Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. ~Robert Collier

It's the small efforts we make that get us through the day and onto the next. Walking around the block today will lead to walking around 2 blocks tomorrow. Taking 30 minutes to exercise will lead to an hour of exercise... it's inevitable... tomorrow will be a better, brighter day!

I constantly have to remind myself - "Don't give up"... "Keep going!" I make small efforts every day to keep myself motivated, to keep up the "good fight"... to WIN my war! And I KNOW through my hard work and determination... I WILL reach my goals!

My Program:
Eating healthier foods, in addition to tracking my calorie intake & expenditure by proper nutrition & daily exercise!

I have no "set" program, other than planning my meals ahead of time, and trying to plan each day first thing in the morning. I cut out all sodas & am working at cutting out almost all sugars. I walk daily in addition to taking care of a small farm animal rescue & squeeze in extra exercise where and when I can.

Personal Information:
I'm from Wichita Falls, TX. I'm married (since 2008), living in a small town right outside of San Antonio (LaVernia, TX.) I have 4 children of my own, and 4 step children. My husband and I share 3 grandchildren (and have 1 more on the way). I do not work outside the home - other than operating a small farm animal rescue on our property.

Other Information:
Some of my FAVORITE Quotes:
"All the so-called 'secrets of success' will NOT work unless YOU do!"

"Beauty comes in all sizes, NOT just size 5."

"Be not afraid of going slowly; Be afraid of ONLY standing still!"

"If you can't be the poet, then be the poem!"

"Nobody has ever drowned in their own sweat!"

    I never attempted to write books, just e-books (IT related) which were published at some point. My love is travel and my articles are published daily on our sites. I don't bother wt looking for printed magazines (at some point i got offers poring in my email but when i started to check what's the deal they were all no-names)

    hmmm my hubby's been trying to quit smoking for a while -- make it A LONG while! I don't smoke and I want him to quit but I cannot "force" him.

    I have to admit I'm bad at the exercise part :( And realizing I've gained 8 lbs since last year is not helping either. And I know exactly WHY. Ok, 8 lbs is not "that much" and I still wear the same clothes wt/out problems but my vanity is getting a big kick LOL

    I never dieted and I found SP exactly at the right time: 8 months b4 my wedding (i was writing some weigh loss/exercise articles and ended up here while doing research)

    Well, I *hope* I can keep you motivated b/c I'm having a heck of time trying to keep myself motivated :)
