Sharing a quote:
The scale is only a guide. If you stayed within your calorie range, you did not deposit any new fat on your body. Tell yourself that the scale can sometimes hold on to extra water, leading you to think that you are not making any progress. Before you go to bed, pat yourself on the back and tell yourself, "I stayed within my calorie range today; therefore I did not gain any fat." Tell yourself that and stay on plan.

We are soft and feminine, pretty and stylish.
We are strong in heart. We keep going on and on.
We persevere...
Women are dependable, loving, and caring.
We keep our men going, when times are rough,
We are very tough.

There are all kinds of beautiful women in the world...
All shapes and sizes, different personalities.
We make up a good part of the world,
We go through a lot.
We get the worst end..of breakups and heartache.
We get the emotional baggage, the periods, the cramps,
But that is only a small fraction of who we are.

We can be anyone we want! We're independent.
We can be doctors, lawyers, teachers,
Journalists, surgeons, accountants, or soldiers.
The world is our oyster, and we are the pearls.
Love fills our souls...we are so full of life.

We shine like diamonds in the night sky.
We may rise and fall, but through it all,
We stand up tall.
emoticon emoticon Let's Be Strong Women emoticon emoticon

In life you'll realize that there is a purpose
for everyone you meet.
Some are there to test you,
some will use you, some will teach you, and
some will bring out the best in you.

~**~**~**~**~**~GOOD MORNING~**~**~**~**~**~
Ability may get you to the top
but it takes character to keep you there!
Be more concerned with your character
than with your reputation.
Your character is really what you are
while your reputation is merely
what others think you are.
No one is born happy
but all of us are born with
the ability to create happiness.
So today make others happy.
