I have no personal words of wisdom and am still trying to find my footing in the area of healthy living, but I have a couple of favorite sayings:
You are the captain of your own ship (I'm sure someone famous said it, but I've been saying it my entire adult life--who knows where it came from?) and "Things turn out the best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out" (John Wooden? Art Linkletter?).
Given these two pearls of wisdom, I'm starting back on the journey I started so long ago. Here's to free will and making good choices.
Have fun and make those good choices!
I will shop for clothes in stores that don't necessarily specialize in "plus size". I will easily slip into and out of chairs without fear of "hip-stickage". I will be able to ride a bike, go for a walk, climb a hill, and dance, dance, dance without being winded quickly.
Updated 7/10/12: I work with a personal trainer and drop in on fitness classes at the gym in addition to treadmill, elliptical, and swimming for cardio. I work out between 3 and 5 days per week, and gave up "land and air meat" back in June, 2010. Not vegetarian, though, because I'm still eating fish. I also cut waaaay back on dairy, although have not eliminated it. Frankly, I love cheese.
I haven't had time lately, but when I do, I enjoy making jewelry, sewing, machine piecing and quilting (my fiance will actually go to fabric stores with me and not complain about being the only guy in the store!), photography, singing, volunteering at the Humane Society, movies, painting/drawing/sculpting/pottery, reading, peoplewatching, and just hanging out when the weather is nice.

Congrats on your loss, and I love your comment about not even used the potty yet! LOL When I weigh I'm always making sure not a drop of water has passed my lips, used the bathroom, totally nude!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. It's hard for most to stock a pantry with good food items, when there is other people involved. I live alone so I can do this. The good thing about healthy eating is some people don't want to do it. So your items should be safe. It's really cool to go in to both places this includes frig, and see nothing but healthy! I am doing one Nutri blast a day. In another week I am going to move to 2 a day. I want to build up to at least 4 a day and start my juice fast. Actually it won't be a juice fast, because I use the Nutri bullet and get all the vegetable and fruit in liquid form. The juicer leaves pulp, and a lot of nutrients in the pulp too!
At first, actually the first drink and I didn't fare well. But now I drink them so easily, and I found that I am in energy mode now, and get so much more done.

Thank you so much for giving me the love and support in my blog that I needed today. This journey is taking me through an emotional and psychological rollercoaster that I was only slightly prepared for. Based on your comment I think I should continue to be exactly who I am and those that know me and love me and know my heart will never take it the wrong way because I am a sarcastic, foul-mouthed, teddy-bear who is as loyal as they come and they will not think otherwise. Thank you so much for being there for me today.
