If you ACCEPT the responsibility for your CHOICES,
even if you don't REACH YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL,
you still give yourself the POWER to change your tomorrow
by making yourself ACCOUNTABLE for what you do TODAY.
You may never get to the finish line...but you will still be closer than before.
And the FINISH LINE always moves ..anyway.

“After climbing a great hill,
one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.” ~Nelson Mandela

Don't be a victim of the old you
FREE yourself for new possibilities.

    Home PT exercises are so hard to stick to. I'm the only one that gets cheated if I don't do them. I've known of people who join gyms and then they have a friend input their code for them if they don't go. Who are they cheating then? The insurance company?

I keep wishing my husband would exercise but I've had to learn that I can't take responsibility for him. If he won't do it, it's all on him.

    That one cartoon reminds me of how some of my family members always point out that they are big-boned. We know, don't we, that it's what's covering those bones that is causing the problem? Thanks for the laughter! emoticon

    LOVE the pic of the "prisoner in our own eye" !!! Where do you find these kiddo? They SPEAK VOLUMES !!!

ONLY we can PREVENT FOREST FIRES,, or StART one in our OWN LIVES ! I d just asuume BURN DoWN THe CAL Forest than EAT and KEEP PLANTING TREES which I do NOT LOOK Thru and let it go at that !!

One of my BFF's ,, she's my swimming partner,, and I started out together on the swimming,, I've LOST 6lbs since,, (been 5 weeks) and shes eating much the same,, and of course LOVES TO INVOLVE me on that !! the other day gave me a bag of candy,, MY DOWNFALL !! I am NOT sure if she does this,, so I WILL REGAIN or if she feels "you like it" when I LOVE Candy it's NOT good for me,, but at this point I DO COntrol it. I'd rather NOT take it from her,, and for most parts,,,, I DO REFUSE it,, LOL SO I went and bought a Gluten Free brownie,,and GAVE IT TO HER !!! but !! DANG !! She LOVED IT !! SO guess she did NOT get what it was I was a doing.

I am just going to have to AGAIN talk to her,,, sigh ,, she NEVER gets this. When we were both young,, I weighed only 115lbs,, and remained between 115 and 120 thru my 30s,,, when I was hit by a truck,,, than along came MANY meds,,, steroids,,, and I SHOT UP to HER weight,, she was SOO HAPPY WITH THAT !! (I would of been supportive and helpful to help HER get back DOWN !) but, NO SHE WAS THRILLED "now you WEIGH LIKE I DO" !! ANd she had her FAT FRIEND. So yeah,, she's NON SUPPORTIVE with the food, though she's a GREAT Swimming partner,,, I wish she'd watch the food part. SIGH !! but, that's HER choice,, and one I am SURE she'll never make,,,,,,

    Well, poop. No more blaming other people while I climb hill after hill with no end in sight.OMG! I need a valium! Actually, I'm wheezing today. (Excuse) I'm gonna have to put Mt. Everest on the back burner. I can come for supper though. I'm sure your eats are better than mine.
