I left my husband and moved back to Michigan from Alabama in June, 2010. I stayed with my daughter for awhile. She moved out to Nova Scotia for awhile. She's thinking of coming back because she's pregnant. I can't wait! I have another daughter in Alabama. I'm hoping she comes home soon.
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.
Katie, what a great post,
It does seem to be mostly a mind game. Get your mind set in the groove it must follow and the outside world will change around it. I'm still working on positivity. Your post motivated me for today and for that I am very grateful!

My triumphs have been many recently. I lost over 100 pounds twice before-ony to gain it all back and added more-started thinking positively, started walking, then changed eating habits-and now, 3 years later I am LIVING-not just getting by like I did for a long, long time. each day I wake up so grateful for health and life and all that is around us. I choose to see the good, I choose to expect the good and it seems to happen.
I read a lot about this-it really did help me transform my life. So now, I do what I used to only dream of-running, kayaking, hiking, zipline, date, bike, it goes on and on. I wish I could tell everyone how simple it really is, once you get the right mind set. So happy there is a positive thinking forum here!!!!!!
I had a very negative/traumatic childhood.
The only stable person I had in my life was my father. I moved in with him in the 4th grade. He became sick & I went back to my mother in the 5th grade. In the 6th I moved back with my father. He passed away during my 8th grade year. We were on spring break & it was just me, my friend, and him 2 hours away from home at the farm. He had a heart attack. From that point forward I took care of myself. Needless to say, I suffered from depression & drank a ton. I had my son at 28 weeks gestations and my daughter at 27 weeks. Probably around 22 I decided to turn my life around. I stopped drinking as much and I started working out. I cut negative people out of my life. When I got back in touch with James (my fiancée) the pieces just fell back in place. He helped me along the rest of the way. I very rarely get depressed & I hardly drink. The man pushes me to be my best.
This is the VERY short version lol!

After slowly gaining weight over the years, my clothes were not fitting, so i started getting more active and watched portions.i lost about 35 lbs and kept it off for 2 years. i did not have to track or do anything special. Then i started eating to much, and not excercise with intensity. Also not making the best choices,
I had success because i focused on making healthy decisions. over the past few years i slowly started putting some more lbs on. It was partially because of my bad attitudes and laziness. I have the most success when i dont dwell on the negative r use it as an escuse to overeat.

You might wonder why there is an 'Introduce Yourself' section AND a 'Tell Us Your Story' forum.
Well, I am hoping that the 'Introduce Yourself' forum will be more of a team directory.
Also, I think our stories change as we change. We add to the story. We sometimes even edit the story. I think that's okay.
In addition I am hoping that this section can be used so that ANY sort of story can be posted. Tell us what happened to you on the way to work today. Tell us what your husband said to you last night. Let us know what's going on.
5/1/13 - Obviously I am still thinking about how to organize stuff ... any input is welcome!!
I added triumphs and pitfalls to this section so we can brag and confess. LOL
