Hello, everyone
My name is Bonnie and like the rest of you I want and NEED to lose weight. I have accomplished lots of my goals in life, but this one goal--losing weight and being healthy--has continued to alude me for way too many years. So, it's really now or never. I appreciate any and all support from you all.
Like lots of you I have tried many times and methods to lose weight. I think any healthy diet is good, but it's my thinking that needs to change so that I can stick with the diet and change my emotional and binge eating pattern to something healthy and good for me. Giving and getting lots of support here will be a great help.

My Rewards:

10 pounds lost --- a new sweater---11/15/08
20 pounds lost --- a necklace--12/05/08
30 pounds lost ---knitting getaway--02/21/09
40 pounds lost ---new makeup---04/26/09
50 pounds lost--- a weekend in Amish country
60 pounds lost--- a new swimsuit
70 pounds lost--- yarn to knit a sweater for myself
80 pounds lost---a new wardrobe

    You are doing GoooOood Bonniejean!

    I have only read a few of your past blog entries but I see you as a real fighter and overcomer.

    I think your rate of progress is great. You are learning to make better choices and that skill will last you all your life. As Richard Simmons would say: "You're learning to live-it, not die-it." WAY TO GO! emoticon

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I hope my guests will find me a good hostess but I also know I can't please everyone. So I'll give them "me" and hope it works.
    I told someone once my slogan was Serve God, Serve Others, Serve Food! Seems to be what I do and I don't really mind it. He said I should change it to serve good food and I said well I don't know if everybody feels that way about it!!
    Seems like even as a child I had a Grandmothering spirit!
    Thanks again.
