"If you are tire of starting over, quit giving up."
That pretty much sums it up. I'm back. Recommitted. Recommitted in December. I want a jumpstart on all the January resolution makers. Losing weight isn't about having a resolution to talk about. It is about saving my life. I am not willing to give into diabetes without a fight!
New Mantra: Think fit! Get fit! Stay fit!
Quote I found 9/15/12:
Never give up on a dream just because it will take time to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway. ~ Earl Nightingale
I go up.... I go down. I get stressed and miss exercise sessions. I am the queen of procrastination. But, everyday is a new day and everyday is a new opportunity to begin again.
1) Keep it simple.
2) Exercise at least 5 day a week. Something, anything everyday.
3) Be able to fit into the entire wardrobe that I have packed away in boxes. (2 sizes smaller)
4) Stay the course. Write, read, stay motivated to continue on a healthy path.
5) Have fun! We only get one go around. I want to enjoy it!
LOTS of veggies, fish and lean meats!
Oh, and bananas. Because, I love my morning banana!

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
~ Mark Twain
Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.
~Cherokee Indian Proverb
Do what you can to show you care about other people, and you will make our world a better place.
~ Rosalynn Carter
Never doubt that a small group of dedicated people can make a difference. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
~ Margaret Mead
Imagine what it would have been like if, from the moment you were born, you had been told how beautiful you really are.
One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.
~ Barbara Walters

I am grateful for yur friendship and I truly value it. You are God's gift to me which I cherish. So this morning I said this prayer so I will be a good friend to you:
Help me, O God, to be
A good and true friend.
To be always loyal, and
Never to let my friends down;
Never to talk about them behind
Their backs in a way in which I
Would not do before their faces;
Never to betray a confidence or
Talk about the things about which
I ought to be silent;
Always to be ready to share
Everything I have;
To be as true to my friends
As I would wish them to be to me.
This I ask for the sake of You who are
the greatest and the truest of all friends,
For your love’s sake, Amen.

Flowers need time, sunshine and patience to grow. Likewise, friendship needs love, understanding and honesty to grow. And friends are like flowers, they add beauty and meaning to your life. Thank you for adding beauty & meaning to my life.

love like you’ll never be hurt,
sing like no one is listening,
and live like it’s heaven on earth.”
Have a Wonderful Day…!!!
