“Living a healthy lifestyle will only deprive you of poor health, lethargy, and fat.” ~ Jill Johnson

“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.

The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. ....The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "

Keep on going no matter WHAT that scale pops up ............ Remember, it is just a 'ballpark' figure ............. Maybe you added some ST ............. (and it does not take much to show an increase on the scale) ................ Perhaps you ate or drank something salty and if you keep on going and drink your water quota .......... it will likely be flushed away! (Dont' let the scale be the judge and jury ................. the jury is still OUT ............... AND YOU ARE IN!!! emoticon

I try to remind myself everyday of these two things:

"Always leave the last bite!" and "Hold on to my arm....let's journey together!"
"Paula's Thoughts"

We can't make it without each other and it feels so good to still see some food on your plate after you have finished a meal.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Paula emoticon

"Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!"

"You can never gain too far from your goal, that you can't return and lose it!"

"Hold on to my arm & let's journey together!"

"Paula's Personal Declarations" are now known as "Paula's Thoughts".

With every difficult step you take forward in your struggle, you are giving yourself a hug, kiss, "pat on the back" and "an I love you".
