Picture: A day at the beach.

In no particular order the "Top 12 Things" that have helped me avoid gaining weight during stressful events.
1) Support from friends and family.
2) Logging on to Spark People daily.
3) Faith.
4) Eating a hearty salad with protien
5) Freezing 1/4 cup of juice in bottom of water bottle then adding water over the frozen juice. Yumm....I drink more water that way.
6) Walking the dog every evening.
7) Visualizing cravings as little beasts and disciplining them by telling them "no" they may not have sugar. That way I do not feel deprived.
8) Decluttering house. It's uplifting and fights cravings.
9) Gardening
10) Enjoying the sunshine.
11) Hearty vegetable and bean soup in a rainbow of colors.
12) Eliminating most wheat products from diet.

    Risk - Anais Nin

    And then the day came,
    when the risk
    to remain tight
    in a bud
    was more painful
    than the risk
    it took
    to Blossom.

    Do Less - Unknown

    Wise words for when we are caught up in doing more...

    Do less thinking,
    And pay more attention to your heart
    Do less acquiring,
    And pay more attention to what you already have

    Do less complaining,
    And pay more attention to giving
    Do less controlling,
    And pay more attention to letting go

    Do less criticizing,
    And pay more attention to complimenting
    Do less arguing,
    And pay more attention to forgiveness

    Do less running around,
    And pay more attention to stillness
    Do less talking,
    And pay more attention to silence.
