This weight loss/healthy lifestyle thing has been a do-over for most of my life. I'm tired of being tired and yo yo-ing back and forth on the scale. I want this to be the LAST starting over post that I make. I want to reach my goal and never look back at those high numbers on the scale again. I want to do this Once And For All!
I sent my team mates of 40 and Fabulous a SparkMail message today. It was entitled "MayDay!!!! MayDay!!!! MayDay!!!" Here is an excerpt from my e-mail:
Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications. It derives from the French venez m'aider, meaning "come help me". It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by mariners and aviators, but in some countries local organisations such as police forces, firefighters, and transportation organizations also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row ("Mayday Mayday Mayday") to prevent mistaking it for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call."

May 1 is the 121st day of the year (122nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 244 days remaining until the end of the year. If the last 120 days haven't been so great for you (as they haven't been for me), why not join me in calling out Mayday and making the next 244 days of 2013 the best they can be! Let's make some goals and strive to reach them by the end of the year!
I'm looking forward to meeting and re-connecting with Spark Friends and can't wait to feel energetic and healthy again. I want to put the 'Mayday' emergencies behind me and just enjoy all my days here on earth as a healthy and happy human being!
