Okay, here it goes, I was watching a show on tv today on TLC channel, and seeing these people who have to go to a clinic called Brookhaven, to lose weight was very heart wrenching. I see these people who are so heavy that they were having sleep apnea, diabetes, leg sores, and other ailments, yet they were still sneaking food. Calling all kinds of fast food places that deliver to bring them food to a clinic. It was crazy. I worry sometimes that I may not make it to my goal, I worry that life will get to busy for me that I may not make it, I may not finish it, I worry that I will get too comfortable again and may lose sight of my accomplishments thus far. I worry that I may one day look and be back at square one. I look at my problem with food before and think that was my addiction. Being so proud that I never had problems with drugs or alcohol, turn out mine was FOOD. Ughhhhhhhh. I know this is just the negative part of me trying to throw me off my goals, and I am not supposed to let if phase me, and I dont plan on it. I do plan to keep going from here on out. I will make it. I will continue my stride. I dont know why on today, did I start thinkng about the WHat if's??? I am workng this very moment to change that to a date. I am going to reach my goal weight before the end of this year. I know I will, I am going to have to work hard and stop letting things get me down. I can do it. I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.......................

Neglect was the charge. Failure to eat the proper foods, failure to exercise on a daily basis, failure to maintain a healthy weight, YOU MY FRIEND have been CHARGED WITH "NEGLECT" OMG!!!! I was abusing my own self!!! I was guilty as charged. Now I am paying the consequences by serving my sentence. It's okay because I had a corrective action plan.......
#1. Take it slow, look at my current habits and see what I need to change.
#2. Research, trial and error periods are common to see what works and what doesn't.
#3. Don't be discouraged, the weight didn't come on overnight it definitely won't leave overnight although we wish it was that way.
#4. I would say find a partner but you have to do what works for you, My partners are here on BBQ, but I workout everyday by myself. I guess you could say the people I see that are regulars at the gym are my partners we wave and say hello and keep on moving. Plus I have to go when I can due to my work schedule and my daughters school schedule.
#5 Journal, journal, journal, and be active on the message boards it helps to talk about what we are going through, as we move along through our journey and it helps us to see what was keeping us down, or what keeps us moving. We help support and uplift on the downfalls and the high points of this embark.

Its okay I am not looking for them. LOL, I am now working on my third quarter. I have broken it up into a strategy. Take it a quarter at a time. Then its not so overwhelming. just to think of my two quarters being lost is wonderful. I just hope no one else finds them.
I saw a motto yesterday that kind of stuck to me. I cannot remember exactly what it said but it pertained to us taking advantage of the ability to change today because we dont know if we will still have the same opportunity tomorrow. I think this is so crucial because you never know what will happen, changes need to be effective immediately. I used to procrastinate and say on the first of the month, monday, tomorrow or when I get to such and such a point in my life, then I will make the changes. I am not saying that everything has to be boom, fall right into place right now, but start out small and work your way up to work your weight down.

A standard statement in a contract which ensures that all dates and times of day noted in the contract are important and cannot be ignored by any of the parties without the consent of the others except in breach of the contract.
I , Red Velvet, of sound mind and body, from here on out, agree to do my best in reaching my goal weight of 181. I agree to exercise, eat right, drink my water, and count my calories. I agree that once I have reached my goal weight all that I have learned does not go out of the ears and leave me big headed. I agree that this is a lifetime change and that I therefore must work on this daily and maintain my weight. I vow to help others along in their journey, by encouragement and sharing my story with them. I vow to never forget that this journey was not easy, that there will be times when the road gets tough and that encouragement is very essential in the accomplishments of others. I vow to be here on out the best that I can be and to reach my goal.
* Goals may be lowered at any time, however never highered over 181, because that would be a breach of contract.*
