I have decided to put myself out there, be vulnerable and trust this leap of faith will lead something great. At this point I have not left my home for more than 2 years and not worked in 7 years. I weighed about 300 lbs when I was 18, kept gaining through my 20's until hitting 600 lbs at 30, now at almost 40 I am getting healthy. My highest weight was in 2012-2013 when I weighed between 700-800lbs, I lost some weight and as of January 2015 weigh 590lbs. God bless!

Finally it's Summer! We've all been waiting for it. Some fun in the Sun....but, what are we to do if the cold is still hanging around?

It doesn't mean that we should jump off the wagon, stop exercising and start eating whatever we want. A healthy, calorie-moderated diet and regular physical activity are essential for physical and mental health. We can still practice self-acceptance while continuing to work toward our goals.

We can exercise in the house, use Spark People's exercise video's, dance our way to fitness and so much more. Just don't give up and let the blues slide in and up set your balance.

I have faith in you. emoticon Let's get creative!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~"A SMILE"~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

Did you know working out comes in many forms, and not all of them will leave you breathless and drenched in sweat? “Exercise doesn’t have to be spending an hour at the gym. Just get moving,” even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. “Take a dance class, go for a hike, walk the dog, or vacuum your house. It all counts!” So, yes, those late-night solo dance parties where you pretend you’re Beyoncé or Rita Hayworth are well worth it. Just get your body moving. Before you know it, you will have started a work out routine!

Let's be realistic. You won't drop two jean sizes in a day.
You won't lose 50 lbs. in one month.
You're going to binge every now and then.
You will go a day or two without working out.
Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there.
You're going to try new techniques, and they're aren't going to work.
You're a human being. You're going to fail.
But nothing great is accomplished without a few obstacles.
So, when you come to those obstacles,
tell yourself "I CAN DO IT," and JUST KEEP GOING!!!
