2015 Winter 5% Challenge Commitment:

Lose between 10 - 15 pounds

********See action plan below***********

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Words that keeps me going ......

"If it is to be, it is up to me."

****************************************
"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsibility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

****************************************

�I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.� Jimmy Dean

****************************************

We can't change the cards we're dealt, only how we play the hand." - Randy Pausch

****************************************

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen

****************************************

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordan
