If it is to be, it is up to me!

I have always been the chubby sister and fat friend growing up. I started feeling self conscious about myself in grade school and I adapted the nasty habit of eating to hide my feels. As the years went by so did the yo-yo diets. I have lost weight in the past but always gained it back and then some.:(

I was 230 at my heaviest two years ago and on my wedding day (19 years ago) I was 165. I want to be at a healthy weight for my 20th anniversary 2011.
My 15 year old son is my biggest inspiration. He has lost 40+ pounds since Jan 2010 by setting goals and exercising daily. He encourages me to get active and to really watch what I put in to my mouth. Then there is my wonderful husband who has lost 77 pounds and is maintaining his healthy weight and life style. We have been walking 3-4 evenings together and he is a great motivator.

"Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."

"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Though no one else can guarantee your success, you can guarantee it by making the commitment to do whatever you must do.
You can guarantee it with your intention, your focus, your action and your persistence.
Today, tomorrow, in any place, whatever the situation, you can make a difference, for your own life, and for your world.
Grab that opportunity, make the most of it every chance you get, and you'll guarantee your own success."
