Hello! from Rochester, NY. Knowing we are all here for weight, I'm sure the question begs as to how I came to be here? For me, I went back to school to embark on a new career path in getting that degree I always wanted. Studying kept me from being active in the great outdoors like I used to be. Eating while studying is definitely not a good combo without the exercise part. Before I knew it, the weight had piled on. NOW, it's coming OFF, OFF, OFF!! *grins

Remember Dream BIG! Know that ANYTHING is POSSIBLE. Its never too late to follow your heart. Hey I went back to school in my 40's. If I can do it and others can, so can you! God has a way of opening doors when you trust Him with your heart's desires! I did with mine.

Favorite quote: 'You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.' ~ Richard Bach

I can tell you when you succeed in accomplishing your dream whether it be going back to school, dieting or running a marathon, no matter how difficult or how hard you worked, its a G R E A T feeling! We CAN do it!!
