Caren's Corner

I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 170. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other ...
I'm living the lifestyle, eating & exercising like the slim, fit & healthy person I want to be; by body can't help but catch up, because I'm worth it, and I deserve it.

I've been painfully aware that I've lost large amounts of weight before, and gained it all back and more! I'm embarrassed I was 202 in 2007, 168 in 2008, 209 in 2010, and now I'm at 170. I want people to know that I gained 40 pounds, even though I was on SparkPeople. I know I'm not alone. Regain happens to other people, too. I feel for them, and want them to know that with the right kind of tools (mostly mental) you can lose the weight for the last time.

I'm 53, divorced and have 3 boys: 27, 22 & 15.

GROWTH is Painful! CHANGE is Painful!
But, NOTHING is as PAINFUL as staying STUCK
Somewhere you DON'T belong!


Caren,

Never forget that you've got the drive to defeat & destroy ANY obstacle that gets in the way of your goals! I have faith that you will see this journey to the end & beyond! Some days will be harder than others but each day will bring you one step closer to the BIG goal, the BIG dream & the BIG picture! Never stop fighting - - YOU are WORTH it!!!

Stay Positive,

Jes

SOME WEDNESDAY WISDOM

"There is NO passion to be found in SETTLING
for a life that is LESS than the one you are CAPABLE of living."

- - NELSON MANDELLA - -


Sweetheart,

Never settle for less than EXACTLY what you want out of life!
Let your DREAMS be BIGGER than anything you may FEAR!
Let your ACTIONS speak LOUDER than your WORDS!
Don't be afraid of failing - - Be afraid of NEVER daring to try!
You DESERVE to live your life to it's fullest capacity!
YOU are WORTH the time, the energy & the effort!
You CAN & WILL do this!! I believe in YOU:)

Stay Positive,

Jes
