"If hunger is not the issue, than eating is not the solution."

"You're going to have to learn to select your thoughts the same way you select your clothes every day. Now that's a power that you can cultivate.... You want to come here and you want to control your life so bad?- work on the mind, and I don't think you should be trying to control a thing because if you can't master your thoughts you are in trouble forever."

Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.

Fine-tuning, joy, balance, graciousness....all gifts I have been given and thrown away. It is with new hope that I share my journey with my fellow travelers. 2011 is a new page but it is not blank. It is full of gifts not yet opened; growth not yet seen; grace underserved and yet poured out; times of falling that I will get up again from...

I started my quest to get healthy after years of battling numerous health issues and a slow metabolism..I am 31 now and an avid runner, biker, kayaker, skiier, hiker, swimmer (terrible at this but love flipping around in the water), golfer...anything that takes me outside and keeps me active. It took me 2 years (2003-2005) to lose 120 pounds and I have been keeping it off while letting a few pounds creep back....that started my downhill spiral to be up 30lbs from where I was. I have the exercise part down, now I need the food issues outta here! I am a financial advisor with a phenomenal husband and finding balance between the duties and joys of life...

2010 gave me a gift of refocus. A time to stop wallowing in the mire and muck I poured over myself and to be full of strength and truth and the vivaciousness I was created with. 2011 is my year to fine-tune those gifts and give all my fear and trembling over to God who ultimately holds me and my destiny in His hand. Each day is a gift that I can choose to waste with fear or live out to be a contribution. With His help; I choose HOPE.
