I know I am a daughter of God and temple of the holy spirit which is in me. I want my intention, to treat myself as such, to be a reality. This is the day wherein Jesus is making up His jewels. This is also the day the Lord hath made and I will rejoice and be glad in it.

"A diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure."~ Unknown

I think He is making a diamond of me. Some days the pressure is unbelievable. I let it get to me in the past and the way I dealt with the mental stress and pain was to eat sweets. I now practice abstaining from sweets and junk food and walk at least 5 days a week for 20 minutes, increasing not only my exercising but my desire to keep my eye on Jesus who is the author and finisher of my faith..

You've heard the old adage, "When you see it you will believe it". That is true. But in order to have the blessings of health I must first believe I have it. So the other side of the coin is "When I believe it I will see it". "Act as if and it will be". "Now is the Time"
"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly."~ Richard Bach

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal."~ Henry Ford

.People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing--that's why we recommend it daily.
- Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker

"If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down. "~ Mary Pickford

"What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists...and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want...and are fully determined not to quit until you get it."~ Alexander Graham Bell

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "~ Charles Swindoll

Achievement seems to be connected with action.
Successful men and women keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
~Conrad Hilton

If I stumble and fall, I will keep getting back up. I will never quit!

My Goals:
My intention is to be free of sugar and junk food addictions. But I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg. Underneath are all the negative thoughts that increase the stress level so that I turn to the junk food for solace in the first place. My main goal is to overcome all negativity through the merits of Jesus Christ and that is really what will set me free to be me.

My Program:

1. Pray, as if everything depended on God.
2.Work as though everything depended on me.
3. Keep a journal, on SP, of what I eat.
4. Keep a personal journal of what is eating at me.
5. Rely on the merits of Jesus Christ, to overcome evil with good.
6. Express gratitude, to my Heavenly Father, daily for every blessing and every step of progress.
7. Rest in peace knowing God is in control.

Personal Information:
I live in Manti, a small town in central Utah.

Other Information:
My favorite books are the Scriptures, Non Fiction, Positive Thinking and Self Help books.

    Welcome to the EE team!!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!!

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success!

    ~~best of luck to you on all of your goals!!!
