Okay Okay I know this is not my first attempt at losing this darn weight but I am determined to be successful this time. I AM!!! I was not ready for the challenge last time to even begin it let alone be successful. My attitude had not changed. I closed myself off from other people instead of trying to reach out and participate. Maybe I could have helped someone else and they could have helped me. I let a chance go to waste because I hadn't changed my mindset.

I feel like I am much more prepared mentally than I was before and I am making a strong effort to participate with other members more. My two worse habits were smoking and eating - I have succeeded in conquering my smoking habit and now it's time for the weight. :)

    It's amazing what can truly happen, how your life can be so grand;
    when you give up trying on your own, and let an angel hold your hand.

    A friend is like a shade tree
    Beside a summer way.
    A friend is like the sunshine
    That makes a perfect day.
    A friend is like a flower
    That's worn close to the heart.
    A friend is like a treasure
    With which one will not part.
