Seems like I have been doing this forever without any success. Even when I do what is "REQUIRED" the weight wont go anywhere. I guess I should be happy I havent gained any of the 20 pounds I originally lost. I will never quit trying.

NEW ENTRY2/24/2009.................NEW AMBITIONS
NEW MOTIVATION..................NEW START!!!!

And now its time to get with the program. I guess I have never done what is "REQUIRED" to be truthful, that is up until now. I feel I have been given another chance and this time I intend to take full advantage of it.

So as of March 1, 2009..........when I am given the all clear to exercise again........................I will be off and running toward the goal line, full bore and looking for success. No more excuses, no more fooling myself, no more sitting back, whining and waiting for it to happen. "I" have to make it happen.

    Teresa, I was reading some of your blogs and I would suggest that you read your blog of February 24. Try to remember how you were feeling. Try to recapture those feelings of being ready to get going again on this journey. Go ahead, I'll wait for you to read it...............feel better? You know you are worth it, you just need to remind yourself.

    Well hello there .. I've been here many times. But this time it's official business .. emoticon I came to get to know you even better. emoticon Thanks also for stopping by my page the other day.

    I am proud of the fact that you have accomplished so much in your healthy lifestyle journey. You have kicked some habits to the curb which in my mind deserve honorable mention. Thanks so much for sharing .. I read about that some time ago on our 'Tens' Board. You are doing an amazing job and I know, just like those other times, you will succeed in this 'giving up' battle.

    Good luck and God bless and again I must say I am happy to be on this journey with you.
