"The strongest oak tree of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. Its the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle against the winds and the rain and the scorching sun."
-Napolean Hill

Like the tree, I need to put myself out there and struggle against the odds. My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to improve my health and feeling of self worth.

The 150 lb. goal that I've set was chosen because that's what I weighed before my daughter was born and because when I look at old photographs, those are the ones that make me the happiest .. lol

I have a lot of obstacles to overcome .. mainly physical limitations .. so I know this is going to be a long journey. I'm just glad that I've been given the opportunity to take it along with the wonderful friends I've met here at SparkPeoople.

My Goals:
Improved Health:
- Lower dosage or eliminate the need to take medication for my heart conditions.
- Control diabetes through use of healthy eating and exercise habits.

- Continue to care for elderly Mother so that she does not wind up in a nursing home. *UPDATE* Mom passed on 3/4/2010 and I'm happy to say that I cared for her here at home throughout. She came into this house as a bride and left nearly 60 years later after taking her final breath. I miss her very much, but am so glad that I was able to do this for her.
- Support my husband and daughter in every way.

Weight Management:
- Lose a healthy 1 to 3 pounds per week.

My Program:
Follow Weight Watcher's Flex Plan:
- Faithfully journal and track food intake.
- Incorporate more activity into my life.
- Use the WW Healthy Living Guidelines and Tools for Living on a daily basis.

    Happy Monday!! Another month is drawing to a close... I hope you are seeing progress on your journey...

    Don't forget that the scale doesn't always tell the whole story. Have you measured yourself lately???

    You may just be amazed at what you discover!
