Embracing The Possibilities

Reached my highest weight of 509 lbs. in May of 2009. I was 30 years old and knew I had to make a change. I set a goal to reach 299 lbs. I lost 121 lbs in less than a year only to gain 78 lbs back. May 5, 2012, I weighed 466 lbs and began my journey to 299 again. I reached 299 lbs. on July 15, 2013! Now I am on to bigger and better goals!

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
Martha Graham

I am leaving SP the end of the week. Met my 50 pound goal and want time to pursue other interests! I'm doing well and hope that you are too!

We need to focus on "planting one seed" (one small step forward) to grow our successes every day.

I read this in the current issue of Woman's World magazine and loved the message!

Believe and Achieve! "I can" and "I will" are so much stronger than "I can't" and "i won't." Hope always outlasts doubt. Negativity only has the power to hold you back - but positivity has the power to make things happen.
