We each travel this globe on our own quest. As we travel, we cross paths of fellow travelers who touch our lives. As some leave us, we shake our heads and wonder why they were placed into our paths. With others, the journey together has been rich and rewarding and each are better for having been a so-journer.

May each be blessed with finding persons who will help them on their journey so that they reach their goals.

My Goals:
1. To take this journey "one step at a time."

2. To be kinder and gentler with myself and with others.

3. To remember the tortoise and that persistence pays off.

My Program:
Making a commitment is the first step.

Increased activity level and sensible eating are key.

Giving and receiving support from others who are also working toward a healthier lifestyle is imperative to sticking with the plan.
