Aloha, I'm fairly new here. Hi. :)

I relate so much to what you've written. The financial struggles, the weight struggles, and more. I've started over so many times. What does that say about those who have started over and over and over again? Does is mean that we've failed and so we begin again... No way. What it means is that we are not quitters, we do not give up... failing is in giving up.

This year is going to be... NO, this year IS my year as well. I want so much for everything to be in order... I want to be at peace in everything. That's what I long for... peace and contentment. Weight peace, food peace, financial peace, home peace, joyful peace. I know the first place to go for that is My Lord.

God willing, I will find peace in it all...

I love this...

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make His face shine upon you
And give you peace, and give you peace, and give you peace forever.

Renee, AR, USA, CST ~ Live Aloha! ~

Whatever is good for your soul, do that.

When I stopped making excuses, I started making progress.

Thank you for your encouragment. I too am going back to stage 1, thanks to you. I feel like if I start all over, I can do this better. I have gained so much weight back. I can and will do better with the help of you people and the Good Lord. Thanks again.

Be the best you can be at this very moment and you'll have no regrets.

Hi everyone!

I have missed you guys since I have been away. My MBA classes just started back, and I have sorely neglected my SparkPeople!

I have been going through some struggles - as many of you know my husband and I were going through financially - and I think I was just dealing with my own craziness, really.

We are still going through, but now I feel like that is what it is - actually GOING THROUGH instead of getting stuck!

I did not eat properly, and I have actually gained two of my pounds back (am now 178 pds. instead of 176 pds.). I was sad about that, too, and I almost decided to just give up. In fact, today I ate 2 cups of banana pudding, and I was like, I don't care; it doesn't matter now that I am gaining the weight back.

But yesterday I watched an infomercial about an exercise workout video compilation called TurboJam. I watched those people dance and kickbox their way to physical fitness. Then I signed on to SparkPeople and began reading your stories. And I realized that it is nothing new to fall off. Everybody, somewhere, has gone through or is going through what I am going through. And it is okay - you just can't give up.

So I'm not. Even though I ate two delicious cups of banana pudding (I told myself I was still eating fruit :-)), I am not going to give up. I will chalk up this day to experience and start anew tomorrow.

But this time, I am going to be committed. I am going to do everything that is suggested by SparkPeople -keeping my journal, taking my pictures, following my menus, signing on everyday, using my time management skills, working out three days a week, setting reachable goals. I am even going to start over in stage 1 so I can start again. I am determined that by the end of this year - 2008 - I am going to be a healthy, whole, beautiful person - inside and out.

2008 is my year of WHOLENESS!!!! Hallelujah, I will be whole in Jesus' Name!

"With long life...YOU will satisfy me, YOU will satisfy me; with long life - I will praise you forever, only YOU can satisfy!"
