Mary's Journey

My starting weight many years ago was 308. I have to remember how far I have come. I am in this for the long-haul.

The problem most of us- especially women, is that we look at our imperfect bodies and find all the things we wish were better. I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on?

Not any more. I am ...

I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on?

Not any more. I am determined to keep going, even when I have less than perfect days or weeks or months. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. This is a fitness program, not a contest.

God is for me, so who can be against me?

Good Evening emoticon

Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring! Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem.... emoticon

Spring of Life

When winter days give in to spring
and trees begin to bud
I can see all God handiwork
from the grass to the stars above
The joy and warmth the daylight brings
as the birds sing songs of praise
for they are also happy
for the earth that God hath made
and when the coolness of the evening comes
and the dusk gives way to night
we close our eyes and say dear Lord
thank you for the beauty of life.
