I've been at this weight loss thing for about 32 years now. That's right, from the time I was 8 years old I have been painfully aware that I was a little bigger than those around me.
I'd lose the weight then gain it back. When you look at my pictures over the years you can tell when life was calm because I was smaller. When life brought hell...my weight went up proprotional to the hell that came my way.
About three years ago I stopped trying, I did not give up, I just realized that my problem was not losing weight because I had done it over and over again. Each time I lost weight I lived in fear of when the weight would come back...eventually it did. I realized my weight issue wasn't the weight it was something deeper that was being expressed via my weight gain. So I've spent the last couple of years with God's help, working on the real issues and understanding the things I've been running from.

I am so glad I stop to deal with the stuff, I am falling in love with myself and my body, as a result I want to do what's best for it. I am looking forward to this new journey and I'm looking forward to meeting some good folks along the way!

My Goals:
Running a 5K in April, 2012!

My Program:
My training for the 5K is helping stay on track with my exercise. I have been tracking my food daily. The food tracking has helped me make the necessary adjustments to how I eat. I just ordered the Sparks People Cookbook and I am looking forward to creating in the kitchen with that at my finger tips.

Personal Information:
Here is my favorite quote:

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson
