Blondes may have more fun...but red heads get things DONE!
Real women have curves!!!
Life is like wrestling a gorilla. You don't stop when you are tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired! Life is full of lots of gorillas.
I have wrestled with "the gorilla" of being overweight all my life. I have realized that it will always be part of my life, but I am not going to let it pin me down. I am struggling with a chronic disease, but it is not going to get me down! No matter what, when I am in good shape, my weight is down, everything is better. I am ready to stop the yo-yo roller coaster. It is time. I also do not want diabetes. My mother already has it. No thanks! So...here we go. I hope to give and get lots of support. Let's do it!!! I choose to have a positive attitude. Of course, I am not always happy and positive on the outside, but on the inside- I have inner peace! We have the power to determine how we respond no matter what happens!
Manage pain better
Get out of credit card debt- not sure this is possible, but what the heck...while we are shooting high...student loans, etc... UGH!
I am reading The Spark.
I plan to utilize short term goals to lose 10 lbs at a time in order to lose at least 100 lbs.
1. Sleep 8 hrs/night
2. Drink 8 servings of H2O/day
4. Cardio at least 10 minutes every day and 30 minutes 3 times/week minimum.
3. Track my nutritional habits and analyze them.
I am from Tennessee but now call Georgia home.
I am blessed by God!

I am a teacher, and I love it.
I love LIFE, and I like to LAUGH everyday.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference!
Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.

Who knew that healthy tastes so good! I hope your enjoying every bite. Keep up the best lifestyle and choices you are making. Don't sweat the small stuff - no diet police will follow you for enjoying some treats. Remember it is the overall picture that counts add in some nice long walks or play times with the kids. Life should be fun and exciting without the stress of what is on our dinner plates. Let's get back to living like kids. Take the time and watch the kids play - they run, jump, dance and laugh "just cause" without effort. We need to learn to so the same. Let's get started we can do this.
Turn up that music let's- pray, laugh, sing and dance "with" life and stay positive.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
