Weathering the Storm

"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 ...

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.

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!
