Doing it a second time

Hi, my name is Linda. I've been overweight my whole life and have struggled to lose weight since my early teen years. I want to lose weight so that I can finally be happy with myself and feel completely confident in how I look and feel.

UPDATE: I never reached my original goal weight, but I was still pretty happy when I stabilized at 155. Now I've gained a little bit of it back and I need to get back on track! I'm calling this Round 2 of my fitness/health journey.

Exactly. The mentality is the best thing to have, the support around you is a definite bonus and makes it a whole lot easier. But in the end, you have to be able to rely on yourself.

One of these days I'll use that mentality to win my battle with chocolate and baked goods. haha

Delayed response is delayed. But here it is!

You wondered what my secret was to becoming so successful. Truth be told, it's not really a secret. I decided what I wanted to do, and I've put -everything- I have into it. I'm dedicated and determined. It was incredibly slow going at first and I'm so far beyond flat broke right now, but I feel right doing what I do and so I just give it all.

Now if I could only translate that success onto my physical self, I'd be set! haha!

Yes, my insurance covers the psychologist! I think I have a $30 copay, which is good because it would be prohibitively expensive otherwise (like $160/hr?)

I definitely think it helps just to have someone to talk to about this stuff. Things sometimes become clearer when can bounce ideas off of someone who knows the issues. emoticon

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain

Have a great day emoticon

Climb The Mountain


I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown
