"Confidence is not a guarantee of success, but a pattern of thinking that will improve your likelihood of success, a tenacious search for ways to make things work." - Dr. John Eliot

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." - Teddy Roosevelt

"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love." -Goethe

"Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning." - Mahatma Gandhi

Fitness Minutes: 37,954

My Goals:
My short term goal is to lose at least 25lbs. (total) by April 2013. My long term goal is to maintain my healthy lifestyle and to incorporate jogging into my program. ( I'd like to go for a morning run before work )

: )

My Program:
I like to hike the trail @ Kenneth Hahn, then do crunches, squats, bridges, etc in the evening (every other day). I use dumbells and the resistance band to strengthen my arms, legs, and back.

Also, until I am satisfied with my constant & steady weight loss, I only weigh myself once or twice a month (or so, for now), so I won't feel that bit of disappointment if I don't lose weight that week. Just because I know that I can do it (more like I WILL DO IT!)!! I AM accomplishing what I set out to do. No matter what the scale tells me. I'll just wait (to weigh myself), that's just me....

Best wishes & blessings to all!

We're all in this together! We can do this!!!

    I know I know, I sound like a broken record - BUT I WILL NOT GIVE UP ON YOU. You are all here on this site, on this team for support so GOSH DARN IT - I'm going to give it to you. I know for me the road this year has been difficult and my track record for keeping my goals has been less than perfect. However, I refuse to give up on myself or YOU!

    So come join us this week on our United We Shed - The Weight weekly team challenge topic as we embark on a New Year and tell us about your goals and let's take this one week at a time towards our dream weight and healthy lifestyle.

    Have a great week!!

    Health & Happiness
