A new me.

I am 42 now, weighing more than I ever have. I have less energy than ever before and as a result of this weight am shor of breath doing simple tasks like stairs. I need to get back to exercising regularly so I can feel better about myself.

A New Years Quote to live by:

Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human. -Anthony Robbins

** Every Day Is Christmas **

Every day is Christmas when you have the kind of mind, That stores up all the goodness and the sweetness it can find. When you don't need an occasion, to spread a bit of cheer,
But just keep on a-giving, of yourself throughout the year.

Every day is Christmas, with a gaily wrapped surprise, When you've learned to see the friendship, in someone else's eyes. When you try a little harder, and complain a little less,
Holding fast to all the fervor of the faith that you possess.

Every day is Christmas, when you've found that you can be More concerned with words like "you" and less with "I" and "me." When it's fun to do a favor, and to lend a helping hand, When being understood means less, than when you understand.

Every day is Christmas, with a beauty deeply cast, When you find it doesn't matter, if you're first or if you're last. When you can face your conscience, and be glad of what you are, Then every day is Christmas, with a stable and a star.

Thanks for visiting my page and commenting on my blog. I struggle everyday but I keep trying. I was doing really good, lost 60 lbs. and it is slowly creeping back so I thought I had better do something. I don't like my pants squeezing the life out of me! Good luck to you on this journey, too. emoticon

Hi. Just wondering how you were doing after your surgery. I've been MIA, but I'm back on the wagon again. Hope all is well and you are doing great!

Sometimes I lose motivation when I feel tired and my limbs just don't want to work. You've been doing great with a 3 month anniversary. So what's eating you? Are you balancing your foods? When I eat more carbs, high glycemic index foods, I can feel like I'm crashing. Its the end of May and I'm nowhere on my diet. I should have lost the 60 lbs and didn't. Just went through a huge scare thinking I had endometrial cancer. I was focused on that. Been to a 10 day retreat with vegetarian food only and I still did not lose an ounce.

Its time to KICK START ourselves, again. Move more. Eat less. TRACK everything. Get a buddy to follow along with you. There's no food in my refrigertor since I went away. This morning I am going to buy dark green veggies/lettuces and fruit and track every mouthful I eat.

WE can do this. Will power. Determination. Our health is at risk. I found out I'm estrogen dominant. Coffee can contribute to this. Coffee also increases cholesterol.

Baby steps. Little changes. Take it one day at a time. I almost went to a fast food store last night on way home from acupuncture - 45 minutes from home and it was dark on the roads. I was starving. But I didn't. Willpower.

Visualization. Imagination of that slim body looking at you in the mirror.

Slipping on a two piece white bikini to swim in the turquiose seas with your healthy, fit new self. Now thats a vision!!

in loving kindness,
