Sometimes I wonder what I do to certain people that make them mad or even seem to be jealous of me. All I do is just live my life, and try to be happy. It just seems that there is always one individual that is for some reason or another, either upset with me or jealous of me. It's seems to be always about the same subject too. I feel that because I am bettering myself, this person seems to distance themselves from me. I can't say that I am sorry for bettering myself, but sometimes this person makes me feel guilty for being a better person. I really don't know how to approach this to this individual without make them angry. I guess only time will tell and all I can do is watch out for me and what makes myself and my family happy!

I am so excited to be down "50" pounds!! It has taken me since about the middle of August to reach this mark. I am still working on the next 73 pounds, but I know with persistence and the encouragement of my family and friends....I will most definately persavier!!! This has been an amazing journey and one that I am glad to finally be on! I feel that being overweight all of these years that I have lost alot of "good' years. I can't take back all the years of sitting on the couch and not playing with my kids the way that they deserved to have their mom interact and play with them. But ~ I can make up for all those years now. I am so excited to be that mom again! My kids "deserve" to have that mom back and I am soooo excited to be that mom for them! Also~I am excited to be the wife that I want to be and once was! I am more comfortable to give myself and not hold back anymore. I have learned through this journey, that I have held myself back for years in "every" aspect of my life. Well~NO MORE!! I am going to start enjoying my life and living like there is no tomorrow! I am thrilled to be the wife and mom that I once was!! Life is a beautiful journey and I will not take advantage of it anymore! God has blessed me!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
LOVE: We think about it, Sing about it, Dream about it and lose sleep worrying about it. When we don't know we have it, we search for it. When we discover it, we don't know what to do with it. When we have it, we fear losing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we don't know which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and IMPOSSIBLE to live without.
"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. We have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from our branches we find that we are one tree and not two."
