In Memory of my most precious sister-in-Christ: "Glenda Brown: You can become like water Donna...patient, ever seeking, and unstoppable..."
This last year has been a very rough year for me & my weight has paid the price. It took all my strength & effort just to keep myself together & I could not even have done that except by God's help & grace.

I'd love to say I'm confident in my resolve to begin this journey again, but I'm apprehensive. So many failures & losses have made my confidence at an all time low. But, I have to start somewhere, don't I? So this is where I am - today. One minute & minute step at a time.

Can't wait to get my treadmill back. It's been gathering dust for way too long now. That starts when I get my new apartment!

Personal Information:
My Motto: God First

My stand on God's Word is what gets me through all things, good & bad.

I have to remember that I've already proven to myself I can lose 45 lbs. without much difficulty. All I have to do is stick to my routine!

I'm normally very quiet until I know someone well. People consider me very fair, trustful, honest, fun to be around, & easy to get along with. Normally I am slow to anger but when you push me past my limit, watch out. You will KNOW you pissed me off. (Must be the Italian in me. LOL.)

About me:
I'm strong yet I'm a little girl at heart, sometimes too nieve but not stupid, I'm fun to be around when you get to know me well, I don't like to be made fun of, I've got a sensitive heart but won't be fooled, I'm good at first impressions, and can easily read someone.

Other Information:
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts!!"
