I've returned, again. I had Gastric Bypass surgery on May 20, 2009 and I got promoted to a supervisor position at my job. I have lost 105 pounds so far. So much has changed for me and for once, in soooooo many years, I fight to keep my pants up instead of fighting to get them on. I can shop, do activities with my kids, etc., without being physically exhausted or incapable of doing them. God has given me a new lease on life. I am getting baptized on Sunday, October 24, 2009. I'm ready to have the past washed away and focus on the future.

"The past does not equal the future.
Because you may have failed a moment ago,
All day today,

Does not mean anything.
All that matters is
What are you going to do NOW? "
-- Anthony Robbins

"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything, is ready, we shall never begin."

-- Winston Churchill

---William Shakespeare

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great."
--- Mark Twain, writer and satirist

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
