Maribel's Introductory Post

Hi! My name is Maribel. I live in the province of Alicante, Spain. My husband and I have three children ages 13, 11 and 8. I have participated in several challenges with Dani Joy and they all have been a blessing. Sometimes I've been more "active" than others, but they have always helped me take care of myself. 

We moved to Petrer, Alicante 4 years ago to start a church. The Lord is blessing and we are grateful for what He is doing in us and through us.
We are missionaries here but I am a school teacher as well. I teach at a trilingual school my children attend. We eat at school and when we get home I like to make foods my family enjoy. Although we eat pretty healthy meals, there is always food that I should not eat to keep my weight where I want it. So the challenge is to pass on foods that the rest of the family can eat in good conscience. 
Another challenge will be to exercise daily. I have started, but I have to get back to a good routine. I know that when I get into the routine, I will have more stamina and won't feel like going to bed right behind my children, as I do now.

This family picture was taken this past summer in Segovia. We don't live there and that is not our home, but the Alcázar de Segovia. :-)

My measurements are a little behind last challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing results soon.

Height: 5' 3' 
Weight: 127 lbs.
Chest: 31
Waist: 29
Hips: 38
Right Thigh: 21.5
Left Thigh: 21.5
Right Arm: 11
Left Arm: 11

I could not find a full picture of me, so I'll post this one from this summer. I'm at a water fight at camp, and the guy next to me is my oldest son, David!

Hey, Maribel! I am so excited you are joining in. You are so funny posting that picture of you from behind. Hahaha

Love that picture of your family at Segovia.

Oh btw how much are you weighing right now? Unless you don't want to post it. That's no problem. I am just curious. I am not maintaining as well as I thought I would. It's been hard for me through the summer and fun eating.

Well, let's keep at this. Thanks for motivating and keeping things in perspective.

Crunchin with ya
Dani Joy

That's funny! I don't know what happened, but I erased the weight somehow! 57.5 kilos..127 pounds. I'll edit the post!

Maribel, I love the picture of your family at the castle. We were there and took a picture from the same spot with the Dyserts (Madridmom). -- Cindy B.
