Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I've always heard that "life is like a roller coaster, full of ups and downs". I never thought that would apply to my weight.... This has been my whole adult life. Up and down! I'm tired of the roller coaster and I WANT OFF! I am tired of not doing what I want, going were I want and saying what I want. Always avoid drawing attention to myself in fear that people will notice how fat I really am. Duh! NO MORE, THIS IS IT! I accept myself unconditionally as I am right now! I am not calling my past "failures", I am calling them "experiences". They were the practice for my final success story, that I am beginning to write today!

My words to live by are"failing to plan is planning to fail!",
"Eat wise and drop a size!", "Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is whats going to keeps you going.", "The first bite tastes the same as all the rest.", "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you�ll land among the stars!" , "Eating too much is the worst possible waste of good food. This doesn't help starving children anywhere, and it makes the overeater a bit less healthy." , " A woman who wants something will find a way; a woman who doesn't will find an excuse." & " What lies behind us and what lies before us is nothing compared to what lies within us. "
We'll both reach our goals if we keep doing the work.
M- MAKE SHORT TERM GOALS
O- OUT WITH THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
T- THINK OF WHY YOU WANT THIS
I- IMAGINE HOW YOU WILL FEEL
V- VISUALIZE HOW YOU WILL LOOK
A- ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESSES

Here's what I need to do:
1. Turn my thoughts into words
2. Turn my words into actions
3. Turn my actions into habits
My habits over time will become my character, and my character over time leads to my destiny.
Today, I just want to tackle the first step -- because without this, the journey can't even begin.
My 1st 2016 goal is to lose 25lb by May 1st.
Short Tearm Goal- I want to go from 377 to 299lb....by 12/25/16
Long Term Goal- I will be under 199lb by 1/1/18 one year from the above date.
Thats 100lb in a year.
....I know I can do it! I am doing it!
YOU CAN DO IT!
One seed at a time and the garden grows;
One drop at a time and the river flows.
One word at a time and the book is read;
One stroke at a time and the paint is spread.
One chip at a time and the statue's unveiled;
One step at a time and the mountain is scaled.
One thing at a time and that done well
Is the only sure way to succeed and excel.
You can write, you can paint, you can sculpt or
You can do it by taking one step at a time.
Meeting my daily goals one day at a time.
Drinking 8 glasses of water per day.
Staying with in my calorie range every day. Log my food everyday. Walk 2x a week. Stay away from sugar. Forgive myself and move on. Plan, plan, plan and have a back up plan. Stay positive!!!!
I know I can do this!!!!
I am 46 years old living in Los Angeles California with 5 children, 3 still at home and high blood pressure. I am determined to become healthy!
"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." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Done Girl, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.
Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, and even though this isn't even talked about in the family, the child picks up on this and learns to not trust others. Scorpio always asks "What do they want from me" or "What is in this for me." Because of this, Scorpio is insecure and must be in control in any relationship they are in.
The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
Scorpio gets along with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. They should avoid Libra and Sagittarius, who are both outgoing people that would make Scorpio very jealous. Scorpio health issues involved problems with fertility & the reproductive organs. They can also have problems with the throat including the thyroid.
