So true about Jesus saving and not us. Remove the toxins from your body also by eating Healthier food. Thats what I am doing not going on fads just eating healthier food. Fruit vegies and fish occasional meat as Women need a little iron in their diet. I am not big on taking supplements. But to those who do thats not an issue. Drinking 8 160ml glasses of water per day. Including my green tea. Every thing in moderation. I do eat a little dairy as well. Nuts and grains and Herbs. I heard that at each meal sitting 2 fist fulls of food on the plate is sufficient My fist are tiny so I am working with that and suprising enough I feel full after I eat. It could be a myth but it works for me. Look into it and see if its true. Sure reduces the portions for me. Have a happy day.

What I have learned is that removing toxic people from your life is very important. One of these people is a family member the other is a co-worker. I have learned to limit my time with them because no matter what I say to encourage they are always seeing the glass half empty I realized while I care for them both I cannot save them. Jesus saves, Kim does not. I can pray for them. It took a while for me to learn that. Limiting my time with them has helped me a great deal.

What clicks for me is previous to SP I swore I was counting all my intake, doing my workouts yet the scale was stuck for months and I said over and over and over I can't lose no matter what I do. WELL, I have now lost 10.5 lbs and 13 total inches and what it boils down to is WE CAN if are we willing to do what it takes, ITS A CHOICE, we are not victims, I am just positive its safe to say no bucket of fat came out of the sky and dumped on us, instead our intake exceeded our output(poor choices) and now if we make a choice we can get rid of the extra. My sister is in the I cant mode and I have explained the resource of SP but she stays by choice in the rut of talking about it and that pretty much consumes her life, I am getting really close to telling her like one members hubby below told her ...well then that is her "choice" to not lose the weight, she would be shocked since she thinks that "fat cloud" is pouring over her head. emoticon

Thank you sooooo much for posting this!!! This happens to be a struggle for me. I had an awakening about this very subject a few months ago, it is definitely a daily effort to conquer making MY OWN CHOICES! emoticon

When I met my husband several years ago we had many long conversations while we were dating. He taught me one of the most valuable lessons because up until that day I had been letting other people run my life.
And I had heard this lesson many times before from friends or my mother but sometimes it takes just a certain moment in time for clarity to enter your life.
He asked me a few questions about my life and if I was happy. I said no, no, no to about 3 of the questions. He paused...and said eight words to me that forever changed my life.

"Well, I guess thats the choice you make."

WOW! CHOICE. A powerful word indeed.

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

Thanks Anita,
I was one of them, didn't realize it, slow learner. Thanks for the reminder not to go back to old ways. When you live with another you do have to be considerate of their feelings you must remember you are a team thats the difficult part. As sometimes one of the team wants to take control it is important to work together thats how marriages last. To comunicate and work the best way together no one individual is the same, we do have to remember that so know one will work exactly the same, thats why it is important to be considerate to the others thoughts and feelings. Every one is at a different level in life. Not always harmonious if people have totally different ways of living what you do then is work out why this person is in your life and what can you learn from them. Everyone enters your life for a reason otherwise it would not happen.You are so right you can't play the blame game. When you have learn't what you are meant to you will live harmoniously or you will move on. Everyone know's exactly what to do when the time is right. We all know our own stuff. So there is no need to worry, it all works out eventually. Have a happy day.

Don't Let Other People Run Your Life
by Gary Vurnum
===============

You probably have seen them. They walk in…and blame someone else for them being late. Or their alarm didn't go off. They don't socialise with you because they worry what their
spouse might think.

They don't speak up in meetings because they worry that other people are going to think that they are stupid. They never take on something new…because they are afraid of the
responsibility.

Don't become one of them.

Say what you think. Live as you want to. Take that course that you've always wanted to.

Blaming someone or something else is just an excuse. You and you alone are responsible for where you are today. Not your ex-wife (or husband). Not your boss. Not your parents. Not your children. YOU.

Don't let other people run your life…theyprobably have enough trouble running their own to worry about yours.

Action Point:

How are you letting other people run your life?

It's easy to complain about how 'hard done by' you are.It's easy to say how 'unlucky' you are. It's easy to blame'them' for your current situation.

Stop looking for the easy way out and beginning looking at ways in which YOU can totally control what YOU do.

Your life will improve dramatically because of it, believe me!

=================

You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
