I'm smiling 'cause I have bows on my butt!!!!





A clean, organized pantry helps in the meal planning process. Now I know what I've got and what I need. I need to keep it this way this time!

It's a great day to be alive!!!!!

I've been on this journey for several years now to get healthy and lose weight. I've lost so many family members to cancer, including my mom and my grandfather within 18 days of each other. Heart disease and diabetes are also prevalent and I am determined to do all I can to try and prevent these diseases in myself.

When I started this journey, I was a tight sized 16 and am now down to a size 10. I was having heart palpatations at least once a week. This would happen not when ...
I've been on this journey for several years now to get healthy and lose weight. I've lost so many family members to cancer, including my mom and my grandfather within 18 days of each other. Heart disease and diabetes are also prevalent and I am determined to do all I can to try and prevent these diseases in myself.

When I started this journey, I was a tight sized 16 and am now down to a size 10. I was having heart palpatations at least once a week. This would happen not when I was exercising but when I was sitting still. Since I began regular exericse and a better diet, those have disappeared. I also used to suffer with IBS and due to dietary changes, I've not had an "episode" (as I call them) in years.

I have about 14 lbs to go to reach the goal my doctor and I have set. This will put me right at the mid-range of a healthy BMI. It's these last few pounds that are giving me fits! I've been on this current plateau for months, but it's my own doing. I fell off the wagon for quite some time as far as both eating and exercising regularly.

It finally hit me a few weeks back that I must be a priority in my own life. I must stop with the excuses. I have complete control over whether or not I succeed and I fully intend on succeeding!

Hi, Daughter!
I was inspired by your story of your Mother. How wonderful that you had her to learn from. I have never been a very spiritual person, but for months after my husband's death, he would visit me in dreams and tell me how to solve my current dilemma. Same thing with my Mother and Daddy. Their examples of strength, determination, and humor force me to get out of my box and test my own limits. (Although I would procrastinate less if I had one of them to really nag me!!)
Keep up the good work on your own fitness; do it for Mother, for yourself, and for all of us who are here working together.
Hugs! Esther!

I just read a comment you left about how your inspiration is your mother, how we should cherish the here and now and the little things, live and not just exist... I must say, those words have inspired me!!
Thank you! emoticon
