Never Give Up Hope

Sunday, October 05, 2008

Life doesnít always give us
the joy we want.
We donít always get our hopes
and dreams,
and we donít always get
our own way.
But donít give up hope,
because you can make a difference
one situation and one person
at a time.

Look for the beauty around you Ė
in nature, in others, in yourself Ė
and believe in the love
of friends, family, and humankind.

You can find love in a smile
or a helping hand,
in a thoughtful gesture
or a kind word.
It is still around, if you
just look for it.

Give love,
for in giving it
you will find the power in life
along with the joy, happiness,
patience, and understanding.

Believe in the goodness of others
and remember that anger
and depression
can be countered by love and hope.

Even when you feel as though
there isnít a lot you can do
to change unhappiness or problems,
you can always do a little Ė
and a little at a time
eventually makes a big difference.

Today I learned I can make a difference and if I don't give up on myself others will not give up as well.


What am I afraid of???

Wednesday, October 01, 2008


I am afraid I will never take the weight off, that I will never taste the way thin feels!!! I get going but never get over that hump to allow myself the sweet success. I always sabbotage myself!! The fear of giving up the things I love the things that are in my comfort zone. Comfort foods like potatoes, french fries, hamburgers, pasta, pizza, POP and HOT DOGS!!

I am trying to write these these fears down, so they are visable to me!! So I can tackle them one by one instead of all at one time.

Rewarding myself for tackling each fear.

So to tackle them I need to find the route of the problem. AM dirve through stops, get up half and hour earlier and make yourself your breakfast sandwich. Leave so that you don't have time to stop because you will be late to work. Know that I can have my "comfort foods" in moderation and if I adhere to portion sizes. Allow myself a pop one a day vs 8 a day.

If i can get past the drive throughs in the am for one week then i will reward myself with some music cd or pedicure.

I can fight my fears one day a time, I will journal my thoughts and push myself harder. FAILURE IS NEVER AN OPTION!!!


If you dream it and believe it you will achieve it!!!

    It is just water retention. If it is still there, go your nutrition page through and see if there is anything you can find a healthier substitute for. Every little thing helps.. Keep strong and don't let it get the better of you..
