The journey has certainly not been easy but I'm learning. I'm learning to appreciate me right now. I'm smart, funny and a little cute ;) I feel blessed to be living my life. Sometimes I forget these truths as I tackle this weight loss thing.

Yes, I am trying to lose weight but if I'm not content with who I am, I certainly won't be when I reach that "magical number."

I'm definitely a work in progress but I have faith that I will arrive at my goal!

Hi Carbochip! I dropped off Sparks for a few years and regained all of my weight plus more. I just got back on here a couple of weeks ago after seeing the scale top off at 234 pounds (after being all the way down to just under 170 only 3 short years ago). Glad you're still around and still working on your goals.
Donna

12. I値l be fitter.
13. I may actually have romance in my life!
14. I値l like myself more.
15. I値l feel like I致e achieved something important.
16. I値l be MORE CONFIDENT.
17. I値l have more self-esteem.
18. I値l be less self-critical.
19. I値l be more outgoing.
20. I値l do more things!

Hope you're having a great week!
It's been freezing cold here in Ohio, and I'm thinking of a warm, sunny beach to stay warm. So glad that you get to enjoy that beautiful California sunshine throughout the winter months!

Weekend's right around the corner -- let's make it a good one!
