I am learning so much about myself through this weight loss experience...for instance, "follow through" is a character trait I really need to work on! I've started off well this year, completing a major goal I had, so I know I can do it. Slow and steady is the way I'll approach the weight loss, doing things I know will work (because they have!): tracking food, daily exercise, and wise food choices. Adding stress relief to the mix in the form of daily yoga practice and prayer and reading time as well should help to keep me relaxed and focused on the important things.

I'm learning that life is a series of chaotic events that leave you thankful for the calm, easy times that you might otherwise take for granted. I'm consciously seeking more peace and less chaos.

    Hey Lady........so glad to find you on here. Make sure you friend my page as well. You are doing awesome on this program. I was doing good right up until we were having the glass studio done and my mom was coming to town. But I'm back now.

    Your progress is really inspiring! YOu are doing a great job. WOW is all I have to say. I used to work the night shift and it does make it hard. I used to exercise as soon as I got home from work because I would still be pretty energetic, then I would shower and go to sleep afterwards. Hope you can find a way because whatever you are doing seems to be working for you.
