Mine at home was off by 5# so whenever I weighed in at TOPS(Taking off Pounds Sensibly) I would weigh heavy so it was important to me to purchase a scale. I saw the one at WALLY MART that cost $50 and records (you name it) weight, body fat, unhealthy snacks, etc. etc. etc. My choice was to put it off awhile. Than my neighbor gave me a digital scale and I found it weighed 5# more than mine at home. So, now I am legal and I am in the run for the goal of the Yellow Rose. I hope my friend, the scale is going to come through.
The Yellow Rose: The yellow rose is the symbol for becoming a KOPS (Keeping of Pounds sensibly a term used at my TOPS weight loss support meetings). Becoming a KOP means you have reached your goal weight. Each of our KOPS members are presented with 2 yellow rose at our awards ceremony each year, 1 to keep and 1 to give away to someone they want to inspire.

I. Read about another successful person that has developed a plan.
I took a look at Coach Nicole's blog and saw that one of the most effective methods for her was to develop a plan that works for her. She called it Habits of Fit People.
1. Mix it up
2. Stick to habits of fit people on vacation
3. Work out when you travel
4. Treat a holiday like any other day
5. Develop a plan B
6. Create a workout playlist - songs on ipod or cd's you enjoy
7. Commit to just 10 minutes
8. Find something fun
9. Pack your bag
10. Mark your calendar
So, I am developing a plan that works for me.
II. Making a notebook to log my progress via this JUNE FITNESS BLOG.
Type of excercise
How I felt during the time
Refueling after workout/what/how soon
Mileage on Pedometer
III. Marking it on the calendar
Challenge - Tops, team up with Audrey & Linda - June 18th

This poppy is one I photographed. Orange is supposed to be a powerful color. I chose it because I believe when I turn my worries into prayers it equals the power of God in my life.
Legend has it there’s a study out there that says 90% of what we worry about never comes to pass. Whether that study is real or not, it’s most likely that this statistic holds in your life. How much of our lives do we miss because we’re agonizing over what might happen down the road? How often do we fail to act – even if it’s the right thing to do – because we fear any number of possible consequences? Fretting over the future doesn’t solve any of those impending problems. It only paralyzes your actions of the present. It stresses you out, makes you mentally and physically tired, and saps all the fun out of what could have been another great day. Next time you start to worry about what might happen, think of this: You can prepare, but you cannot predict. So do what you can, and forget what you cannot.
Thanks Joyce for sharing the next paragraph ( I hope you don't mind I copied it here.) It is one of my long time favorites and from the best source, the Bible.
Philippians 4:6-7 "Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
