"You can become every courageous inch of yourself, your own heroine, but you have to act. No one can do this for you. It's up to you." (Geneen Roth)

One day at a time, making my health and happiness a priority. Never forgetting that I am always worth my best effort, and that I have the power to amaze myself!
My journey has been through many ups and downs. I lost 86 lbs in 2006, only to gain it all back (plus 14 "bonus pounds") a year later. Then in 2012, I lost 72 pounds. Again, I gained it back. I've been struggling ever since then to get back on track. But I firmly believe that struggling is not always a bad thing....it means I'm still trying! I will never give up on myself.

'So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.'
-1 Corinthians 10:31

"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
(Geneen Roth)

"An undivided heart. That's what my whole journey in conquering my cravings was about. When it comes to my body, I can't live with divided loyalties. I can either be loyal to honoring the Lord with my body or loyal to my cravings, desires, and many excuses for not exercising. The apostle Paul taught the Corinthians about this two thousand years ago when he wrote: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."
(1 Corinthians 6:19).

    This tip is from Cleveland Clinic Chief Wellness Officer Mike Roizen, MD, from his new book, "This Is Your Do-Over". Here's a sneak peek at his essential do-over deeds.

    We all have disagreements sometimes. Life isn't about holding hands and singing happy tunes to hide our troubles. However, you need to decide if you want to be a "but" or an "and" kind of person. The "but" people don't want solutions. They want to settle. They want to wallow in their misery.

    The "and" people find solutions to problems. They inspire others to do their best. They contribute to the growth of people and ideas - and, ultimately, to the health of us all. Even if you are an avowed lifelong naysayer, you still have the opportunity to discover your inner enthusiast. Once you find your purpose and passion, your optimism will increase and your do-over becomes stronger and stronger. In the end, optimism is really just about cultivating happiness in your everyday moments.
