After losing the bulk of my weight and kept it off for over a year Im ready to finish the job and get to goal! In October of 2009 I weighed 230 pounds and through tracking everything I ate, drinking water and walking the treadmill I went down to 145 by October 2010. My goal was 135. Since then I have went up and down between 150 and 165 and somewhat lost my mojo. Through my workplace I had participated in the "Naturally Slim" Program which has some great ideas but over all for me was counter productive. The concept of eating your favorite foods all the time was much akin to someone with a gambling addiction moving to Vegas. Epic Fail. So Im here, back to doing it the way I started and ready to find the finish line. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ That was in 2011. Wellllll............. I started post Grad school in Oct 2013. Now here we are in Oct 1015 and Im almost done with my Masters degree... and am back up to 218 pounds. This hurst my heart... literally. My tummy is so big it is uncomfortable to sit and forget bending over to try and put socks on. Not to mention I just turned 58. :( I have to fix this once and for all. And now 2017 2016 culminated in my graduating with my Masters Degree and being diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. So here I am, on chemotherapy and just trying to get through. My weight is back up to 210 and it is imperative I eat healthy right now but ultimately get the weight off as it is linked to increased incidents of breast cancer as well as poor prognosis in existing breast cancer. My faith in God is great and He is carrying me through this and I am grateful for the blessings He's bestowing on me daily.

    Your Dimension Of Greatness

    No one can know the potential,
    Of a life that is committed to win;
    With courage - the challenge it faces,
    To achieve great success in the end!

    So, explore the Dimension of Greatness,
    And believe that the world CAN be won;
    By a mind that is fully committed,
    KNOWING the task can be done!

    Your world has no place for the skeptic,
    No room for the DOUBTER to stand;
    To weaken your firm resolution
    That you CAN EXCEL in this land!

    We must have VISION TO SEE our potential,
    And FAITH TO BELIEVE that we can;
    Then COURAGE TO ACT with conviction,
    To become what GOD MEANT us to be!

    So, possess the strength and the courage,
    To conquer WHATEVER you choose;
    It's the person WHO NEVER GETS STARTED,
    That is destined FOREVER to lose!

    emoticon Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible." - Cherie Carter-Scott emoticon emoticon
