OPEN YOUR OWN DOOR TO SUCCESS
Success on any major scale
requires that you accept responsibility.
The one quality that all successful people have
is their ability to take on responsibility.
You must choose the thoughts and actions
that will lead you on to success.
Nothing will happen by itself.
It can all come your way, once you understand
that you have to make it come your way,
by your own exertions.
Find your pathway to success and begin your journey.
Your life will become what you make of it.
The golden opportunity you are seeking lies within you.
It's not in your environment.
It's not in luck or chance, or the help of others.
It's in you alone.
Opportunity is all around you.
And if the door of opportunity is closed,
you must keep on knocking on it,
and keep on knocking on it until it opens.
You'll develop your opportunity
by applying persistence to your possibilities.
Success won't come to you, you must go to it.
Become an opener of doors.

Wow! This site is awesome!
I have spent the last few days really looking over the site (at first to get my points) and have foud some really nifty articles and recipes (check out "My Favorites", not to mention teams.
I have also coerce.....um asked my aldest to get involved and she has done a great job as well.---she has even set up a team called "Big and Beautiful".. It all about self acceptance and the changes that arise after ypou acknowledge and accpet ALL of you!
A recipe I found here: (it is not mine, but looks yummy)
Easy Zucchini Parmesan
Fat: 1.6 g
This quick and healthy snack tastes like a gormet side-dish, but just takes minutes to prepare! And as a bonus, it's an easy way to get the kids to eat their vegetables.
Zucchini, 1 cup, sliced
Parmesan Cheese, grated, 1 tbsp
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Original Buttery Spray, 10 sprays
Non-stick cooking spray
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then coat with some non-stick cooking spray. Place the zucchini slices out on the pan, then spritz with them with the butter spray. Sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and then pop it in the oven. Broil for a few minutes - until the cheese starts to brown. Enjoy it while it's warm!
Make a larger batch for a delicious and healthy side dish for any meal! Your family will love it!
Number of Servings: 1

Gearing up for the changes coming our way....
We are taking our time, and deciding, as a family, on the best approaches to our heathier lifestyle. We have some unique challenges to meet:
1. I have to consume at least 80 grams of protein daily, and I cannot drink milk . I also take a pharmacy of meds that can and do affect my appetite =(.
2. My son, who is 15, is the largest of us all at over 300 pounds and 5'10". Until this year he played football and wrestled. He still powerlifts. He is a volume eater and oddly enough, a very picky eater.
3. My Husband freaks out if the concept of "diet" enters his world. Even the concept of eating heathier causes trembling and the sudden urge to wolf down anything in his vicinity. He knows it is a mental thing with him, but still....
4. The girls, me, and my husband are allwithin 10-15 pounds of each other. We can all eat off the same range of calories and food choices. My son though is a whole different ballgame.
So, this is what we will be doing over the next few days.
