"You may only know who you've been. But, you don't realize who you're becoming!"
Erwin McManus


Hi Everybody! I just love SparkPeople! Everyone here keeps me going, keeps me motivated! You are all so INSPIRATIONAL to me!
I want to thank each and every one of you for all of the support and encouragement that is shared with everyone! None of us can do this alone.
I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude especially to my DONE sisters! We are:
DONE quitting!
DONE waiting for tomorrow!
DONE with excuses!
DONE carrying around all this excess baggage!
DONE with negative thinking!
DONE being the FAT girl!
So DONE...DONE...DONE!!!
KICKIN' those pounds to the curb, never to take them back again!
Because we are DONE!

Today I Will Make a Difference
by Max Lucado

Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.
I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference.
I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It’s OK to stumble… . I will get up. It’s OK to fail… . I will rise again. Today I will make a difference.
I will spend time with those I love. My spouse, my children, my family. A man can own the world but be poor for the lack of love. A man can own nothing and yet be wealthy in relationships. Today I will spend at least five minutes with the significant people in my world. Five quality minutes of talking or hugging or thanking or listening. Five undiluted minutes with my mate, children, and friends.
Today I will make a difference.

Member Since: 8/20/2008

My Goals:
I want to look and feel better.
* No more BIG tops!
* Can't wait to tuck in my shirts again!

I need to get myself in shape to be physically strong and in good health in order to do the work God has put on our hearts - My husband and I have a dream and a vision to help orphan children that live on the streets in the Dominican Republic - we have met many of them...and cannot forget them.
There is much work to be done and time is very precious!


My Program:
I've rejoined Weight Watchers. A good friend of mine who's lost 133 lbs has said that he decided when he joined Weight Watchers to just do everything they told him to do...because they know what they're talking about! So, that's what I'm now doing.



Personal Information:
My name is Dottie. I live on Long Island. I'm married to a wonderful man and am blessed with a large and loving family.


Other Information:
I'm tired of my weight being the first thing that people notice about me! I'm also tired of being the biggest person in the room!
I love the forum here that gives us the opportunity to encourage each other!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Jan. 30, you can be quite volatile and mercurial, and then at times you can be quiet, reserved, retiring and all but invisible to the world around you. What is it that determines which you will be at any given time? This is the mystery, for there is nothing, it seems, to dictate your character or behavior except the random influences of the earth and stars. You are likely to build your professional success on a foundation of hard work, for it is not likely that anything will be handed to you on the proverbial silver platter.

    You have a certain spirituality that is central to your makeup, and yet it is not something you advertise or display to others. What you believe, and how it affects you in your daily life, is entirely private, though there are times in which it will be impossible for you to hide it from others.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
