Every day you eat sensibly makes it that much less likely you will overeat again. The new you will become the only you in time. Your inner self will catch up to your outer self in time. No matter how many years you spent building up a self-image labeled fat, frumpy, foolish, failure, it can be destroyed and replaced by the knowledge that you are attractive, effective, and successful, inside and out. Give yourself that time.
My goal is to get rid of this excess weight. I am currently working on the next 5 pounds.
Update-July 2005 - I have lost 15 lb. I hope to be under 200 by September.
I did not reach my under-200 goal by September 2005.
I will be happy to be under 200 whenever it happens.
Update (July 2007) - I am still fighting to get below 200. The difference is that this time I am going to do it. Seven more pounds....
August 22, 2007 - at last I am 199. On to the next challenge.
April 3, 2017 - Ten years later and I have not reached my goal. In fact, since 2017 started, I have been going in the wrong direction. Yes, I am older but I have seen success stories for older women. I really want to be a success so that I can be an encouragement for others. Unfortunately, my energy has been almost nil. I want to eat so that my energy improves and I can get back to signing up for 5K's again.

THE LAW OF LIFE
Whatever you give away today or think or say or do
Will multiply about tenfold and then return to you;
It may not come immediately, nor from the obvious source,
But the law applies unfailingly, through some invisible source.
Whatever you feel about another, be it love or hate or passion,
Will surely bounce right back to you in some clear (or secret) fashion;
If you speak about some person a word of praise or two,
Soon tens of other people will speak kind words of you.
Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul, not secrets of the brain;
Kind ones bring us happiness petty ones, untold pain;
Giving works as surely as reflections in a mirror —
If hate you send, hate you'll get back, but loving brings love nearer.
Remember as you start this day, and duty crowds your mind,
That kindness comes so quickly back to those who first are kind;
Let that thought and this one direct us through each day —
The only things we ever keep are the things we give away.

Easter needs a garden where its peace and joy may grow, like daffodils that brightly bloom above the melting snow. So find a little time each day that you can set apart to cultivate some flowers in the garden of your heart. And then, throughout the busy days your happy heart will sing. And to the people that you meet, you'll be a breath of spring!
Wishing you quiet moments to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you...to think about the blessings in your life and feel renewed by the promise of Spring.

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
