Getting healthy will help me keep up with this little angel!
Our newest angel as of 5/17/06!
Three more angels!
As a nursing student I have increasingly become aware of my own bad habits that need to be changed. My goal is to graduate as not only a new nurse, but a new and healthier me. In the next year, I will work to create and live a healthier lifestyle both for myself and my family.
For the year to come.... I will live my life one day at a time by planning and utilizing the healthy habits I am establishing this year! In time, I believe I will reach a weight that is healthy for me and be able to maintain it permanently.
Learning and following SP guidelines for planning my meals and eating, as well as making sure I include some physical activity every day, with 30 minutes of exercise 4x/wk...Reading a positive quote each day, and participating in the message boards to stay focused and motivated!
I am 51, 261.3 lbs (May 29), mother of 2 girls, 3 boys, several exchange students and foster children over the past 25 years, and the blessed wife of one very special man. We live in central Oklahoma. Until I was injured in a car accident 7 years ago, the heaviest I had ever been was 148 lbs. and that was when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter! During the two years following the accident, I was told I'd never walk again and that I'd be having several surgeries (16 of them, but I CAN walk)...I took an enormous helping of self-pity and topped it off with equally huge toppings of self-indulgence and procrastination and became an unhappy, unhealthy person. That was then....This is now: I am in the nursing program at OSU with a 3.86 GPA, and in another three semesters I will graduate. This summer I am working to get the physical me to a healthier, happier place.
Motivation will almost always beat mere talent. - Norman R. Augustine
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. - Theodore Roosevelt
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. - Thomas Edison
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give us though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you
