Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

A New Favourite Quote.

As some of you know I have joined LA Weightloss. It's a weightloss centre that opened not far from my house. I go in 3 times a week and meet with a variety of counsellors. They are teaching me to choose healthy foods in the right quantaties. It has not been easy, but I am proud to say that I have lost 24.6 pounds. I am almost halfway to my goal.

I keep a photocopy of my before picture on the fridge, as well as this quote:

"It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not."

You can only make this life change if you are ready to make a change. I want to be healthy and I want to be a good example for my kids. They are my inspiration!

What are you working hard to achieve? What inspires you to keep striving towards your goal?

Happy Anniversary. Those are some lovely words your husband blogged. I found my children to be very inspirational when I was on my weight loss plan.

Highfive to you on losing the weight.
One of my favorite quotes is " nothing taste as good as skinny feels"
I try to remember that.

Hope you had a great anniversary, Morah Mommy! Carmi sent me over to tell you that. Good luck with your weight loss; I need to do that too.

Here via your hubby's link. That quote is so true. We can all do it, we just have to decide to do it...
Congrats on the anniversary and the loss!

Oh congratulations on the loss! I jumped on the WW bandwagon a year ago and have lots of success with it - I'm always glad to hear what's working for others.

In the end, it's all about OUR determination more so than the actual program we choose to enlist in. :)

(And Happy Anniversary!)
