Getting Better with Age

I have long term and short term goals. Short is to lose around 6-8 lbs a month. Long is to get below 200 lbs. I'm 49 and I want to get healthier so I can enjoy the later years of my life. I have been over weight all my life. I have a new look on life. I'm not as good as I want to be, but I'm better than I use to be.

A Spark Friend suggested I read this daily. So until I get my workout room finished and get on the wall, I felt inclined to include it here.

I see myself as a better person and I EXPECT others to see me this way, because I know I DESERVE it. I won't accept any less, especially from myself.
I may fall, but I will not fail. I will see my mistakes as what they are,"Oops Days", and I will continue on my journey of being a more healthy person.

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” - Anonymous

The road to success is not straight: there is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, red lights called enemies and caution lights called jobs. But if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, a driver called YOURSELF, you will make it to a place called SUCCESS!

Have a wonderful day emoticon

Help Me Thanksgiving Day Prayer

O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer,
And remembering,
help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
Amen.

-Samuel F. Pugh
