New Things On The Way

First of all, I would like you all to meet Melanie. She is a cyber friend of mine that I am so glad has come into my life.

She is such an inspiration.

If you would like to read more about her and her successes, go here. She has some great advice.

I hope you don't mind that I share your story and picture on my blog Melanie, but I just can't help myself. You are such a gorgeous person, and everyone should see this.

If you notice, Melanie does not look like the same person. She has transformed into a beautiful successful woman.

I have followed Melanie from almost her beginning point, and watching her change has really put a spark in my attitude.

There are going to be some changes made to my blog postings (just wanted you to know). I am going to be posting what I am eating to get these 50 extra pounds off my body.
Oh, I am still going to bake and have goodies for you, but as far as me eating them, I AM NOT!
I will give them away, or let my family enjoy.

My first move on this new change is going to be purchasing a recumbent bike. Since I am a full time student, the bike will allow me exercise while I read. I am also going to encourage walking instead of driving.

My biggest challenge is going to be changing my eating. With Melanie at my finger (cyber) tips I know I can get through this.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Melanie....


  1. Thank You Angie!! If I can inspire just ONE person to make positive changes, then my struggle has been worth it!!! I really appreciate all of the support you and everyone has shown me. When i'm not having such a good day...I can always go to my profile and see such positive words that help me keep pushing forward!!!!
