I love the words to Tim McGraw's "How Bad Do You Want It?"....eatin', sleepin', dreamin' with that one thing on your mind....pretty much how it has to be until I reach my goal. I can't 'take a vacation' and give up on the process. If I do that, I will spin around in space until I manage to grab that rock again and get back down to business. I never did the story board thing, but lately I'm beginning to realize I need to do it to reinforce my vision (a picture paints a thousand words?). I'm down 52 pounds and stuck in a kind of 'holding pattern'. Maybe I needed to spin out for a while, but I'm ready to get back to it. Love this site, and thanks for being here Spark People.

Member Since: 3/1/2009

My Goals:
One goal:
Track that food. IF I BITE IT, I WRITE IT. And keep within those boundaries. Period. When I get there, I will work on other things, but for now, I am single minded about this.

My Program:
One day at a time...and staying faithful to my plan. Right now, that is all I am able to do. That is not all I WANT to do by any means, but that is enough for this former quitter.

Personal Information:
I may have the winter on my head, but the spring is still in my heart!(Thank you,Victor Hugo)
Since I have taken off 48+ pounds and counting...the world is looking like a much better place to live.

Other Information:
My 'choice' To Do list:
1. Don't be so critical of myself. I'm after all, only human.
2. Love and appreciate this is a gift.
3. Just be thankful for the problems...they come with a gift in their hands...and Thank You FATHER GOD!

    Of COURSE I'm your friend - any place - any time. I've struggled here so much under far less difficulties than you have but somehow I keep trying - all down to the great friends I've made and the encouragement they give me.

    Let me know how you get on with your walk in the hall - baby steps - it's all a question of starting and then keeping it going.

    Thank you so much for adding me as your friend! I have added you also! It is very important to have friends on SP to express your feelings whether they are good or (bad) cause we all have those days and here we are able to just be ourselves and get the love and support we need.
    Please never hesitate to yell if you ever need to talk or have a question, I am usually lurking someplace close by! LOL!

    Have a wonderful Day and Keep Smiling!

    Hi Donna,
    The porch is my sisters. Wish I had one like it. She is in Kansas.
    I need to redo my page as everyone mistakes it for my house.
