God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

A milestone is just a marker for a number, but when you have reached it, there is cause for celebration. When one is getting close to it, one's heart beats a little faster and ones enthusiasm carries one across the finish line. Go for it!

I'm below 300 pounds yesterday and today. I go by my weekly average, so I have to be very good this weekend and all next week for me to put in on my ticker next Friday. It has taken almost 3 years to lose, gain a little back, and finally lose 50 pounds, but it is accomplished. Now only 110 pounds to go!

An interesting article about self-sabotage. I wonder how often fear keeps us from achieving our dreams.

yes Yes YES!!!

For the last few years my life has just been getting better and better and better. My choices have been improving and driving positive changes across the board and I am a happier person than I ever knew was possible.

I have:

*Found the one I love, who loves me, understands me and supports me and always takes care of me.

*quit smoking, drugs, binge drinking and caffiene

*Ditched my 20 yearlong habit of disordered eating/self loathing and self destructive behaviours

*Pushed myself into new horizons healthwise, getting a personal trainer, dropping 70 pounds a bunch of sizes, lowering my blood pressure and improving my strength and fitness

*Have begun to forge a new career

I have been very busy this year planning my upcoming wedding, and once that is past I will have more time and energy to focus on pursuing the last tiny remaining areas of my life that need tweaking to make me perfectly happy.

My goal, as a spiritual being, is to align my will with the Will of God, which is always loving, kind, and merciful. We have been created with and infinite capacity, yet we accept so little in exchange for our time and energy. Is this action moving me forward in the direction of my goals or is it counter productive? Every moment is decision time. The more good decisions we make, the closer our goals. The more that we learn from our mistakes, the closer our goal. As Nike says, "Just do it!" The worst thing that can happen, if we are mindful, is that we will learn something and that is always a good thing! Peace!

Change can not only be wonderful, it is inevitable.
Therefore it is better if we take steps to push ourselves in alignment with the order of the universe, which is always for our highest and best.

Whooohooo to the guidance of our Higher Power!!!

Not my will, (cause I'd sit on the couch and eat,) but the right thing, the moral thing, the smarter choice substitution just for today... because I am worth it!
I cant change the past, while the future is in flux (change,) so all I need is to make sure that my current actions are IN LINE. Just one step at a time.

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.

Almost three years ago, my goal/dream was to become healthy. I have finally found the tools to help me complete this goal and I am achieving it. When something didn't work, I modified it or changed it completely and looked for better ways. I'm still evolving my plans and methods, but they are all leading to success. Once this, most basic, goal is achieved, I will have renewed energy to dream and pursue these new goals and these new dreams.

Anita, You are really living your dream. Walking is one of the best exercises and the reason most people in the world are much more fit than the average American. Good luck in your new life and mastery of the language.

Hey Chan, good to hear you are doing so well. I know it seems as if I fell off the face of the Earth, but adapting to new life takes a tremendous amount of energy. I've been walking A LOT!!! between 2 and 4 hrs a day, started learning the language and making friends. Keep on keeping, I'm sure you're doing a fabulous job! I'll try and start posting soon.

Best to everyone,

Hugs
Anita xoxo

My goal, 2.75 years ago, was to become healthy. I decided that my health was the most important thing. If I did not have health, wealth would matter little, my relationships would be adversely affected, and I would feel miserable. It is taking me a while to read, learn, practice, make mistake, start over, and now I am finally on my path to health. I discovered many things along the way and I have discarded many things as well. I am still learning, but I am realizing my dream: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. My journey is not over, I have just begun, but it is exciting and my life is improving in immeasurable ways.
