Scale Isn't Moving, But My Body Is
I'm being such a good girl (smiling), but the scale refuses to acknowledge it. But I can see several good changes in my body, including comments from others, and it's encouraging. So, who cares about the scale? Doing great without sugar, less... Read more
September Has Been About Rewiring My Brain

Bayer-Monsanto Merger Nightmare

Lysine and Apple Cider Vinegar - Two "Miracle" Remedies

I Dreamt of My Deceased Cat Last Night

Visualizing Whenever I'm Hungry
I remind my body, whenever I get hungry, that there's a little reservoir of fat it needs to use first before I'm going to eat. I visualize it chomping away on that yucky fat (see my SP pics for a reminder of what it looks like). Yummy! (smilin... Read more
Parched Skin, Mini Facial Massager, Heat Wave
