“The most powerful thing you can give a person is HOPE!” I heard this at church today and it made me think of the reason I enjoy blogging. As I’ve said previously, I discovered Roni’s blog when I was at my heaviest weight and she gave me hope. She is a normal everyday person who has had success losing weight and is willing to share her ideas and experiences with those that are interested.

That is our goal here. We aren’t perfect, we make mistakes, we are emotional, we have successes and failures, we struggle, we try, etc…. and above all, we support each other. We want to live our best life. We want to enjoy our time here…. enjoy our family and friends. We want to challenge ourselves to do things that we didn’t think possible.

If you are just beginning your journey…. or you are somewhere in the middle… I would really encourage you to keep at it!  You are capable of success!  If you are consistently applying correct principles over time, you will succeed!!!  Changes are happening even if you can’t see them yet. You are developing habits and you will eventually see the physical manifestations. Stay positive!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
