This might apply to you, or it might not. I shared it on a different page & received positive responses. In the past I found this true for myself, but not lately.
“Some people feel safer with extra weight on their body. It’s as if the body actually uses weight as a buffer from the world. I was in that situation and I knew I had to address the emotional issues that were making my body feel unsafe. I started doing visualization practices that helped to resolve past traumas and to get my body to feel safer in letting go of the weight. Over the years I’ve found that 65-70% of the clients I work with are using weight as a form of protection. I call this “emotional obesity”. When you work through the issues that are causing emotional obesity and break the association that fat equals safe, the body is much more willing to let go of the weight. After I broke this association and the weight no longer served its purpose – that is, the armor of fat no longer made me feel any safer – the weight all but went away.” Jon Gabriel
I have a visualization page on Pinterest that I visit daily that has goal photos & plans. I visit it daily for inspiration, motivation & encouragement. https://www.pinterest.com/carolyninjoy/vision-board/
Here is a Guide to Seeds that helped me. Today’s photos are mostly about healthy snacks.
“Supposedly, the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans used chia as a staple of their diet and as an energy food. Chia means ‘strength’ in the Mayan language, and they were known as the “Indian Running Food” because runners and warriors would use them for sustenance while running long distances or during battle.”-http://wellnessmama.com/4981/uses-for-chia-seeds/

“A January 2008 article in The New York Times, “A Clutter Too Deep for Mere Bins and Shelves,” quotes Lynne Johnson, president of the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization, who says, “I think someone decides, ‘I’m not going to live my life like this anymore. I’m not going to hold onto my stuff, I’m not going to hold onto my weight.’” Kick Clutter.

“Matcha green tea is available as a concentrated powder and can be found at health food stores. I recommend organic matcha, because it is produced without any artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides.
Do not add matcha green tea powder to boiling water because it will taste “grassy.” Boil the water and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding the tea.
It might take some time to get used to matcha’s flavor.”
Pistachios can also lower your blood pressure and heart rate.
“Process Goals Work Better and Faster Than Outcome Goals: You have no control of the outcome (for example, lose 20 pounds). However, you do have control of the process. Here’s a sample process goal outline:
Exercise 3 days a week
Have just 2 cheat meals a week
No snacking before dinner” Mikey Whitfield, CTT
I have adopted this method. It is easy for me to keep my food log on my laptop. It is easy to acknowledge when I take my prescriptions & vitamins. I enjoyed it when Hubby hugged me & said: “You’re so much smaller. Wow!” I have control of the process. Yay!
I learned a couple of things about stickers on fruit. When they have 4 numbers it means they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified GMO, and 5 numbers starting with 9 means organically grown.
