As I am closing out the 2011 year and heading for the new 2012 year I am excited and looking forward to living life to the fullest. I love my life!

I will be the turtle with slow determination and focus to win this race to health.

I am re-dedicating myself to do whatever it takes to turn this around. I know my health is at stake and I have made mistakes along the way. But I am willing to change so I can live a long life to continue loving my man, see my son married, watch my grandchildren grow, and be there to continue loving them all.

This New Year 2011 I am going to start out with a glass of ODAT (One Day At a Time) thinking. I refuse to be the rabbit in this race, who is on a winning streak and then "checks out" and loses the race. This year I am going to be the turtle the one that plods along, never gives up, and learns along the way. I WIN this race of being healthy. ODAT!!

Found a nutritionist & trainer to assist me in this ongoing effort to find health.

Started my year out with a shot of wheat-grass! No alcohol, its just empty calories and not for my body anymore. I have started to eat RAW foods. Its a clean way of living and necessary for me to clean out those toxins in my body.


01/03/09 -
I am back. Been gone over a year. I will try again to get back on track and get healthy.

I am very excited to find the SP community! What an amazing opportunity to find friends who struggle the same issues I have.

    Just saw all your updated photos, and I'm stunned lol. You look incredible!! You're down 90 lbs plus and ALMOST TO 100!! Do you realize how many people struggle to be at that point or pay money to get there? You are amazing. I'm so glad you started to work on your inside, to get to your outside. I love you!
