..And i haven't met my goal..BUT I am still sparking and slow and sure wins the race.

This is a journey and a lifestyle..not a race or a short jaunt.

"Nothing tastes as good as thin feels."

This is the beginning of my journey. A journey in retrospect I wish I had begun sooner, but better late than never. I am a wife and a mom, a daughter, a sister and an aunt. I have wonderful support in my family and I want to be healthy for them as much as for myself. My husband tells me I am beautiful but I don't believe it and on this journey I want to learn to love me.

~I am learning to love myself and accept me for all that I am and all that I can be ....

~I am learning that there is no food whose taste is worth not living life as healthy as it can be�.

~I am learning to honor myself by choosing to be lean, strong and healthy�.

~I am learning that there are no magic pills to losing weight�.

~I am learning that diets don't work � but a plan, commitment and exercise will�

~I am learning that I have value and worth-- regardless of what I weigh...

~I am learning that I no longer need to hide away and isolate myself from the world ...

~I am learning that this prison of shame and guilt that I have built is my own creation and only I have the power to tear it down�.

~I am learning to take personal responsibility for every bite of food that I put into my mouth�.

~I am learning that I can acknowledge myself in ways other than eating�

~I am learning to admit that I am fat and unhealthy because I chose to overeat and I chose foods that were unhealthy and fattening�

~I am learning to enjoy exercise and looking forward to it each morning�

~I am learning that I am not a failure even though I have �failed� in the past�.

~I am learning that I am never, ever alone ...

~I am learning to love and accept myself�

~I am learning that it in loving and accepting me, I can love and accept others�

~I am learning that I am truly worth it�.

This road will be hard at times but I know I can do it. This time it will be different!
