“Set Yourself Free” by Ralph Marston---"There is no outside force holding you back. You are holding you back and you are blaming it on someone or something else. The way you are able to continue holding yourself back is by maintaining the illusion that you're a victim. Once you realize that illusion, you will naturally and easily move forward. In fact, it is easier to fulfill your best possibilities than it is to avoid them. So let go of the blame and watch the limitations drop away. Certainly there will always be challenges that hold you back. For each challenge provides you with a pathway through which you can move toward fulfillment. It is your very nature to accomplish. Lovingly accept your destiny, and allow that accomplishment to be manifest through you. Set yourself free to follow your purpose. Set yourself free to truly live." Visit Mr. Marston at

I found that while surfing and it really spoke to me. Let go of the blame.
Often I feel I'm the scapegoat, the whipping boy. This negativity has to stop since I tend to console myself with food.

This is MY journey. I decide what to pack and carry on my back. I want to travel the pathway to fulfillment.

Today I walked 40 minutes with Tikki. Over 4,000 steps according to the pedometer. I was going to go out again this evening but fell into another funk so I didn't go.

Tomorrow is weigh in day and a new start. I signed up for an online program to track exercise and food intake. I need to decide what my caloric bank amount will be. I don't have work scheduled for tomorrow, I'm going to go swimming at least 30 minutes.

- exercise a minimum of 60 minutes
- drink a minimum of 1 gallon of water
-take my meds

    I'm proud of ya, and am in for swimming tomorrow. Loves!
