MY Twins Khyree and Jaiden
My husband Fabius with my oldest son Elijah (8)
I am a 31 year old woman who has struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. I've tried every diet under the sun, with that said I do not believe diets are the answer. Only a permanent change in eating and exercise habits can make the difference for the long term. I have had success in the past with Weight Watchers but have gained most of the weight back:( I want to get healthy for my 3 little boys who I love very much. I'm always in need of some support and would like to help support others trying to get healthy and lose weight.

Quotes I'm going to refer to....
"Fall down seven times, Stand up eight."
Japanese proverb Thanks Lisa for that one!!
"Embrace Change..Sometimes in
the winds of change we find
our true direction"
"Winners make things happen,
Losers let things happen."
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’.”
Mary Anne RadmacherHershey
"The future depends on what we do in the present."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
"Vision without action is a daydream."
"Even if your on the right track , you'll get
run over if you just sit there." Will Rogers
"The secret of success is having the courage
to begin in the first place"
"Take twice as long to eat half as much."
"One should eat to live, not live to eat."
Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again
""When one approach is not working to reach the desired goal, that's not a reason to abandon the goal. Instead, it is time to devise another approach."------Ralph Marston
"Never trade what you want the most for what you want at the moment"
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!

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
