Happy Anniversary

It is hard for me to believe, but this week marks the three-year anniversary of starting my weight loss journey.  In some ways it feels like it has only been a few months and in other ways it seems like a lifetime ago.  When I look at all that has happened in my life in […]

Just A Little Further To Go

Do you ever feel like your weight loss journey is an exercise in patience?  I am the first one to admit that patience is not one of my virtues and I think that God gives me plenty of opportunities to improve on this.  Of course after over two and a half years, I know better […]

Are You Wishing or Planning?

I know it might seem like a silly question, but it really is a valid one.  Are you wishing to lose weight this month, or are you planning to lose weight this month?  It is incredible how much power our mind and our thoughts have over us and until you realize the magnitude of that […]

I had […]

Shout if From the Rooftops

Let’s face it; telling other people about our weight loss plans is scary.  What if they laugh, what if they tell us we can’t do it, or worse yet, what if they hold us accountable?  I think the thought of being held accountable is the scariest of all of those possibilities.  However, I have learned […]
