THE TIME IS HERE TO START OVER AND NEVER TURN BACK!

Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 124 pounds to lose. This would put me in a normal weight range. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am ...
Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 124 pounds to lose. This would put me in a normal weight range. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed!!!

My mantra for 2014
~SUCCESS IS A CHOICE~

Personal Information:
I have two daughters Holly and Barbara. Two granddaughters Amanda and Brianna. Wonderful husband Paul. And I can't forget my little beagle Cocoa! I like go for hikes, nature walking, camping, gardening, reading, & cross stitching.

Other Information:
I AM GOING TO FINISH WHAT I STARTED :) April 23, 2014 is my new beginning, my re-dedication to finish what I started. I will be successful, I will cross the finish line, I will say someday "I DID IT"


FAVORITE QUOTES:

SUCCESS IS A CHOICE!

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try!

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are!

A person who wants something will find the way. A person who doesn't will find an excuse!

JUST DO IT!

BE CONSITENT!

The chief cause of failure & unhappiness is trading what you want MOST for what you want in the MOMENT!

Focus on what you CAN do not what you can't do!

It's NEVER too late to be who you might have been!

I may not be there yet but I am closer than I was yesterday:)

emoticon Today's quote is by C. JoyBell C.:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just dropping by to say emoticon . I am glad to hear that my stopping by your page with quotes is helpful to you. I find it motivating to me as well. Today I am sharing a quote by Dr. Seuss:

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. "

What wonderful advice this is. It is too bad it takes most of us so long to figure that out. So, here's wishing you the best day possible being yourself and speaking your mind. emoticon emoticon
