In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Hi, my name is Karla. I am starting this for the umpteenth time. I need to do this for me, for my family , for my future. I turn 50 next week. New beginnings. I'm married, with 2 children (9,11). I'm diabetic and I have a terrible family history of coronary artery disease. I don't want to be a statistic. I am hoping to find the tools and the encouragement to help me learn a better lifestyle and eating patterns and teach them to my children so that we don't continue this history.
Dead last is greater than did not finish which trumps did not start.
Courage does not always roar, sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says "I will try again tomorrow".
