What is one of my favorite dieting secrets?


I am not a good dieter. I mean I really am not. But I have found this. Our bodies make cortisol when we are stressed. I mean it makes a lot of it. We have to learn to lay down our burdens at the feet of our Father...... Everyday, sometimes 10 times a day. It isn't easy!

Last year I physically put this into practice. I was so stressed. We had lost our house, my last Grandparent passed away, financially things were iffy, our oldest son was acting out. I almost had a stroke. I ended up int he hospital with a nurse saying to me calm down NOW or you are going have a stroke. Not good at 38! Or any age at that. So, I did I calmed down. PERIOD. It wasn't me it was God. He soothed my pain and I released the stress. I lost 45 pounds. I kid you not.




Psalm 63
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.



1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.


He is always by your side. He knows what is important to us. It really does matter to Him.


Love you all! Have a super Wednesday!

I know that stress is bad for my weight. I eat more and can not lose when I'm stressed out.

I bought an iPhone app that has meditations and when I listen to the going to sleep one at night...I sleep better and tend to have a less stressful day.

We should all ban stress from our lives!

I hope things are going better for you now!
