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

Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 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 122 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 short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland by the middle of June-2015. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

Linda, hope you're doing great! I'm getting ready to move out of 240-ville. I really liked your idea of giving yourself a star when you move out of a -ville. I guess I'm going to give myself a star today. Thanks for the idea! Have a fantastic day! emoticon

Hi Linda! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words on my page. Congratulations, too, on your move down the scale. You will definitely make down to onederland if you keep an even keel. Remember that this is your life, not a diet, and that slow and steady will get you there and help ensure you will keep it off. You have to think every day that this is something you could do every day for the rest of your life.

It seems like we have a lot in common! I would be happy to share some poetry with you once the semester ends. I am going crazy right now with all the work that's coming my way. It's hard to keep balanced through the stress, but I'm doing my best. We've got this! emoticon emoticon

Linzee, I went by 200ville to get in line and it looks abandoned. I tried the leader and they're blocked. I bet there are other ways outta here! I'm pumped up and ready to go. I got my tracker and it says I'm stepping and burning calories. I bet it gets me moving around more.
