�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: 51,287

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!!!

    Howdy Amy! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!

    It's super Saturday, Amy! If you've ever been late for work. Late for a date. Felt too old to change. Missed the boat/train. Fell off the wagon. Took a sabbatical. Derailed while on vacation. Bad stuff happened in life. It’s okay to be late. All LATE stands for is:


    Then get back on track. There’s years worth of empty days ahead to fill with good positive choices!

    Hi AMY-MIMI77,

    Answered on Fitbit Users Unite! Team...

    I found if I post my food on SP it syncs to Fitbit. I also have the ChargeHR

    Can't help on Fitbit to Runkeeper. I haven't tried even though I have both. I would be interested in the answer too.

    Hugs, Charlie
