I never knew how big I was getting until I saw a picture of myself. I have 2 very active children, a wonderful husband, 2 dogs and cat. I love my friends. They are all very supportive but none of them have issues with their weight. I need support from people just like myself. I also have a chronic disability. I struggle with pain daily but I am making the changes in my life that allow me to do exercises that work for me. I have to admit, the more I exercise I think I am distracted from some the chronic pain. It is such a relief. I am no longer obese!! I am still over weight but NOT obese :)

I have stopped making excuses for what I can't do and started just doing what I can do. It sure is an amazing feeling when you surprise yourself by doing what you can do and it turns out to be more than you ever dreamed of.
Life sure is starting to look up!!

    I had cravings for my Girl Scout cookies this weekend but couldn't bring myself to open one of the packages. Why? Because I kept hearing you in my head about eating only one a day. LOL! Once that seal is broken I'm going to do my best to eat one cookie a day ... that would not have happened this weekend. Saved again. The cookies remain unopened in the freezer.

    Oh and through the mircles of the universe ... The Mr. was eating on some of his GS cookies last night - I finally caved and asked if I could have one. By the time I asked it was too late - they were gone. HA!

    How are you? What's going on in your world?

    Thanks for my SP goodie ... I sure could have used a hot soak after zumba class yesterday. It was great workout!

    I'm maintaining... I've had long hours at work and school and I'm just trying to stay awake for everything. I'm cutting myself some slack for the moment, but I'm not going hog wild with my eating either. How are you doing?

    I hope you're feeling better! Things are definitely looking up for me. I kind of had an epiphany while updating my profile: "Wishing for results is the opposite of working toward them." I can't keep slacking off and wishing I could do better, wishing I could have better results, I gotta just DO IT! I hope this week is looking up for you too!
