4 Noble Truths

1. Suffering is a part of life
2. Suffering is caused by our attachments and avoidances.
3. Suffering can be ended.
4. Freedom from suffering is possible by following the Eightfold path.

Bigotry disguised as morality is still bigotry just as an outhouse with
marble columns is still an outhouse.

I Deserve a Treat Because ...

I have gone from 310 pounds down to 180 pounds

I have gone from a size 26 to a size 14

I have stayed on track getting healthy and losing weight for a year and a half

I exercise and track my food daily even though its sometimes a struggle

I am now striving to try new and exciting things that I was never confident enough or physically able to do when I was 100 pound heavier

I motivate my friends and family to make changes in their own lives so they can get healthy too

I am a good mother and wife and am changing my habits and lifestyle to give my family a longer & better life as well


I reward my self for each 5 pounds lost. I have a stack of envelopes with each weight goal writen on the front (200lbs - 195lbs - 190lbs ect...)
Inside each envelope there is a small reward (hair cut, new jeans, pedicure ect...). I have forgotten which rewards are in which envelope so each time I reach a goal its a total surprise as well, which is nice. I do remember that in my final goal envelope of 150pounds there is a weekend trip for me and hubby... I cant wait to reach that envelope.
