WELCOME TO FROMTHISPOINT!

I began my journey here at my lifetime highest weight of 216 pounds. Diets, inactivity and my love of good food have had its way with my once athletic body. I have lost weight before on various programs and they all worked. Unfortunately, I lost weight but I did not change my lifestyle. Old patterns crept back into my life and the new ones were pushed aside.

I began my journey here at my lifetime highest weight of 216 pounds. Diets, inactivity and my love of good food have had its way with my once athletic body. I have lost weight before on various programs and they all worked. Unfortunately, I lost weight but I did not change my lifestyle. Old patterns crept back into my life and the new ones were pushed aside.

I completed treatment for breast cancer and to lessen the risk of recurrence, I must get this weight off permanently. I have been taking Femara since June 2012 and I have a lot of side effects including arthritis and anxiety. As a result of the pain associated with the arthritis, I do not like to workout. I know that physical exercise will help with anxiety and arthritis so I will start slow and increase over time.

With the help of Spark People, I am hopeful that I can reach my goal of losing 86 pounds.

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learned to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude... our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me

Everything you need to be successful on your weight loss journey is inside of you......so dig deep, if necessary, and push forward to meet your goal. Whether your goal is for the next hour, day, week or month you can meet it if you stay focused, positive and determined.
