I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I have finally gotten the courage to take control of my life and make a change.

To have a friend be a friend.

Love your body it is the only one you have.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

    emoticon I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your cat. I know how I felt when I lost my Jake and Nellie. Your cat was a furry family member and your grief is real. Feel sad as long as you need to. My current cats, Squeak and Ping, join me in sending you love and "kitty kisses."

    “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” ~ Dolly Parton

    I think I'm finally seeing glimpses of the rainbow after a very long rainy season! How about you? Is there a "rainbow" in your life right now or are you, like me, still looking for one?
    I believe our first step is staying strong on our wellness journey. Every step forward we move takes us closer to our rainbow!

    "Believe you can and you’re halfway there." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

    I don't know about you but believing in myself is hard for me! It's something I need to make a priority and to focus on daily. I need to come up with a mantra to repeat every morning and when I am doubting my abilities. Any ideas?
