Fit & Healthy for a First!

I'm reupdating my intro. When I started Spark People I was 31 years old. I am now a little over 32 and I've been with my boyfriend for 16 years. BELIEVE ME when I say you can never go home again... at least not without losing your sanity! Lol. In other words due to health problems and a series of unfortunate events the only child is back in the nest.

I'm reupdating my intro. When I started Spark People I was 31 years old. I am now a little over 32 and I've been with my boyfriend for 16 years. BELIEVE ME when I say you can never go home again... at least not without losing your sanity! Lol. In other words due to health problems and a series of unfortunate events the only child is back in the nest. I'm starting my Sonography (ultrasound) program. 18 months of hardcore classes and a 100% job placement! When I moved in with my parents I also moved closer to my boyfriend. The result was I gained about 45 pounds in less than a year. I'm also on meds that make it easy to gain but difficult to lose. I miss my old life terribly. But I'm at my highest weight ever and I have got to get down to a fit healthy lookinh and feeling weight. I was anorexic in middle school and high school and in college I started purging anything I ate. Luckily I am past the dark depths of those days but I won't deny I still struggle.

Good morning and Happy Hump Day! Thank you so much for your continuing support of my journey. I really appreciate it! Today's quote is by Les Brown:

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”

Too many people like to blame someone else for everything so I find this a good quote to remind us that it is us who is responsible for how our life goes. Have a Happy Hump Day and a Wonderful Wednesday making the choices you need to achieve your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning and Happy emoticon day! Today's quote is by Wilbur D. Nesbit, Your Flag and My Flag:

Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today
In your land and my land
And half a world away!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes forever gleam;
Snow-white and soul-white -
The good forefathers' dream;
Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright -
The gloried guidon of the day, a shelter through the night.

My wish for you today is to remember the story behind our beautiful emoticon and may you fight for your freedom of a healthy lifestyle as much as our people have fought for freedom over the years. Have a fabulous weekend! emoticon emoticon

emoticon and Happy Hump day! My quote for today is by Alexander von Humboldt:

“I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves.
