"[This journey] is not about achieving perfection. It's about achieving a mental and physical TRANSFORMATION. It's about optimizing your strengths, navigating around your vulnerabilities, and goin' for it! ...There can never and should never be perfection in a living thing. There is nothing human about perfection, nothing to endear or inspire."
PAMELA PEEKE

My Goals:

- eliminate 100 - 140 lbs (not really sure what 'normal' for me should look like)... or whatever gets me to 20% BMI... currently I've eliminated 15%!


- be as generous and loving with myself as I am on behalf of others.


- WRITE: because I owe God an answer!






My Program:

* READ/LEARN: to transform my mind. Where my mind goes, my body will follow!


* PARTICIPATION on SPARK People to keep me motivated and moving forward






Personal Information:

I am Ramona! I am 53 years old, married 14 years to my very best friend and biggest supporter, and mom to a most amazing 10 year old daughter. I live in central Canada.

If you really want to know even more about me than is already reflected in my blog, just ask! :)


NOTE: My weight tracker is not a truthful representation of my weight. Instead, I am using it as a tool to help me visualize my goal as though it's already been achieved!

"Lifestyle is unencumbered by obstacles. This means that the things I keep tripping over are something other than obstructive. They are instructive, and part of the directions on my map. Lifestyle is intentional and specific to me. Lifestyle is experiencing, expressing and enjoying every aspect of my life intensely and ardently to the full." - ME -

"Justification and rationalization are only mental masturbations - in the end, you only screw yourself."

"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we really grow up."
- JOHN MAXWELL -

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the hell with sugar and spice."

AND YET ANOTHER GOODIE. AND YOU SAY I'M A GOOD WRITER? IF YOU HAVE NEVER HAD ONE, YOU NEED TO BUY A SMALL BOOK CALLED "JESUS CALLING". I START EACH DAY WITH THE DAILY READING AND I SWEAR IT IS LIKE THEY ARE TALKING DIRECTLY TO ME. I DON'T KNOW WHERE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT BELIEVERS GO TO WHEN THEY NEED TO FIND STRENGTH. BUT SADDLY, I KNOW MANY THAT ARE LIKE THAT AND HAVE NO INTENTION OF CHANGING. SO ALL I CAN DO IS BE AN EXAMPLE AND HOPE THEY CAN SEE CHRIST IN ME.

THANKS FOR READING MY BLOG. HE KEEPS TELLING ME HE CAN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE HE PLANS TO DIE SOON. HE COULD BE RIGHT! HIS CANCER TESTS DIDN'T LOOK GOOD YESTERDAY. IT COULD MEAN YET MORE CHEMO AND I DON'T KNOW IF HE WILL DO THAT AGAIN.
