2014...the year of my success!

I am making imperfect progress!

Each day I get up and make healthier choices I am winning! Regardless of what the scale says! I won't let it determine my happiness any more!

Getting back up...dusting off my britches...and getting back in the game! Making simple changes to make a healthier life!

Pray, eat, move! That's my theme! Keeping it real and simple!

Pray more...eat more healthy choices...move more!

I know the journey isn't ...

I know the journey isn't going to be easy, but I promise to NEVER EVER QUIT! I AM worth it! I praise God that He has made a way for me to have freedom from the addiction that tries to keep me bound. I will not fear! I will go boldly into a healthier lifestyle that God has called me to! I will be healthy and free!

Remembering who I am:

I AM a child of God!
I AM beautiful!
I AM loved!
I AM forgiven!
I AM talented!
I AM smart!
I AM healthy!
I AM joyful!

I want to feel strong and energetic! I want to be happy and healthy! I want to be a healthy BMI! I want to look good and feel good! I want to be able to keep up with my kids! I want to be here for their weddings and babies! I want to grow old lovin' my man! ;-)

♥✞♥ I Am HIS & He Is MINE ♥✞♥
"Who are You, Lord?" He answered me: "I AM."
"But who is I AM?" I asked discouraged.
His soft answer filled my heart with fire, because I heard:
"I AM Love; I AM Peace, I AM Grace,I AM Joy, I AM the Way,
the Truth and the Life, I AM the Light, I AM your comforter, I AM Strength, I AM the Creator, I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End."
With tears in my eyes I asked softly, "But, Lord, then who am I?"

While God gently wiped away my tears, He whispered in my ear: "YOU ARE MINE."

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.

~☆~Don't Quit~☆~
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
when the funds are low and the debts are high,
and you want to smile but you have to sigh,
when care is pressing you down a bit
rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a fellow turns about
when he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
you may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
it seems to a faint and faltering man;
often the struggler has given up
when he might have captured the victor's cup;
and he learned too late when the night came down,
how close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and when you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems afar;
so stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
it's when things seem worst, you must not quit.

Hi , I'm also on Tiger Monarchs Team. I find I take Baby steps too, but was thrilled one day when I lost inches to get back into a "black" dress that I grew out of the scale didn't show much but I guess success can be measured in many different ways. P.S my goal is to be around the weight you are now sigh !! Keep up the good work.

Its better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backwards old chinese proverb

Found a poem by Emerson
"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can." Ralph Waldo Emerson:
wise man not sure it was written for a spark tip but sure hits the nail on the emoticon head for me
