Not Quite Alone in the Biggest Little City

I stumble, I fall, I pick myself up and do it all again.
I fear, I fail, I try once more until I get it right.
I try, I learn, I succeed when I've failed again.

There is nothing really to me. I'm here, like most everyone else, to lose some weight, gain some self-confidence and knowing that I will fail at least seventeen times before finally getting it right.

I do this not only for myself, but for my daughter who I refuse to have follow in my footsteps of over eating, sloth and whatnot. In my health I hope that her health will be learned.

I am a rambling one who will talk your ear off if you let me. Many of my blogs do just that with a tinge of humor, sarcastic though it may be. Enjoy them, all.

If you still have questions, concerns, complaints, compliments or anything of the like, be sure to send a message or leave a comment. I welcome them all.

Update: 6/14/11

I am starting anew with Spark People after being away due to injury. I am trying to find new motivation for eating right, exercising, which if any of you were here before, know that I HATE to exercise. I have a new strategy for what I will do and how I will accomplish my short term and long term goals.

I do know that I am tired of looking at myself in the mirror and seeing nothing but a fat, lazy, whale of a woman when I could be so much more... I mean less, than what I am. I feel as though my body is spiraling out of control, but I will NOT let it. I will pick myself back up again, start over from square one and work harder than I did before, because let's face it, I'm starting over because I didn't work hard the last time.

So here I am picking myself back up after a HUGE fall (literally) and dusting myself off and making another go of the Spark People journey with the help of Weight Watchers and my mother.

I have said before that motivation must come from within, and though I still believe that, I certainly welcome motivation from other Sparkers. Feel free to leave a message or comment.

Happy Sparking!

Update 9-9-12
I've been away from this site due to loss of internet, but now I'm back, and I'm more motivated than ever. I picked up a new hobby in archery shooting a 40lb pull recurve. I can feel it already in my shoulder, neck and arms. No, not a very cardio workout, but strengthening, heck yes! I'm starting out again with min goals and I'm lighter this time around than when I left, so that is always a good thing.

Now, where did I leave that no soda goal tracker....

Update: 11-6-13
Ugh... Still trying to get things back together. All of the weight that I lost has come right back on. It's been difficult making time for everything.... oh who am I kidding. I got cable along with internet when I moved, and I've been addicted to the idiot box.... Bleh....

My Goals:
I guess the only goals I have are to lose the weight so that I'll feel better about myself as well as have more energy.

My Program:
It's nearly 3am and I am trying to get motivated to be back on this page. I have done updating and posted new pictures. I am hoping that the new scenery will give me some of the much needed motivation I need.

Personal Information:
I have found some new hobbies and revisited some old ones. I am glad to finally be able to pursue archery. I have found it to be very relaxing for the mind.

Other Information:
I have been able to get out more often to do things that I like such as singing karaoke and going to the archery range. I am not letting poor excuses stop me anymore.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, you are right hitting the bullseye does take practice! One summer of my childhood I did archery and got a bullseye, I was ecstatic! All the best to you!
