Maleficent is my very favorite Disney character.
Faith inspires me so I'm including a picture. Read her story at http://www.faiththedog.net/
I'm not a fan of scales,-they encourage my obsessive nature...so i don't use them.
Hello to All!
I'm Shanta and I'm a recovering compulsive overeater, undereater, and bulimic. I've fallen off the wagon enough times (in life and with the food) to know you never have to stay down there---get back up and enjoy the ride!
I believe every thought we think and every word we speak creates our lives:
"The Universe totally supports every thought I choose to think and believe. I have unlimited choices about what I think. I choose balance, harmony, and peace, and I express it in my Life." ~Louise L. Hay~
[sidenote from me---Louise Hay is an incredibly inspirational author and speaker. Visit www.LouiseHay.com and check out her daily affirmation for added motivation]...
Therefore, I choose to be positive. I don't do it all the time; however, it is a work in progress and the more I practice the better I get. I am also the Co-Leader of 12 Steps Approach to Eating Disorders; we're a really great SparkTeam focused on recovery by surrendering our addiction to our Higher Power. Please join us!
I'd love to encourage others and receive the same on this, our daily journey...
Let's Sparkle and Spark today!
I am making progress in my fitness and health, thank you SparkPeople! While I don't use scales, my clothes are loosening and my energy level has soared (the compliments from others are a boost as well)!
In regards to life, I am continuing to pray for a full time job and mentally opening myself up to wonderful, new job opportunities. When that perfect job arrives (today I hope!) I am ready...
Okay, real talk for a moment: In all actuality I am writing this update because I am trying to turn away from old thought patterns of negativity, defeat, and not being good enough,-basically things that keep me from loving myself. I'm choosing to believe that the Lord is watching over me and everything is working out for my highest good.
I'll leave you with this quote. I actually photographed it on my picture phone and now it's my cell's wallpaper:
This is God.
I will be handling all your problems today.
I will not need your help.
So, have a good day.
Keep on Sparkling and Sparking Folks. I know I will...
To love myself more and more each day.
I run.... I walk the stairs by my home....I'm a vegetarian...I work on not grazing throughout the day.
I am fabulous.
I believe in the power of positivity.
I believe in the power of self-love.
