41 now & I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. I think about food constantly.What to eat & how to overcome it.I'm addicted to carbs.I do know how & what to eat healthy & do well until I binge on carbs & have my emotional eating sessions.I'm the heaviest I've ever been & most days feel my addictions won.
I'm a widow & the mother of a 20 year old Autistic son. I love God,my family,the outdoors,how exercise makes me feel,cooking,helping people feel better,movies & laughing.

    Just stopped by to check on you, dear one. You popped into my head a few times during the day today, and I'm trusting that you're well.

    I was so glad to hear from you! After I quit smoking, I kind of stopped doing anything else good for myself! Now that the holidays are over, I decided to get my butt back in gear! My health is great, my doctors love me!!!! Sending to you prayers for strength and peace in your heart! Keep going!!! emoticon

    Success is a Choice
    "Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
    dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."
