This year, it's just me. I'm ready for a change ... again. Hopefully this time I can keep it off longer than a year, though. Forever would be nice.

For me it's my health. I am diabetic and I have to lose the weight. I also have young kids and I want to be around for them. It was also a good stiff kick in the rear end from my best friend. I hated the way she talked to me about it but it was what I needed to hear.

Let's make it a healthy day!

I want to be able to do all the things with my grandkids. I want to run with them, climb on the toys at the park. Wrestle on the floor. Just anything they like to do.

the most motivating thing was that first burst of success when I started to finally see the scale moving a bit.

It's been a time-to-pay-the-fiddler kind of thing for me. Doc told me I was pre-diabetic and that really scared me. I knew I had to stop my destructive bingeing habits and laxative abuse or it was going to kill me. I have been off laxatives now for 9 months and I have only binged 3 times in that time. Unfortunately, yesterday was one of them.

In His Strength and Grace,
