"IF YOU ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS DONE, YOU'RE ALWAYS GOING TO GET WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS GOTTEN."
That is one of my favorite sayings. It is also my philosophy for this life change path I am on. I have changed everything about the way that I eat, what I drink, and even my physical activity. I was going strong for about 2 years, losing and shrinking, and then it happened, LIFE. I got derailed, and gained back 57 pounds !
I decided that if I am going to take care of anybody else I have to take care of me first. But do we really do that in LIFE? Maid, cook, launderer, taxi driver, referee, sounding board, personal assistant, as wife, mother, grandmother,daughter, sister, aunt and friend, that's what we are to our families. We are so much more than that. We must take care of ourselves before we can be any of that, or we won't be here at all.
I will, and have gone back to my healthy lifestyle. Eating what I should be eating and not what's available. Walking and exercising on a daily basis. Spending time with the Lord, and myself, learning and growing in more ways than the scale.
My new goals are simple:
I WILL eat fresh, or frozen fruits and veggies, whole grains, turkey, chicken and fish, nuts, seeds, and beans, eggs, limited dairy, and water.
I WILL get at least one hour of exercise a day not including my walks.
I WILL learn to say "no" if it is something that someone else can take care of, or can wait until I do me.
I WILL let go of any guilt I may have over the learn to say "no" goal.
I WILL not let the previous two derail me.
I WILL succeed at this life change journey that I am on.
EXCUSES ARE JUST LIMITS WE SET FOR OURSELVES, NO EXCUSES, NO LIMITS !
My goals are:
1) To change my lifestyle as far as the food that I put into my body .
2) To get my exercise(at least one hour a day).
3) To give God all the Glory !
3) To help motivate and inspire others to do what I'm doing.
I am following the You Are What You Eat Plan, by Dr. Gillian McKieth.
I have cut out wheat (gluten) ,most dairy,all sugar,and all refined whites and processed foods, from my diet. I'm eating more fish,chicken and turkey, fresh veggies,and fruits, and whole grains, and loving it. I drink 8 - 10 glasses of filtered or spring water a day.
My name is Sherry. I am from Seffner,Florida. I am 47years old with 226 pounds to lose when I started this journey. I walk every day(at least 30 minutes).I have a wonderful, very supportive husband of 16 years. I have 5 sons ages 23-27,with 8 beautiful grandchildren .
I love to cook. I collect cookbooks.
My favorite movies are Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, The Wizard Of Oz, A League Of Our Own, Forest Gump, and Just Cause.
I love all music because it all has a message. I prefer Gospel, Country Music, because they are the heart and soul of music.
I had taken classes to be a Natural Health Consultant, and Nutrition and fitness trainer, but got halted by life, and didn't finish. I am currently praying about finishing my education, in this field. Would you please pray for wisdom in this area for me?

Happy Birthday to You!!
Born today, August 22, you are not ruled by timidity or shyness, but there are situations in which you need to take a little time to get used to the fact that you are in the spotlight. You are certainly not one to crave or seek out that kind of attention, even though it is likely to shine on you throughout your lifetime. There are those who look upon what you are able to do as a kind of magic, but you know that it is merely a job, one that you do remarkably well, and in a style that is all your own. Still, you certainly appreciate the praise and admiration that you get simply by doing what you enjoy.
You are able to be quite disciplined, especially when it comes to planning and preparing a project. You will find yourself at sea if you are not allowed suitable prep time. You are often able to take a good idea and make it better.
Todays Leo Horoscope: You will be in a position to ask for more, but take care that you aren't unrealistic in your demands.
Hope your day is wonderful!
