My favorite quotes:
We are much more than the number on the scale. would like for us to feel inferior if we weigh more than 120lbs, it's us that buy into this notion that our size determines our worth. There is no person more valuable than another, we are all here for a purpose, We are all equally beautiful. Let's work together to bury this idea that we need to be a certain size to matter & be accepted as whole. It starts with our own self image ♥ Here's to your HEALTH!

What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
A Healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul;
A sick body is a prison. ~ Francis Bacon
This is not a diet; this is MY LIFE.
You're a fantastic person on an exciting journey,
in the middle of creating a life that you want.
"We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible." Vince Lombardi
If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way;
if you don't, you'll find an excuse.
I'm on the *Low-Crap-Diet* and a *Get-Off-Your-Butt* Exercise Plan.
...long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. It�s picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.
Learn the Unforced Rhythms of Grace
Lay Low in the Power of God
Stop Blow Drying Dead Rabbits
�There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.�
~Kenneth Blanchard
Small actions, good OR bad, do add up over time.
Take what you get and you get what you give
I said dont run from yourself man that's no way to live
I've got a record in my bag you should give it a spin
Put your hands in the air so that life can begin

If God is a DJ, Life is a dance floor
Love is a rythm, You are the music

If God is a DJ , Life is a dance floor
You get what is given
(Then get your ass on the dance floor)
It�s all how you use it

It is SO much easier to NOT put 100 calories IN
than it is to excercise 100 calories OFF!
Why hasn't anyone asked me why the hec I would ever blow dry a dead rabbit?

My Goals:
My goal is to lose at least 42 pounds. I'm starting over again. Here goes (11/30/13)

UPDATING MY GOAL: OK, serious 28 pound dent accomplished as of 8/28/09. It'stime to reset a PRE-New Year goal. By Jan 1st, 2010 ~ I *WILL* lose another 22 pounds. I will, I will, I will ! ! !
After a set back, I'm starting to move forward again, looking toward that 51 birthday and working on becoming better than I was yesterday.
10/31/11 ~ Starting over again. Began my journey here in 'o9. lost 20 lbs. Went MIA, but made it down 30lbs. Dropped out completely, did ok for a yr. In the last yr. I've gotten preoccupied with - not me! and put on 10 more than I have ever weighed in my life. My body is telling me to 'Get that together, come back and see me!" Here goes!

My Program:
1) I'm recommitting to walking at least a mile a day.
***6/6/09***With 8 weeks left until my 50th, Let's up this to at least 3 miles a day! Hopefully more!
***8/14/09 My 50th just a cpl weeks away, and I'm still working on getting to a 30 pound loss. I will reset my time frame to losing 50 lbs sometime in my 50th year! I'm still progressing! Yay!
***9/21/ Jan 1st, 2010!
***5/27/ 8/29/10

2) I've joined this site for inspiration and guidance.
6/6/09 -* I plan to work toward losing at least 1 pound per week between now and 8/29/09!

3) I plan to make better choices

4) Eliminate the Starbuck's flabaccinos!

5) I HAVE BEGUN strength training, and firming up these flappy things on my upper arms! (3*17*09) ...or 5*4*09, instead!
6/6/09- This is happening every other day! I WILL have fantastic 'guns' by 8/29/10!
***10/31/11 ...plugging my treadmill back in after a long absence from this site!
