Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Hey my friends. How did you do last week? I’m still bouncing right along trying to cook more at home, eating better and walking when I can. Sometimes I get too focused on something and overdo. Do you know what I mean? Since a couple of weeks ago when I tweaked my way of eating a bit and not pushing myself so much to do walking, I’m feeling and doing better. Funny how that works huh? But sometimes there are days still when the little devil sits on your shoulder and says, “Go ahead, eat that chocolate. It doesn’t matter.” I think we all fight the devils here/there in our life. Let’s all of us get the things off of our chest that need to be out there.
. I will not let people get me down. I will not cringe over the little things of extra work on my desk, more bills that need to be paid, kids schedules or deadlines. I will not play your high school games. I will not let the devil overtake my life. I will not curse in traffic. Today I will put my head up high. I will be me – take it or leave it.
Now my friends, how was your week? Do tell and list some of the things that will *not* get you down this week ❤

Food is never a sin.
Please, stop seeing certain food stuff as sin – the amount of it is the problem. If you could stop eating when you have had a quarter of the chocolate bar, that would not be unhealthy. (Unless you bought 800 g of chocolate, of course ..)
Humans need to eat. Yes, we need to eat better than a lot of us do. But to describe food in categories of sin just produces a negative emotion in us, guilt. And how do fat people deal with negative emotions??? Yeah .. you see, all this talk of sin should be left to the church.
You need NOT be a Saint to live healthy. Saints are best left to church, too.
Please, speak after me:
I am not a sinner when I eat. Eating is something necessary.
I am an overeater. I eat more calories than I need. That is not a crime nor a sin. It is not healthy. But I am working to change my overeating.

I agree. We have to stop overeating and only have a small amount. Then we don’t have to think of food as sinful. I love mac and chesse and if I only had a small nappy full, it wouldn’t put the weight on.

I have this devil on my shoulder too… but guess what? I think sometimes he is right, there are days what we should cancel from our pawlenders and after such a day chocolate is the only thing what helps… except for Mark and his broken tooth, he got chocolate pudding, ha!

Poor guy! Teeth problems suck big time. How something so small can taken down your entire body is beyond this piggy. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. Tell him to get better!

he broke off one of his teeth… thought the dentist can implant an ole bubble gum or a flipper, we are ruined and efurrything is fine. but she said there is an infection we have to treat with antibiotics first, so my poor dad looks really like a pirate till next week :o(

Oh no. My mom feels for him deeply. She had a migraine from the roots of hell this weekend and could ‘feel’ her teeth moving. Shaking my head. My mom – your dad in a rehab room together. That would work brother. I hope they both feel better really, really SOON. XOXO – Bacon

I tend to overdo things too. 😀 . I was doing Bostick practice by mins but the coach said count circles not minutes. Just start with 20 on each arm he said and stay on 20 until it feels like nothing then go to 25. I had a good week. ❤

That is great! Little things are adding up and I think it finally feels like it’s coming along. We got this my friend! June
