The first few steps...........are over. What started out as a "diet" is now a Lifestyle for me. I think that is truly the key to my success so far.

I have been here at SP for 2 years now & am thankful everyday that I have changed my life for the better

Year 1 - 50lbs gone
Year 2 - 15lbs gone
Still maintaining & working off the rest.
Maybe I will never reach the goal I chose, who cares. I can't be focused on what is still left, I have to be proud of what is gone (& never coming back)

According to my watch the time is now
The past is dead and gone
Don’t try to shake it just nod your head
Breathe in breathe out move on
Don’t try to explain it just bow your head
Breathe in breathe out move on

On a sad note, My Father passed away Jan 07, 2008
I am so sad, my heart is aching and I think about him constantly.

I Love you Dad, have fun fishing on the lake.

Instead of looking up the hill and seeing how far you still have to go, look down the hill & take pride in how far you have come.

Other Information:
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said "My son the battle is between 2 wolves - "One wolf is evil; it is known thru anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. "The other wolf is good and it is known thru joy, peace, love, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith". The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins? The old Cherokee simply replied "THE ONE YOU FEED"

    Hi MapleLeafMama, Haven't seen you around much on the Sunny Okanagan Team. How are you doing? Fantastic show on your weight loss ticker. I struggle to keep where I'm at.
    I notice you belong to the team Children of Parents with Dementia. I should check it out as I'm in the same situation. Barb
