I am a married 44 years young, Part time working Mom of A girl and a boy, both in High School.I have been struggling with my weight since my son was born 15 years ago. I want to not only lose weight, but have a positive healthy outlook /Mindset about my body, and in my life.And of course look as great as I Did in my early twenties ,but that would be just a bonus!
Like to share some quotes here that I find relevant to my purpose here, and in my life in general;
Hope they speak to you as they did me.
You can not find your soul with your mind,
You must find it with your heart,
You must know what you're feeling,
If you don't know what you're feeling,
You will create Unconsciously,
If you are unconscious of an aspect of yourself,
If it operates outside your field of awareness,
That aspect has power over you...

-Gary Zukav

by I-AM - DEBY.Thanks Deby!

Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another,
Forming new wishes and seeing them Gratified,

- Samuel Johnson

This one I found on my daily inspirations from Belief.net:
Ride on! Rough Shod if need be,
Smooth shod if that will do,
But ride on!and win over ALL obstacles,And win the race!

-Charles Dickens

"You have to believe it to achieve it!"

"When you have a great and difficult task, perhaps something almost Impossible, if you only work a little at a time ,every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself".
- Isak Dinesen


"If we don't change , we don't grow, If we don't grow, we really aren't living.Growth demands a temporary surrender of Security". - Gail Sheehy

What is harder than rock, or softer than water?Yet soft water hollows out hard rock. PERSEVERE! - Ovid
Life is not knowing,Having to change, Taking the moment and making the best of it,without Knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity! - Gilda Radner
