I just read my first SP blog from 6/28/2008. That is really another lifetime ago, in a good way. emoticon I now do not care as much about comparing myself to other people. And... I've learned not to compare myself to Mary from 2008 or 2002. There is only Mary of 2013 in front of me. And I am happy to be here. Meaning alive and somewhat healthy. emoticon With the help of a dog and my GOD emoticon , I've had as close to an enlightenment as I can, at this time.

What I found and learned to accept:

I am me. And I like me.
It will not be easy for me to lose weight but I am willing to try.
Not everyone will support me. I need the will to not care what others say.
Other people's opininons about me do not matter. (They used to... but not now! Funny how getting rid of toxic people and environments made me see that.) emoticon
I get stronger all the time and I'm beginning to recognized that.
Being rich is enjoying the intangibles in life: love and happiness. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The BLC22 (Biggest Loser Challenge: Round 22) starts 6/6. I want this more now than I did in 2008. This older and wiser Mary wants to do this for me, no one else, for my pleasure and my health.

Still striving to implement this to others in my life right now, but one step at a time. I can do baby steps, so long as I'm going forward and keep trying.
