I am a 56 yr old divorcee. My family has always been my life. I have always put everyone above myself. I love them dearly. And now, with health problems, I have realized that I MUST focus on putting ME first. An extremely hard thing to do. But I know it is a vital step I must take in order to enjoy my children and grandchildren to the fullest for a very, very long time. I WILL do this!

The future is only a mirror of the past unless you choose to change. Believe in yourself :-)

    Congrats on joining Curves. That's going to be so much fun. I currently go to 24 hour fitness, but for a while I went to a smaller private gym. It was nice because I really got to know everyone.
    I'm doing pretty good. I destroyed the holiday, but I'm taking action to recover. I really wish it would get warmer faster. It's been super cold in TX over the last couple of weeks (which is unusual). I can't wait to get back outside!!!!

    Have a great week!

    Happy Monday Cherie :) Wonderful to see your ticker way below the 200 mark...can't wait to get there myself some sweet day! I too have been lax in getting here and like you, attribute it to many areas--holidays, my travels, chgs in my personal and home life, etc---but no matter why we've been lax, I GOTTA GOTTA GOTTA jump back on track and like Nike, JUST DO IT!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon How 'bout you? I vowed to my fitness buddy yesterday to walk at least 2 times this week and to pedal at least 10 min daily...a start which hopefully will tell my brain and body it's not gonna be allowed to go back to the 'old' lazy me. We've come way too far and made too many positive changes to let go of our progress so as I write this, I'm feeling a lightening of my spirit that gives me much hope for the days to come. 2010 WILL be a year which exceeds our wildest dreams as we continue doing what we know works well. And so...I'm off to pedal those 10 minutes!

    I wish you a day in which you too, feel the urge to make getting healthy a priority. I so want to please God in my health. And I know He believes---we are SO worth it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Kathy

    Good morning Cherie! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for adding me as a friend and sending me such encouraging words. I've been snowed in and my daughter is taking me shopping today so that I can truly start eating healthy. Have a great day emoticon
