1/27/2008-- NEVER FORGET.
Shared Food Tracker
I am going to find myself! I know I'm in there, somewhere! ^.~
I have been gone awhile. Although I was able to keep most of the weight off, I seem to not be able to continue losing it on my own. So I'm back, and determined to reach my final goal.
I find it is harder to be careful with my consumption of food when I am with my family- We love to eat! But I will not fail.
If I can maintain, I will not have failed.
If I begin losing weight again, I will not have failed.
If I can accept that I am human, not perfect, and am allowed to make mistakes then I will not have failed.
I have already come so far-- I must never forget that. Every ounce, every millimeter lost is a success. I will not fail.
Some quotes..... because sometimes people say some smart things!!
Who am I?....I am the sum of the choices I have made thus far.....
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind. ~Santiz
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the target. O_o
It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.
Courage is when you stare your worst fear or biggest obstacle in the face and beat it. @.@
Sweet dreams are made of these..... hold your head up, keep your head up, movin' on... -Eurhythmics
Don't sweat the petty stuff! And don't pet the sweaty stuff...
There ain't much fun in medicine, but there's a heck of a lot of medicine in fun. - Josh Billings
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.- Albert Ellis
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. -Jack Kerouac
To be nobody but yourself--in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. - ee cummings
Live each day as if it is your last. One day you'll be right.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find they haven't half the strength you think they have. ^.^
Should you find yourself at a loss, wondering what life is all about and what your purpose is, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity to wonder.
Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, piss on it and walk away.
Why don't you take a good look at yourself and describe what you see, and baby do you like it? ...I believe it's all a state of mind. --Led Zepplin
We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once. - Nietzsche
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Gandhi
Tempus fugit (so) Carpe diem!
(Time flies so seize the day!)
Choose your destiny....Flawless Victory!-- Mortal Kombat
Be kind to unkind people- they need it the most.
You know you're an email-junkie when...
* You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop to check your e-mail on the way back to bed.
* You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
* You start using smileys in your snail mail.
* You check your mail. It says "no new messages." So you check it again.
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs
There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. -Lance Armstrong
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great. - Mark Twain
Without change something sleeps inside us and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
Duke Lito Artreides, Dune
What's the point of living if you can't feel alive?

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Let the snow fall deep, the rain drive down, and the wind buffet my cloak. I care not for I've a road worth walking! -Drizzt Do'Urden
To become the person I know I am on the inside. To feel better about myself. To be healthier!
To make my own destiny.
Cut fat and calories
Get it together!
Did I mention excercise?
I am using the spark philosophy to make much needed changes in many aspects of my life, not just weight loss.
Although the hamster wheel has been my friend, I'm now a free range hamster! ^.^
I am a nurse clinical educator by day; student working toward my Master's degree by night.
I have been married to my soul mate for 3 years (it took me awhile to find him!) and have a 26 year old son, a wonderful daughter-in-law, and an awesome granddaughter.
I am addicted to Heavy metal music, Anime, Murder mysteries and thrillers, and computer gaming. When not at work, I used to be found hanging around Diablo III, WoW, or Starcraft, ....... Now you'll find me out walking, hiking, at the gym, playing paintball, basketball... Who says a person has to act their age? ^.~

Thanks, Dizzy - you also reminded me to update this month's goals on my page. Yeah, I kind of like the running commentary myself - makes me remember what the past two years have been like - and when I compare the graphs to the months, it's pretty obvious when I've been doing the emotional eating thing! :)
Right now, I'm still struggling to keep the eating out under control AND get in the strength training despite the juggling of priorities that takes.
