Hi!! My name is Beth. I'm 38 years old . My start weight was 425 pounds. I knew that if I didn't change I would never live to see 40. I couldn't do anything without feeling like I was dying. I couldn't even walk to the bathroom without getting winded. Now I'm healthier, and happier. I have a long way to go but at least I've started my journey.


Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind or tide or sea.

Hi!! My name is Beth. I'm 38 years old . My start weight was 425 pounds. I knew that if I didn't change I would never live to see 40. I couldn't do anything without feeling like I was dying. I couldn't even walk to the bathroom without getting winded. Now I'm healthier, and happier. I have a long way to go but at least I've started my journey.


Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind or tide or sea.
I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
For low my own shall come to me.

I stay my haste,I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace.
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.

Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me.
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years.
My heart shall reap where it has sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.

The waters know their own, and draw,
The brook that springs in younder height.
So flows the good with equal law,
Unto the soul of pure delight.

The stars come nightly to the sky,
The Tidal wave unto the sea.
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.

--John Burroughs

Look back and thank God.

Look forward and trust God.

Look around and serve God.

Look within and find God!"


God closes doors no man can open and
God opens doors no man can close.
