PROUD MEMBER OF THE SAPPHIRE BEAUTIES!

May 2013: Every choice counts. I have learned there is no magic. We get up each day and we make the best choices we can for our lives and our bodies. We cherish our family and friends, we embrace each day as it comes to us. I wrote the rest of this back early in 2013 when I was feeling sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Progress is a good thing.

I just get tired of trying and stopping and trying. I am tired of being 'on a diet'. I get resentful and rail against life because other people can 'eat normally' and have a life and why does mine have to be different.

Sometimes I get tired of being tired. Of feeling old. Of being limited in my body. I get tired of not 'fitting' places. I get tired of struggling to do basic daily tasks easily. I get tired of feeling deprived and out of it.

But I heard Tom Petty once say he was not going to bemoan getting old because the alternative was worse. (dying) And I have to keep thinking of this in those terms.

When I quit struggling, trying, failing, beginning again- then I won't be ABLE to do any of that. I'll either be dead or maybe I'll be in a care facility where people have to take care of me because I can't. And THAT alternative is far, far worse than being tired of trying.

Getting healthier day by day and being the healthiest person I can be at any size.

WORDS OF WISDOM:

From Botzz: "Make the choice, refuse to accept a life that involves a cage made of flesh and the entire world gets as big as it was when we were children with new experiences around every corner"

From KimbeeJ16 - "One thing about plateaus...I ask myself this quite often...."what if this was IT...what if this was ALL I was ever going to lose....was it worth it? Will I give up and gain all that weight back again?" And the answer is always the same...a resounding "NO".
- Gosh I wish I'd listened to her!

Personal Information:
I live in Evanston, Wy. I've been married to the love of my life and best friend for over 30 years. We have 3 sons. I work full time as a Director in Adult Education.

Other Information:
I LOVE to travel. I enjoy cross stitch, genealogy research and reading as hobbies. I particularly like books about history. I'm a huge Outlander fan. I love rock and roll music.
