I have a new passion, and a goal, that means more to me than just my waist size. I started to Belly Dance and Zumba. I soon found that I love to Zumba all the time. I want to slim down this year, and become a Zumba instructor. I will be 45 in January, and I don't want my body to give up and die. I want to leave this earth kicking and screaming, and making so much of an impact, I will be used as an example to never give up on dreams.

I still have a night eating problem. I still smoke, and I have a sleeping problem, meaning I hardly ever sleep. BUT, those things I will work on, 1 at a time.

OK...I'm back. I;m at 228 lbs again. You know it;s so easy to gain, and so hard to with the help of a diet group, I'm going to reach a goal of under 185 by March 2013.

Update. I am down almost 60 lbs. My battle is far from over, but I feel like a new person. We have adopted our grandson, whom is now my son. He has Autism. But after reading about foods, I put him on a dairy free, gluten free diet, and he has turned into a different child. I have learned that I am allergic to ALL grains. I also gave up dairy. I have learned that so much of the food we eat is not what our bodys want or need.
I am excited about life, and living....

My 23 year old daughter thought of the name livingpaperdoll, and it just kind of stuck. I am a 44 overweight woman. I have a wonderful husband, two daughters and a 3 yr old adopted son. I have a grandson. I also am a true animal lover, and have some what of a zoo living in my house to prove it. I used to foster for a local Animal Rescue, when ever time permits, and think that all animals deserve a chance.
I am looking for anyone who is optimistic ( or trying to be),, and fun, to join me on this adventure, of weight loss. I really could use diet buddy. I want to stop my body from growing, and moaning. I want to stop my fat from hurting. Can fat hurt? LOL I want to feel healthy and strong.
I want to battle this YOYO trip that I keep getting on and off of, and WIN!! So here I go......LET'S DO THIS!!

I have gained 50+ pounds in a little over 2 years . I was a walker. But tore my knee up, and am just now getting back to it. My brain seems to sabatoge me every day, every time I put on my shoes..........Struggling from day to day.
Back in Spril of 2009, my doctor told me this weight was going to catch up to me, and shorten my life. I need to lose this weight, or this weight will kill me. I mean I;m as healthy as a 250lb person can be....but it's time....I need help, I am asking for some NAGGING diet buddys....I cheat, I need someone to hold me accountable....are you up for a challenge? I can help you....I can nag real well!!!! LOL
I know it's up to me, but it's hard. you know that, but together, we have twice as much of a chance to succeed.

    Christmas is almost here. It is time for sharing love, peace and joy. Yet, many have chosen to get stressed out with shopping, over spending and being robbed of the beauty of Christmas. I am praying that you will be someone who experiences the love, peace and joy of Christmas. May you have a Christmas that will touch your heart all year around with love that keeps on giving and receiving. Let us take Christmas one remembers a material gift over the years; they remember for a life time the love they received.

    Have a Blessed Christmas this year! You are a beautiful Christmas gift that so many people in this world need--the gift of love which you can give to anyone at anytime without any stress or overspending.

    "The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being."--Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

    Who says you're not beautiful? Is it you? Here is something we all need to remember on those days when our life is not going the best and we feel we don't look that good.

    The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.
    Aishwarya Rai

    Wanted to remind you today that you truly are beautiful! And your beauty will never fade, unless you think it will.

    A great way to show yourself what is possible is to
    help someone else to learn to grow and do more than
    they ever thought they could.

    Today is very special--you get to enjoy it only once in your life time. It will never be again. So why not treat today like something very special-a once in a life time experience? Isn't that what to day is? Enjoy something you like with a friend or love one, call someone you need to reconcile with or someone you know is lonely. Come on and make today YOUR DAY-by sharing a part of your inner beauty with someone else.
