eating more salad and drinking water only. I did exercise some but not as much as I wanted to. I don't really have a goal weight because to me its more about how you feel about yourself not a number on a scale. I know I want to lose at least 21 lbs to get to 200 and then I will see how I feel about myself and go from there.
