Permission to climb aboard!

Postby gypsydancer830 » May 18th, 2006, 11:53 am

Hey there!

My name is Dorothyann and I started on MF this past Monday 5/15/06. So far everything is going well. I have lost 5 lbs to date, and am feeling pretty good. I'm 48 - mother of 2 older (beautiful) daughters - one is 18 and the other is 21. I am a Business Specialist at a State University and have pretty much been battling 20+ pounds for the past 10 or so years. I'm a thinkin I probably lost and gained a person with this albatross 20 lbs.

Starting on Monday, my weight was at it's highest, and it is just time to do something about it instead of whining and wishing myself thinner and healthier! So the plan is to stick to the plan one day at a time. Easier for me to keep it in the day. That does NOT however, stop me from visualizing myself in a month from now, 2 months and so on. Looking forward to getting to know you all as we trudge this journey together.

Keep the faith,

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
