If you stumble across my page I just want to say Hi.

I am a shy and introverted girl who has a lot to say. I keep a blog if you might be interested. http://cowardly-lioness.blogspot.com/

I am very overweight and truly WANT to lose weight ... not for health issues, not because I want to impress anyone, this is for ME. There may be many issues which are incentives, but they are not the primary reason.

My therapist is such an incredible lady. She told me I have to want to do this. Only recently have I understood what she meant ... and I do want to.

I have been a food addict all my life and never realized it. I turn to food for sorrow, for stress, for boredom and for celebrations.

Saying this is not easy, but acknowledging it is the only way I can move forward.

I have set many milestones along my path to assess my progress. As reach the smaller goals I will give myself credit for what I have done rather than pointing out that I still haven't completed the journey.

I cannot do this alone ... luckily I have my beautiful wife Pam to help me. I have already made many new friends here, and hopefully will make more as time goes by.

    Super Friday! Those negative thoughts we get, the negative comments or negative posts some people leave on our page or feed are like gangrene…cut them out! You’re already beautiful! SparkPeople is where we came to get help in becoming healthy. We cry with each other over the disappointments, sorrows and pain we experience. We laugh and cheer with each other over the successes, accomplishments and rewards as they occur. We can empower ourselves and each other every single day with a kind word or gesture! Feel empowered!!! (Reggie’s Philosophy)

    Good morning! Are you tired of watching what you eat, finding time to exercise, trying to do things up differently to stay interested and engaged? It’s at those moments when we’re wondering if it’s all worth it we need to dig deep into our inner person, the one so far deep, deep inside and find the will to continue. Staying on track takes effort and time, but it can be done!! Let’s get to it!! (Reggie’s Philosophy)

    Hi! Motivation starts with a thought...if we're positive we will succeed, then we will succeed...if we're positive we will fail, then we will fail. Let's think positive thoughts of success! Together we will succeed!!!!

    I really like your writing style... I was laughing and smiling. :) I found you from someone's comment about dancing, so I looked and first checked your "dip" blog (could've been about dancing) then I read the right one! LOL Thank you for sharing!
