"The greatest achievement in life is to stand up again after falling."

Thank you Pikagirl I forget this sometimes...took me awhile but I finally decided to get back up!
I'm back in a big way!

It's HARD to be overweight.
It's HARD to lose weight.
It's HARD to maintain weight loss.
You just have to pick your hard!

My greatest inspiration is reading and seeing those you have reached their 100 lbs weight loss. I'm not there yet, but looking forward to it.

I'm anxious and scared for this will be something, I can add to my accomplishments.

I tell my children, Learn their Past, to Understand their Present, to see what needs to be Changed in the Future.

This was emailed to me today and I wanted to share!

Make this the day

Make this the day you come fully to life. Make this the day you take real, meaningful steps toward fulfilling the best of your possibilities.
Make this the day you experience, more completely than ever before, how great it feels to create a positive difference. Make this the day you commit to using your extensive skills, interests and resources to produce a real and lasting contribution to life.

Make this the day you hit upon a unique and valuable way to express the beautiful, authentic person you are. Make this the day you truly see the profound beauty that is in every little detail of life.

Make this the day you let go of the useless and destructive negative attitudes you thought for so long that you needed. Make this the day you connect with the power of sincere and positive intention.

Make this the day you rise above the pettiness and triviality that seek to drown you in a sea of futility. Make this the day you open your eyes to the grand and brilliant possibilities that are your life.

Everything up to this point has served as perfect preparation for the day that is now in your grasp. Make this the day you make it all count for something truly great.

-- Ralph Marston

I saw this poem on another thread and thought I would share.

GIVE A LITTLE ROCK TO A FRIEND.

I'm a little diet rock, As cute as I can be.
Although I'm sweet to look at, I'm both fat and sugar free.
When you get up each morning, Lift me high in the air, and set me on the floor 10 times, before sitting on your chair.
Please place me on the table, at the place you plan to eat. Then remember that I'm watching, What you do and what you eat.
When you are serving your plate, Please leave my section free, and I'll reduce the calories, by the space you leave for me.
After you have eaten, although I'm just a rock, Please slip me in your pocket and take me for a walk.
If you do this faithfully, then in a month or two, Although I'll be just the same you'll be a slimmer "YOU"

Can you see the Rose among the thorns?

A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it.

He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns? Saddened by his thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom...it died.

So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.

We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential.

Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.

Help others to realize they can overcome their "thorns". If we show them the "rose" within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over.

Wow great contributions all. Thanks for sharing. I guess all I have is what my mom used to tell me.

"That which doesn't kill us makes us strong!"

I recently read this one on an email and it went something like. God does not make a mountain you can't climb.

Sometimes it feel like God thinks I am a better hiker than I feel, but I try to keep that saying in mind hoping that I can in fact climb the mountain!!

Wonder

"Patience and Perserverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish" John Quincy Adams
My ancestor!!

I need to renew my goals. Keep it simple and keep it fun. Learn to love my body and my self too. Then I will not abuse myself with excessive food intake, I will honor my physical needs(the need to be fit!)

I want to share a peaceful thought...I found this in one of the threads and it touched me. I sometimes feel I am beating myself up when I fail or not happy on what I am doing. We all forget that if we are negative to ourselves our bodies feel it.
"So, beginning today, I am pledging to retrain my brain. I will replace the negative words with positive. I will learn to treat myself with the same encouraging and uplifting support I give to others. This cycle of self-depreciation will end because I AM WORTH IT!"

I have some fortune cookie wisdom taped to the hutch over my desk:

It's up to you to make the next move

Suppose you can get what you want

Share your happiness with others today

and

The greatest achievement in life is to stand up again after falling.

Here is a wonderful poem I had in my email today!


The Train of Life

Some folks ride the train of life looking out the rear,
Watching miles of life roll by and marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance of wasted days gone by,
And curse their life for what it was and hang their head and cry.

But I don't concern myself with that, I took a different vent,
I look forward to what life holds and not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine, as securely as I can be,
I want to be out on the front, to see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change, blowing in my face,
I want to see what life unfolds, as I move from place to place.

I want to see what's coming up, not looking at the past,
Life's too short for yesterdays, it moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy, while you are looking back,
Go up front, and you may find, your life has jumped the track.

It's all right to remember, that's part of history,
But up front's where it's happening, there's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward to another year and ten.

It's searching all the byways, never should you refrain,
For if you want to live your life, you gotta drive the train.
