Control the Controllables!! That’s what my Mom used to always say to me when things felt like they were out of my control. Let’s face it—some things in life ARE out of our control. But instead of worrying about those things, we have the option to instead focus on ‘controlling the controllables’. This has been [...]

Is it Doughnut or Donut?  Well whatever it is…I won’t be participating in it.  Let me start off by saying that I think honoring the Salvation Army is a fantastic idea.  That is where all this started in the first place after all.  The day became an official way to honor the “Donut Lassies” who [...]

Even though I often ‘preach’ sugar addiction as being the major issue, I have to admit it’s not the only one.  For me it is the MAIN one.  But I would be lying to myself if I didn’t acknowledge that there are emotional and psychological issues that play a part as well.   While I [...]

April 30, 2015
thoughts-e1317945585137

  I lived several decades of my life believing that I could never control my hunger.  That I would literally DIE hungry because it was THAT impossible for me to ever satisfy my voracious appetite.  The appetite that owned me.  That walked me around like a dog on a leash.  The appetite that never shut [...]
