glad you are joining us on this journey to a healthy lifestyle. We are on a journey not in a race. We know that the way we have lived, eat and set on the couch got us in this condition, so we must change!
Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2016 weight goals of 50 pounds.

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
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

Hello, I'm Carolyn and I'm working on getting healthy, losing the weight I've collected and getting getting into good physical shape again. I think you have to keep a good sense of humor about it all and try to enjoy the journey. Heck, I enjoyed getting out of shape, so I might as well enjoy getting back into shape.
