I am a first grade teacher and recently earned National Board Certification!!!!

“As often as Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought: In their behaviour towards creatures, all men were Nazis. ” ― Isaac Singer, Vegan Writer, Nobel Prize, 1978.

"That first bite won't ever be enough, and the 1000th either" SP Friend Wish4Today.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of SELF-DISCIPLINE.

Luke 6:46
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?

Matthew 4:4
Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.

Daily Goals:

* Dedicate myself to HEALTHY VEGAN LIVING.

* Exercise at least 30 minutes per day, five days per week.

*Drink 4 cups of water by lunchtime.

*Drink 4 cups of water by dinnertime.








SOME IMPORTANT THINGS I HAVE LEARNED ON MY QUEST TO LOSE WEIGHT:

From my friend JOANNIEB, I have learned that overeating is not an effective way to cope with life's challenges.

From my friend GLORY2WALKWHIM , I have learned that I should TOLERATE IT! Hunger & cravings aren't emergencies. I can tolerate them. They are mild compared to ________. I'm going to eat again in ________ hours, anyway.



I AM LEARNING TO STRENGTHEN MY RESISTANCE MUSCLES AND WEAKEN MY GIVING IN MUSCLES. EVERY TIME I RESIST TEMPTATION, MY RESISTANCE MUSCLES ARE STRENGTHENED. EVERY TIME I GIVE IN TO TEMPTATION, MY GIVING IN MUSCLES ARE STRENGTHENED.

I UNDERSTAND NOW THAT EVERY TIME I GAVE IN, I MADE IT EASIER TO GIVE IN THE NEXT TIME.

NOW, EVERY TIME I RESIST, I MAKE IT EASIER TO RESIST THE NEXT TIME!

QUOTABLE QUOTES FOR INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION:

“Focus on what you want MOST... not what you want at the moment.”

“There's a difference between interest & commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

“A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn’t will find an excuse.”

"Fall seven times, stand up eight."
- Japanese proverb

“There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.”

"If you want real results, they're not coming for free." Jillian Michaels





THINGS I AM LEARNING TO DO:

1. Think about what I put into my body. Everything I put into my body has a consequence. Can I live with those consequences for the long term or just for a moment of pleasure?

2. Eating HEALTHY VEGAN is no longer for vanity, it is for controlling some physical symptoms of my PCOS, lowering my blood pressure, and improving my lymphatic flow.

    I love your stand for Christ on your homepage, Snow! God bless you!

    I wonder if you got your Snow White persona from the TV show "Once Upon a Time"? I love that show, but have only seen the first season. I was impressed with it! (And you're a teacher too, like she is on the show!)

    Anyway, so good to have you in the group! I always love it when new folks join the group and begin to chat--adds new life to the group! Welcome!

    Are we twins?!? I started in 2007 at 225-230! Crazy how things are like that!

    I will send you a personal message about what I'm doing this afternoon after work. It's probably going to be a long-ish one, so I didn't want to take up your whole wall!
