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.

    Your new job is someones old job.
    Your new excuse is someones old excuse.
    Your new health plan is someones old heath plan.
    You may not be chartering new waters in finding the new you, but you can be positive and have fun along the way.

    Evening Tiffanie! If you give up now, how will you ever know you could have succeeded? No matter the cost or sacrifice, keep pushing yourself beyond your own boundaries. Make this minute the minute of decision and break free of your self-made limitations!!

    Hello Tiffanie. I thought I’d share a personal observation that seemed to have been a popular one. I hope you don’t mind if I share it again:

    Every fat cell acquired through life is accompanied with either a good or bad memory. No wonder losing weight is such an emotional journey!

    Howdy Tiffanie! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!

    It's super Saturday, Tiffie! If you've ever been late for work. Late for a date. Felt too old to change. Missed the boat/train. Fell off the wagon. Took a sabbatical. Derailed while on vacation. Bad stuff happened in life. It’s okay to be late. All LATE stands for is:


    Then get back on track. There’s years worth of empty days ahead to fill will good positive choices!
