I am 63, married, with 7 kitties as my kids. I had lost some weight but then fell off the wagon. I'm back on track now. I have had a weight problem since about 5th grade. Every year I kept getting heavier. I eat complusively & binge. When I graduated high school I wore a size 20 dress. My weight fluctuated up & down all my life. 7 years ago I quit smoking. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. I feel that I am losing out on doing a lot of things cause of my weight. I have high blood pressure, arthritis & thyroid disease. I look at myself in the mirror & I don't recognize myself. I look like I'm wearing a fat suit. I don't like seeing myself at this weight. With God's help, I can do it.

Don't Quit

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

Only One Pound

Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat,
And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
Happy Days!!!
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

My Goals:
Now is the time to do something about my weight. It's causing me medical problems as I get older. It's too hard to get around. I have trouble walking & get out of breath, have aches & pains, back aches...arthritis doesn't help either. Last yr. I developed high blood pressure. My 1st big goal is to get under 400 lbs. & eventually get off the high blood pressure medication. I want to buy clothing off the rack & not have to order the largest size from the woman's catalog.

My Program:
Following Weight Watchers. Seems I love to read any diet book that comes out. I am trying to eat healthy & get some type of excercise in a few days a wk. I have several Leslie Sansone walking DVD's that I am now using for exercise. I slso use some hand weights.

Personal Information:
One definition of insanity is: Doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.

"My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today."

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
