Hi there! My name is Lisa. I re-read my old introduction and it sounded fake. I was trying very hard to prove to myself that I was happy and I honestly was not. It has taken me the 1 1/2 years (with the help of the YMCA & my therapist) to really be happy and get happier with myself . My new motto is "Be the change", it is a shortened Ghandi quote. If I am bored, unhappy, sad, etc......I am the only person that can change it. One morning in Sept 2011, I WOKE UP.....I was just tired of complaining about being sad, depressed, angry, heavy, insert next complaint here and so on. I was literally sick of hearing myself. I signed up for the YMCA weight loss program. I am more active than ever, my self esteem and self confidence have increased 100%, and I actually can stand to look at myself in the mirror. I am down about 50 lbs, I am at 216.5. I have donated all my size 18, 20 and 2X clothes. I am proud of myself, that is the first time in my life that I have said that and could honestly mean it.

    Lisa, have you had your hugs today? Consider yourself hugged! Thank you for enriching my life and being a part of my journey. Sending lots of hugs from me to you! Have a blessed weekend!

    "Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it's inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It's non-taxable, non-polluting, and is, of course, fully refundable." ~Author Unknown

    emoticon H = Honored to have a special friend who inspires me on a daily basis!
    emoticon U = Unity from your caring support and heartfelt encouragement!
    emoticon G = Gratitude for the inner strength, perseverance and triumphs in all that you do!
    emoticon S = Sparktacular role model that creates extraordinary results!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog Lisa! I always appreciate your support! It is so important that we get away from our what ifs and I can'ts. We don't need to live like that because we can and we don't need to ask what if all the time. Lets make it happen!

    You've been a good friend all the way through this so I say that I am the lucky one for having such a good friend! Thank s :)
