Care For Another

When I'm feeling "blue," I find if I do a deed for someone else like hold a door, pick up something dropped, give a compliment, say hello to a stranger, etc., I always feel so much better

Clean

For me whenever I am upset or worry about something. I start to clean. I clean things that required a lot of time and By the time that I finished my emotions have passed. Instead of eating Ice cream which I was doing before.

Negativity

Stay away from those negative people that make you doubt yourself. Negative people love company. Become the positive person that makes them feel foolish. Negativity will never help you succeed.

Health Plan - not DIET!

I have decided that I fail at diets, so I am going to think of this as a Health Plan that will increase my energy, my life span, how I feel overall and the it just happens to have a side effect of weight loss. That way I am not measuring my success by the scale, but by my health improvement.

moody

I try to keep a positive attitude and think good about everything. But sometimes I just feel lonely and I try to keep it at bay. Losing my husband left a big void and sometimes it is hard. Better times will come, I have faith.
