Hi, I''m a mom of 5, ages 20-10. And I''m working on making healthy choices for the rest of my life. Right now it''s really challenging with 5 kids that I homeschool and work fulltime as a home health nurse, This has been a really tough battle trying to lose the extra pounds from last pregnancy almost 10 years ago! But the last 2 months I feel I''m finally reaching the other side of this battle. Meaning I''ve really been focusing on my self talk and stopped beating myself up for the occasional mistake and when the scale doesn''t say what I want it to. It''s been an uphill battle but I''m making progress. My mantra these days is "Focus Fox!" And I must say its working. And I''ve given myself permission to take however long to reach my ultimate goal. (But I am hopeful that by this time next year July 2016, I will have reached the ultimate goal of a size 8 and I''m under 25% body fat scale goal 140-150) its all about baby steps, because each step adds up.

    "I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step.
    If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
    In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking."
