There will be good days and bad days. Remember to stay centered. There will be challenges, which will force you to stretch and reach beyond your comfort zone. Trust the presence of God in you to protect and guide you.




Sista!

Going into prayer for every Sister that's connected to this Team .
We rebuke cancer, depression, loneliness, debt, and anything else that may be weighing us down!
If you desire prayer, just simply ask. I don't need to know your situation because God knows!
It's praying time.
Amen!

Martin Luther King's 'Letter From Birmingham Jail'


Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King wrote this landmark missive. It was republished several months later in The Atlantic.

The Editors
Apr 16 2013, 11:00 AM ET

A MUST READ letter for it is still true in 2013. You better open your eyes. Hater and hate is very wide and never. Love other but don't be fooled here.

STRONG WOMAN words!

STRONG WOMEN sang loud

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an' pretend
'Cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again

Oh yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul

Oh, yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin' arms across the land
But I'm still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh, yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman

Thank you for you many positive words of encouragement and you are so right self love instead of constantly looking for outside validation of what we consider love or acceptance to be and when not finding it relying on over consumption of food or other negative behaviors to comfort it's what got a lot of us to being over weight.

Have a wonderful day and journey ladies and lets do our best to stay on the right path. emoticon emoticon

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies!!!! Stop letting loneliness be the reason for bad choices.. Get to know, appreciate, love and enjoy the woman in the mirror.. If you can't enjoy being alone with you how do you expect someone else too...


Many times in life we look for the approval of others by measuring our worth by their accolades, comments or bravados but their comes a time we have to tell ourselves...I AM ENOUGH! ~ Stylicia Bowden ~

****************************************
***************************

Sometimes I Dance Alone

Sometimes I dance alone because I can
Not because I'm lonely or in need of a man
Sometimes this is what I call spending time with "ME"
So I turn on my music and let my soul free

It's nothing wrong with spending time alone
It is at this time my spirit can roam
besides I enjoy spending time with "Me"
because during this time I can hear him speak

I dance because I'm happy
I dance because I'm free
There once was a time I didn't know what to do with "ME"
Being alone was like some kind of curse
because at this time I didn't know my self WORTH

But stop the presses Keepers, Today I am free
Being alone is like buying "Gucci" to me
I plan time in advance to spend with "ME"
So I can dance, dance, dance
Chloe

Have a wonderful weekend Keeper's!!!!

I sincerely agree, Ms. J, with your comment on the knowledge part of nutrition. Reading labels is not for the faint of heart. Once you get over the shock of just how much sodium is in processed foods, and why some of your favorites are so tasty ?? (added sugar and fat), you realize that you need to cook in order to have control over what passes your lips.

Thank you for these posts - I am still digesting the one on love and relationships, especially the three fingers looking back at you emoticon . That was right on point.

Fixing your love life requires accepting the fact that you can be right, & still be wrong. The guidelines for a lasting relationship are simple. Stop fighting, as you point a finger, remember 3 are pointing back at you. Spend twice as much time on inspiration, less on vindication; take responsibility for your contribution, stop focusing on the problem, instead, become part of the solution. As Betty Crocker says, for best results, follow instructions. "Love is patient, love is kind. It's not proud, It's not rude, it's not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. God is Love by Relationship Expert Dr. D Ivan Young

If we remember this we will do better.

Eating a diet with proper food nutrition is a difficult balancing act for most people. There are many complications that can make maintaining a healthy diet difficult, among them the tendency toward eating "junk" food or other unhealthy items, or eating too much or too little. One thing that many people do not often anticipate that can make maintaining a proper diet extremely difficult or even impossible, however, is a lack of knowledge or understanding about food nutrition. By taking the time to properly educate yourself on food nutrition, you'll be much better able to choose a diet that is right for your health.tm

"Nobody wants somebody who wants them for what they have or the position they're in--you want somebody who wants you for you. In case it all goes crazy and it all turns to dust. I want somebody who loves me in the welfare line, eating gumbo, eating fish,black eyed peas and rice. I want somebody that loves Me! God wants you to love Him, not his cars, not his house, not his blessing--love Him."

May God grant you friendship
and warm love within your home.
May He surround you in the quiet peace
that’s found in him alone.

May His hand lead you to laughter,
and his love dry every tear.
As you sense His presence in your life
deeply every year.

in Jesus holy name AMEN

Only a damn fool keeps doing the exact same thing over, and over, and over again, expecting a different outcome. Once you know better, do better. Stop making claims. Anyone can utter declarations, but true revelation brings about transformation. When you really change, you won't have to spit verbs, your actions will speak much louder than your words. by Relationship Expert D Ivan Young

Father, this Believer seeks Your direction. We stand with them, that You would make Your plan clear. Open great doors of opportunity for them in the coming weeks and months. May You be glorified in all that they do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


God Bless You


But while our personality is a gift from God, within it lies our humanness—our frailty and the sinfulness of our body, mind, and soul. We’ve all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We simply can’t live up to what we need to be…but thank God for the blood of Jesus, which justifies us and declares us “Not guilty!” (Romans 5:1)

Your Freedom…Paid in Full!
“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” – John 8:36

Can't save money
.by TaFil. on Monday, April 18, 2011 at 6:20pm.

5 Reasons Black Women Can’t Save Money



Earlier this year the Insight Center for Community Economic Development published a study which found that the median wealth of single black women is $100 compared to that of single white women at $41,000. Don’t be fooled by thinking the disparity is caused by just a difference in income. Income and wealth are not the same! Income is what we bring in annually, while wealth is basically established by what we decide to do with the resources we bring in.

Here are 5 behaviors Black women tend to participate in more frequently than other female counterparts which perpetuate this staggering economic gap:

1. We treat boyfriends like husbands. We won’t get on how many different ways this behavior is detrimental, but speaking financially, co-signing on loans and entering long-term agreements with someone who has not even attempted to commit to you on a long term basis is ridiculous. More times than not, Black women are left with the debt of a brother who has moved on and is driving his new girlfriend around in the car you still have to pay the note on.

How To Live Big On A Small Budget

2. We don’t know how to say, “NO!” We tend to be givers by nature, but unfortunately we give until the point of self-deprivation. First to the church, then to bills and then to relatives and friends who have no means of paying us back. We believe that we are “helping” everyone around us from trifling siblings to grown children, but really we are enabling the people we love the most, not to mention damaging our own financial futures. Remember, the worst thing you can do for a broke person is become one of them!

3. We make our hair and nails a top priority. As Black women, being fly is definitely a priority, but can this be done on some type of budget? Are the nails with all the intricate designs that add an additional $10 to every pedicure really that important? Imagine what could happen if we rocked hairstyles and manicures that were less flashy and something we could maintain on our own in between appointments.

4. We buy children name brand clothing. Why should any infant or toddler be Gucci'd down? Children will not die from not having Baby Phat symbols across their chest. Name brand clothing is to impress your friends and strangers on the street who, quite frankly, really could care less. If you shopped at stores like Target, think of all the money you could actually put into that child's college fund!



5. We care too much about what our car looks like. Many of us are the first to graduate from college in our families and we want to make sure that everybody from the 'hood knows that "we've made it!" What's the easiest way to show this? A big flashy car that we can't even afford to replace a tire on. If you can't afford the maintenance on a vehicle, especially the preventative maintenance, then you can't afford the car. It's really that simple!



It's time for Black women to wake up and pay attention to what's really important in life. What's the point in looking like a million bucks, when you're barely worth a hundred?

Yes I Am My Sister's Keeper
Good Afternoon Keepers!! Once you admit something is holding you back, then ask "what am I willing to do about it" what are you willing to do to have peace in your life?
I agree with the Keeper we must take a long look at what's holding us back change or remove it from us and start the change.

ý"It's ok to Quit......

1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect their position and keep it moving!

2. Quit telling people your secrets when you know they are not going to keep them! And if you keep telling them, then quit getting mad when they tell your secrets!
...
3. Quit trying to pull people on your journey who don't want to travel with you. Either they believe in you and value you...or they don't!

4. Quit complaining about things you can't and won't change!

5. Quit gossiping about other people! Minding our own business should be a full time job!

6. Quit blaming each other for things that in the big picture aren't going to matter three weeks from now! Talk solutions...and then implement them!

7. Quit eating things you know are not good for you! If you can't quit...eat smaller portions!

8. Quit buying things when we know we can't afford them! If you don't have self control, then quit going to the stores! Quit charging things, especially when you don't NEED them!

9. Quit staying in unhealthy relationships! It is not okay for people to verbally or physically abuse you! So quit lying to yourself! It is not okay to stay in the marriage for the children! Ask them and they will tell you that they really would prefer to see you happy and that the misery you and your spouse/partner are living with is affecting them!

10. Quit letting family members rope you into the drama! -Start telling them you don't want to hear it! Quit spreading the drama! Quit calling other relatives and telling them about your cousin or aunt! Go back to #5 minding your own business should be enough to keep you busy!

11. Quit trying to change people! IT DOESN'T WORK! Quit cussing people out when you know that they are just being the miserable and jealous people that they are!

12. Quit the job you hate! Start pursuing your passion. Find the job that fuels your passion BEFORE you quit!

13. Quit volunteering for things that you aren't getting any personal fulfillment from anymore! Quit volunteering for things and then failing to follow through with your commitment!

14. Quit listening to the naysayers! Quit watching the depressing news if you are going to live in the doom and gloom of it all!

15. Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can't do what you want to do!

16. Quit waiting on others to give you the answers...and start finding the answers for yourself! If what you are doing isn't working for you...then quit it!

17. Quit settling and start making your dreams a reality!- Quit being afraid and START LIVING YOUR LIFE! CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT! If you want something different than what you have had in the past.....you must quit doing what you have done before and DO something different! JUST QUIT IT ...... and START DOING something to create the experience you want!

My you have a Bless week.

Message of the Week!!

You Are Not Your Mistakes !!!!!

So many individuals feel disappointed of themselves because of the mistakes that they have made in life. In fact many do not only feel disappointed but some are even looked down on by their family and peers. These individuals are often referred as the "black sheep" or the "bad seed". These labels whether believed by oneself or others are somewhat devastating, the negative image will always dampen their positive qualities. Not only will outsiders overlook the good points but it will also paralyze the individual from trying to do anything different ..

It is very hard to feel confident about trying anything new once one sees self in such a negative light. Let's call it the "why even bother mentality". This type of mentality it's based on fear. It is being scared of even trying to do anything positive. Once a person's confidence has been crushed it can not stand to make errors or won't even believe to be capable of accomplishing anything positive..

For those individuals affected by the "why even bother mentality" you can get rid of this negative state of mind by keeping in mind that we all make mistakes and that they are simply part of life. In fact it is how we mature. We fall, pick up, learn and keep on moving with new insightful knowledge

So, for your own sake keep in mind that you are not your mistakes and you can always learn a valuable lesson from experiences. They will help you make wiser choices the next time around. Instead learn to appreciate both positive and negative experiences each in their own way

I Am My Sister's Keeper

It takes courage

To refrain from gossip When others delight in it,To stand up for the absent person

Who is being abused. It takes courage To live honestly Within your means, And not dishonestly On the means of others. It takes courage To be a REAL man or a TRUE woman, To hold fast to your ideals When it causes you To be ...looked upon As strange and peculiar. It takes courage To be talked about, And remain silent, When a word would justify you In the eyes of others, But which you dare not speak Because it would injure another.It takes courage To refuse to do something That is wrong Although everyone else May be doing it With attitudes as carefree As a summer song. It takes courageTo live according To your own convictions,To deny yourself What you cannot afford. To love your neighbor As yourself............

Sister Poem

The Joy of Sisterhood comes alive in this poem.
Sisters

© ANGELICA MACHADO
God sent us to be sisters
So we can be best of friends
To be there for one another
Even when there is pain
I thank the lord for sending my sisters to me
For whom i truly love and care
We shared so many things together
Like laughter and some scares
It’s funny how we sometimes argue
I guess its normal, in this world
But, having you as my sister
Means more to me, more than you'll ever know
I wouldn’t trade you for anything
I will never let go
As our friendship continues to grow
So will my love for you
Just always remember you can talk to me
I'll be the best friend you ever knew

I must add this here Divas.

From the relationship beast~Mr. Steven James Dixon~

"If women have self respect first, you don't have to worry about a man showing you respect. You shouldn't have to ask for respect, your body language should demand it. It starts day one. If you give a man your number out at the club at 9PM and then he calls you at 3AM that night he d...oesn't respect you."

If I got your back who have got my back?

Have you felt like you where a junk food junkie? I have and it start today. Candy,Ice-cream. cookies and you name it I put it in my mouth today.
Setting here reading email and I had to lol because in my email was this.

Junk Food Junkie: Food Addiction is Real
blogs.webmd.com/pamela-peeke-md/2010
/0
4/junk-food-junkie-food-addiction-isR>-real.html?ecd=wnl_wmh_051910



Here are some tips to help you navigate the treacherous waters of addictive eating.



1. Make a list of any foods that lead to overeating and/or binging. You know what they are. Some of you are sweet eaters, others like starches, and still others have problems with both. Sit down and write them out. Be aware and keep these foods out of your house and stay away from them at restaurants and social gatherings.

2. Do not fall for the “just one little bite” lie. It’s like an alcoholic saying “just one little drink” or a drug addict’s “just one hit” rationalizing. Don’t try it. You’ll lose every time. If it’s an addictive food, you’re having even a small amount may awaken the beast and set you off into a regrettable binge.

3. Get the right attitude. You’re not being deprived of a tasty delight. You’re saving yourself from a shame and guilt-filled binge, and all those extra pounds of body fat.

4. Summon a support team. If you’re really having issues with these foods, then put together your own A-Team. You can draw upon people who show compassion and want to support your efforts to withdraw from these foods. Family, friends, expert counselors, medical and fitness professionals, dietitians and groups like Over eaters Anonymous may be good resources.

5. Be patient and persistent. You need to give your body enough time to adapt and adjust to healthier foods. Even the rats needed 2 weeks to get over their food strike! Keep plenty of fresh produce and lean protein around and plan your meals and snacks so you’re not left in the lurch with only the addictive stuff to choose. You can do this!

I begin my consults and physical exams today to determine if I am a candidate for weight loss surgery. I meet all the general requirements: more than 100 lbs overweight; BMI in the excessive range; and struggling to overcome obesity.
Has anyone here considered or undergone weight loss surgery?
