Fitness Minutes: 6,261

My Goals:
To feel better and feel better about myself.

I want to be able to buy clothes at Walmart and Goodwill.



My Program:
I'm on the Hobbit Diet- you know the one where you eat about 6 meals a day.



Personal Information:
I live in York County, SC where my family has been for hundreds of years. I have three wonderful adult children (ages 22, 23, 25) and a husband who all do not realize they are adults yet.


Other Information:
I love to quilt (mostly art quilts now), read good Christian Fiction, cook (obviously), and look up my family tree (you might be surprised at what you'd find in yours). I also like to go to car shows in the summer. We have a '74 Plymouth Duster that has won quite a few trophy's and I just bought a '68 Plymouth Barracuda!

    “Get Off The Scale! You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

    Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

    It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

    STAND UP by Jessie J (shared by AJ, ANYA_ONION)

    If you surround yourself with negative people
    You'll never feel settled in or become an equal, no
    They'll suppress you of your spirit and rinse you dry of smiles
    So reach deep and release your inner child, yeah, yeah

    If you let a frown become your normality, yes
    You don't set an example for the youth of our humanity
    If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
    Aged and lifeless is what, yes, you'll become, yeah, yeah

    So ignore the bad and the good will soon come
    Don't think second best, be number one
    Spread some love, don't give to receive
    Strive to be happy and live to believe
