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.

I am YOU!

I am just like you guys! If you're overweight...that was me! If you're fit...tha'ts me! If you're in the process of changing your life..that's me!

You really can do this too. You've got to want it...you've got to focus on it...you've got to work at it...and you've got to NEVER let yourself quit. No matter how hard it gets.. no matter how badly you want to quit....no matter how many people around you sabatoging you....keep working towards what you want! Never settle! Never think you're destined to be fat! Never think oh I'm in my 40's now it's too hard anymore! No, it's not! You can always change your body. Give up that extra treat today...save it for a special occasion and watch the scale drop and your clothes fit better! Push a lil' harder in your workout today and you'll see the same thing happening!

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit”

(Proverbs 18:21, NIV)

Don't use your tongue to say negative things about yourself! Tell yourself you ARE doing this! You'll get exactly what you say!

Hi there! Just wanted to give you an update. Yesterday was my ENOUGH day! I signed up for WW (again!) I left WW when I was 15lbs from goal, thinking I would "go it alone", but this was a bad idea. Although, I did not gain any weight in the year since I left, I did not lose any and gained frustration along the way! I did want to join again b/c it is difficult to find a meeting that did not take me away from my family. I have a tight schedule as I work FT outside the home. I truly prayed about what to do! I found a WW center which is 10 minutes from my church. I lead a Bible study on Tuesday evenings and am able to run to the meeting b/4 the study! Worked perfectly.

I also didn't want to join b/c I felt that if I joined, it meant that I was a failure, but this was not the case either. I am doing this for me. WW works! Why not go with what works?! My Firm Expess order has been processed and I look forward to starting the routine soon. I have other FIRM dvds and will look to add more in the future. Thanks for your encouragement and you are truly an inspiration!!!!

I've been struggling with 2 jobs to support my family and I've fallen back into some habits that caused me to gain weight in the first place. Thanks Carla for this pep talk! I really needed it.

Bless you heart, Donna, I'm sure working 2 jobs is really tough! I admire you for working hard to support your family. Just think how much easier those jobs will be in a healthy body. I'm here to support you and would love to have you posting with us in the forum area.
