I am sharing my thoughts on how to deal with changing your body image, because I know first-hand that it is not as easy as just losing weight.

Those who have never been obese cannot relate to this topic. I had a woman ask me, "Do people that are fat like it?".  I know I...

As I look at my journal, I see many reasons for stress eating. My number one reason this month was my kids. I am not shy about sharing my struggles as a parent. I have been in support groups for special needs moms for years. All my friends have heard my struggle with h...

I am enjoying life again.

I had plans to go to Nashville with my "craziest girlfriends", so I set my next goal for that weekend. I decided I would suprise my friends with this slimmer version of myself. I had so much more energy, I was enjoying life again! I could...

Many Americans are dependent on C-pap machines, and so was I.

By Febuary, my husband said that when I slept without my C-Pap, I did not struggle for breath.  So...  I unplugged that machine and nevery used it again! Many Americans are dependent on C-pap machines, a...

That is not a typo!

I love it when I do not face a new year with regrets about my weight. I wrote: "I am grateful that I don't have the guilt of being overweight. Now I know how to deal with it."  I was still not at my ideal weight. I did not have the helpless feeling t...

The stress does not go away.  We all know that, but we have our favorite coping strategies. The big difference this year was,that in spite of my stressors of decorating, hosting a weekly support group, and working my business (special needs childcare), I was able to fi...

My jounal reflects the stress and frustrations I experienced with my now, "adult children".  When I read the jounal, it reminds me that the stressors were definately there, I was totally out of controll of my children's behaviors, but I leaned on my faith in God's prom...
