" No one, Eleanor Roosevelt said, can make you feel inferior without your consent. Never give it. "

Something I have had to learn in my life. I have always tried to hide myself from living life to it's fullest due to my weight. I shied away from people and crowds, so avoid hurtful things being said. Of course I felt shame for being overweight, and this would trigger me to eat in private. It became my life.

I have stepped up to the plate, realized what I was doing and have started to move in a forward direction. Instead of causing myself more harm than good, I now work on improving myself and living a healthy life.

    GREAT blog Barb...I like this statement in your blog, "Instead of causing myself more harm than good, I now work on improving myself and living a healthy life." We DO cause more harm when we shy away and hide, living life in the background.
Hugs,
Shan

Good morning. Woke up this morning to snow, so going to wait awhile before leaving to go to the hospital.

Mom has good days and bad days, yesterday was a bad day, she slept all day and was very confused. However her vital organs have improved to a stable level. She is a fighter.

It's a day to day thing, and as long as she continues to stay stable we will start the long drive home on Friday.

Thanks to all my Spark friends who continue to prayer for her and me and my family.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." Albert Einstein





It's sunny but cold today. I know the warmth from the sun will warm things up quickly. Pool yesterday was refreshing, love the workout I get and also helps me get a good nights sleep.

Work your program Sparkers and enjoy Hump Day !

" If you want to be happy, be. " ~Leo Tolstoy



Today is pool day, so I only work until 1:15 then I'm off to enjoy the pool and hot tub. Saturday the hot tub wasn't working so hoping today it is.

It's nice and sunny and hopefully the warm sun will warm up the temperature, it was -4 C this morning, that means 25 Farenheit.

Doing good on program, how are you doing?
