Early Weigh-In

Saturday, February 18, 2012

My normal weigh in day is Sunday, but we're going to be out of town (again) this week-end so I opted to weigh in on Friday!! I was pleased to see my weight drop another 2.8 pounds! This puts me within 10 pounds of my goal; which is the high end of "normal" on the BMI scale!!! (95.5 pounds down)!!!
Also, I am completely out of size 16...they were just getting too baggy to feel comfortable... so the slacks/jeans I'd been hanging on to, to intermix with my 14's are now in the Goodwill box!!!

    Great job! I know you'll be hitting your goal soon. Love to pack up "big" clothes and donate them!

Rocky Balboa Quote

Friday, February 17, 2012

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But, it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!
Rocky Balboa movie

Borrowed from a fellow Sparker!

Thursday, February 16, 2012


Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence any goal is within your reach.
Even if no one believes you, insist on being truthful. Keep the power of truth always on your side.
Even if you can't see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some proress, you'll find new ways to make even more.
Even if you results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
Even if you've been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now.- Ralph Marston

I read this on another blog the other day and just had to share it with even more people!!
