Dear Food,

Dear Food, I want to take just a few moments to speak to you about our relationship. Bubba, it’s gotta change. I love you – you know I do. I have thought about you, obsessed about you, prayed about you and entertained you my whole life. I am tired of this now and it’s got […]

Living Beyond Survival Mode

Journaling my way out of the weight, Day 2. What do I want out of my life? How do I make sure I get it? These are the suggested questions for today. They are questions I have been asking myself for more years than I can remember. Of course the answers change as soon as […]

Healing the Weight Loss

I didn’t have a problem losing weight before I turned 40, in fact, I could put it on or take it off with relative ease. I chose to be overweight for most of my life as a protection against unwanted advances and it worked well. Now however, it is something that I no longer need […]

Jumping Off the Deep End

Today’s the day. Today we start the diet. It’s a very strict diet – definitely not one for sissy’s. If it’s not lean meat or a low carb (usually green) vegetable, then we probably can’t eat it. I know the diet works because I’ve done it before. I have faith in this diet and trust […]

Here We Go Again…

I’ve had it! I’ve, once again, reached that point where, “I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!” I’m frustrated with myself for gaining back the weight I released about five years ago. Lizabeth shared her feelings in an earlier post and I wanted to share mine before we start this next chapter in our health journey. My […]

Mad. Just Mad.

I am mad. Just raging, throwing shit against a wall, stomping my feet, cuss someone out, crash the car, run over a hated appliance, smash something, spitting, mad. I am fighting with my weight once again and I hate it. I hate the process. I hate the reasons. I hate that it takes time and […]

TEN I AM STATEMENTS FOR POSITIVE CHANGE

I am ready. I am ready for change. I welcome the pain of change over the pain of staying the same. I am willing. I am willing to change my mind. I am open to allowing the natural changes in my body once my mindset is different. I am willing to accept where I am […]

Losing Weight? No. I’m Releasing It

Ok.  Newest challenge:  Getting my fat *@* up and get healthy.  Yesterday I was full of get up and gusto.  Today, not so much.  I have ‘willingly’ [insert grumble and loud protest here] restricted myself to just under 1400 calories/day. This morning my  “hey, where’s my pizza?” stomach and I are in a very loud […]

The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity Day 20 Chapter 7 Making Forgiveness a Daily Practice

We discuss forgiveness again today. We talk about the different techniques that Edwene mentions in her book and the techniques that have worked for us. What techniques do you use to help you forgive?
