Hi, I'm Dee! Welcome to my page! I want to be healthy so that I can enjoy my life and live it to the fullest! I have battled my weight my entire life but I refuse to give up!

I love a good quote and here are some of my favorites:

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Your biography is not your destiny, your decisions are."~Tony Robbins

Hi, I'm Dee! Welcome to my page! I want to be healthy so that I can enjoy my life and live it to the fullest! I have battled my weight my entire life but I refuse to give up!

I love a good quote and here are some of my favorites:

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Your biography is not your destiny, your decisions are."~Tony Robbins

"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them."
~ George Bernard Shaw

"Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, others make it happen."~Michael Jordan

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~Marianne Williamson

"Nothing can satisfy one whom God does not satisfy." ~St. Alphonsus Liguori

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”~Aristotle

“Being defeated is often temporary, giving up makes it permanent.” ~Marilyn von Savant

"Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible to do."
~Pope John XXIII

"With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts."~Eleanor Roosevelt

"Our bodies are the baggage we must carry through life.
The more excess the baggage, the shorter the trip."
~Arnold Glasgow

"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
~Geneen Roth

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal Information:
I have struggled with weight my entire life. I have finally decided to just focus on what I can do today to live a better, more healthier life! I know I won't be perfect, but I will be better!

I am a wife and a mother of two adult children:a daughter and a son. I am also a middle school math teacher from New Jersey. I have struggled with my weight since I was 10 yrs. old. I have tried just about every diet, and I read everything on weight loss and health. Yet in the last fifteen years, I have been unable to stick with a weight loss program for even a week. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, arthritis, and I have metabolic syndrome, which causes insulin resistance. I need to act now to avoid becoming diabetic. Most of all, I am just tired of being sick and tired!

Other Information:
I love to watch T.V. & movies. I like to read and listen to music as well. I enjoy playing Scrabble, Ruzzle, Word with Friends, Dice with Buddies and Mexican Train Dominoes. I especially love to Spark! My favorite place is the beach!

"Start somewhere, today. Don't put it off.
You can do something, no matter how 'small' you think it is in terms of your long term goal.
Every step you take is one you'll be thankful for when you get there.
Remember; You're lapping everyone who's still on the couch."
-Caressa Sharp
