I have just recently turned the big 5-0 and i have decided that it's time to get rid of this weight. After all, I would like to make it to the big 6-0! I am currently at my heaviest weight , about 240, and I say "about" because I'm not really sure. I stopped weighing myself a long time ago as it was much too depressing. My goal weight is 170. That's where I was a mere eight years ago and I intend to get back to it by the end of 2012! So... here we go!
To lose 80 pounds by the end of 2012.
To be healthier and more active for my grandchildren.
To stop my symptoms of pre-diabetes.
To be a better role model for those individuals I work with as a counselor.
I will begin this process by stretching every morning, trying to complete at least 10 minutes of exercise daily, being more mindful of what I eat, and stop eating mindlessly at night (my biggest weakness).
I am a 50 year old grandmother of two perfect little boys. I am married to a wonderful man who loves me completely, no matter what. I am a licensed professional counselor currently working as a Christian counselor and I love it!
God, grant me…
The serenity to accept
the people I cannot change,
The courage to change the one I can,
And the wisdom to know it’s me.
Secrets of Success

"Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
Even if you canâ€™t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, youâ€™ll find new ways to make even more.
Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
Even if youâ€™ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now."
â€” Ralph Marston

"How do you build up your bank account? By putting something in it everyday.
Your health account is no different. What I do today, I am wearing tomorrow.
If I put inferior foods in my body today, I'm going to be inferior tomorrow, it's that simple."
