I really need to get on here and update a lot, but for today I will stick with my weight. I am hovering around my "goal" weight at 143 lbs! I am stoked and ready to take on some new challenges. I just need to decide what those will be! LOL!

My new mantra I think will be, "The only thing that can grow is the thing that you give energy to" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds cannot process what we don't want in our lives. It doesn't understand don't, won't etc. It only hears that thing that follows. If we say we don't want to be out of shape, our mind only understands and therefore processes that we want to be out of shape. Thinking of our lives this way really makes you wonder what we can do by just changing our focus!

I saw your comment on Wazaroos page as I was about to post the same comment! I'm glad to know that there is someone else out there who feels the same as I do. I was considering leaving the team too, but maybe this will be a wake-up call and they'll get back to the original team sentiment. emoticon Alena

P.S. I'm from MI, near Detroit too.

Thank you so much for visiting, reading the blog, and your wonderful comment.

It's not always easy to stand up for what's right... but it sure does make it a heck of a lot easier to sleep at night, doesn't it?

Hi Kathi. Thanks for your comments on my post. I read your page and can't imagine having my family living within an hour's drive. What a blessing for you. Someday I would love to have the same. For now, all the people we are stationed with are our "family" Living on the other side of the world doesn't afford much opportunity for family get togethers, so we improvise. :)

Best wishes to you for continued success. You're SO close to your goal!
Love,
Audri
