Brendon Ready for a walk
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I want to learn healthy eating and lose weight.
I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming but
There's a voice inside my head sayin,
You'll never reach it,
Every step I'm taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high
There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
The struggles I'm facing,
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I'm not breaking
The pain I'm knowing
But these are the moments that
I'm going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on,
1. exercise at least 5x's a week.
2. drink at least 4-6 glasses of water daily.
I'm a single Mom who raised my daughter Jessica who is also a single mom who is raising her son Brendon who is now 2.
I think I am raising both of them.
Brendon is the joy of my life and one of the reasons I want to get healthy. I want to watch him grow up and share in every important moment of his life.
I work in a day home with handicapped adults and that is very fulfilling. I am rewarded every day.
I am blessed to have so many wonderful friends and looking forward to sharing this weight loss journey.
It's not a diet, its my life. And my life is too important to take for granted anymore.

How much do you weigh? Here's my proposition/incentive for you to get to 199 lbs. You can't come down and I can't come up to NY until you lose enough weight to get down to 199. How's that for an incentive?! How much is that?
I will pay for the Y as your Christmas present. Let me know how much to send. kim

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the strugglers, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

Thanks for stopping by my blogs. I don't always have that much energy. It comes and goes. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
Well I finally got paid yesterday after I talked to you I got my paycheck in the mail. $1,000. Biggest paycheck I ever got. I grossed 1305 but take home was just a little over $1,000. So I should be able to start sending Dad and Mom the money I owe them on a regular basis.
Have a great vacation in West Virginia. You're always on vacation. (working vacation) I'm jealous. kim

Robin~~~~261~~~252.8~~~~252~~~~Lost 8.2 lbs
wow, that is great news! Looking forward to seeing your new weight on Sept 29th. But I disagree with your dietitian. I think people should weigh themselves once a week to see if they are on track or able to change track to do better. that's a long time not to know what your weight is. But good luck anyway. Maybe it is what you need! kim
P..s. next year this time, that number could be 108.2 lbs. You can do it!

I had Monday off because our company picnic is Friday and they pay us to go to that so they don't want to pay us more than 40 hours for a week including a picnic. Otherwise they would be paying us time and a half to go to the picnic. which some people are getting anyway because they have to work OT this week. We only have to go to the picnic for an hour or so and get paid for 8 hours so that's not too bad. kim
