Changing to Simple Layout again

Surprise! I have changed my site back to a cleaner, simple layout again.

My previous layout was pretty but not easy on the eyes.

I wanted to change to a layout that was neat and inconspicuous if you are browsing it at work!

I am still converting things, so be patient! :)

Have a happy, healthy and safe weekend!

Changing Your "Spots"


I am loveable and deserve love!

It's often said "a leopard cannot change his spots" when someone believes he cannot change.

This saying goes all the way back to the bible: "Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?"(Jeremiah 13:23)

I used to think that being a fat chick was who I was. Fat was me. My obesity was my leopard spots. I truly believed it was impossible for me to be healthy - I'm fat, I have always been fat -so why even try!!

Most people fail at weight loss because they can't change their spots. They go back to their old ways.

The truth is you can change your spots - but only after you believe you can!

Not a dream. Not a hope. Not a wish.

You really need to believe it is real... like those movies around Christmas time!!

Weight loss is more a mental process than a physical one. Your willpower and self-control, and self-esteem are key to your success.

You need to get your mind in shape before you can get your body in shape!

Are you battling depression or self-loathing? Get that taken care of first or you are setting yourself up for failure!

Losing weight isn't a magic bullet that will fix your life. You are loveable and deserve love right now - you don't need to lose weight for that! Do it for your health, that is the only reason that works.

Caught up in Summer!

First off, let me apologise for the long span between posts. I got so caught up in enjoying the Summer - I never found the time to make a new post!

I kept thinking, "Nothing to report! Life's great!"

I hope you are preparing for a happy, healthy, and safe 4th of July weekend!

Here is a funny video about getting healthy. I lost my weight just as they say by eating less (I made healthier choices, not really less) and moving more.

I would like to thank Starr for giving me the link to this video. It really made me giggle, and feel happy that I am losing weight the best way!
