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 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?

    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!

    October gave a party..the leaves by hundreds came.
    The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, and leaves of every name.
    The Sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand,
    Miss Weather led the dancing, and Professor Wind the band.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    The Chestnuts came in yellow..the Oaks in crimson dressed.
    The lovely Misses Maple in scarlet looked their best;
    all balanced to their partners, and gaily fluttered by.
    The sight was like a rainbow, new fallen from the sky.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Then, in the rustic hollow, at hide-and-seek they played,
    The party closed at sundown, and everybody stayed.
    Professor Wind played louder and they flew along the ground;
    And then the party ended, in jolly 'hands around.'
