forgiving myself

Monday, January 28, 2013      7 comments

There's a lot of things I could choose to forgive myself for, but one that has been on my mind this week is that I wasn't with my mother when she died. My mother's birthday would have been January 20th, so I've been thinking about her a lot... Read more

Life changing goals

Saturday, January 26, 2013      4 comments

I have to break this into two concurrent life changing goals -- because if I don't do both, I'll never accomplish either (sounds like the Harry Potter line . . ."neither can live while the other survives..." But I digress). 1. GET TO MAIN... Read more

Friday, February 24, 2012      4 comments

It often happens that we "lose motivation" when we are trying to get healthy & lose weight. This has happened to me quite a bit in the past, and it can be very painful. You look back and see that you had a fire in your belly to be healthy & cha... Read more

My journey

I've had a "two steps forward, one step back" journey, when it comes to my body. I've spent most of my life overweight -- overweight as a child & taunted about it. Overweight as a teenager, with some weight loss during that time while I white-... Read more

Thoughts on the Cleanse!

Monday, December 05, 2011      1 comments
