My life....my walk...my choice...

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Stop living life for what's around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street.
- Grant L. Miller, motivational guru

When I read this quote it brought to mind all the times I've chosen NOT to do something I really wanted to do, out of fear... How much of my life have I spent waiting to enjoy the walk down the street? No more... LIFE is right now, today, not tomorrow, not when I reach my goal weight.. but right now... I'm going to take that walk today and everyday.. it's my life and I will not let it pass me by.. How about you?
Have a great week!!!

    Love it! Great idea! You are absolutely right, how many times have I not done something because I was scared to? Or thought it might make me uncomfortable! I will try to do the same! Start living for me!

    Very wise words. I learned this about 2 years ago. My new puppy taught me this. I live in the moment. I have one chance to enjoy this moment, if I waist it, I cannot get it back. Look for all the wonderful things in life and continue to live in the moment.

I'm so happy right now, as I've finally made it to ONEderland with a 3.2 pound weight loss this week!!! YEAH!! I can't remember the last time I was under two hundred pounds and now I'm two pounds under!! I'm 22 pounds away from being at my ideal weight but only thirteen away from weighing what my driver's license states that I way weigh! LOL!

Everyone have a terrific week-end!!! emoticon

Just a walk... Remembering our Veterans!!!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Yesterday afternoon I stopped by the Vet's Cemetery for a walk and was so impressed with the parade of flags as well as the individual flags placed on every gravesite. It was an amazing site and really made me thankful for ALL the veterans who have done their part to protect and serve this wonderful nation I call home!! I love America and sincerely thank all of those who have served, are serving or will serve in any branch of our military! God Bless the USA!!!!

What a difference a year makes...

Friday, November 04, 2011

I weighed in this morning and lost ONE pound, which puts me at 80;5 pounds lost!! YEAH!! I then looked back at the calendar for last November, which is when I first decided to lose some weight and get healthier... On November 1, 2010 I weighed 281.7 pounds as of this morning I weigh 201.2 pounds! I'm so ready to be in the hundreds, which is my next mini goal!!!!
Everyone have a spark-a-riffic day!!!

    Think about how much pressure is off your joints. For every 10 pounds, equal 30 pounds of extra stress on your joints. Holey Smokes!!!!
