Getting rid of it! I think it's time. Don't you?

I wasn't always fat, and I'm not going to always be either.

Busy and forgot about YOU?

"For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again"

(Proverbs 24:16a

I know it's a crazy time of year right now. Back to school, back to work for some of you, vacations, you name it! However, we must take care of ourselves! We must squeeze that workout in, we must eat well most of the time. If we start thinking of it as musts do's instead of I don't have time do's then we'll see great progress on the scale, in our clothing size, in our attitudes, and in our doctor reports!

Please don't let yourself fall to the wayside while taking care of EVERYONE else's needs. YOU are important too! You matter! Your health and happiness matters! You want to be healthy...you want to feel good..and you want to be fit! So go get it! It's your's for the taking! Don't think you're too far gone...you've tried too many times...there's no point in trying again...that's Satan telling you those lies! As the Bible says....if you fall seven times...GET BACK UP!

If you fire yourself up daily then you'll reap your own rewards! I'm no different than any of you. I know what's it's like to be overweight, fed up, and to feel like giving up on myself. However, I also know the other side where I said enough is enough! Let today be your ENOUGH day! Draw a line in the sand and start fresh!

I signed up, because your words from Aug. 10, 2010 are EXACTLY how I am feeling now, "tried too many times...no point in trying again..." I want to GET BACK UP!!! I need to for me, which is SO all important and also for my family!! Today is my ENOUGH day!!! I truly needed to hear that. Even as I type this, Satan is saying, "you will ALWAYS be FAT!!!! Give up...eat some ice cream! It is SO hard and yet, I know that with Christ ALL things are possible. Thank you for your words!

Thanks you sweet girl. I find pleading insanity or just denying the whole thing to be key tools in life, oh, and never eating after 7 p.m., that's my new one. LOVE !

Are you a WW leader as well?

No, I'm not a WW leader. I worked there right after I made goal lifetime in Jan. 2005..I worked maybe a year or two there. I no longer do meetings. I do it on my own now.

Well said Carla!!! It's an every day effort and sometimes an everyday battle. I'm so glad that God's mercies are new every morning and that no matter what mistakes I've made in the past, I can always start again.

Beautifully said, Kimberlynn! Let's do this!
