Count Your Blessing

If you look at everything you have, and if it was taken away from you, be thankful for the things you have. As the Bible says, if we are thankful for the little things we have, God will bless us with the big things! Think on these things!

Imagine Yourself at Your Very Best for Your Body

I have a great imagination, but never before had I used it to see myself at a smaller size. My advice - take a good in the mirror. Try and imagine your waist a couple inches smaller, your rear a little tighter, etc. Do this at least once a month and really notice all the wonderful changes!
