Will Lose Four Bowling Balls

My name is Lou. I am an experienced editor and a published writer. I am also an avid bowler and know how heavy those 16-pound bowling balls can be. Because of physical injuries my weight jumped and I now will lose the equivalent of four of these orbs.

Mental strength is necessary for physical strength.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Mental strength is necessary for physical strength.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Be strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.

Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day anything can be overcome.

It is easier to focus on losing one pound than 20 or 50 or 100. So aim for only a one pound loss, celebrate your success when you lose it, then shoot for one more pound until you reach your goal.

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
Have a great weekend and hope you are setting healthy goals for May! Will you dance around the Maypole??

Thank you for your comments on my pitiful blog from last night. After writing it, I crashed in bed, so I didn't see it until just now. I'm sure the cold soak for my feel would have felt good but I probably would have fallen into the tub, asleep. Haha

I most certainly DID enjoy sleeping in this morning.

We had a big turnout for a primary, but can't quite figure out what took so long. Yes, the ballot was long, but some people apparently thought they could 'homestead' at the machine. emoticon Oh well, at least we got home again around 10:15 after delivering supplies to the Election Board.

Thank you, Lou, for your kind thoughts on my blog. I do feel loss, but God is Mercifully providing the comfort I need.

I pray your back surgery will soon be a fact instead of a hope that the insurance company will wake up and realize that DOCTORS know what they're doing and if they say a patient needs surgery, then the insurance should cover it without a fuss.
