Good Reading!!

I am recommending the book "Just 10 LBS" by Brad Lamm. He appears on the Dr. Oz show and is a recommended reading from Dr. Oz for weight loss issues. I have been reading it and have learned alot about why I binge and how to overcome my eating addiction.
Just read this in the Just 10 Lbs book and it really opened my eyes. Our health doesn't just belong to us. It belongs to our families also. If I were to suffer a debilitating illness it would be my family that would have to take care of me thus changing their live's forever. I would think of the stress, worry, anxiety etc. that it would put them through. If I love those who love me I will honor my body and not engage in "health" destructive behaviors. I will make healthy choices every day to honor my body, myself and my family who I love and cherish dearly!!!
Going out for my walk now!!!

Love yourself!!

Working on loving myself more...trying to accept that a couple of extra inches around my waist does not define me as a person.  I have many reasons to love my body:
I have two strong legs that take me where I need to go and never fail me!!  I have hands and arms that are capable of working hard to earn a living but also can give loving embraces to those I care about.  This body brought forth my 3 beautiful children who I cherish dearly.  I have eyes that help me to see and appreciate all the beautiful things in this world that God has put before us like rainbows and flowers and radiant sunsets.  My nose allows me to enjoy wonderful smells like a fresh Spring breeze, newly mowed grass, warm cookies straight from the oven,  and the baby smell of a tiny infant.  My ears allow me to hear a babbling brook, birds chirping, peepers peeping, the sound of my children's laughter, and my husband's I love yous.  My skin let's me feel loving touches, warm Spring breezes and gentle Summer showers.  My heart is strong and loving.  My mouth let's me share my deepest feelings and enjoy the tastes of all kinds of wonderful food and allows me to nourish this gift I have been given.  I will do everything in my power to take care of my body, to appreciate it so much more and give it all the health it deserves.  After all... it really has done so much for me my whole life.  So for all of you....please love yourself and your body no matter what stage in life you are in and take good care of it.  It's the only one you've got!
