The Cycle Ends Here

Obesity is expected of me as my whole family is obese. It's a deadly cycle, raised unhealthly, turned into football players, then in their thirties become obese. I've seen what that can do to a person. I dot believe in genetics. My family's effect had a headstart on me while I was a teenager pushing 300 pounds. Now I am catching up, weighing in at 203 pounds and in the best shape of my life. They cycle stops here.

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
-Unknown

Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane

Thank you for the excellent suggestions on my blog! I'm definitely going to try out setting my alarm earlier, because I think that will really help. Have a great day! :)
