Just Me...Kelly D. That says it all.

I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards.

- Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President

Taking two steps forward

Slow and steady has not always been an inspiring concept. It's not as sexy as speed and sharp turns of direction. But it may be just the thing to keep you from running out of gas, while still moving you forward. Abe is telling us that the most important thing is to keep walking forward, no matter how slowly. Sometimes slowness can be frustrating. You might become impatient; you might get discouraged with a setback. But a setback doesn't have to set you back. Simply using it as a learning opportunity can leapfrog you ahead again. From now on, try paying attention more to your direction and less to your speed. Be patient, focus on a little bit at a time, and soon enough, you'll be further than you ever thought. Besides, it's a good bet that by always looking forward, Abe rarely looked back in regret.


Starting weight=195
For the past couple of years I have been gaining and losing the same 5-10 pounds. I am going to focus on eating healthy and exercising to lose the weight and keep it off!

I will no longer beat myself up when I fail at something. But I will also give it 110% instead of only half doing it on some days.

Reward System:

I believe it is better to reward than punish...therefore...I will reward myself with every 5 pounds I lose.

    Kelly, you've had such a wild ride this session. So many highs and lows. You have been a wonderful daughter at a time when it was needed the most -- you were courageous and loving. Many blessings to you, dear one. Thank you for being one of our leaders this time.
