� For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. �

― Steve Jobs

Hi, my name is Denise McIllwain. I'm about 6'1 and have significantly amount of weight to take off. I'm married and have been for about 21 years. I have three children. I'm a diabetic and my blood sugar is normal. I'm on a healthy diet. I eat about 5 - 6 meals a day because that is what is suggested by my dietician. I want to get down to before I had my baby weight which was 12 years ago. I love exercising. I exercise 1 to 2 hours every other day. It feels so wonderful and I feel very energetic. I want to get many buddies involved in my task so we can help each other. I plan to be the desired weight by Dec. 2016. It seems far away, but closer than anyone knows. So if you are revved up to do what is important, than lets get started!

That was how I started a year or so ago. Now I'm 80 pounds lighter and lost significant amount of inches. I'm blown away by my weight loss. I look great and feel wonderful. My husband can't keep his eyes and hands off of me. The best feeling in the world. I get so many compliments about the way I look and my confidence level. I can't stress how happy I am right now. I've been away from SparKPeople for awhile and now I've COME STRONGER THAN EVER. Look at me....I'm going for Platinum. No more gold. It's time for the best. I have a regular routine that I do daily. I work on my whole self, not just the body. My mind is at ease and I have much tranquility and serenity. I'm at peace with myself thanks to my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. My blood sugar is normal and my blood pressure isn't bad. I do not take insulin no longer or any type of diabetic medicine...Whooohoooo...I'm doing it!!! Go Denise Go

Double your rate of failure. You think of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can because remember that's where you will find success. (Thomas J. Watson)
