Although it can be difficult at times, asking for help can be one of the best things you can do for yourself while trying to commit to a healthier lifestyle. You're not putting people out, you're not being a bother, you're just asking for someone to lift you up. Put yourself first and know that friends and family absolutely want to see you succeed, and further, will probably be touched that you asked for their assistance.

When you start to get down, go volunteer some time at your local hospital. It will make you feel better because you're giving a helping hand to those that may need that and it helps keep your head on straight when you start to think how bad things are for you.306
Today is mother's day and it is a fantastic day because my children helped me to empty the dishwasher. That's it. As a mom I don't need fancy jewels, big gifts, or vacations. All I need is a helping hand with a smile.
We eat out more frequently than I care to admit! When we do GO OUT, I try to pick up a take-out menu for those times when I need a helping hand with dinner or any other meal! After having ordered from a take-out menu at my MIL,we had to change our orders because THE MENU HAD CHANGED! It was ...
an OUTDATED MENU!!! So, now I WRITE the CURRENT DATE on the TOP of the take-out Menu so I'll know the date [menus are usually good for about 3 mos.] the next time I'm ordering from a take-out menu!!!
