Never Ending Journey

THE C.A.M.O. COMMITMENT

I AM C.A.M.O.!!!
I will hit the ground hard and push myself to better myself and to achieve my goals.

I will not be stopped by obstacles, I see issues and problems as something to overcome. When I stumble or fall down I will pick myself back up and move forward again.

I will not settle for easy or good enough. I will challenge myself to do something I have not been able to do before.

THE C.A.M.O. COMMITMENT

I AM C.A.M.O.!!!
I will hit the ground hard and push myself to better myself and to achieve my goals.

I will not be stopped by obstacles, I see issues and problems as something to overcome. When I stumble or fall down I will pick myself back up and move forward again.

I will not settle for easy or good enough. I will challenge myself to do something I have not been able to do before.

I will celebrate my successes both big and small. I understand each step forward, no matter how small, will add up to make me a tougher athlete with more endurance and strength.

I will continue to improve my knowledge about what works for ME to lose weight/maintain that loss, including healthy eating, exercising, and a healthy lifestyle, understanding that we are all individuals.

I will work to hone the skills that make me C.A.M.O., knowing the elite are not made overnight.

I understand to achieve my goals, I need to have a battle plan, move forward, and regularly review my progress, making any needed adjustments over time.

I am on this tour of duty with my fellow C.A.M.O. teammates and I understand the value of comradeship. While I am more likely to be out exercising or creating healthy meals, I do check in regularly knowing that there is strength in numbers.

I share my successes, big and small, and I derive encouragement and motivation from my fellow C.A.M.O.’s successes.

At times C.A.M.O.s discuss battle plans and insights, always focusing on how we can understand the terrain and reach our goals, but often more extensive discussions are done in another forum specific to that topic.

We are positive about our journeys, we know there will be battles but we are not alone - many of our fellow C.A.M.O.s have either fought that battle before, are fighting it now, or will be fighting it in the future. Together we support and encourage each other.

We are all on this march together and together we will succeed!
Because WE ARE C.A.M.O.!!

I made the 2 year mark its been a struggle but at 2 years of maintenance I am feeling more confident that I can do this Never have I stayed at target weight this long in the pass it would only take 6 months and I have to start over. I am still working out the kinks but there is no turning back for me.

Next two 5k June 8th for youth at risk and Sept 14th Healthy Start 5K for healthy babies.

Then the big on in October 26th Bride of Frankenfooter

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
