  • I am leaving my current church as of Friday

    12/7/2016 10:46:04 PM, by ONEAGLESWINGS36

    The title says it all. I made a decision to leave after someone who I know started telling me how to dress and how to fix my hair according to holiness standards at the church. Between that and the pastor preaching at us about oneness I have had enough stress that my hair is falling out and my diet ... Read more

    After several phone calls today I managed to figure out how to remove my dad's name from several things and to get an appt. tomorrow with the county VA rep.

  • Changing my thinking and attitude . . .

    12/7/2016 10:35:40 PM, by BECKMIT

    I will consider today another successful day. Not following plan 100% but happy with how I'm doing. I'm working on a plan that I can actually live with regarding food and exercise because this MUST be a lifestyle change. If I get so radical that I cannot maintain my regimen, then it will only be a t... Read more

    My husband and I traveled over 200 miles today to see his brother Garrett before he has his surgery on December 15th. We were very pleasantly surprised to see how well he looked (the last time we saw him, his appetite was very poor and he had lost quite a bit of weight). Today, he was back to a he... Read more

    Last night i had a really weird dream that i was walking through the mountains. Well, first I was driving another girl (not someone i recognize) somewhere, along really twisty, steep roads, some of them not even paved. Then we got to a place that the car couldn't follow the road, because it was just... Read more

  • What Was I Thinking

    12/7/2016 8:39:33 PM, by MISSJACQUE

    I've been struggling with getting a walk in everyday. It's laziness on my part really. I just can't get motivated for whatever reason. I think this week it's due to hubby being home as he doesn't go to work till late afternoon and once he's gone I'm in get dinner prepped and ready for the kids an... Read more

    12/7/2016 8:02:58 PM, by QUEENTHORN

    I didn't make it to the gym. I spent most of the day waiting for the wee darlings to show up. And because I didn't get to nap I'm utterly exhausted. Even the idea of doing laundry seems so daunting. I did a bit of straightening up and I did cook dinner for my family. Now I didn't do kitchen clean up... Read more

    Today would have been my momma's birthday. She went to heaven February 28 1998. I miss her every day. She kept our family together. She was strong but had a tender soul. She did not raise her voice ever. She taught all of us the difference between right and wrong. She had a strong faith and a posit... Read more

  • Excruciating back pain is killing my plans to exercise today

    12/7/2016 1:49:56 PM, by HOLLI64

    I can barely move, so I won't be doing much exercise today. I will try to do arm exercises without weights, but that is all I can do because I can barely walk from the bed to the bathroom, and putting any weight on my upper body makes my back worse. I did get in some walking, because I had no ... Read more
