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.

Has anyone told you lately just how amazing you are??
Its about time you heard it again.
I hear you saying, "Who me?"
I'm saying right back, "Yep, you.

You...
the one doing your thing,
making your difference,
being a glorious mess that God can use.

You... getting back up when you fall down, trying again when it doesn't work out, doing the hard, the different, taking those steps of faith.

You... wonderfully made just like you are, and on your way to becoming all He made you to be. I see you squirming in that chair, squinting a little at that screen and thinking,"That's for others but I'm not so sure about me." Believe it, receive it, it's true. This is for YOU.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14 NIV

Wouldn't it be wonderful
If every day we're living
We stopped to count our blessings
Like we do on Thanksgiving?
If every day we took the time
For gratefully expressing
Our thankfulness for every joy
And every little blessing...
Wouldn't it be wonderful
If we would just remember
Gratitude's a year-round thing
Not only for November!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Wishing you many blessings to count and many joys to remember
this Thanksgiving Day and all the days that follow! Your support and encouragement has been a real blessing in my journey!
