Hi, thanks for dropping by. I'd love to hear from you and hopefully decide to help each other out on our weight-loss journeys. I know we can do it as long as we stay focused on our goals and follow our plan every day... one day at a time.
I have spent the last 10 years living with chronic pain and, as you can see, I sat and home a lot and tried to eat myself happy.
My career involves me motivating others to improve their relationships or if I am not able to save it I help them get to the point where they are not just surviving, but thriving... yet as the photos show I got too discouraged about my own life and sort of gave up on myself.
Well, now I am finally serious and ready to get my thin and sexy self back. My pain is being managed, pretty much, So I can move around more and life is coming back under my own control. It feel so great!
I have a little grandson that I want to be around a long time for, and since I am single... I I am getting thin and healthy again!
My goal was to lose at least 40 pounds, maybe 50, and then hopefully find my special someone!
I have lost 10-15 of those pounds so far! (depends when I get on the scale)
As crazy as it sounds, my doctors have told me that I am no longer even allowed to go swimming for exercise - I can try to do water aerobics or walk short distances, no more. So, with my desire to lose weight, I now spend a lot more time using my chi machine. Along with it adjusting one's core the movements also help in weightloss due to the swimming type of movement it helps the body perform.
I live in Montreal, Quebec. I have two adult daughters, a son-in-law, and a three year old grandson. I had to stop working and am now collecting (physical) disability.
I used to be a self-employed Family Life (Relationship) Coach at the little business, Divorce Support Plus, that I founded in 1999.

This is what I think of you !
WINNERS take chances. Like everyone else, they fear failing, but they refuse to let fear control them.
WINNERS don't give up. When life gets rough, they hang in until the going gets better.
WINNERS are flexible. They realize there is more than one way and are willing to try others.
WINNERS know they are not perfect. They respect their weaknesses while making the most of their strengths.
WINNERS fall but they don't stay down. They stubbornly refuse to let a fall keep them from climbing.
WINNERS don't blame fate for their failures nor luck for their success.
WINNERS accept responsibility for their lives.
WINNERS are positive thinkers who see good in all things.
From the ordinary, they make the extraordinary.
WINERS believe in the path they have chosen, even when it's hard, even when others can't see where they are going.
WINNERS are patient. They know a goal is only worthy as the effort that is required to achieve it."
YOU ARE A WINNER!!

HELLO MY DEAR FRIEND, JUST WANTED TO SHARE THIS GREAT POEM I FOUND WITH YOU ALL..
Anything is Possible
If there was ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that's your inspiration,
something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
Because with an idea,
determination, and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect,
and your heart, guide you.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
(WE CAN LOSE THIS WEIGHT) WE ARE A TEAM...LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!! STARTING NEXT WEEK LETS KICK IT UP!! HUGS SONIA:)
IF YOU NEED A BUDDY I AM A SPRAK MAIL AWAY!!
