Hi, I've been overweight for a long, long time. I see very obese people in wheelchairs and wonder 'what came first, the obesity or a disability' I fear that if I don't lose weight now, I'll be in a wheelchair within a few years. I absolutely don't want that, so I'm dieting and exercising daily to do all I can to avoid it.

My word for 2015 is Courage . As part of a 'follow the star' Epiphany service at my church we were invited to pick a star with a word on it out of a basket--no peeking and no exchanging. The challenge was to post the star where it will be seen daily and to think about and pray about that word and what it means to us. I'm a little fearful of why I might need 'courage' this year but try to think positively about it. Last year my word was excitement. I liked looking for excitement in my life!

    Stumbling is not falling.
    ~Portuguese Proverb

    I know that stumbling feels bad, but keep on going ... you'll be so glad you did! And, you are a Shooting Star, so you really are a success!

    It’s not the mistakes in life that are important; it’s what we learn from them.
    ~Donna Guthrie

    So, what did you learn from your most recent mistake? How are you going to make it work for you TODAY?

    Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
    ~Mark Victor Hansen

    It's your journey ... you CAN do this!

    Walking: the most ancient exercise and still the best modern exercise.
    ~Carrie Latet

    How far will you walk today? What plans will you change to fit this walk in? You're going to be so glad you did!
