Hi! I'm Jeanne! I had lost 76 pounds in less than a year with the help of SP and the support of the friends I've made on here! Then an immune system problem happened. I'm way up now but still down by 10.4 pounds. I am working with doctors on the problem with the immune system and things are slowly getting better but I'm still not able to cook for myself or exercise. I am not giving up though! I refuse to give in to depression and I know I can drop that weight now that I know how!! SP works and I love all the friends I've made on here who've continued to support me through all the difficulties!

UPDATE: I am back on SP now! I am starting slowly on the exercise due to being way out of shape. I am making healthy meals now for the most part and feeling better 4-5 days a week and good enough to post the other 2 so I'm ready to be on here and back at my goals!

    “Hope for the best, be prepared for the worse. Life is shocking, but you must never appear to be shocked. For no matter how bad it is it could be worse and no matter how good it is it could be better.”

    Free yourself from negative people. Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be you – and being you is the only way to truly live.

    The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
    Attitude, to me is more important than facts.
    It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do.
    It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
    It will make or break a company...a church...a home.
    The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
    We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
    We cannot change the inevitable.
    The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude.
    I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
    And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.
