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.

    Thank you so much for your sweet words of understanding and support at my Blog, regarding my husband's decisicion and the feelings it brought up. I really appreciate it and value it!!!! You Spark my night!!!

    I talked to my husbasn about my plans, but it seems that he does not car, he just answered, OK.

    I will travel with my youngest daughter to TX, next Saturday, June 9, so I will take those 2 weeks to seek God's guide and help.

    Again, thank you, I really appreciate it!!!!
