I was introduced to this community by a MySpace friend, (thanks Yesi1211), back in 2/2008. I am definitely overweight, but don't yet feel committed(recently recommitted 2/2009). I have tried exercising in the past and I get all excited for the 1st few weeks and then slowly get off track. So I am going to pace myself and check out this page. I chose a profile pic that I hate. It makes my head look huge and my neck invisible. I want this pic to motivate me, to lose the lbs.

I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony." - Thomas Merton (1915-1968)

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26 (NIV)

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. ~ Bruce Lee
