In 2012, I decided to get healthy. For many reasons, I did not reach my goal of losing 100 pounds plus. I have lost and kept off 25 of these pounds. Now it is time to get serious and to look to the future. The future being to become healthier. Fortunately, I have no medical issues in spite of being obese (no diabetes, no high cholesterol etc.). The medical issues I do have existed before I became obese. Since turning 60 (two years ago) I find it is even more difficult to lose the excess weight, however I will do this as I do not want to develop more medical issues. In order to do this, I will rely on my Heavenly Father to give me the strength to stay focused and on track while I do the actual work. I believe that He and only He can get me through this journey. I believe this as each time I try to go it or do it on my own I end up discouraged and overwhelmed. When I ask Him for strength I continue to forge ahead. So having said this, No More Looking Back Only Looking Forward, Stay tuned for my progress.

    hi .... thanks for taking the time to read & comment on my blog.

    thank you Lynn, for your comments on my blog. The class I'm taking is COMM 100 Introduction to Speech Communication and as part of our final grade, we have to deliver a 5 to 8 minute speech on the topic of our choice.

    In one of the chapters of our textbook, the authors talk about how attractiveness is a key factor in relationships .... whether personal or on the job, so that's what I'm referencing.

    you pointed out an awkward sentence in the speech & altho I've tried 2 or 3 different ways to fix it, i'm just not able to come up with something better. maybe i just step away from it for a day or so ....

    appreciate your feedback very much! Marie

    Sorry so slow thanking you for the goodie. As you know from my post life has been chaotic. Thanks though because I always know even when I am off I can think of all of you and being praying in like spirit and know I can jump right back in when I am back. That is something to be thankful for.
