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 completed treatment for breast cancer and to lessen the risk of recurrence, I must get this weight off permanently. ...
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.

A quote from the Dalai Lama

"There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed.

~~~~The Five "W"'s of Life~~~~

WHO you are is what makes you special.
Do not change for anyone.

WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery.
Do not be afraid to explore.

WHEN life pushes you over,
you push back harder.

WHERE there are choices to make,
make the one you won't regret.

WHY things happen will never be certain.
Take it in stride and move forward.

These 5 "W"'s are
A Wonderful Way to Wake-up on Wednesday!!!
Enjoy the day!!
