Happy Mother's Day!

It's Mother's Day as I write this, and we have so much to be grateful for ...  We have our first great-grand baby - this is too hard to believe, but oh so fun!!! 

Tools to Use: 
Dr Andersen has shed new light on how obesity has become so common place and what to do about it. You can go to his site and sign up for his "30 Day Challenge" which will take you quickly through the first part of Dr A's Habits of HealthThese first four chapters focus on preparing for the journey and suggest that we:
  • Look at the "Habits of Dis-ease" 
  • Learn to "Stop, Challenge, and Choose" 
  • Make a distinction between "Problem Solving vs Desired Outcome" 
  • Describe your "Vision!" (see the attached pictures for more inspiration!!  What does "Freedom" mean to you???)
  • Create a Structural Tension Chart
  • Take the Health Quiz - to take it online, go to Dr Andersen's web site, scroll down a little ways and find it along the right hand side.
Favorite Quotes this week:
This is amazing! It's just like you said, I not just "losing" ... I'm successfully tapping into my storage tank of fuel! 

I wasn't sure if this would work but I just kept trusting and it's like how the lights come on when you enter the room! 

I'm so comfortable in my skin!  I'm happy with the two pound loss per month. I'm feeling safe. 

I am restarting AGAIN this weekend. (My friend) has inspired me big time. Thank you for not giving up on me. 

I was scared to give up my old clothes.  I was really scared to give up my "old self".  I was scared to give away my old habits and my comfort zone.  I was holding onto it all...  But I am recently wearing size 12-14 and saving size 22W feels kinda like hoarding ... I have been thinking that it is ridiculous to hold onto size XL, 1X and 2X clothes when I will not to that size ever again ... I've been terrified to let go of those habits and that comfort zone...  But I am becoming a new person.  I just needed to trust myself enough to let go forever.  Why is that so hard to do?
