I am working on my new book titled Growing Up and so far I have 7 chapters finished and I hope to have it all done by the middle of March. That way I can have it ready for publishing by the end of March. I know that it takes along time to write a mini novel but I am up to the challenge.
My book starts out with the sentence like this

Have you ever really sat back and reflected back on your life and what it was truly like growing up as a child in a world so big and beautiful?

Let me know what you think about that sentence please because I need to know if it fits as the opening sentence of my book.

So far I have done about 2000 minutes of fitness that I have not recorded in SparkPeople. Which is not me not to. I have to start writing the amount of fitness I get in so I can record it here. I am eating healthy again and I know that it will be along time before I will see my weight change but I know I can do this. My goals are the same with an added one which I have not stated yet because I have to see if I can actually do it or not.

I will be going for more walks around my neighborhood so I can start feeling the burn and the joy of actually doing it and the satisfaction i will feel afterwards. I am going to start by getting up at 7 every morning and getting my youngest son off to school and then coming home and doing some house work and then going for a 2 mile walk each day. just until I get my treadmill

So far I have been able to reach for the first goal on my journey and that was to start eating healthy again. The second part to my goal will happen in 2 weeks when I will be able to get out and walk again since the snow is starting to melt here in Nova Scotia.

I have finally decided to put myself first instead of my family because I want to be better at everything I do. I have set my goals back to what they were when I joined Spark People and now I am looking at the way I plan to do things.

I have been writing in my journal here at home and now I will be able to put my thoughts down better then ever. I hope to take my thoughts and write a book about my journey to loss weight. I hope that I can do it right this time without any set backs.

I have sat back and reflected on my life as it is now and I have come to the realization that my goals are worth reaching for in 2012. I am looking forward to using my new weights that my young son gave me for Christmas. I have set my goal to lose another 20 lbs by February and I know with a great deal of motivation I can reach it. I have already lost a total of 21.9 lbs so far and I have asked my doctor what my starting weight was and he told me that it was 245 lbs and not 235. I am putting a plan in order to purchase a treadmill soon and I am saving up the money to do so.

I want to feel the strength I use to have and be able to lift 75 lbs again. I use to be able to do alot of thing before and now that I am older I can't seem to do as much because of my weight. My mother told me once that if you want to succeed in losing weight set your goals at a small amount at first and build up from there and that is what I am doing now,

Goals are like stars-- reach for that shining star that out of reach and hope for the best when you finally grasp it in your hands. Never give up on what you believe in because if you give up you will never be able to say that you have succeeded in what you have set out to do.

I had a dream the other night that I was sitting on the beach watching the waves crashing along the shore. I was sitting there meditating so I could be one with my mind and body when I opened my eyes and looked at my body and I was skinny again. I want that dream to come true so bad that I can taste it.

I wish to be able to have a new book that talks about my goals while I am going through this journey and have people say that She has came along way from what she use to be.
