I cannot go on another diet. The very thought sends me to the Entenmann's and Red Vine aisles. I am ashamed and embarrassed all of the time. I want to live & love life today not at some future date when I weigh the "ideal" amount.

September 15, 2008
Today I achieved my goal to have a healthy BMI. I am making food choices that honor my body, mind and spirit. I am getting at least 60 minutes of exercise, 6-7 times a week. I am getting resistance training in about once a week. I am steadliy accepting myself and slowly learning to love myself as I am.

Today I achieved my goal to lose 25#. Now my journey takes me to unchartered waters. Even though I have lost hundreds of pound over my adult life, I was never able to keep the weight off. With SparkPeople I have the power of thousands of like minded and like hearted people to help me succeed. That is why this time is different.

Personal Information:


Other Information:
A note about my username. My name is not Helen. Helen was my Mother's name. I wanted a user name that was a sort of Mantra for me while honoring her. So I thought of the expression "Come hell or high water" I'm going to find a way to take care of my body, mind and spirit. Thus "HelenHiWater" was created.

    Hi Rebecca, I fell off for several months but I'm finally back. It was fun swimming with you last year. If you ever want to do that again sometime, let me know. I just got back in the water, so I'm working up my stamina again. I saw your blog. Hope you are doing well and bouncing back from your obstacles.
