"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. ....The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. " ~ Charles Swindoll

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race." -- Calvin Coolidge
"You are stronger than any situation. You are stronger than any doubt. You are stronger than everyone else thinks you are, stronger than you were yesterday. You can do whatever it is you want, whatever you decide you are going to do. Now, what are you waiting for?" -- unknown

Keep on going no matter WHAT that scale pops up ............ Remember, it is just a 'ballpark' figure ............. Maybe you added some ST ............. (and it does not take much to show an increase on the scale) ................ Perhaps you ate or drank something salty and if you keep on going and drink your water quota .......... it will likely be flushed away! (Dont' let the scale be the judge and jury ................. the jury is still OUT ............... AND YOU ARE IN!!!

With every difficult step you take forward in your struggle, you are giving yourself a hug, kiss, "pat on the back" and "an I love you".

My name is Karisa and I have 140 lbs. to lose. I live in Fresno California, in a cute studio, where I hope to be painting masterpieces again. At the moment trying to grow flowers without killing them before they bloom.
