Starting over again. Not sure when I wrote the words below (at least one year ago), but they sound familiar.......however, I am STILL not giving up. Today is 1/20/14. I pray this truly WILL be my year to get healthy!

Here I go again.........I figure I have lost and re-gained hundreds of pounds over the past 20 years. Ugh. What a waste. However, I'm choosing NOT TO DWELL on this! Instead, I am going to focus on staying positive and never giving up! I have learned that when I am using SparkPeople, tracking my food & exercise, I see positive results! It is up to me to put in the time and make the effort. I don't know of anyone who has lost 100+ pounds, and gotten healthy by sitting on their couch. So, what am I waiting for? Seriously.... I am not waiting any more! I can do something positive for my health each day.

My Goals:
A few of my goals/motivators for getting healthy and losing weight:
being around to see my daughters get married, possible grandchildren, going ice skating, horseback riding, amusement park rides, body surfing in the ocean & gulf of Mexico, get off blood pressure medication, not be afraid of the camera, buy "normal" sized clothing, not have to wear a bra with ten rows of hooks in the back, I could go on and on....

My Program:
First and Foremost: having God in my life and doing His will. Including: lifestyle changes--healthier food choices, portion control, walking and Celebrate Recovery to deal with emotional eating issues, co-dependency, and all the other challenges that come my way!

Personal Information:
I have lived in mid-Michigan all of my life. I love traveling to Florida. I love the beach, the water and sunshine!

    When God permits His children to go through the furnace,
    He keeps His eye on the clock and His hand on the thermostat.
    His loving heart knows how much and how long.

    Hey Woman!! I hope you're doing okay. I'm at home sick today (stomach virus) so I missed the pool. I hope you were able to make it either yesterday afternoon or sometime today. :-)

    Hope to see you next week at the pool! Don't quit trying!!

    Take care, Mary

    I Said A Prayer For You Today
    by Frank J. Zamboni

    I said a prayer for you today
    And know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart
    Although He spoke no word!

    I didn't ask for wealth or fame
    (I knew you wouldn't mind).
    I asked him to send treasures
    Of a far more lasting kind!

    I asked that He be near you
    At the start of each new day;
    To grant you health and blessings
    And friends to share your way!

    I asked for happiness for you
    In all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care
    I prayed the most of all!
    Hugs, Teresa
