Hi. I'm 41 years old and the mother of an awesome 7 year old daughter. I've been married to my hubby for 12 years but we've been together for 17 years. I followed an eating plan for many years while in my 20's but after some deaths in my family and with friends, I lost control of my eating and emotions. I'm ready to start again. It's going to be a long battle (this is the highest my weight has ever been including the day I gave birth!!) but I want to be around for a long time so I can enjoy my family.

Quotes that I've heard or have seen on other pages that inspire me to keep going....

My new favorite quote: "Do what you feel in your heart to be right-for you'll be criticized anyway" Eleanor Roosevelt

"Promise me you'll always remember, You're braver that you believe, and stronger that you seem, and smarter that you think."
Christopher Robin to Pooh Bear

"Be very very careful what you put into that head, because you will never, ever get it out."- Thomas Cardinal Wolsey

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit" Aristotle

"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me."

"Have the strength to be yourself" -member on here

"You want me to do something; tell me I can't do it." ~ Maya Angelou

"Being overweight and unhealthy is HARD. Losing weight and getting healthy is HARD. Pick your HARD"-member on here

"If you feel as if you just can't go on any longer...Close your eyes and remember why you started in the first place."

"SUCCESS is in the art of recovery!"--My former WW leader :)

"Failure is not falling down, it's staying down"

"You are either making progress or making excuses"

"Someone who is busier than you is running right now"--read this somewhere on here (?)

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." Mark Twain

"Most barriers to your success are man-made. And most often, you're the man who made them" Frank Tyger

"You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened...or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on." Tupac Shakur

"Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still" Chinese proverb

"All food goes to waste, it doesn't all have to pass through you first!"

"You know when it is time to take care of yourself, for yourself. To do something that makes you stronger, faster, more complete, because you know it's never too late to have a life and never too late to change one. "

"Some people follow their dreams, others hunt them down and beat them mercilessly into submission. "
Neil Kendall

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought."
