It's funny how a song can just 'click' with you! I use this one as a reminder when I start doubting whether or not I can reach my goals!

I used to think that I could not go on, and life was nothing but an awful song. But now I know the meaning of true love, I'm leaning on the everlasting arms.

If I can see it, then I can do it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it.

I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. I think about it every night and day, spread my wings and fly away. I believe I can soar, I see me running through that open door, I believe I can fly.

See I was on the verge of breaking down. Sometimes silence can seem so loud. There are miracles in life I must achieve, but first I know it starts inside of me.

If I can see it, then I can be it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it. Because I believe in me!

If I just spread my wings, I can fly!

Member Since: 2/1/2012

Fitness Minutes: 5,490

My Goals:
I want to fly on a plane without a seatbelt extender, to fit in a booth at a restaurant, to walk without being out of breath, to like the person I see in the mirror . . .

My Program:
Move, move, move, and move some more! To start with I'll primarily be walking and stretching. Right now it's all about getting off my butt!

Personal Information:
I turned 59 in June.

I have 150+ pounds to lose, yes, I am morbidly obese. That is so hard to admit!

I live in the Seattle area with a wonderful man; the kind of man I never thought existed anywhere but fairy tales.

I have osteoarthritis. I had my right knee replaced in Nov 2009 and my left knee replaced in Feb 2010 - the doctor says my hip needs to be replaced but I'm determined to prove him wrong!

Other Information:
I am going to participate in the Susan G Koman 3-Day in Seattle in September. That's 12 weeks from now!

I'll be going from an almost sedentary lifestyle to walking 60 miles in 3 days!
