TODAY I WILL LOVE ME !
Hi my name is Destiny! I am 31 years old,and I am married with 4 children! I have struggled with my weight since I was a child! I have always thought that if I could just be thin I could finally be Happy,but today I have made a decision to quit trying to be thin so I can be happy. Im going to be happy so I can be thin!! I am absolutely, positively, DONE!! No longer will I be afraid to go into public places. I will no longer envy the skinny girls!! I have made big changes in my life and all because I AM DONE!! I am glad that I can share this experience with SP and the DONE team!!!
Well I am now going on week 10 of really being committed to eating better and exercising, minus a day here and there I splurged a little but I was fast to get back on track!! I have come too far to quit now!! I have lost a total of 25.5 pounds, I have finally made it out of the 230's and Im on to the 20's!! There was once a time I thought this was not possible, I had come to the conclusion that I was just going to be the fat girl the rest of my life, and maybe some of you reading this have either felt that way too or is feeling like that right now!! But beleive me and many other sparklers when we say...IT IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE!! I still have a long way to go but I know that I can do it and you can too!!
Peace is not something you wish for; it's something you make, something you do, something you are, something you give away.
*“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar
Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.
There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you.
David Burns, Intimate Connections
Heaven never helps the man who will not act.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of.
The only journey is the journey within.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time.
Lyndon B Johnson
All we are saying is give peace a chance...
When you believe you can-you can!
People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
There are no shortcuts to life's greatest achievements.
“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”
“A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn’t will find an excuse.”
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however
“May you live every day of your life
“Set yourself up for success and anything is possible.”
It is never too late to be what you might have been
If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.”
“Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there
“You will never find time for anything. You must make it.”
““Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.” ”
“Fall seven times. Stand up eight
“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who really make it in this world are the ones who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them, they make them.”
Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
You can't have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.
It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.
W. Somerset Maugham
The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.
For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
I was angered, for I had no shoes. Then I met a man who had no feet.
What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
* I have come to the frightening conclusion...
That I am the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration,
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides
whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated,
and a person is humanized or de-humanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be,
we help them become
what they are capable of becoming.
