Secrets of Success

This I Can Do



In 2001 I weighed 190 pounds and I am 5ish.
I looked into the mirror and saw a fat girl looking back at me. Her eyes didn't sparkle and her mouth neither showed a smile or a frown.
I sat down and cried.
What had I done to myself and why? Right then I knew I wanted to change.

My motto has been Health is my goal, weight loss is my gift.
Write yourself a letter. Tell EVERYTHING. It frees you to let go and move forward.
Believe in you. Trust in your actions

  • I started seeing myself in photos and just thought that the camera was adding the lbs. Then I saw an old fat lady looking back at me, but she is going away over the next few months and will be replaced with a gorgeous grandma.(lol) - by TARHEEL75
