I may not have chosen this fight, but it is a fight that i MUST fight. I am a strong WOMAN, so I embrace this fight with arms wide open. I am sure that this battle will take awhile to completely WIN. I WILL WIN this battle, no matter how long it takes me to. When I win this BATTLE, I know that I will be able to WIN whatever BATTLE that will come my way. I am a strong WOMAN. HEAR ME ROAR!!!!

As a matter of fact, I have been preparing for this BATTLE my whole life. All the battles won and lost have made me the woman I am today. I will not be discouraged. I will stay focused. I will be VICTORIOUS.

I used to be a girl who would back away from the fight. Years later I was weak, torn, brittle and in a dark place. Some spark came within my soul and gae me the strength to climb out of that hole. This spark gave me the strength to look at myself and my life. I didnt like who I had become and I for sure didnt like where my life was heading. To admit that did not like MYSELF and the way that I had been living was the hardest thing that I have ever done. It makes this battle to lose weight feel like a piece of cake.

I am now learning to love myself. This is half the BATTLE. I am learning to put myself FIRST for a change. I deserve that. I deserve to be number one.

For me these changes dont come easy. There is alot of baggage in me that I am trying to deal with. Slowly I am beginning to put my life together again. I would say "put it back together again", but I can't think of a single time when I felt like my life was together. It is time for me to get control of my life. It is time for me to make good decisions for ME. I deserve to be happy. I deserve to be loved. I am stong!!! I can do this!!!

    Let's commit today to get our bodies healthy and fit!
    How are you doing? Have you reached your goal? I'm still on this roller coaster. One day I do really well, then mess it up the next. I don't have a problem with fitness, it's the food I have a hard time dealing with, I LOVE TO EAT!! Lol. Why does everything have to taste so good?????????????? Stop by my page some time, I'd love to hear from you.

    Have a terrific Thursday.

    I've always liked this quote, it's so very true. I had a really relaxing weekend, hope you did too. But today it's back to the grind. Let's don't forget to get our bodies moving. I'm going to try for 15,000 steps today, join me if you dare.

    Hope you have a fantastic Monday, Fran!

    “There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.” ~Dr. Denis Waitley~

    No one can do this for us, so today we will accept the responsibility to make the changes in our lives that are necessary to get us to our goals. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
