Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible.

This quote so exemplifies my journey. This is more than just shedding unwanted pounds. For me this is the journey of life. Finally I am on the right path on all levels of my life. Seeing the road to my personal destiny is amazing.

I posted the above paragraphs over a year ago and they still hold true. I have had a lot of ups and downs over the past year and a half. Moving from Utah to Wyoming, and now back home to Texas. Every day is a new day full of new experiences. I now look forward to each day. Having shed 80 lbs as of today I can clearly see the way to my goal.

It is amazing how much damage Stress can do to our bodies. When we become stressed our bodies seem to hear the word desserts instead of stressed. Since desserts is simply stressed spelled backwards. Either are just as dangerous to us and usually end up on our hips.

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ~ Helen Keller

The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure that you seek. ~ Joseph Campbell
