How do I want to be in one year? I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN CHANGE MYSELF! I am so stinkin' ANGRY!

I am so angry that I will NOT make the choices that I need to make in order to make MYSELF happy!!! WHY??? Why do I keep giving up? Why do I let myself FAIL after two or four weeks? WHY??? It's something that I WANT - I want it WITH MY WHOLE BEING.

I want to 'BE READY' for whatever God has in store for me!

We ARE saving and planning for a trip to England next year! 2013 how do I want to feel when I'm there?

MY REASONS FOR NOT GIVING UP:

I want to treat myself well - how I would want my daughter to treat herself.

I've been convinced that 'you are what you eat', and I want to eat healthy foods the MAJORITY of the time. I want the norm to be healthy eating, and when the exceptions come, they are okay.

About failure - because I am so- so scared of it. Someone made the analogy of going the wrong direction. That really hit me. When I am driving and I miss my exit or make a wrong turn, do I keep on driving the WRONG WAY? No! I turn around as quickly as possible. Lord, help me to see it that way.

Fitness Minutes: 2,563

My Goals:
To lose 80 pounds by August 2013 for a trip to England.

I want to be a positive reflection of my beautiful Savior, and to take care of His temple - ME!

I want to be healthy, and know that I've done the best I could.

I want my husband and daughter to be healthy - I set the tone, and they follow my lead. When I eat unhealthy, so do they.

I want to be healthy for whatever events are in my life. I don't want to dread traveling, swimsuits, getting together with extended family.

I want to be fit. I loved being fit in my early 20's.

I want to shop in regular stores - don't we all?!



My Program:
Exercise every day except nothing formal on Sunday.

I eat when I am hungry and stop when I am no longer hungry. I try to go to God for all those other things that used to send me to food!

I choose to eat foods that delight my taste buds and also work well for my body.



Personal Information:
I am a 40-year-old mother to one, and wife to my wonderful husband of 17 years.

Other Information:
I love Jane Austen, period movies, reading, exploring, hiking.

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Unknown emoticon

May your life be filled with Happiness emoticon Laughter emoticon Love emoticon Friends emoticon and Surprises emoticon .

Happy Valentine's Day emoticon

Thanks for adding me as a friend. You've got a good start on your weight loss goal. I'm excited to have you as a friend - As a Christian, homeschool mom on an only child, and future plans for England - we have a lot in common.
