Just as a Reminder to Myself...

"If hunger is not the problem,
then eating is not the solution."

I'm a Winner! : )

I received an email from BlogHer (site dedicated to women bloggers that is very cool!) that I'd won the BlogHer / Dr. Oz Sweepstakes they've been holding!  Yeah for me! : )  I'm going to be receiving a set of autographed copies of Dr. Oz books and a Heart Rate Monitor.  I'm so psyched as I've looked in the stores at BOTH and haven't had the disposal cash for the splurges!

Can I tell you that the Law of Attraction really DOES work.  I often enter things and think to myself "I'm going to win (whatever)..." and then I end up winning!  It's pretty darn cool! : ) 

The sweepstakes began when Dr. Oz launched his new show in September and I entered at that time, answering the question of what motivates me to be healthy now.  My September 23rd answer is below:

This Chapter is Entitiled: Me!

I'm 51 years old and have raised my son and put him through college on my own. I recently broke off my engagement because I was not happy and fulfilled in the relationship. So, I'm starting over... a new chapter in my life begins now. I have a goal of losing 100 lbs. and have already lost 40 pounds by starting to exercise and finally eating the right way. I'm trying so hard to shape my life into what I can see it being in my dreams. I'm working hard, staying positive, and trying to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can so I don't waste another year, another month, another day, another hour! I need all the help and support I can get so I can give to others and reclaim the fit, happy person that I know is waiting to break free! : )
