Life in general - When something is upsetting me, think ahead 5 years - will this matter then? It really helps put things in perspective.

Weight - when tempted to eat something that will taste good now but isn't in my food plan, think about how I'll feel AFTER I eat it - will I be happy I had it or will I feel bad because I didn't follow through on my plan.

Finances - ALWAYS pay your credit card bill IN FULL at the end of each month. Think about the interest you will pay as throwing money in the trash. REALLY - if you are carrying a balance look at the interest on this month's bill. Imagine yourself taking that amount of cash and throwing it in the trash and lighting a match to it. That's what you are doing if you are paying interest on credit cards. Make a plan NOW to pay off credit card debt.

Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want,
but the realization of how much you already have.

LOL! Do you mean today or in my life?

Seriously, it had to be my sister. She came to town 50 pounds lighter. She talked with me about her eating changes. I was in tears. I was motivated and happy for her, so disgusted with me. But, it started me on my weight loss journey and here I am today!!!

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
