Ok- took a little time off there and now it is time to get back to it!
I am setting new goals- and staying away from the cake!!

This is within my control, now if I could just act like it!!!
"Everyday offers a chance to choose anger or understanding, bitterness or acceptance, darkness or light. And the choices we make reveal the stuff we are made of. "
Robin McGraw
O, God, give me grace for this day.
Not for a lifetime, nor for next week,
nor for tomorrow, just for this day.
Direct my thoughts and bless them.
Direct my work and bless it.
Direct the things I say, and give them blessing too.
Direct and bless everything that I think and speak and do.
So for this one day, just this one day, I have the gift of grace that comes from your presence.
O, God, for this day, just this one day, let me live generously, kindly, in a state of grace and goodness that denies my many imperfections and makes me more like you.

Marjorie Holmes

I am turning over a new leaf today. There are hundreds of women on this site who have done amazing things and I want to be one of them!

I am choosing happiness, contentment with who and where I am, peace in my world, lots of joy, love, and forgiveness.

I am going to put myself first on my list of people to take care of so that I will have the energy to take care of all the rest.

I am going to live a purposeful life and make decisions that honor my family and my value system.

I will also make decisions, starting now, that will lead me to my goal. No more self sabotage, no more negative thinking, just thoughts of how strong and beautiful I really am.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14.

    Hey Friend, just checking in on you. I sure haven't done much for my weight loss (ugh). It is just not so easy for me. I think even when I eat right and try to exercise I still hardly lose. Maybe it really is a hormone issue or maybe just natural aging slowing of the metabolism (not happy about that!). It has always been a struggle and now it's harder! Yikes!

    I'm headed to Vegas with hubby next friday and then to CA for a week, returning June 22nd. I'm really going to try to hit the weight loss/exercise thing and feel better about myself. I can't give up!

    Hope you are doing great. Let me know if you are around and how your summer is going!

    I have been having trouble, since the holidays, getting fully "back on track", too! I gained almost 10 pounds from October until January! UGH!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have lost 6 pounds of that, so far, & I am FINALLY in full swing, again, with my training! Just joined the YMCA so I have access to a pool for lap-swimming, & am so excited to get outside & ride my bike! Here in VT, it has been "struggling", but I think Spring is finally coming! LOL!

    Happy Hump Day! So good to catch up with you!!! emoticon
