Hello,
I'm here because I want to be healthier and enjoy my youth with a wonderful new body! I survived...yes SURVIVED a bad marriage! As I was celebrating I looked at my body and actually felt like I was looking at old battle scars. I couldn't believe how I'd turned to food in order to cope. I couldn't believe that I hadn't noticed (or accepted) that I really looked like this. My final wake up call came when my children's pediatrician told me that if I'd care of myself like I take care of my children nutritionally, I would be at my goal weight.

It's true because I have taught my children to be healthy and make good food choices. (I will boldly say to anyone that fat children are a sign of bad parenting. It is no different than children who misbehave all the time--step up and do your job). They are now 3 and 5 and I need to stop talking and lead by example. I am up for the challenge and cannot wait to stop hiding behind all this extra baggage. I have decided to have an attitude of gratitude and enjoy the beauty in everything around me. I am such a precious jewel and very much worth it (thank you JO*ANNE*IE!)

A Dieter's Prayer:

I Praise You for My Body

Dear God,

As You know, some days I wish
I looked different than I do.
How good it is to be reminded, Lord,
that You had me--exactly this me--
in mind long before I came to exist!
So today I present myself to You
with a grateful heart.
Help me to be a good steward of my body.
Because You designed it,
I want to celebrate, nurture, and respect it.
By Your power at work in me,
I praise You for every molecule, gene, and freckle!
Amen.
