Inspiration Comes at the Strangest Times

This week I accepted the challenge at Operation Fat Blaster to create a vision board. As part of this board I was asked to write an acrostic name poem. I was to use inspirational words that start with each letter in my name in hopes that I would start to believe them to be part of who I am.

I have been thinking about my poem on and off all week. To be honest, I was kind of dreading writing it as I don't think I am very creative when it comes to written prose. The rest of my vision board I have been excited about as I love doing crafty things.

As it turned out, the poem was easy. I guess I should be thankful I was awakened sooner than I wanted to be this morning because it was while I was in the bathroom that my poem suddenly just came to me. Oh, what all that healthy eating and water drinking does! At least last night I slept through the night. It was a different story the night before. I was up almost every hour doing the 'potty dance.' lol

So here is my poem:

Cherished & charitable
Happy, healthy
Respectfully recognized
Luscious lady

I'm a lifetime yo-yo dieter who has spent most of my time on the up swing. On a few rare occasions I have been down in the weight game and it is then that I feel FANTASTIC. Just a few months ago I was in middle of one of those rare periods when all was going well and the pounds were coming
off. Then something went awry, and I started gaining it all back again. So here
I am starting over. Follow me on my journey to health and fitness.
