Starting over...again!

I've been overweight my whole life. I've only lost weight successfully once, but only maintained it for a few years. I'm now back where I started. But I'm not giving up! So, I've just reset my goals and I'm ready to do this!

emoticon To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade. emoticon
emoticon To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. emoticon
emoticon To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. emoticon
emoticon To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

emoticon To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident. emoticon
emoticon To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics. emoticon

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

~~~~~ emoticon ~~~Patience~~~ emoticon ~~~~~
Let's be realistic. You won't drop two jean sizes in a day.
You won't lose 50 lbs. in one month.
You're going to binge every now and then.
You will go a day or two without working out.
Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there.
You're going to try new techniques, and they're aren't going to work.
You're a human being. You're going to fail.
But nothing great is accomplished without a few obstacles.
So, when you come to those obstacles,
tell yourself "I CAN DO IT," and JUST KEEP GOING!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon You CAN conquer the obstacles emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~I HOPE~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope that one day you buy every pretty dress you´ve ever wanted.
I hope you wear them and dance barefoot in summer and laugh.
I hope you smile at all the little things, like flowers, the wind blowing in your face. raindrops,
the smell of fresh cut grass and the laughter of children.
I hope you get that tattoo you´ve always wanted. I hope you learn to speak French Fluently.
I hope you go to Paris and NYC and get lost, and you will be found.
I hope you never stop singing, even when people tell you that you can´t – in fact,
especially then, that´s when I hope you´ll sing the loudest.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I hope you buy a bracelet everywhere you go,
or something you´ll always remember that place, until your whole arm is filled with them.
I hope you Love God with all your heart. I hope you stop beating yourself up
about everything that´s out of your control.
I hope you have the guts to speak up when something is important to you.
I hope you step out of your comfort zone.
I hope you fall insanely in love with someone unexpected.
I hope you forget about your scars – inside and out –
and in the middle of all this strange and beautiful world you learn to be happy.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon emoticon I hope you have a Sensational Sunday! emoticon emoticon

“Once in a while, amidst all your bad days, you’ll have a good day. A great day even.
Make sure you remember those days. Keep them safely in your pockets,
maybe even in a jar on your desk because you need to know that there are and will be
better days. You need to remember how on those days you felt warm inside,
like you’ve just drunk a hot cup of tea; like a small fire was ignited inside of you.
Hold on to that warmth. And never let it go.”

emoticon emoticon Have a very, very warm Friday, hold on to it & enjoy it! emoticon emoticon

“To get up when you are down, to fight more intensely when you are struggling;
to put in the extra effort when you are in sheer pain,
to comeback when nobody expects you to,
and to stand tall when everyone is pulling you down are what make a champion”
~ Apoorve Dubey ~

emoticon emoticon emoticon Have a Terrific Thursday!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
