There has to be some reason that I keep failing to reach my weight loss goals. No one wants to lose the excess weight more than I do, but it just does not happen. I now have 40+ lbs to lose depending on what chart you go by. 11/16/2014

“TAKE ACTION! Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals!
If somebody was watching your day-to-day behavior, would they be able to see what you’re working towards; what your goals are?
If the answer is no, FIX IT!”

“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today. Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem.
Go for the love. You will never be sorry.”

PS: Portia, I'm really glad you want to join me on my 90 Day Challenge and will take pictures too! So proud of you for going out of your comfort zone here. I love it that you realize your poor body image could be contagious to your dear grand daughter. Here's to stopping the cycle!
