�Tell me and I''ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I''ll understand.� ~ Native American Proverb

I am strengthened by my weaknesses.
I am brave because of my fears.
I am greater because of my mistakes.

I am trying to get Healthier and show my guys that you can do anything you put your mind to. That hard work is it''s own reward

I am making better food choices. Eating Healther & following Portion sizes it the key, but hard to do. Just about everything here in South Louisiana is Fried or smothered in fats. But I AM doing this and am very pleased with the Will Power I''ve been using.

Member Since: 4/7/2009

Fitness Minutes: 51,409

My Goals:
I want to be able to keep up with my boys, get healther.
I don't want my children to think back on their childhood in a bad way and I don't want them to struggle with weight like I always have. I want them to learn these healthy habits and make it part of their lifestyle, so they can change the cycle. I promise not to become a fanatic about it 'cuz that starts trouble (ask me about my best friend) anyway, I want them to learn correctly at an early enough age.

My Program:
the old tried and true method of healthier choices, portion control, & exercise. Or to quote my old friends Walton & Johnson: "Eat less and move around more"

Any activities with my boys - we are a Cub Scout Family; so to have one in Boy Scouts

Personal Information:
I love this poem:

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me
NO matter how heavy my heat is
Or how sark the moment may be -
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me-
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
that darkness will fade with the mourning
And that this will pass away, too-
Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains
That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear -
For there is no night without dawning
And I know htat my morning is near.
......Helen Steiner Rice

Other Information:
I love Erica Spindler (she is also a Louisiana girl) - learned about her from my Old Friends "Walton & Johnson" They Rock by the way; do a morning radio station in the Gulf South. Based out of Houston - If you haven't heard them, you should - I'm a 10%er for life.
I also LOVE Janet Evanovich - she has this series about a Bail Bounds Woman - Stephanie Plum - HILAROUS!!!

    Hey Amy -

    I noticed you wrote on my status that you suffer from BED as well. I was just wondering if you have found any tricks to help you overcome it. I just realized that this could be the problem I am having and am not quite sure where to start to gain control so I thought I would reach out. :)

    I know I do not let you know often enough, but I really do appreciate your friendship, your goodies, you comments and your encouragement. SOme days I feel so discouraged, then I go to my SP page and see you have left me support and I feel determined again. Thank you so much for always being there.

    Your new job is someones old job.
    Your new excuse is someones old excuse.
    Your new health plan is someones old heath plan.
    You may not be chartering new waters in finding the new you, but you can be positive and have fun along the way.

    Evening Amy! If you give up now, how will you ever know you could have succeeded? No matter the cost or sacrifice, keep pushing yourself beyond your own boundaries. Make this minute the minute of decision and break free of your self-made limitations!!

    Hello Amy. I thought I’d share a personal observation that seemed to have been a popular one. I hope you don’t mind if I share it again:

    Every fat cell acquired through life is accompanied with either a good or bad memory. No wonder losing weight is such an emotional journey!
