I've had a lot of starts, stops, ups, and downs over the past few years, and have come to a point that I understand that my health is so much more than my body. I certainly want to lose weight, but more than that, I want to be more healthy mentally - exercise gives me clarity and a centeredness that I don't find anywhere else.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world."

You are a doll and I thank you for the comment on my blog. I agree with EVERYTHING you said, and I loved the idea of the weight goal being a castle on the hill, and you get there and it's like what's next? Or it's not as glamorous inside as we hoped it would be.

Aw, your comment on my NSV blog made me smile...how you see inspiration from me but not to pressure me but to reinforce the good thing it is :) Thanks! I'm humbled but delighted that I can inspire others. You know something, you can too! You will and I'm sure you already have in so many ways that you may or may not be aware of. You just take this day with courage and don't you give up on the beautiful special you that you are! emoticon

thats awesome that you realize there is more to you that you like than dislike! Little by little, we realize that we *are* made truly unique, valuable, and beautiful! (Just takes us (or me) time to really realize, appreciate & embrace that!) You have a great day! emoticon
