The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
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

I am a soon-to-be 47 year old mom of 4 children. I am an unemployed teacher (for a year now), and my lack of employment has contributed to a myriad of problems, such as depression, anxiety and of course, my weight. I have struggled since high school with weight gain, but it became a serious concern in my adult years. I have struggled with anxiety/panic attacks since my early 20's....my fears make it difficult to exercise, which adds to my problems. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure a couple of years ago, and I take medication.....I monitor my blood pressure at home, but am currently trying to overcome an obsession I have developed with this monitoring. Would love to meet folks who struggle with similar issues.
