    3/2/2015 9:04:34 AM, by CTUPTON

    I have had enough! 225 I want fresh air and get rid of these germs. Someone told me to get meds at the doctor. They always say it is a virus and we have nothing for you, just stuff to reduce symptoms. But I guess there are several antiviral drugs now. I am not used to asking for t... Read more

    3/2/2015 9:01:43 AM, by BECKYF3506

    Saying that we had a non-nutritious weekend would be an understatement. It started off with my husband buying us donuts from our favorite bakery for breakfast on Friday morning. Then my brother in law came over to help us lay some luaun board for the new floor we're putting in the kitchen. ... Read more

    March 2, 2015 PATIENCE AND FAITH There are going to be times when our faith is tested. God wants to see how we will do in certain situations so we are tested. When we are tested, we have so much opportunity to grow. Our endurance grows. Our faith grows. Our patience grows. So next time when tri... Read more

    3/1/2015 9:36:22 PM, by WILLBEA10

    I lost 6 pounds during my 6 day detox. I think it would have been more if I hadn't eaten out 2 of the days. But, even on those 2 days, I tried to stay close to my detox plan. The best part for this deotx was how I felt. I felt better, and lighter. However, the first day was MISERABLE. I was a ... Read more

  • The Reflection in my mirror

    3/1/2015 12:52:44 PM, by NEETER-RN

    I took a good, long look in my mirror today. A full length mirror. It was not a pretty sight. I quickly stepped away, and closed my eyes. The tears threatened to spill down my cheeks. I took a deep breath, and stepped back in front of my reflection. Rolls of unsightly fat, on top of other rolls. ... Read more

    I wrote this to someone today and it seemed important that I tell everyone this: I know you can do it, because if I can do it with my eating issues, anyone has the power.

    Love this photo. I would be the one upside down. And happy to be the only one upside down. It took me a long time to figure out that I liked me, as I am. When I was younger, I would alter my behavior to do what I thought I should, what was expected of me. I would not laugh out loud, or... Read more
