Hi...My name is Mary and I am 33 years. I have struggled my entire life with my weight and emotional eating. I could make the story detailed and long, but it only boils down to that point. I start each day with full intentions of eating healthfully and exercising, but sometimes I mess up. I am trying to learn to forgive myself and remember this is my life.

I no longer want to be a prisoner to the diet mindset, the negative thoughts and feelings, or to obesity.

I want to be energetic, healthy, happy as sunshine. I want to be free.

What do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to achieve it? Start doing what's necessary, then do what's possible, and suddenly you'll be doing the impossible!

~ "In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer." ~

~ Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal. ~

~ It's not that some people have willpower and others don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. ~

~ Learn from where you went wrong, then step confidently and positively forward. For now is your time to live and to act. ~
