Hello, I'm here to teach myself how to care for me! I'm a wife, mother of three grown children, and grandmother to five.
I love the great outdoors, my best friend....Buttercup (a quarter horse) and most of all .....I love Jesus Christ

My Goals:


My Program:
Today’s Tasks
1. Read your Advantages response card(s) from day 1.
2. Read other response cards as needed.
3. Continue to eat while sitting down with no or few exceptions.
4. Give yourself credit for helpful eating behaviors.
5. Decide on a coach, mentor or support group.
6. Line up personal support.



Personal Information:
"I used to be that way, but now I am different"... quote by Linda Spangle.


Other Information:
- Take a few deep breaths. Counting to 10 can also help.
- Remind yourself where you are. Look around, notice and name the colors and shapes in the space around you.
- Notice the physical sensations you are experiencing. Whether it’s a sinking feeling, turmoil in your stomach, tension in your hands or jaw, restricted breathing, or heat on the back of your neck, try to name the feelings that go with the sensation.

Using those tips to ground yourself can really help diffuse the situation and stop the likelihood of emotional eating right in its tracks. This can take as little as a minute, or if you like, you can spend more time doing this. To extend this process even further, you can also do a self-check and ask yourself some of the following questions:

- Is this a situation that I can control?
- Is there anything I can do right now that will change or help this situation?
- How big a deal is this, anyway?

    Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability
    to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

    Welcome to the closing of an old door.
    for it is then a new door shall open.
    So, as the old door closes on 2019,
    I will walk through the open door to 2020,
    and walk into a new chapter of my life.
    emoticon emoticon ~~In My New Chapter~~ emoticon emoticon
    I will LAUGH and I will CRY
    And TREASURE the happiness.
    I will GROW from the pain and
    FORGIVE ones who will hurt me.
    I will do my best to FORGET
    For my life is too SHORT
    To live with REGRET.
    emoticon emoticon ~~HAPPY NEW YEAR !!~~ emoticon emoticon
    ""YOU""have made a difference in my life and I will be taking
    ""YOU"" with me through that open door to 2020
    ~Barb~

    We flash them, we smash them.
    We push them way up.
    We shake them, we stuff them
    In the wrong sized cup.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Our boyfriends/husbands just crave them,
    Our children have drained them.
    Some of us have even decided to name them.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    We go through our lives and knock them about.
    But one thing is certain, one thing I must SHOUT!
    Our boobies have been there through thick and through thin,
    And life is too precious to let cancer win!
