There is inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything that she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn't thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences, who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and move on. ~www.operationbeautiful.com~

Hello I'm a stress eater and a bit lazy at times. I'm 29, married, and have one young son. I've paid my dues learning the fitness and healthy living ropes and have went up and down the yo yo weight scale a couple times. Trying to live my life for today and trying to add years to my future in the process.

Everytime I've wanted to lose weight is was just that "wanting to lose weight". I wanted to look pretty in clothes and live longer for my family. This time I consider myself an athlete. I want to increase my endurance and my strength to make me better at my hobby. All that other stuff will work itself out in the process. Let's do this!


Raise the Sword

I am a powerful Warrior.
I can weather any storm.
I am fierce; I am fabulous; I am unstoppable.
My tenacity comes in many forms.

I here and now commit to myself,
To embrace sheer courage and strength,
And vow to pursue well being and health,
And to reach new heights and great lengths.

I shall pick myself up with determination and grace,
Each and every time that I fall,
I will give of myself and lift up my friends,
And will extend a helping hand to all.

I will start each new day,
With inspiration in my heart, as I look to the horizon-nestled treasure,
For am I am a Warrior; I am a spark;
Yes, I am powerful beyond measure.
