Everyday I'm learning to love myself more. I'm learning that no one is going to hand you your happiness. You have to create it yourself. I'm learning that no matter how hard you try to feel other peoples pain and get emotionally involved in others, they are most likely not invested in you the way you are in them. I'm learning that I do have to be selfish and care about ME. If you can't take care of yourself how are you going to take care of any one else. Just like anything else that takes time and dedication I am a work in progress. Everyday I'm learning and becoming stronger. Everyday I'm learning that failure is not a character flaw, it is part of our human make up. So I'm okay with making mistakes along the way.

QUOTES:

"I learned that if you want to make it bad enough, no matter how bad it is, you can make it."~~Gale Sayers


"If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can't accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.".~~Rosalyn Carter


"focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. "~Greg Anderson







PERSONAL GROWTH:

I need to work on loving myself.

I need to work on living my life.

I need to work on getting rid of my self obssesive behavior about my body image.

I need to work on mending my mind.

I need to work on my lack of consistency.

I need to work on me.

My Goals:
1). I'm trying to lose 20 lbs. this month. It is a big goal. I'll work hard at trying to achieve it.

2). take time out for me and only me. Sorry kids.

3). Exercise more, more, more.

4). Drink lots of water(accomplished and accomplishing)

5). Stay focused on the task at hand.

6). Be realistic about my expectations.


My Program:
I've started the exercise thing a little slow. I've been working on my eating habits. I have been doing well with that. I eat all the time. breakfast, lunch, and dinner with snacks in between. The old me would graze all day and have a big dinner in the evening. Then I would graze some more until I went to bed. These changes are helping me lose the weight.



Personal Information:
My name Is LouLou. I'm 31 years old. I'm currently living in Missouri. I"m married and I have two kids. I will be moving in 5 months to Texas. I'm excited about it because Texas is home to me. The kids are excited as well because they get to see their cousins.

    Hi LouLou! I'm so glad you found Spark and I hope you love it here as much as I do!!! It really is a great place where you can find the support we all need in this and learn to take care of ourselves for ourselves. If we don't take care of us who will? And I love all the quotes on your page! I use a lot of things like that to motivate me, too. Good luck and I know you can do this!
