Counting Mailboxes

May 29, 2017

I often forget that the most important benefit of exercise for me is the feeling of accomplishment it brings.  That feeling of accomplishment is motivating.  It actually makes me feel mentally stronger which automatically gives me more inner strength to avoid sugar and other things I don’t need to eat.  When you think about exercise, […]

Working From Home (VIPKID)

May 22, 2017

    I have to force myself not to eat brownies. I have to force myself to exercise. I do NOT have to force myself, however, to teach.  I truly love it. I have to force myself to exercise. (I just decided to say that one again because lately IT’S SO TRUE!) I began teaching […]

Positive Mindset and Reframing our Thoughts

May 15, 2017

All I’ve done for quite awhile is focus on where I’ve failed.  All the things I’ve done wrong.  It’s been way too long since I’ve felt that I accomplished any of the goals I set for myself in the area of health.   I think we all know in extensive detail where I’ve screwed up […]

Switching Seats on the Titanic

April 24, 2017

I am totally incapable of overcoming food addiction in my own strength.  Try as I might, my efforts to escape this nightmare seem pointless in the end.  I sit in my prison cell plotting my escape.  Devising plans that ‘maybe this time’ will work.   Night falls and I prepare my prison break!  Like Andy from […]

Quilt of Comments–You are all the authors!

March 7, 2017

I know my last post was a rough one.  Phew! Glad we made it through THAT week! Felt like the time I was at Daytona beach and a big wave took me out.  All I could feel was the confusion of being thrown upside down and the sting of saltwater up my nose. Thanks for dragging […]

Upside Down and In Between

February 25, 2017

I’ve been holding off 300 like a tidal wave that’s coming.  Every week I get closer.  And there’s almost no point anymore.  I have tried so hard to stop this from happening.  And I’m so tired of the people who simply tell me to stop eating. “Food isn’t your best friend.” “Just don’t eat sugar […]

Food Is My Person

February 8, 2017

They say food is fuel.   That’s not the case for me. Food is my fuel in the way your boyfriend is  ‘transportation’.  Sure he drops you off at work…but does that make him a bus? No. He’s a person. A person you’re having a relationship with. I mean…sometimes he’s “transportation”.   But when you break […]

Sunday Reflections

January 29, 2017

  As I drink my morning coffee, I would like to give a big thanks to all of you who responded to my last post “Deconstructing Regain: Part One” I feel very good about this step in the right direction.  When I began my blog and weight loss journey in 2011, I would write almost […]

Deconstructing Regain: Part One

January 28, 2017

  But this isn’t a STUMBLE y’all.  This is like head first into the snake pit 800 feet down. I have gained and lost weight numerous times over the course of my life.  I’m not talking 10 or 20 pounds although I’ve done that too.  But I’m talking hundreds of pounds.  Literally hundreds.  Nothing quite […]

Borrowed Time

January 21, 2017

I’ve had a lot of crazy stuff happen to me before.  But being WRONGLY diagnosed with cancer  tops the list! This was very shocking to me.  I am sure many people out there are diagnosed with cancer having had no symptoms.  Cancer is indeed a scary disease due to the fact that you may think you […]
