The Struggle Within
Hi - I live in Texas and single, no kids. I am ready to lose weight. I've tried so many things, yo-yo dieted myself up and down the scales. BUT this time will be different. I'm determined. I'll have good days and bad too. But I will not let the bad ones get me down. I've had a few very hard years, but want a brand new start to my life.. I want to live again!
Copied from another Spark Page, I pray everyday now:
I surrender my body and my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess and unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy and balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health and life energy. Finally, teach me to love my body and to care for it from this day forth. Amen
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most...We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson, American author and lecturer
Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.
- John Heywood, sixteenth-century English poet
In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Fall seven times, stand up eight.
- Japanese proverb
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
A big shot is a little shot that kept shooting.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
- Anatole France
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
One must eat to live and not live to eat.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
- David O. McKay
Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.
- Charles Reade
That first peak is the best place to pause and look back, to see if you took the easiest route, to learn the lessons from the first climb. And it is the best place to examine the terrain ahead, to change your plans and goals, to take a deep breath and begin climbing again.
- By Michael Johnson
To learn to like myself and be good to me.

Hi Kat...so good to see someone I knew back then...wow almost 4 years here. I just got upset when I realized that I had only lost 4 pounds in one month, even though I was doing everything right. I found out that my scale was 10 pounds off in the minus column and when I weighed in at another scale, which was supposed to be exact, I had not lost as much as i had been thinking,..so I left and gave up and had Burger King for lunch and went downhill from there. I was up to 276 and lost 18 lbs. this time around in 2 months. I figured that I have to lose it and cannot do it on my own, but SP really truly helped as I was afraid to cheat on my diet cause I have to report everything in here on my food tracker...lol...so here I am...250 lbs and back to my main means of support, now...Need the encouragement....good luck to you, too

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
Happy FOURTH OF JULY America is ruled by the sign of Cancer. We are Baseball and Apple Pie, and America feeds and fights for the underdog all over the world.
Sun in Cancer: Cancer is a good sign for a woman to be since it is the sign of the mother. Cancer gets along with Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces, Virgo and Capricorn. Cancer can have problems with her breast. She loves to save for a rainy day and she can keep secrets.
You live though your emotions and feelings and can't be reasoned with when you're upset. It's hard for you to separate your feelings from your thoughts. You're mothering, sustaining and nurturing, with a strong attachment to your mother and your home. You have a highly developed protective and defensive instinct about material and domestic security. You feel complete when you're able to lavish protectiveness on your family and you'll do whatever is necessary to establish and maintain that security. You tend to retreat inside yourself when you feel threatened in any way. You're often at the mercy of your moods, which are subject to change due to the atmosphere around you, which you absorb without realizing it. You need to control the tendency to moodiness, intolerance and excessive emotions. You suffer from emotional insecurity until you center yourself beyond your ego/ personality. Everything you do is latent and hidden: no issue is clear or direct, not action is forthright or direct. You are extremely intuitive and psychic and your first instincts are usually right. You're extraordinarily sensitive and fear ridicule. When you're hurt, you may behave in a nonsensical manner and, at times, you can be extremely childish and stubborn. You seek sympathy from others and don't realize how self-centered and selfish you can be. You appear gentle and tranquil, but your inner thoughts are difficult to understand, even for you. You're well intentioned, but emotionally vacillating. You have a deep sense of responsibility to others. Physically, slow energy flow can make you lazy and you'll have poor circulation later in life. Due to your powerful imagination, all thoughts of illness may manifest as illness. You'll suffer from ulcers and digestive problems if you don't discuss things that worry you. You must be first with those you love or you're unhappy, and you keep a tenacious hold on loved ones. You're concerned about what others think of you and can have a great deal of personal vanity about your appearance. You can be quite egotistical and won't joke about yourself. You're neat and clean and dislike any activity that creates a mess. You seek to avoid any type of discomfort at all costs. You're diplomatic, have an excellent memory and love to roam. You seldom fail to achieve your goals even if you have to be manipulative. At times, you may shun responsibility but can be punctual, exact, and efficient as required. You're a master of passive resistance and hate being told what to do or how to do it. You tend to live in "the good old days." As a parent, you're warm and loving, but can be smothering and refuse to let your child grow up. Your effort to keep your family together may actually drive them apart. As a child, you're tender, sweet, loving, helpful, extremely affectionate and easily hurt. It's better to discipline a Cancer child by appealing to the home-loving instinct. Sensationalism can hurt your sex life. You need to add reason and discrimination to your life and cultivate courage to say "Yes" and "No" at appropriate times.
