�Tell me and I''ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I''ll understand.� ~ Native American Proverb

I am strengthened by my weaknesses.
I am brave because of my fears.
I am greater because of my mistakes.

I am trying to get Healthier and show my guys that you can do anything you put your mind to. That hard work is it''s own reward

I am making better food choices. Eating Healther & following Portion sizes it the key, but hard to do. Just about everything here in South Louisiana is Fried or smothered in fats. But I AM doing this and am very pleased with the Will Power I''ve been using.

Member Since: 4/7/2009

Fitness Minutes: 50,311

My Goals:
I want to be able to keep up with my boys, get healther.
I don't want my children to think back on their childhood in a bad way and I don't want them to struggle with weight like I always have. I want them to learn these healthy habits and make it part of their lifestyle, so they can change the cycle. I promise not to become a fanatic about it 'cuz that starts trouble (ask me about my best friend) anyway, I want them to learn correctly at an early enough age.

My Program:
the old tried and true method of healthier choices, portion control, & exercise. Or to quote my old friends Walton & Johnson: "Eat less and move around more"

Any activities with my boys - we are a Cub Scout Family; so to have one in Boy Scouts

Personal Information:
I love this poem:

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me
NO matter how heavy my heat is
Or how sark the moment may be -
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me-
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
that darkness will fade with the mourning
And that this will pass away, too-
Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains
That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear -
For there is no night without dawning
And I know htat my morning is near.
......Helen Steiner Rice

Other Information:
I love Erica Spindler (she is also a Louisiana girl) - learned about her from my Old Friends "Walton & Johnson" They Rock by the way; do a morning radio station in the Gulf South. Based out of Houston - If you haven't heard them, you should - I'm a 10%er for life.
I also LOVE Janet Evanovich - she has this series about a Bail Bounds Woman - Stephanie Plum - HILAROUS!!!

    Hey Amy -

    I noticed you wrote on my status that you suffer from BED as well. I was just wondering if you have found any tricks to help you overcome it. I just realized that this could be the problem I am having and am not quite sure where to start to gain control so I thought I would reach out. :)
