  • I Gotta Quit.

    7/28/2015 4:39:32 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Opening my big mouth, that is. I just made an inflammatory statement on a political story. It was a severe criticism of a major candidate. I wondered after I sent it out if it would land me facing some wealthy attorneys. I think I've just gotta learn to bite my tongue a little. From someone whose ... Read more

  • After my blog on the foods to avoid...

    7/23/2015 9:21:04 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    My spark page was paid a visit by the American Beverage Association, who have a Spark name, but no Spark page to respond to them by. This is my response. They claimed that regular and diet sodas can be part of a healthy diet, that there is no proof that they contribute to obesity, and that researc... Read more

  • Foods to avoid according to doctors.

    7/22/2015 3:30:22 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Just read this list online today of foods to avoid. Thought following it, and the flipside of the list, the positive foods to eat, would lead to health in the biggest ways. Foods to Avoid: Bacon: Fat and cholesterol hang onto it. Bread or pasta: High glycemic index, not whole foods,... Read more

  • When we do not know the best way to pray for ourselves or others......

    7/21/2015 1:16:08 PM, by 7HEISTHEANSWER

    Do you ever feel as I have-how should I best pray for myself or others? This was on my mind this morning and then I found my heart and lips speaking the very first verse that follows in a moment. God knew my need to hear more about this topic so as I began to work in my kitchen I took out a cd ... Read more

  • Never a Bad day but Perhaps a Bad Moment †

    7/21/2015 10:37:33 AM, by -RESAMARIE

    Honestly, this time has been different and let me explain why. I went to a church group for help losing weight. I prayed about it and so did many others who attended. It was a great start, as usual for me but this time I had asked God for support for me to continue on being able to "Eat to Live an... Read more

  • At peace

    7/20/2015 6:19:18 AM, by RORYTA

    The last blog entry I made was in October 2013. Soon after, I pretty much hated the idea of tracking and blogging. 2014 was possibly the worst year in my life. I found myself stuck, unable to get out, unable to move, unable to live. I struggled with everything, not just my health. I was depres... Read more

  • Try A Little Love: It Couldn't Hurt

    7/12/2015 7:26:00 PM, by THE_LITTLE_LADY

    "The history of our bodies began with the formation of an embryo. We were those embryos, just as we were once fetuses, infants, children and adolescents. We were never a sperm cell and an egg cell. The formation of the embryo marks the beginning of a new human life: a new and complete organism. ... Read more

    7/12/2015 7:23:58 PM, by THE_LITTLE_LADY

    "Is there an activity you would love to do but can't because of work pressures? Do you find you don't have time to spend on social, civic, church, community, charitable or cultural activities? You may be ready to downshift. Downshifting is really about deciding that work is taking up too much of ... Read more

  • Democrats Too

    7/12/2015 7:21:37 PM, by THE_LITTLE_LADY

    Buttons were available, at the Democrats for Life of America forum, on September 4, during the 2012 Democratic National Convention, in Charlotte, N.C. "Do We Count?" the buttons asked. The forum was an effort, by pro-life Democrats, to examine, the question. "Can you be pro-life, in a pro-choice p... Read more

    Chuck rented a cabin at the Bay starting Monday at noon July 6 through Friday noon July 10th. The ‘vacation’ was really fantastic baring a few bad times that I had to ‘compartmentalize’ (shut off from my mind / sweep things under the rug) in order to not have his behaviors ruin the vaca...

  • When You Feel you are at the End of the Rope.......

    7/9/2015 5:46:17 PM, by 7HEISTHEANSWER

    I guess all of us feel this way at times for different reasons. Sometimes it is about losing weight, finances, family crisis, health issues, etc. Such times can leave one feeling frustrated or disappointed. What helps me is to get real still and be reminded. God is in control. Nothing is g... Read more

  • A new (fitness) routine

    7/9/2015 2:28:18 PM, by ERNOINACTION

    I wrote about how I had met with our new dietitian last week and this week I met with our new exercise physiologist. I wasn't too impressed with the new dietitian but I really, really like the new exercise person. I was nervous at first because it's a guy...da, dA, DA! Then he started telling... Read more

  • God's Highest Priority For You and Me

    7/6/2015 7:42:55 PM, by 7HEISTHEANSWER

    Do you have any idea what God's priority is for your life? First of all he wants you to know this... No one can love with such intensity as God does. He sent His Only Begotten to deliver this message. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever beli... Read more

  • Time to Begin Anew!!

    7/6/2015 2:38:37 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I had been reading some men's fitness magazines lately. You know, the ones with the guys with the buff bods on the cover. Then, yesterday, I was leaning into the mirror with my shirt off, and saw my almighty girth in all of it's full color. I had been kidding myself that losing 33 pounds since I s... Read more

  • Happy Fourth of July!

    7/4/2015 1:05:56 PM, by LEESA-B

    Yesterday I was, as expected, ridiculously sore. I didn't even try to do the other Jillian Michaels' DVD - I saved that for this morning. 198 362 Since I didn't do a strength DVD, I went for a really long (albeit slow) walk. At least I got my 10,000 steps in! I hope everyone has a sa... Read more

  • I thought hard about posting this one on a weight loss site.

    7/4/2015 1:51:44 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    But it seems to be the main format I have for writing my comments. I just think I have seen a lot of hatred spewed at people crossing the borders lately, or as many say, Illegal immigrants. I just wanted to state that if we had a pathway to citizenship, and welcomed people into our country, we woul... Read more

  • Exercising thus far

    7/2/2015 10:16:32 PM, by LEESA-B

    Thus far for the month (a whopping two days in and all) I am on track for exercising. Wednesday I went for a jog (with lots of walking) for 40 minutes and this morning I did a Jillian Michaels DVD. Jillian Michaels is a harsh taskmistress. I'm already getting sore, and I know from experie... Read more
