Begins With a Single Step

I read a quote today, “a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” everything begins with a single step, babies must take that single step to learn to walk, if they won’t take that step because of fear or some other reason, they will not learn to walk until they concur …

Mother’s Day and Memories

Got together with family yesterday for Mother’s Day. Had lots of fun with my mom, sister and her family, my daughter and grand-daughter and two of my great-grandchildren and my brother and sister-in-law.

There Is Light At The End of The Tunnel

Today I was reminded about staying alert to what I say about myself and others. I have been my own worst judge, and I have also been very critical of myself. But I have noticed that I am not speaking negative words over myself nearly as much, sometimes it slips out but I am getting …

Nothing Of Value Comes Easily

Each individual gave a short story on how they lost there weight. It was unanimous with all of them that tracking your food was vital to loosing that much weight and, being …

Accountability Partner

My thoughts today were up and down. I could probably might blame it on the weather but I think I wasn’t feel to well. I have been thinking of this insulin resistance program to start. I did a lot of research on it and I think I can tweak it and it will work for …
