"He who knows he has enough is rich." Lao Tzu





Requesting prayer for my mom who was admitted to hospital yesterday with problems breathing. She lives in a nursing home, has heart condition, apparently her lungs have fluid on them. She was there just over a month ago for the same reason.

"If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies."



Did anyone watch Oprah show yest with Jennifer Hudson. I've seen her advertising for Weight Watchers and when I knew she was going to be on Oprah I wanted to watch the show. She has done a good job on reaching her goal and she looks fabulous.

She also inspired her family and friends to join her at WW's to lose weight. I'm not advocating WW's, but just love to see when someone or something motivates others to get healthy.

What inspires you to get healthy?

    Missed this part of the show because when I went to it they had the View Ladies on so I changed it.

I love to read and see success stories.
Lots of people make a commitment and they stick to it.
WW is a good program, like any other you have to stick with it to make it work.

I think she looks great, she has done a great job.

We need to find what works for us and stick to it.

    I too like to hear about others successes but moreso when you see someone who has maintained..
not to put down WW but feel it does not promote a healthy lifestyle ... so does this mean JH will always have to count points and eat the WW way--to me it does...I would rather do what I am doing ...
eating healthy in moderation
along with good heart pumping exercise...

lol oops sorry I didn't mean to drone on...

guess if it works for you and you can do it the rest of your life all the power to you..

she does look good!

    Definitely family. The thought of being 34 years old but feeling far past my age when it comes to physical health scares me. Good for Jennifer. She's truly an inspiration!

"Life is short, Be yourself, Forgive quickly, Love totally, Laugh uncontrollably and never forget something that made you smile."





On one of my teams today's challenge is to drink 8 glasses of water and 5 fruits and veggies. This is an easy challenge for me as it's something I always do. So everyone drink up and get those delicious fruits and veggies into you !

    Happy Hump Day, indeed.

Not sure I quite go with this one, though...what if the person who won't "give up" is wrong to begin with, and won't listen to any reason? (like an anorectic, or someone engaged in other self-destructive behavior?) Sometimes intransiget stubbornness is NOT a virtue.

Sorry, I'm just geared toward looking under stones to see what lies there.
