Choose your hard.

Wednesday, February 06, 2013



Yes, sometimes this journey we have chosen is hard. I'm not going to lie about that. I have to keep my goals constantly within view to stay motivated. I have to be determined every day. If you need help with motivation, do a photo collage & look at it several times a day. Include photos of you looking slimmer. If you don't have any, use photos of slim people -- the photos don't have to be of you. I have before & after photos on my collage of people who have lost a lot of weight. In your collage, include reasons why you want to lose weight, or eat healthier foods, or whatever your goals are (run a marathon, run a half marathon, etc.).

Don't make excuses. Just do what you have to do to reach your goals.





Keep trying. Keep pushing.



Keep stepping.



Don't forget to be yourself. emoticon



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Eash of our journeys is different and we can still encourage each other since our goal is all the same. When we can see the end, it is worth everything. emoticon

    This is an amazing statement of how we can choose what will be our journey. Yes, weight loss is hard, but i think being sick is harder. God bless you, Nilla!
Thanks so much for sharing these. I really do look forward to them!

Don't let a setback become a failure.

Monday, February 04, 2013



Your health IS worth the effort. YOU are worth the effort. Please, never forget that. emoticon

Has something been weighing you down (other than your weight)? Maybe it's time to let it go so that you can finally fly.



Remember, you are loved!!



When I am struggling & can't seem to get things moving, I turn to God. He is such a blessing to me & He has never let me down. One of the hardest things to learn is to praise Him during the tough times, but once you learn that lesson, you will never be the same -- your life will never be the same.



We had communion at church yesterday & I thought this was so cute!! It would add a little calorie burning kick to things. emoticon



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

6. You like frogs
7. You love cake
8. You are commited to exercise

12. You struggle like us all but do not give in to it much.
13. You are beautiful
14. You are married.
16. You are a hard worker but that is not where your joy comes from.
17. You want to see others succeed (back to loving people)

Sprinkle around a little joy & laughter. :-)

Saturday, February 02, 2013



You know me, I love a good chuckle!! It's Saturday. What a great way to start the day, right?



This next one is soooooo me. I've often thought that if someone ever tried to kidnap me, they wouldn't keep me long. I'm thinking they'd call my husband & pay HIM to bring me back. emoticon



This one is good. I feel like this sometimes.



This happens to me once in awhile, too.



Don't let this happen to you. emoticon



When in doubt, work out!!



Have a fantastic Saturday!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
