Five years already!

It has been five years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

WOW, it just "Dawned" on me that I hadn't thanked you for your perceptive comment on my "Warning" blog. I guess I was in the shower too long and it just "slipped" my mind.
Love you.

“Nobody ever talks about the pyramids that weren't built, the books that weren't written, the songs that weren't sung.
Stop letting your fear condemn you to mediocrity. Get out of your own way.
Your dreams are a poetic reflection of your soul's wishes. Be courageous enough to follow them.
There is no greater time than now to experience the full power of your potential.
Make this the day you take the first step in the beautiful journey of bringing your dreams to life.”
-Steve Maraboli
