Today, girlfriend and I went to dinner first and then to collect items and foods to start a 21 day plan. Yes, this time she wants to go for 21 so I confessed from this mouth that I was in for the ride. Here we go again. <BR> <BR> Yes, I need support from all of my friends to help me stay focused. There is a great reward in it for me. That's being able to see my excess weight around my stomach disappear. It would be worth it. <BR> <BR> Now, I'm off to check in with my usual Spark groups! Sun, 31 Aug 2014 01:01:59 EST Theraphy What does one do on this journey when it feels as if theraphy is needed to focus for a full day and follow through with a committed plan? Well, maybe blogging, putting feelings before this community, evaluating daily behaviors, and moving forward in spite of setbacks. <BR> <BR> For the past few days I've wondered around SP and watched some videos of two very committed young ladies who have really remained focused and are losing weight daily. All of this is so inspiring and one wonders if ... Sun, 4 Nov 2012 01:12:30 EST Week 1 Results Maybe blogging will help me stay on track, so here it is. It's good to know one can always start over again. This has been an interesting week ending with a lost of one pound. <BR> <BR> Last weekend, I listened to a guy on public television talking about health and wellness. He really lit a fire under me.

Sun, 14 Aug 2011 22:59:15 EST Time to Take Charge! After the last doctor's visit, the time has come to cowgirl up and silence the child voice inside. It's time to allow the adult an apportunity to take charge. Exactly three months to clean up my act. At that time the blood will be drawn and I need all of my numbers to be in the correct range. That means good nutrition! <BR> Two weeks ago I had a heart catherization which required no stents, I'm excited to do this. It's another opportunity to get things right. I just need to stick with my pla... Sun, 7 Aug 2011 21:56:36 EST A Better Day! I was told by one of my doctors a couple of years ago that I needed to lose weight. During each visit my weight is brought to my attention. <BR> During my prayer time, I realized how disobedient I've been. This thought came to me; If I was hospitalized and told that I couldn't have any salt. I wouldn't get any! If I was to maintain a 1200 calorie diet. That would be it for the day! I also realized that I pay the doctors for their advice and I need to take it seriously instead as routine. <... Tue, 21 Sep 2010 10:49:07 EST Staying Focused It is time to put my whole heart and soul into staying focused on this project of losing the additional pounds that have accumulated over the years. One would think that having control over one's body would be the easiest thing, but discipline is the first requirement. Apparently, having everthing planned will produce the best results. Thank goodness every day is a new and different experience. <BR> Today started with eating birthday cake without any thought about my plan until it was consum... Sun, 19 Sep 2010 11:53:28 EST
