The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. You must handle the pain with strategy...It is not age; it is not diet. It is the will to succeed. Jacqueline Gareau

I have been there and the Lord will help you if you would only give it to him. Love yourself enough to not let the devil get the victory over your health. He wants to rob you of your self worth. You are special and loved so treat yourself likewise by making healthier choices. You can do it.
Welcome to BBQ. ayou will succeed in all that you do. Keep God with you at all times and you will definitely accomplish everything. I commend you for what you have already done. And that would be making that first step to join in with us. GOOD LUCK!!!!
I'm starting my new lifestyle changes(diet) again!!! I'm 43 years old and been overweight since my family fatten up the preemie. I feel that this time will be different meaning successful. This time I started out with a competition with co-workers who disbanded the contest, but I feel I can continue on with the support of BBQ, great husband, and our two younger children(girl-6 & boy-5 y.o.). Years past I had moderate success with several diet plans(yo-yo). Factors that hindered me in the past were genes, emotional eating, and mental(childhood experience-incest from the age of 5-9 that I can readily remember). Mentally I feel that I'm invisible when I'm overweight, that I'm not attractive and can't be seen or harmed by men. When I met and married my husband he help me a lot with my low self-esteem, he make feel beautiful and desired in any shape, but I want to be healthy and improved my life-spans for my young children that the Lord has blessed me with in my approaching golden years.
