For today

I've never been good at focusing on distant goals, so as I work on being healthier I'm really focusing on the idea that "for today" I will be supportive of myself and work to do what will help me in the long run

My Goals:
I start this journey at least 150 pounds overweight. My desire is to be an average sized woman, able to buy clothes in a regular store for regular people. I want to be as healthy as possible so that I can inspire someone else to take this journey and succeed.

My Program:
I am working to take an honest look at what I've done to myself and how I can change my attitude toward myself while I work on becoming more physically fit. I use walk videos several days a week, walke 30 minutes to an hour every night, find corie burning yard work to do, and work out with stretch bands. I work on keeping my calorie count below 2000/day. My main focus really is on changing my way of thinking when it comes to my lifestyle. The Word says "with God all things are possible" and I have to hold on to His promise that what I ask in His Name will be taken care of . I believe with His help I can do this.

Personal Information:
I'm origonally a Kentucky girl, now living in Indiana. I am 57 years old and have a married 27 year old daughter. She and her wonderful husband live in a neighboring town and have an English Mastiff for me to spoil.

Other Information:
"I can do all things through Christ Jesus which strengtheneth me."

I have many hobbies and interests. I go many places and present as a Christian motivational speaker, primarily to women's groups, and sing Southern Gospel music. I quilt, sew, knit, crochet, tat, paint, write, and anything else I can come up with. I garden, mostly flowers, and work in my big yard. God has richly blessed my life and I so appreciate His loving kindness.

Bricks are wonderful, we did look into those, and after checking out a lot of playgrounds, etc that had them, we decided to go with the bronze plaques simply because the bricks tended to wear down, and we didn't want that. But they do look beautiful.

Thank you again, for stopping by, it always lifts my spirits! emoticon

Is your lawn mower belt/pulley okay? Ours acted up and the pulleys were all chewed up. We had gotten a year old machine so it wsa used. It started getting kind of jerky going up hills due to this. Hope your retreat was good.

You bet I will, I won't let anything stop me, just like you don't. I hope you'd had a wonderful Easter weekend, sounded like you were, and that things only get better.

Have a beautiful day. emoticon
