Me as a young man with my pet dog.
The Amount of Weight I Will Lose.
Birthday card from a dear friend. Still laughing when I see it. :)
IUHRYTR is a SparkPeople Motivator!
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.
Be strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.
Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day anything can be overcome.
My screen name reflects that (I) am a (uh) writer (rytr) = iuhrytr in Orlando, FL.
To motivate others to believe they CAN meet and exceed their goals with God's help and the support of Spark People.
Start 9/16/2010 -- 290.4 pounds.
January 4, 2016 -- 259 pounds
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.
| current weight: 259.0
"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."

Hi Lou, I tried twice to respond to your concerns shout the house but after I wrote the message it would go back to zero. So... try again, Just really talk to God about the house and give him all your concerns. Pray he will guide you, I will include you in my prayers too. Blessings joanne

Stop using, "easier said than done," as an excuse to not change! Bringing your life to a higher level is challenging; get over it and rise to the challenge!

Life is like a camera...
FOCUS on what's important, CAPTURE the good times, DEVELOP from the negatives, and if things don't work out, TAKE ANOTHER SHOT."
Just keep filming!!
Hope you are having a great week!

We always book our motels online, so we can see upfront what their pet restrictions are. Most won't take dogs weighing more than 25 pounds. I wonder if we could tell them that Darby is 2+ dogs? Haha. We were delighted to find the motel not only allows dogs, but weight doesn't matter. The check-in lady even came around the desk and Darby made a friend.
When Darby does have to remain behind, she goes to a "pet resort" where they love her and she loves them. Once when we went to pick her up, she saw and greeted us then ran back to the employee. She seemingly didn't know whether she wanted to stay or go with us. LOL
Thanks for commenting on my blog.
