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. :)

    ✫*Everyone Needs Someone*✫
    People need people and friends need friends
    And we all need love for a full life depends
    Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
    Not on success or on worldy fame,
    But just in knowing that someone cares
    And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
    For only the knowledge that we're understood
    Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
    And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
    When we "lock up our hearts" and fail to heed
    The outstretched hand reaching to find
    A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
    Are lonely and longing to somehow share
    Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
    That life's completeness and richness depends
    On the things we share with our loved ones and friends.

    THANK YOU for being a Blessing in my life

    ☆Life is a garden☆
    Life is a garden,
    good friends are the flowers,
    And times spent together
    life's happiest hours...
    And friendship, like flowers,
    blooms ever more fair
    When carefully tended
    by dear friends who care.

    ¸.•*´¨✫ Unseen Friend ✫¨`*•.¸
    Although you are a friend of mine
    and letters we exchange,
    I wouldn't know you on the street,
    and doesn't that seem strange?

    You hold a place within my life,
    unusual and unique;
    We share ideals and special dreams,
    and still, we do not speak.

    I picture what I think you are,
    perhaps you picture me.
    An intriguing game for both of us
    for someone we can't see.

    So for this friendship we possess,
    we owe this mail a debt,
    Perhaps the charm lies in the fact
    that we have never met.

    `·.¸✫`·.¸Have a Fabulous Friday!
    Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities!
    Without a humble but reasonable confidence in
    your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
