For today

I've never been good at focusing on distant goals, so as I work on being healthier I'm really focusing on the idea that "for today" I will be supportive of myself and work to do what will help me in the long run

My Goals:
I start this journey at least 150 pounds overweight. My desire is to be an average sized woman, able to buy clothes in a regular store for regular people. I want to be as healthy as possible so that I can inspire someone else to take this journey and succeed.

My Program:
I am working to take an honest look at what I've done to myself and how I can change my attitude toward myself while I work on becoming more physically fit. I use walk videos several days a week, walke 30 minutes to an hour every night, find corie burning yard work to do, and work out with stretch bands. I work on keeping my calorie count below 2000/day. My main focus really is on changing my way of thinking when it comes to my lifestyle. The Word says "with God all things are possible" and I have to hold on to His promise that what I ask in His Name will be taken care of . I believe with His help I can do this.

Personal Information:
I'm origonally a Kentucky girl, now living in Indiana. I am 57 years old and have a married 27 year old daughter. She and her wonderful husband live in a neighboring town and have an English Mastiff for me to spoil.

Other Information:
"I can do all things through Christ Jesus which strengtheneth me."

I have many hobbies and interests. I go many places and present as a Christian motivational speaker, primarily to women's groups, and sing Southern Gospel music. I quilt, sew, knit, crochet, tat, paint, write, and anything else I can come up with. I garden, mostly flowers, and work in my big yard. God has richly blessed my life and I so appreciate His loving kindness.

Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless you, hope your day is blessed as you gather with family and friend's..... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope you enjoy the following poem...

Most of All

Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
