And here we go.....AGAIN....I know what it takes to lose weight, I can lose weight, and have lost weight, several times. I just can''t seem to keep the weight I have lost off. This is still a lesson I must learn. I break free from within the safe confines of my cocoon, spread my beautiful new wings and fly for a bit; but I always end up back in the safety of my cocoon, food.

I am a perfectionist, a stress-eater, and I have a demanding job. Working 11- 12 hours a day at a desk is one of my demises. My stress- level is another.

I have been here before and I’m seeking the motivation and determinations to break free from my cocoon once and for all.

Member Since: 11/19/2006

My Goals:
Drink more water.
Eat healthier.
Get up and move.
Work less, enjoy life more.

My Program:
Since I am a stress eater, I don't want to add more stress to my life, so I will keep it simple. Take this one day at a time.

Personal Information:
54 year old from Ohio, married, with two sons, two grand children, and an angel in Heaven.

Compliance Officer for a community bank, where I have worked for more than 35 years.

I love the beauty of nature, a great story, good conversation, music, dancing, and creating things.

Other Information:
" The path of the butterfly and the path of the human are similar.

Both require building strength from the inside out while living inside walls of protection. And both agreed to melt down in order to be fully restored. Freedom awaits both the moment they shatter what has held them captive.

The butterfly instinctively knows what is required for transformation.

The human being has forgotten. That is about to change."

-Maureen Moss

    Thanks so much for your comment! I was so shocked to see that I had four comments so quickly after posting - I don't have many friends here, so I didn't think anyone would be reading my stuff. :)

    I appreciate you - thanks for the encouragement and the kind words!

    Feel free to add me as a friend if you'd like.
