Hope - A spiritual solution to health

Often times when we are looking for an outside transformation or solution we come to the breaking point of asking for help from a "greater power'...
We’ve lied to ourselves. We keep going around in circles. We are out of options...
Rock bottom is a beautiful place to build a solid life upon.
We are horrified by what we are doing to ourselves with food and become obsessed with diets. Some so terrified to gain weight they went to great lengths to restrict what they ate.
Our weight went down, sometimes to a dangerous level, but we still felt fat.
We lost control, overate again, put the weight back on, and often gain more.
We’ve spent money on weight loss schemes, quick fixes, appetite suppressants, the latest trend, we join clubs, gyms, groups, contemplated surgery, have gotten drastic bypass surgery that alters the way you eat for life.... and we’ve gone to the doctor for some magical cure to our misery.

She had kept asking me..... "How long before your books edits are done"...

A Jealous Friend

Have you ever lost a friend? I did.. this week, and it really hurt my feelings.. Then I blessed and released.

This is me. Saggy loose skin. Deflated boobs. I never shared THIS piece of my story, or plastered in on social media. Maybe I should have. I didn’t because I was shameful of it. WHO ARE YOU to inspire women without a 6 pack? As hard as I tried... I just could love this loose skin and saggy mom boobs. 
Nope. I don’t care what ANYONE tries to convince me of of social media...I didn’t love it, so I saved all my pennies and knew I’d get it fixed when I was done having my kids. 
WELL.. I had met someone. She too had lost a lot of weight, and she messaged me once saying OMG, you just had my DREAM surgery. A total mommy makeover.
If you just walked in on this chapter, back in December, I had 1 pound of loose skin removed and had my boobs brought up past my belly button. 
This week I went to message her and she was GONE. I was...
