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

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?

    A positive attitude
    may not solve all your problems,
    but it will annoy enough people
    to make it worth the effort.

    Easter is a time of love, of loved ones, peace. and prayer.
    It is a time when we say a quiet thanks. for all that we have
    and for all that the future holds.
    Easter is a feeling in our hearts of hope and faith and trust.
    And it is a time for remembering with love and appreciation for
    all the people who make a difference in our lives...people like you.

    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.”
