A Prayer To Give Aid

May I become at all times, both now and forever

A protector for those without protection

A guide for those who have lost their way

A ship for those with oceans to cross

A bridge for those with rivers to cross

A sanctuary for those in danger

A lamp for those without light

A place of refuge for those who lack shelter

And a servant to all in need

Fitness Ideas That Worked

Before I ask everyone a question, let me give you an update on our little internal "Better Life Challenge".  90 days ago, a number of the Better Life staff took up a challenge to get in shape by May 1st with the winner getting a dinner for two at a 5 star restaurant.  Well, the winner... with a total weight loss of 32 pounds... was Bill Schrupp from our IT department.  Bill drank lots of water, focused a bit more on protein (but didn't go Atkins or South Beach), ate 6 smaller meals a day and walked at least 2 miles a day.  Before and after pictures to come.

Now, for my question for all of you...

"What things have worked for you, over the long term, in losing weight and keeping it off?"

Please share your thoughts with the rest of us.
