THIS IS IT!!!!!!!!!!! I AM DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I have finally hit the wall and realized I am killing myself with food. I am straining my heart, I am straining my wallet, and I am straining my family. All in the name of food. It is time for me to go on a journey and discover why I eat like I do..........I KNOW how it started but, today I am going to write the ending. I am putting my food tracker online so that anyone who has the time can check in and see what I'm doing and also my exercise............I need to start living and stop existing..............THE TIME HAS COME!!!!!!

Hi, I'm Marilyn from Winston Salem, NC.

I am married and have one son (step) that lives with us. I love working on the computer (okay okay it's playing on the computer) and hanging out with my new pup Ana. I am really not sure where all this weight came from - I mean I know it came from eating but it's like Emeril says BAM it was there. Hmmmmmmm maybe too many cooking shows???

I want to be the kind of woman that when my feet hit the floor each morining the devil says
"Oh crap, she's up!!!"

I am an emotional eater for sure and it seems like when I don't want to do the next thing I need to do I go "shopping" in the pantry..........and then I have the the cycle of being too fat to exercise cause everything hurts so then I feel sorry for me and I eat then I can't exercise cause everything hurts and ---you get the picture.

Each day that I make good choices and bad choices I try to remember that each calorie, each dollar and every act I involve myself in leads me either closer or further away from owning and riding a horse.~*~


Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut her up with cookies.

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.

I try to take one day at a time -- but sometimes several days attack me at once.

If you can't be a good example -- then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.


I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on.

    Red is for the blood he gave.
    Green is for the grass he made.
    Yellow is for the sun so bright.
    Orange is for the edge of night.
    Black is for the sins we made.
    White is for the grace he gave.
    Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
    Pink is for our new tomorrow.
    A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
    is a prayer, a promise, a loved one‟s treat.
    May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your heart and bless your life!

    I asked God for a rose and he gave me a garden.
    I asked God for a drop of water and he gave me a lake.
    I asked God for an angel and he gave me you
    Happy Valentine's Day.
