I was half asleep on the ride down there and back. This week our lawn mower decided not to work. We pulled ... Read more

She said I need to consider this part of my therapy, to learn to enjoy doing for myself. She also said I n... Read more

  • Choose Life

    5/19/2015 12:23:26 PM, by AGRACE1112

    Being positive is a choice, it doesn't just happen. It is not a feeling, it is not an ongoing state of mind. Joy is a battle, a vicious war of the soul. It is constantly under threat of defeat by the world and even those closest to us who don’t think about what they say. Faith, like joy is a ... Read more

    So, I'm still at it, going strong. I'm still suffering from the occasional binge, but I've been trying really hard to make sure if I do, it's with something healthy - like celery.

    Dieting is so hard. Everyone eats, we have to to exist. But when I eat, I try to remember to think "why am I eating?" Am I hungry or does it just taste good or maybe I'm just bored.
