Hi, I'm Mistie. I'm 29 years old and have been struggling with my weight for almost my whole life. Although I did maintain a healthy weight through high school, I started putting on weight when I started having more health problem. My doctor put me on prednisone and my weight just sort of ballooned. Even when I came off the medicine I continued to eat the same and gain weight. My weight loss goal is challenged by the fact that I have a muscle disease (myasthenia gravis) which makes it difficult ...
Hi, I'm Mistie. I'm 29 years old and have been struggling with my weight for almost my whole life. Although I did maintain a healthy weight through high school, I started putting on weight when I started having more health problem. My doctor put me on prednisone and my weight just sort of ballooned. Even when I came off the medicine I continued to eat the same and gain weight. My weight loss goal is challenged by the fact that I have a muscle disease (myasthenia gravis) which makes it difficult for me to exercise. I do what I can when I can. I am determined to lose the weight and regain me.

I have some pretty big motivators in my life. I will be turning 30 in March, and I don't want to weigh this much when I enter a new phase of my life. Another motivator is the little girl in the picture. She is my best friends daughter. I'm her Aunt Mistie. She takes a lot of energy to keep up with. She also loves when I read to her, but my stomach gets in the way of her sitting in my lap while I read. I want to be able to read to her without any trouble.

When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.

ARE YOU STILL FOCUSED AND STICKING WITH IT?
WE MISSING YOU!

JULIE2BTRUE has lost her first 20 pounds, since starting over again!!!! THANK YOU, for your SUPPORT!!!!
********************************
Just 22 more pounds, and I can start where I left off, at 263. One of my goals is to fall below 200. It AMAZES me that I only have 86 pounds to lose, in order to achieve this.... (As opposed to the 106 that I started over with, over a month ago... GO ME)

And Julie says with a big smile, "I believe I'm going to make it, sweetie!"
Thanks again, Julie
