I'm Loving My Life

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Hi, my name is Denise McIllwain. I'm about 6'1 ft tall and have significantly amount of weight to take off. I'm married and have been for about 19 years. I have three children. I'm a diabetic and my blood sugar remains high. I'm on a healthy diet, but I think I might eat a little too much. I eat about 5 - 6 meals a day because that is what is suggested by my dietician. I want to get down to before I had my baby weight which was 8 years ago. I use to love exercising, but with college, work, and family life, that has become a distant past. I want to get back into exercising. I felt so good and looked it too. I want to get many buddies involved in my task so we can help each other. I plan to be the desired weight by Dec. 2012. It seems far away, but closer than anyone knows. So if you are revved up to do what is important, than lets get started!

That was how I started a year or so ago. Now I'm 76 pounds lighter and lost significant amount of inches. I'm blown away by my weight loss. I look great and feel wonderful. My husband can't keep his eyes and hands off of me. The best feeling in the world. I get so many compliments about the way I look and my confidence level. I can't stress how happy I am right now. I've been away from SparKPeople for awhile and now I'm BAAAAAAACCCCCCCKKK. Look at me....I'm going for Platinum. No more gold. It's time for the best. I have a regular routine that I do daily which includes going outside and running. I work on my whole self, not just the body. My mind is at ease and I have much tranquility and serenity. I'm at peace with myself thanks to my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. My blood sugar is normal and my blood pressure isn't so bad. I do not take insulin no longer or any type of diabetic medicine...Whooohoooo...I'm doing it!!! Go Denise Go Denise...lol

My Goals:
I would like to lose about 100 more pounds and get down to about 180 pounds. I can do that by the end of this year hopefully.

My Program:
I am eating healthy and running outside while my kids ride their bikes. I'm exercising inside with one of the best explosive dvds I've ever owned thanks to my mother. I'm drinking plenty of water and doing everything right. I watch ever little thing I eat. I eat everything just very small portions. It obviously is working for me. I'm exhilarated!!!!!!

Other Information:
Double your rate of failure. You think of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can because remember that's where you will find success. (Thomas J. Watson)

Every great man, every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavor, has known the magic that lies in these words: every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.
