I am different now.

I had a great conversation with my BFF the other night.  I poured out my heart to her and I always come from those conversations with a greater understanding of who I am and what I want from my life.  I realized yet again that I am a different person now. I have to put my health first!  I am important!  It is not selfish to take care of myself!!! I need exercise and I need to treat my body right.  Change is a good thing.  There is nothing more constant in life than change!

I have a goal that I set for myself and my wonderful friends and husband are giving me great encouragement to reach my goal.  Even when I doubt myself, they tell me I can! I want to be at least where I was last year on my birthday, 195 pounds.  The icing on the cake would be to reach 190 pounds.

So here are some great motivational quotes for the day:

I am a changed woman.  It takes hard work everyday not to go back to the OLD me but I will keep working hard to be who I know I was meant to be!

  1. Thanks for this post! The quote that struck me is the one about eating. I eat a little less, but I still splurge on chocolate all the time. Probably cancelling out any good I'm doing. Thanks for the motivation, and the inspiration. I pray you reach your goal! I'm sure you will. :)

    1. I have been doing the same thing. I only have 41 days to reach my goal so I am determined not to splurge. I know I can do it but I have at least 10 pounds to lose.

    2. I think youve done great! My best weight loss food is oatmeal. I eat it every morning. Yoplait light yogurt with granola is always good when i need a sweet treat.
