One Step More
A hill is not too hard to climb taken one step at a time.
One step is not too much to take, one try is not too much to make.
One step, one try, one song, one smile, will shortly stretch into a mile.
and everything worthwhile was done by small steps taken one by one.
To reach the goal you started for, take one step more, take one step more. James Dillet Freeman

I find the rewards of today in letting go of the regrets of the past. Anything I have done in the past no longer has a hold on me. I am living in this present moment and reaping the rewards of living for today.

Although I cannot see into the future, I know that the choices I make today may affect my health and well-being in the next few days or even years from now. So I rely on the wisdom of God to be the source for my decisions.

My goals for this year:

1. To be active on teams and with team mates
2. Make/Check schedule each day and prioritize time/activity
3. Take me time
4. Continue to keep journals (prayer and weight/food/exercise).

I appreciate all the people on my teams and realize how much support they give me. Between them and my hubby who is very supportive I feel I am very blessed.

    Just stopping by to say thank you for your posts. I enjoy them. Sorry to take so long to reply.
    I'm trying to think of what I weighed yesterday to keep me motivated to stay that way to weigh in and beyond!!! As long as I can still lose a little I'll be glad!

    Hope you're doing okay!

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    Your candle light's bright.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You shine bright through the night.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You sit on the porch.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You're a decorative torch.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    Your teeth so messed up,
    As you smile at the kids,
    As cute as a buttercup.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You bring me much joy.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You make the children overjoyed.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You're really a Jack-O'-Lantern.
