Hi my name is Melanie,

I never want to stop learning how to become a better me.
I need to make changes in my life, not only for health reasons, but for my Quality of life.

What I'm now learning is: It takes time and patience!

Each day brings a new begining:
Each day a new choice to make things right :
I must Eat something at each meal with nutritional value and Exercise Is Key.

Balance-Is what I'm really searching for with my body...

I tend to want to see and get results overnight:
For myself, with my emotions, my weight.
It's not happening over night Period!

I need to Stay Positive over my weight.
The real me is hidden behind all of my weight gain.

I'm an emotional eater and I need to learn those triggers that keep me going down the wrong path. It's hard.
(learn from them)

1. Stop going with the flow of the majority in regards to eating habits.
2. Deal with my issues in a different way. (not by eating) Hard one
3.When upset. stop using food for a substitute for emotional love.
4. Stop drinking Soda.

I can except that I gained weight over a period time,(years)
So I need to learn patience with it coming off.

My weight issues, Is the one thing I'm in control of, and "I" can change.

I look forward to your support. (need buddies)

I want do everything I can to make myself proud!
I have the POWER within me.

P-Pride- is within your self
O- Optimistic, it will happen!
W-Watch what fuels your body
E-Exercize-I'm getting Stronger!
R-Revision of this body-working on it
"Balance", "Movement", "Fexibility"

"The task ahead of you is never as great as the Power within you"

Very important to me: Your life is a lesson-God is going to show you the way, The path isn't always easily seen or often easy,
Have faith.

Since 2003-*My Life Changed at the age of 41 Stroke/Coma/Seizures/clotting disorder/Heart and More... Complicated.
Relapse-11/ 2007

    Those who succeed are the ones who look in the mirror and see no change, but continue anyway knowing they'll get there in time.
