I think that this is a good title for my continued weight loss journey. I lost 30 lbs. over the course of 1 year and have gone up and down over the past 24 months. I lost some inches, and I found them back in other places. Exercise has helped. Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle. Sleep is an important piece of the puzzle, as is what I eat from day to day.

My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being healthier in all aspects is just as important.
The SparkTeams are a great way to gain support, and I absolutely love the MysteryReaders team. It is an active group and these ladies really keep you on your toes.
The ultimate goal is to keep the focus on healthy living.

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!

emoticon Hoping you choose to live your life with the following emoticon

I Choose....
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete;
I choose self esteem, not pity.
I choose to listen to my
inner voice,
not the random
opinion of others.

Have a Spectacular Sunday!!
Lots of ((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & Smiles
Barb emoticon emoticon emoticon

~~Take the Power ~~

This life is yours.
Take the power to choose
what you want to do and do it well.
Take the power to love
what you want in life and
Love it honestly.
Take the power to walk in the forest
and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life
No one else can do it for you
Take the power to make your life happy.
~~Susan Polis Schutz ~~

Take this Tuesday ...
Make it a great one, and make it your own!!
