Lost my MOJO...have you seen it?

Profile Information

My Story: My Triumphs // My Goals // My Dreams // My Why
A little about me. I am 41 years old and have a 21 and a 22 year old daughter. In June of 2005 I was diagnosed with a rare medical condition that causes my body to produce too much spinal fluid. This causes great pressure to my head and I have lost the eye sight in my left eye. This condition makes it very difficult to excercise as it increases the pain. Just over a year ago I looked into the mirror and I did not recongnize the woman there..she was a 204 pound woman with dead eyes and a hollow soul. I talked with one of my doctors and he told me that my weight was causing high blood pressure and high cholestrol. I decided that no matter how much pain was involved I needed to get into shape. I took the challenged and pushed myself and tiped the scale at 124 pounds in August 2009 for that photo shoot with John Morrison. I thought that was enough but I have now a new dream/goal and that is to get to the Fame Stage October 24, 2009 in Vancouver BC. I am on a pain medication that I have to take every 4 hours to be able to live my life today but I know I won't lose my life to being over weight ever!! My medical condition is NOT life threatening just painful. Thanks for reading my story!!!

In becoming the ME i desire to be, I Dare myself to master my empowerment in the following ways AND here is why:
Low Carb lifestyle for me

I am trying to keep only positive thoughts and NO negative thoughts..I want to be full of life not self pity and nor do I want to involve myself in anyone else's self pity..I am good at getting in there let me tell ya!! LOL
I have already been stepping up to my own plate / daring myself to stretch my comfort zone and here are some of my results and proud moments.
Losing 80 pounds and doing my first photo shoot..no fame to clain except for myself..which is very important!! I want to keep it going..I want the next step..I want to look in the mirror and say you overcame the odds again!!!
My Message to You (and all those who relate to ME and my Story)
Referred by:
Web Presence / Awards / Recognition / Self-Plugs:
Everyone has the opportunity to be healthy. You have to want it and you have to actually get up off the couch and do something about it. I love the inspiring stories on body proud and the great encouragement you get from most people. Its a great website!!!
/ / / / / / / / / /
Fame October 2009 for sure!!! I want it so bad I can taste it!!!! I don't expect to win..I just want to get on that stage at 41 years old overcoming a disability to say I DID it and you can too!! People do not understand my pain as its not visable and I am very outgoing and try to do too much. I am a people pleaser maybe too much so Ive been told but thats ok. I love to put a smile on someone's face just because. I love to do random acts of kindness. I have been known to get my feelings hurt from getting too involved so I have to learn my own personal healthy boundaries!!

Yes i am Kathleen. Takes a bit getting used to. Not sure yet how to make it work yet. I suppose most of us will get encouragement as we hear each others story.

I do all the housework myself, because I like being thrifty. I know several people who hire a contractor to do the work on their yard.

I am glad you are doing well and your grand daughter has recovered from her illness. I am in good health. Yesterday I had a tough day. I had to patch a roof leak on my house and I spent nearly two hours raking leaves. I also had to cut down some tree branches that were touching my roof.
