JES' TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SELF-LOVE

1. Accept yourself for who you are at this very moment. Appreciate the BEAUTY that makes you YOU:)

2. Be thankful for your blessings. You may not have everything you want but, you have ALL you need.

3. Make sure your worst enemy isn't dwelling in your own skin. Remember that you're always listening even if no one else can hear you!

4. Vow to take care of your body & work out daily! After all, it's the only place you have to live! Make it a happier, healthier place to reside in. YOU are your best investment.

5. Stay true to who you are & you will ALWAYS be happy! Gather all your crazy dreams, far fetched ambitions & big goals & build a life you love & are proud of!

6. Stop comparing yourself to who you're not! Girls compete with one another. Women EMPOWER each other.

7. Forgive yourself for every mistake, every heartbreak & every time you've fallen short. Self-forgiveness is a necessary & vital step to finding your inner peace.

8. Remember that you can't fix yourself by BREAKING someone else. ALWAYS choose kindness.

9. Focus your thoughts on what is good, what is admirable & what is positive. Never let your mind become consumed by negativity & hate. Never let your heart turn cold.

10. Say YES to adventure. Say YES to bliss. Say YES to the impossible. You never know when your heart will stop beating. Take the jump & free fall on the way down if you have to. Live with no regrets.

Don't blame anyone or anything for the situation you're in or the problems you've encountered along this journey through life. When you choose to blame other people or outside factors, you are saying that you're POWERLESS over your own life, which is complete & utter crap - - The first empowering step to reclaiming your happiness, your self worth & your life is admitting to the fact that everything that brought you to this point was solely your responsibility. That is true power, that is true strength!

MY MANTRA:)

I didn't HAVE the time
I MADE the time.

I didn't have ALL the knowledge
So, I did what I KNEW.

Not everyone SUPPORTED me
So, I learned to support MYSELF.

I wasn't the most CONFIDENT person
But, my confidence came with RESULTS.

I have A LOT going against me
But, I have ENOUGH going for me.

I have PLENTY of excuses
But, I CHOOSE not to use ANY of them.

- -UNKNOWN - -

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

YOUR body is a work of ART!!! It IS the vehicle for your SOUL!!!
It is as BEAUTIFUL today as it was yesterday & as it WILL be tomorrow! Choose to love YOURSELF at EVERY size!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you want to be happy, you have to be happy on purpose.When you wake up, you can't just wait to see what kind of day you'll have. You have to decide what kind of day you'll have!! Attitude is EVERYTHING!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

LIVE & Let LIVE :D :D :D

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

& I hope that in whatever situations you face & in whatever holds you back, that you show up to the PARTY that is YOUR life & DANCE the WHOLE time!! - - Whitney Thore - -

Member Since: 9/3/2013

My Goals:
1. To be an example of health & strength for my son.

2. To love my body at every size & to never forget all the amazing things it is capable of.

3. To end mindless eating!

4. To support, encourage & help to inspire my Spark Friends to reach their own goals!





My Program:
Dreams Only Die
IF You LET Them Starve!

It will hurt.
It will take time.
It will require dedication.
It will require willpower.
You will need to make healthy decisions.
It will require sacrifice.
You will need to push your body to it's max.
There will be temptation.
But, I promise you,
when you reach your goal,
every single miserable second will be WORTH it.



Personal Information:
I'm Jes:)

I decided to start my ticker over & start a new goal of losing 82lbs before our October of 2017 Wedding!! I am currently down 6lbs of my goal!!

I'm a stay at home mom & homemaker aka I am the luckiest!!!

I love my Mister, Al & my Little Mister, Maddox, more than words can express!

I am open minded, free spirited & a hopeless romantic to the core!

I am a dancing queen!

I believe in happiness & support equality & the right to choose a life that results in happiness!

I am an Iowa girl, born & raised! I love my Midwest roots & the killer work ethic this lovely state has helped to instill in me!

I love, love, LOVE my life & am working on making it even better!

Lifting weights, doing yoga & writing are the equivalent of therapy for me!

I am OBSESSED with beautiful words & untouched, peaceful & raw places & spaces.

I'm a thrift store goddess, a rummage sale junkie & a 24/7 bargain sale hunter!

I'm jus


Other Information:
I intend to accept my body today, love my body tomorrow & appreciate my body always.

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful!

If it's important to you, you'll find a way - - If not, you'll find an excuse.

You are far too smart to be the ONLY thing standing in your way.

Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.

Destroy what destroys you.

A ship at harbor is safe but that's not what ships are for.

Be an ENCOURAGER; The world has plenty of CRITICS already. - Dave Willis

You ALWAYS have time for the things you put FIRST.

A comfort zone is a beautiful place but NOTHING ever GROWS there.

There is ALWAYS room to be a BETTER person! ALWAYS!!

True Success is liking YOURSELF, liking WHAT you do & liking HOW you do it.

    Thanks for the idea on the pants. It has been a hectic day today with it being Natalie's birthday and my first day at the new position so I am about to run out of time tonight but tomorrow night I am definitely trying that out. I still managed to squeeze in 3 miles tonight so at least I got something accomplished. I wish you an entire week of "great days" like you had today. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Hi Jes,
    Welcome to the Partnership Accountability to the Finish Line team! We are happy to have you with our team. Please feel free to introduce yourself to the team, if you have not already done so. Be sure to read the thread: Click Here: To help find a partner and learn what to do next". It will help you find someone who has similar goals, likes, dislikes, or someone close to your age if you prefer. You will both be able to support, encourage, and just be there for each other, while on your way in reaching your goals.

    If you need help finding someone or help of any kind, please let me know, as I am here to help you in anyway I can. Hope you enjoy and are able to achieve your goals on this team or any others you might join.

    Have a great day!!
