All I want for Christmas...

I am getting close to my 1st year of really stepping into this lifestyle change! So many things have happened this year and I am amazed I haven't gained back any of my weight- I have dealt with plateaus- and I am still trying to bust the latest one, but I have not regressed like crazy!

A year in review:
This year I have found myself in a much better place than every other time I have attempted this journey! It is no longer about promises, but more about action. From Jan - ...
I am getting close to my 1st year of really stepping into this lifestyle change! So many things have happened this year and I am amazed I haven't gained back any of my weight- I have dealt with plateaus- and I am still trying to bust the latest one, but I have not regressed like crazy!

A year in review:
This year I have found myself in a much better place than every other time I have attempted this journey! It is no longer about promises, but more about action. From Jan - March I lost 15 lbs! From March to June I maintained that loss through stress, horrible eating at times, and very little tracking and exercise! From the end of June till beginning of December I have lost 8 more lbs! I joined a gym, got a trainer, worked through a lot of family life changes and stresses, and now I am getting ready to enter the holiday season.

All I want for Christmas- is continued progress in my goals, more follow through with balance in my life between work and home, and time with family without the stress of trying to take care of everything else!

******THE ROAD OF LIFE HAS MANY TURNS******

Sometimes the road of life takes us to a place we had planned....

Sometimes it shows us a surprise around the bend we could never have anticipated. We make decisions based on the information we have...We accept our ups and downs as they come...We live "one day at a time."

But often we find it is only when we look back that we can see that what we had thought was a "wrong turn" has brought us to exactly the right place and every step was a right one after all!!

Thank you for letting me share this with you!!

I am sending something that is so true, but humorous....ENJOY!!!

---------------TOP TEN REASONS GOD CREATED EVE---------

10. God worried Adam would be lost in the Garden of Eden, because he wouldn't ask for directions.

9. God knew that someday Adam would need someone to hand him the remote. (It has been noted that men don't want to know what's ON TV, they want to see WHAT ELSE is on).

8. God knew that Adam would never make a Dr.'s appointment.

7. God knew that when Adam's fig leaf wore out, he would never buy a new one for himself.

6. God knew that Adam would never take out the garbage.

5. God wanted Adam to be fruitful and multiply, but he knew Adam would never be able to handle labor pains and childbirth.

4. As "keeper of the garden", Adam would need help in finding his tools.

3. Adam needed someone to blame for the Apple incident, and for anything else that was really his own fault.

2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone.

1. And the No. 1 reason of all (Tada, drum roll, fanfare) God stepped back, looked at Adam and declared " I can do better than that".......(AND HE DID)

----------HAVE A VERY WONDERFUL WEEKEND---------------

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." ~ Lou Holtz

We all know what we need to do to reach our personal success and we all have the ability to do reach that success - now we need to make sure we have the motivation and positive attitudes to match our abilities!
May every one of your todays be a little better than your yesterdays!
