Happy new year to all! I hope you all can accomplish the goals you set for yourselves this year. I believe that it takes a decision, one that can be backed with deep belief followed by action for your goal to become a reality and that is exactly where I am at and wish for you all to be. We have to keep at it, keep believing in ourselves, and making the changes that are needed to get where we are going. Best wishes to you all. I finally found the reason why I've been gaining weight and feeling so tired. Last week my blood was tested and came back my thyroid is not working properly so today is my third day taking thyroid medication. It felt as though my body was fighting every effort I was making to loose weight and it was odd that I had gained so much weight so quickly to begin with. I wasn't watching what I ate but I was not that horrendous in my eating. So now it's my new beginning, the med is not a quick fix but with a better metabolism and better eating I expect to gain control of my shape. 192 lbs was my high a week ago, I'm down 2lbs to a new start of 190 lbs. Everyone who is struggling to loose weight or is gaining for no reason should get their thyroid checked. A year ago I was 50 lbs lighter! I quit smoking, got on some meds and just let myself go, but it''s time to put the breaks on and take control. I''ve done this before and can do it again. I will make healthy choices, end this love hate relationship with food and get more active. Above all I will commit myself to loving myself at any size.

    I can't next week because I'll be in Detroit training and we have not found any close to where I'm at. I'll walk but it's not the same. Thanks for commenting. Have a blessed day.

    "The moments that you will remember forever.
    The ones of laughing until you cried, that perfect night, and the feeling of love in your arms.
    It's that endless song, that incredible book and most beautiful movie. It's the moments
    where you had to be there to feel it. When you randomly bump into someone you haven't seen or heard from in years. It's that feeling of receiving an unexpected gift.
    It's when you risk it all and put it all on the line. They're the inside jokes with your best friend.
    It's the moments of true happiness that come from the simplest things.
    These moments define our lives. They are our lives.
    They make life worth living and sometimes they reveal our weaknesses to the world.
    These moments are the most important thing in life.
    They make you feel incredibly and indescribably infinite."

    Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
    Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
    Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister (Mum I can't go to school looking like this!)
    Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall."
    but decides she's going out anyway.
    Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "hair too straight/too curly" -
    but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, so she's going out anyway.

    Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "clean" and goes out anyway.
    Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.
    Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore and goes out and conquers the world.
    Age 70: She looks at herself & sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
    Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.
