I live near Pensacola Beach & I want to take advantage of all the fun & exciting things/sports that are available in this area. It's time for me to get up... and get moving!

I want to remind myself daily... "Just Breathe"
Breathing is one of the most overlooked aspects of good health. Oxygen is fuel for the brain and the body. Good, clean air boosts your physical and mental performance and helps lower stress. Whatever goal you're working for, proper breathing will help you reach it.

"You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are.
You are what you are!" John Lennon

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." Leo Tolstoy

"Rather than wishing for change, you first must be prepared to change." Catherine Pulsifer

"Everyone can think of the one thing that would make life better for them. But people are not so quick to answer the second question: 'What are you doing to make that change come true'."
Catherine Pulsifer

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." Maya Angelou

My Goals:
I'm going on my 4th cruise in Jan 2010 with my family and want to be in a better place with my lifestyle changes. I know that it's going to take commitment on my part to stay focused to lose the amount of weight I need to lose, but by being more active, more aware of my food choices, I will feel better and get around easier. Patience is my goal to achieve my ultimate dreams.

My Program:
Moving more... eating less to begin with. Learning everything there is to learn about foods, fruits & vegetables, so I'm empowered with the choices I make of what to put in my mouth, and when. Choosing to focus on other things than food to fill a void.

Personal Information:
I'm 49, with 3 boys and two grandchildren. I was born & raised in California, and I've lived in Georgia and now Florida. A West Coast girl who loves the South East. I've gradually over the course of 20 years put on lots of weight and now is the time for me to say, No More!
