emoticon Pat. So glad you've joined us!

My journey has been a long one too ... starting out at 300 pounds. But, this is something that we can do. One day at a time! And together, it will be easier ... support makes it much better!

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hello everyone. My name is Pat and I live in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. I have been struggling with weight my while life. I come from a very disfunctional home and married the wrong person to get out of the situation. This marriage is over now and it is time to look after me. I am working hard on changing a lifetime of negative thinking. It's not easy, but I have come a long way. I still have a long way to go though. But, I will get there.
