I had to stop and read my page to remind myself why I am here.

My weight is out of control and I need to put my foot down once and for all.

I have dedicated my life to others, with no regard to my health or appearance. It is time to make myself a priority. I want to live a long, healthy life filled with love and adventure. It's time to live!

There is NO time like the present ... today is the only day that matters. Yesterday is history, you can't change it no matter how much you want to (now forgive yourself and move forward). Tomorrow, who knows what you will do. TODAY - What you choose to do today ... carries great consequences.

"To Thine Own Self Be True"


My Mantra ... (repeat 10 Xs each morning):

I am ready to embrace a fit future. To bring balance and contentment into my life. I am ready to achieve this goal I have set for myself. I am ready to keep my word to myself. My body is primed to release the extra weight I am still carrying. I will not abuse my body any more. I am ready to let my inner Goddess out ... I deserve to be happy and enlightened.

    No, I don't have any confidence at all. Neither result, pass or fail, will surprise me. I wasn't cocky about it at all and I studied my a$$ off in a very expensive and very intensive bar review course. But it's a grueling exam and you're subject to the whim of the graders and your answers are compared to other test takers. I know I did everything I could, and now I'm just trying to prepare myself for whatever might happen. I'll know Friday.

    Thanks for your support! :-)

    Thanks... I'll go wherever there's work. But primarily I'm interested in juvenile law and elder law. The neediest groups at opposite ends of the spectrum :-) I figure the adults in the middle can take care of themselves :-)

    I am doing good. Finally finished law school and took the bar exam in July. Waiting for results on Oct. 25. Not much new or different here other than that. Glad you're back!
