"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson
"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able ; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor. 10: 13) ********************** When your values are clear to you, making decisions become easier. **************************** The will of God will never take you to where the Grace of God will not protect You........
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 ya'll, I'm new to the team but not new to sparkpeople. I've had my ups & downs, been 120 pounds and 205+ pounds, currently around 200. I've struggled and struggled, thought I was doing what I could but always fell short, then gave up defeated and watched the scale rise & rise. When I hit over the 200 mark I was sick, how could I have let myself go so far.
But as a quote I recently saw says "No matter how full of junk your past is, your future is always spotless." And I think my future looks bright. So my slate is wiped clean, I don't care how small I was in the past and I don't care how big I am now, the future is ahead and I'm done looking at the past. So with food tracking, exercise, good friends and maybe a little luck I'll finally see the girl in the mirror who I know is inside me.
