I have 50+ to lose and plan to do it in 2020. I have been working with an extended family member who has lost A LOT of weight and she is very supportive and encouraging. 2020 is my year!

I am in maintenance, but still . . . I am on my guard. Daily tracking, portion control, exercise. Have to be faithful to those things, and that's my intent in 2020.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

I'm curious. How many of us Plus Sized team members plan on getting out of the higher double-digit sizes in 2020?

At 58, I am still a size 18 but right now my feeling is that if I get down to a 12/14 I'd be quite comfortable at that size going into my senior years.

Better yet if we're talking actual weight loss how many team members have 50 plus pounds they should not be carrying because it's affecting their health, Raise your hand.

You do realize that this is doable. That no matter what, we can lose the excess weight. No matter what wall we hit along the way. We built those walls now we break them down brick by brick.

Too many of us live needlessly in defeat, immobilized by our own mistakes repeatedly walking into the same walls that block the road to success.

We become kings and queens of stubborn resistance. We get into ruts that take us down paths that lead to nothing but discouragement and frustration, hitting the same wall time after time, year after year. Yet we will do everything but try something different, make the necessary changes. WHY?

It's time to take action, different actions that will get us those results we have been striving for, fighting for. No more gaining and then losing ground. No more going backward. Only forward! It's putting on our big girl panties and putting one foot in front of the other.

No more trying to do it on our own. No more lurking behind the curtain of invisibility. No one left behind.

Raise your hand and tell me you're in!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.
