Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I want my experience to help others, and I know that I will learn from others. I've always considered loosing weight a personal and private issue....How's that working for ya? It's not. So do the opposite for a different outcome right? Right. And so here I am.
To be healthier and physically happier because I'm feeling better.
To encourage others with the progress and success God helps me attain.
Changing my brain.
Changing my physical activities.
Changing my eating habits.
Changing my negatives to positives.
I'm from Detroit, have been Baptist from Birth, have my AA Degree, teach teens at Grace Baptist, sing in the choir, love my family, love my friends, love to laugh, and will have that on my gravestone some day....no time soon, and purple is my favorite color, because it is the color for royalty and I'm the child of the King.
I quilt by hand, read the classics and historical wartime fiction, write articles, and working on two books for publishing, journal, volunteer with the American GI Forum, I'm somewhat of a movie buff, Saving Private Ryan was life changing for me, and Tom Hanks is my favorite actor. Hate to clean the house, love chocolate too much, and type 65 wpm. Is that enough info about me? (tee-hee-hee)

Thank you guys for the welcome (Hadydadubr, Starstina). My view of my weight has been developed over time because of a poor self image, an ex husband obsessed with stick figured women and not afraid to let me know about it on a daily basis, and eventually my lack of health and sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I'm 42 and am beyond the pressure of the world, but if I don't feel good, which lately has been all the time, I begin to mentally break down and fall back into negative thinking. It's a battle to stay on top of my own self-talk and make sure it's positive. So yesterday and today are good days, because I overcame my negatives and made them positive.
