I've had so many life changes in the past two years. My divorce has been tied up in court for those two years and still not final, I moved back to my hometown, in another state, and last month I lost my job. All of these stressors have led me to being at my highest weight since I was pregnant with my kids. My oldest daughter is heavy too and I want to be a positive example and role model for my two daughters (ages 5 and 6) I'm tired of existing, I want to LIVE!

I saw this posting in the Panic Button threads, posted by Janie28Jane.. and I love it!

"Sometimes life throws you curve balls, far too much stress, and you feel like your life is spiraling out of control. Here is what gets me through the hopeless times: Me, my body, my nutrition, my exercise habits, my peace of mind - these are all things in my life that I DO have control over. I sit and just breathe. I remind myself that I am where I'm supposed to be in life and that I am a good person. I have control over what food I put in my mouth and how many miles I put on the treadmill. It hasn't been easy at times, but I'm much more at ease with myself when I concentrate on the positive things in my life, things I can control. And there you have it."

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my page! I kow exactly what you mean about the wedding stress. I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding next month and want the dress to fit perfectly (for me...and for her on her big day). The dress you'll be wearing is a good cut for so many body types - I think the style is flattering on your figure :)

    Just keep at it and you'll get yourself where you want to be. Best wishes!

    Here's your kick to get you out of your funk!! emoticon

    You can do this!!

    My favorite saying goes like this... next week is going to come regardless of what you do... wouldn't you prefer to look back next week and think... Gosh, I'm SO glad I tracked my food and exercised Thursday, Friday and Saturday!??! (or whatever schedule you like)

    You CAN DO THIS!!!!
