I AM DONE FEELING TIRED ALL THE TIME.

I AM DONE WITH ALL THE EXCUSES

I AM DONE WITH ABUSING MY BODY

I AM JUST DONE!!!!!!!!!

I look forward to sharing my successes and my up's and down's on this journey to the new me.

Finish Lines

Success is never measured by
The things we try to do;
It only comes when we have seen
A task completely through.

True Grit

The move from failure to success
Takes more than simply grit;
It starts when you first realize
You know you'll never quit.

Winning Strategy

Self-discipline is what it takes
To find a way to win;
To see if you have what it takes
Just take a look within.

JUST FOR TODAY

Just For Today
I'll stay on plan
Do all the exercise I can
I'll push myself a little more
Just for today
I'll up my score

I'll eat my fruit
And veggies too
Challenge my team
To follow suit
Just for today
I'll walk my tread
For every step gets me ahead

Just for today
I'll reach new heights
Then at days end
I'll sleep tonight
Accomplish this, content I'll feel
Tomorrow's goals will seem more real

Water, water can't get enough
I'll surely be ready
To kick up a fuss
But if in my plans
I falter still
When new day dawns
Push on...I will

Hi Charlene,

Thank you for your comment back in October. Sorry I haven't been in Spark for awhile (My mom had a stroke but she is okay). I was diagnosed in 2001 with Pap thyca tall cell variant and have had 5 additional neck dissections to remove cancerous lymph nodes. I had RAI in 2001 but it was determined that I am RAI resistant, thus the reason for the all of the surgeries. I had external beam radiation in 2010 and the cancer has not returned to the neck. Unfortunately, it moved to my lungs and we are watching them very carefully. Slow growning but alot to deal with. I hope I can help you on your journey - please let me know if you have any questions.

I too have had a hard time losing weight - I also had two children during all the surgeries and it's just been hard to deal with the weight too. I have type 2 diabetes which makes it even more crazy = but I know losing the weight is possible I just have to put my mind to it! Here is to 2014! emoticon
