I have started and failed more times than I wish to count. How many times am I going to do this? It's been too long. Too many excuses.

I am worth this. I want to do this for me. I've spent a lot of time reflecting on my life and the people in it. I made changes for my own good. Some were hard to make. If I cannot garner respect and positivity from someone, I can no longer have them in my life on a regular basis. I am a stronger person for it and must continue to seek my peace. Life is too short.

I have to work hard to establish some sort of routine in my life. I will have to do that to reach my goals. I am truly blessed.

I first joined on 6/29/2008. I couldn't figure out how to reset my page and started this one.

I'll keep this in case I feel I can actually do this. Too much and too hard for me to do now. Maybe later.

    Hi Zelda, There is so much good that Chicory Root Powder does ! I began it for my osteoarthritis but quickly found how its boosted my weight loss so I went back to research it more. I have multiple health problems and over the passed few years have been researching supplements to replace my prescriptions with and let my doctor know every supplement I am on and match them against my routine bloodwork to take care of whatever I am high or low on, mostly vitamins & minerals but this Chicory Root Powder has been a game changer for me and I am sure if you research it you may find it can help you too in a healthy way. :) Good luck on your health journey ~!
