To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping�

So I keep stepping, or running, or dancing, hoping someday I reach my goal weight, but never too worried as long as I feel healthy and strong. I love this new life I am living and if I am constantly in worry about the scales then I can't really be happy, right? It makes sense to me. So every friday I stand on the scales and I am hopeful, but if nothing changes it is ok. I am inching, slowly and I'll take it!

    I know what you mean about learning to do things different. I LOVE turkey too. We dont usually have any company for the holidays so its just the four of us. I use to get a turkey breast only and I think I will go back to doing that again. Less waste and less temptation to keep snacking on the stuff! It is easier since I am not working. I use to work in a dental office and its CRAZY how many goodies arrive that time of year and none of it was good for us. Now that I am home I do not have those temptations as much so its nice. I LOVE my new job as mom!

    Love the by Christmas goal(mine is the same) but I had not thought about the clothing thing. That is so great. My mom thoguth I was crazy for setting a goal for that time of year but I think its perfect to keep me from being tempted through the holidays. :-)I know we can do it!!!!
