I am preaching (screaming) to the choir right now, and I "borrowed" these from various quotes pages.

"If You Are Tired Of Starting Over, Stop Giving Up"

"Be Stronger Than Your Excuses"

"Strive For Progress, Not Perfection"

"Fitness is like marriage, you can't cheat on it and expect it to work."

"Make time for it. Just get it done. Nobody ever got strong or got in shape by thinking about it. They did it."

"You didn't gain all your weight in one day; you won't lose it in one day. Be patient with yourself."

"Work out to see what your body can do, not what it can look like"

"It's a slow process but quitting won't speed it up"

Other Information:
I like to read, go to the gym, and go to concerts and movies. I heart Batman and Harley Quinn. I'm a LOTR nerd (my engagement ring is "the one ring"). I'm a Netflix junkie. I have a lot of scars and wounds that need healing and I'm utilizing the help of a student therapist and a sponsor for this. I am trying to learn to have more balance and not beat myself up so much but also challenge myself and hold myself accountable. I am an addict of all kinds - drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, codependency, food, drama, etc. I recently started going to OA and I think it's a good fit for me - I'm addicted to food.

    Hey, Stephanie! I'm glad to see you here today. I have to go out at the moment but look forward to getting back here later and reading your blog. Looks like you're keeping active. Hope all is well with you!

    Stephanie, thank you so much for your sweet response to my purple shoe blog. I appreciate your kind words about my writing. I have always admired your writing, too? I remember when a couple of years ago I found your treasure trove of blogs (you were posting lots of nature photos back then, too) and read a whole bunch in one day, some from years earler. That's one reason why your present-day happiness just blows me away--because I know how much pain and heartache you've been through. You have worked so hard and been so blessed to get to where you are now. Talk about miracles! Your beautiful self, your loving husband, and your adorable stepson--the most wonderful miracle!

    Hope you're enjoying your new life!

    Hi! In answer to your question about the grouping function - if you look at the nutrition tracker and see there's "Search", "Recent", "Favourites", "Groupings" and "Recipes". If you click on Groupings you can create your own grouping of different food items - this can be actual foods or ingredients - whatever you do to make your meal. So I have a breakfast one where I have just 1 boiled egg, 1 toast, 1 pat of butter, 1 cup of tea with 1 sugar and a serving of turkey deli slices. This is a routine breakfast I have - so instead of tracking each individual item into the tracker, I just click on grouping and select what I've already entered into there - Named it "Egg and Deli Breakfast" You can name yours whatever you want. It just makes it quicker than having to enter everything manually.

    Stephanie, I love, love, love your wedding photos!! I will remember those for a long, long time, as they are incredibly striking and full of the beauty and joy of the day. Congratulations on having found such a wonderful man, and congratulations to him, too, on having you in his life forever after!
