B. Mantra

I walk in beauty,
I know who I am.

I walk in peace,
I accept what must be.

I walk with power,
I will choose this very hour.

I walk in truth,
I act, I do.

I walk in the moment,
I live in the now.

I walk in beauty,
I know who I am.

Fitness Minutes: 1,145

My Goals:
I actually want to lose like 160 pounds. I'm not focusing on the weight loss tho'. I am now focusing on adding more physical activity to my day. Later I will focus on food. But, if I'm making a change to my life. I can take my time and do it right.

My Program:
Today (1/16/12), I took a quiz on making goals. So, as I saw what I should do, I decided on what I will do.

I have earned 13 points with this morning. I will come back to Sparkpeople throughout the day.

Am I ready to achieve my goals?

1. I want to lose a total of 161 pounds.
2. If I lose 2lbs a month. It will take me seven years to achieve my goal. I don't want it to take seven years. But, it's better than nothing. For now, I will work with it will take seven years. I will this year, focus on increasing exercise. I'll see what happens to my eating naturally BEFORE I move into a restrictive diet plan.
3. The only people I expect to share my weightloss goals with are sparkpeople. This is also the group I will turn to for support and encouragement.
4. I will reward myself for every 10 lbs lost. I will have special celebrations for 10lbs, 20lbs, 25lbs, 50lbs, 75lbs, 100lbs, 150lbs and for achieving my goal weight of 148lbs.

Personal Information:
I'm a single mom of an eight year old boy. I live with my mother who suffers with chronic pain.

I turned 40 this year and right now, I am really hating my life. Joining Sparkpeople.com is one of the (many) steps I am taking to get the life that I want.

Other Information:
My tracker focuses on sparkpoints and not pounds lost because, as long as I am gaining sparkpoints, I have a chance of losing weight. And, seeing that I haven't lost any weight causes me to become discouraged and quit.

    "The Fountain Of God"

    "We can truly be at peace
    In the shadow of His wings
    There we find release for our souls
    From life’s many stressful things
    He gives to us new strength
    When we are feeling weak
    And leads us beside the fountain that flows
    From heaven to the valleys so deep
    Where we can wade in His blessings
    Immersed in His Spirit divine
    Finding true refreshment from God
    For our bodies, our souls and minds"
