Annie - My Sweet Girl
My name is Karen. I have too much weight currently on a 5'-1" frame. I'm generally happy, and logical. I enjoy living most everyday. I chose to be happy because, being unhappy really stinks!
My health goals are weight loss and increased muscle!! And to feel and look great, too!
I am looking to step out with a different education options, and turn my career into a whole new direction.
I am working part-time. I was diagnosed with diabetes in February.
Smile and Laugh everyday.
To look and feel great, and proud of the way I'm taking care of myself.
Small steps.. build momentum .... CHARGE!
1) Adjust beverages, no more than 2 Diet pops a day, increase water.
2) Track food.
3) Start with Strength and Isometric exercises.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold. - Maurice Setter
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."
"The true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him no good." - Ann Landers
One of my favorite thoughts, when trying to decide if I should do / try something is: "What is the worst thing that could happen?" If the worst thing is temporary embarrassment, someone could say no, etc. I go for it. If it's going to put me in debt, do harm to someone, end the world, etc. I stop.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
It will make or break a company...a church...a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
